One down many to go!

After a little bit of retail therapy I headed off for my first run back. It was going well thanks to a lovely tail wind and a I managed an hour of walk/run so I am feeling good!







Running

In and effort to get myself back into a good fitness routine I am going to try and get back into my running. One of my best methods of motivation is either reading running magazines or hanging out with my old triathlon buddies! So I am going to make a pact with myself to run every day and get myself back to the point where I can go for a nice long slow run! Wish me luck! I will keep a dairy on my blog to track how I go!

Masterchef

I am loving the fact that Masterchef is back - and it goes for 1.5 hours every night!! It gets even more interesting once there are a few less contestants...

Bring it on

I am seriously hanging out for our trip to Thailand. Can't wait for some relaxation and a break from work!!
One of the hotels we are staying at in Krabi is located with a view across to the Hong Islands which we plan to explore by kayak!
So apart from working flat out - I have been trying lots of new cooking creations as well as another Jamie Oliver book - I am obsessed with his recipes. I have 3 custom wedding invitations on the go through my etsy shop so that is exciting.
Hope everyone is going well xx

Jerry's

Today we visited Jerry's Cafe in Elwood. I have been wanting to try it for approximately 5 years! The corn and dill pikelets with salmon was our first pick but unfortunately the pikelets had run out!! oh no - I was seriously nearly crying. So I had the caramelised banana porridge. Hmm not the best ever. Anyway this weekend I am going to make our own corn and dill pikelets with the salmon and maybe next time we try Jerry's they will have some left. Loving the Italian Food Safari tonight! Farewell Bruce M.

New stuff

So now that the wedding is over I will need to re-direct my blogging energy. I just have to work out where! At the moment I am focussing on: 1. The honeymoon 2. Growing our business 3. Getting back into my cycling 4. Improving my cooking. The weather is certainly getting colder here in Melbourne and next thing on my list of movies to see is Micmacs. Be back with more soon!

Yay!!!!!!

Food

So I thought it was about time to mention one of my favourite blogs. One of my old design school/triathlon friends, she is always posting amazing photos, great recipes and crafty goodness! One of her recent posts related to Jamie Olivers Ministry of Food book. I had been holding on to a book voucher since my birthday and put it to good use to get this book. The principle behind the book is to inspire people to get in the kitchen and create their own meals and share them with others. My cooking was in need of some help basically because I am time poor, and my *husband* is a better cook. So I am working on this now, reading all of the gourmet travellers I can get my hands on and preparing to cook up a storm. Tomorrow night we are having guests for dinner and preparing homemade pizza for entree, four cheese gnocchi with walnuts, and Jamies Mega Chocolate Fudge Cake for dessert! My etsy shop is going well with lots of fun international orders which is great! Not long now till the honeymoon and I can't wait to sit on a sunlounge with a Singha in hand!
