We’ve been having some pretty neat weather here in Adelaide lately.
To celebrate, my friends Nicola and Lauren hosted a little sunny Saturday afternoon picnic in their yard last week.
As a pre-requisite, everybody had to bring a plate to share, and wear a pretty dress. So I decided to bake some berry friands, and make some cucumber sandwiches, with the crusts cut off, of course!
I had a lazy snoozy sleep in with Dana, and then had a smoothie for breakfast after which I rode my bike to the grocery store to get ingredients to bake up a storm.
The sandwiches are pretty self explanatory, but, as for the friands, I followed this recipe that I blogged about a few weeks ago – except instead of using sugared edible flowers, I used raspberries and blackberries instead. THEY WERE SO YUM! Zomg…
It was a beautiful afternoon! We sat under the tree, and stuffed our faces whilst giggling and talking about nothing much at all. And then a plumber turned up, who was then accosted with stupid questions and offerings of muffins. He was a little bashful… but who wouldn’t be? I’d definitely be scared of a bunch of giggly women if I didn’t know them!
In other news, Dana is away in Cairns at the moment – two of our dear friends are getting married! And, it turns out it ended up being half price for only one of us to go : O Who would’ve thought it?? So, being the benevolent lover that I am, I decided I would stay at home.
But it’s actually because I am starting a new job tomorrow! Wow, after a nine month break from working, I am feeling a happy mixture of nervesomgiamgonnapuke and excitement.
But, rest assured, the position is not full-time, so I will still have time to keep updating the happy haps here.
So, with Dana gone, I plan to sleep diagonally, catch up on lots of photo editing, and probably spend too much time on instagram. My. Goodness. I am addicted to that app! (my username is othersuchthings if you wanted to have a look!)
Anyway, I must be off, I have to paint my fingernails, wax the eyebrows, pack a lunch and pick out an outfit. All in lieu of tomorrow! Wish me luck!
