Strawberry Sunday

What are your strawberries? You know those beautiful moments of total, bliss-kissed happy stuff that make you glad to be alive? Welcome to Strawberry Sunday – where we all get the chance to show a li’l bit o’ love and gratitude for the bliss-kissed moments o’ the past week…

Here are mine…

★ I discovered my domestic goddess-y ways, and guess what? I really rather like it. I've been staying at the Beau's since Thursday, a kinda trial run before the big event, and we went to Ikea and bought furniture and y'know, general pretties like candles and prints, we then went food shopping and I've cooked nothing but deliciousness ever since. This may not seem like a big deal, but ask anyone who knows me, I am renown for my lack o' kitchen prowess. 'Til now that is. My gorgeous friend Cheryl has helped me to change that story over the last year, teaching me to cook yumz and giving me the confidence to go explore this cooking malarky for myself, for which I think the Beau is VERY grateful for. My highlight s'far? Making my own home-made pesto - dee-freakin'-lish. If you ask nicely, I might share my recipe with you...

★ My slanket. I cannot express my love for this item of pure, unadulterated comfort. That is all.

★ Inspiration in the form of my gal-pal, Miss Aimz - over sausage and mash, she kicked my ass in the best possible way.

★ Sassy Sorcery - I have had a really rough first draft of my new book, Sassy Sorcery sitting on my desktop waiting to be edited, sprinkled with a hefty dose o' magick and tied up in a very pretty 1950's vintage style bow. 'Cept I've been ignoring it. 'Til Friday, when I opened it for the first time in a month and fell in love with it all over again, realised what was missing, invited some VERY cool people to come play, and they ALL said yes the very next day - holler! I remember signing the contract for this book and being beside myself with joy that I was writing my first grown-up girl book, so I excitedly just went ahead and wrote it. Then got scared. But, as of Friday I got un-scared. I'm now crazy-excited to finish it - deadline is Jan 31st, putting it out there, so I'm accountable - eep!

★ Cuddles on the sofa with the Beau. There really is nothing better.

★ Cookies and Cream Frijj milkshakes. AH-FREAKIN'-MAZIN'.

★ That all my beautiful Aussie friends are safe, and that they continue to stay that way in the crazy weather conditions that they're dealing with over there right now...

★ I'm no longer cool. I used to be so 'on it' where the charts and new music were concerned. Throughout college I was the go-to girl if you needed to know about the newest jangly, Converse-wearing guitar band, but this morning, I watched a music channel and realised I didn't know any of the acts - and d'you know what? I didn't care. I did however discover I quite liked Tiny Tempah. Who knew?!

What are yours?
