Dirty Thirty

That’s right, I can no longer say I’m twenty-something. Do I feel dirty? Only if I haven’t showered (which happens now and then when Abby’s demanding). How about old? Well, yes, and no. It’s a little getting used to when the decade changes. I remember feeling proud when I could say I was in my…

Cupcake Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations Leonie on winning! As much as I’d love to share my freshly baked cupcakes with everyone, sending them in the post isn’t going to happen (they’ll get probably get eaten on the way to the post office anyway). The good news is I’m giving away one of my cupcake…

Baby Update at 29 Weeks

Resources tell me that my blood volume is now double the normal. That explains the blood noses I’m having at least twice a day. My belly button now looks like a moon crater with raised edges.  I wonder what it will do by the end of this trimester… On Sunday I had my baby shower.…

Cupcakes!

I love baking cupcakes, and realised that I don’t actually have many photos of them online. So here are some now :) Well, we’re not American, but Obama’s presidency gave me an excuse to be silly with cupcakes. If you want to know what I mean, see my post on Cocktails and Obama Cakes. All…

Project 365: Week 11

My week in photos as part of Project 365: Thursday 12 March 2009 Wilson $3 parking. Look closer. It’s for half an hour. And what kicked me in the guts more was that on a Saturday Sunday I parked here assuming (stupidly) that it was one of the Wilson $3-all-day weekend parking lots. Nope. At…

I have a shop

That’s right. I have fallen into the Asian shop owner stereotype and have opened up a shop. My Eggshell Green shop on etsy.com is ready for your browsing pleasure.

Project 365: Week 9

My week in photos as part of Project 365: Thursday 26 February 2009 Shooters after work for some drinks, nibbles and pool. One of my nicknames is monkey, so I had to take this picture of their cocktail menu. Friday 27 February 2009 I adopt a new soft toy at work. I name him Ping…

Project 365: Week 3

My week in photos as part of Project 365: Thursday 15 January 2009 I finally wear a skirt to work today – first time for years. Usually it’s too cold inside with the air conditioning, but we’ve fixed that so hooray! Awful photo. Friday 16 January 2009 The four of us take off after work…

Black Forest Cupcakes

If you’re looking for something to bring to a Christmas lunch or dinner, here’s an idea. I had been wanting to make black forest cupcakes for months but hadn’t gotten around to it – mainly because they have fresh cream instead of icing so it was best to wait until there was an occasion where…
