Whooooa this Easter long weekend business has totally thrown me out! To follow - some snaps of the week so far...
In exciting news, the little semi-tame cat that my parents have been feeding had kittens recently*, and mumma-cat brought them up to the house at the weekend (one by one, in her mouth) - honestly, the cuteness, I just about died
Nawwwww how adorable! I seriously want to adopt all 4 of them - but I am concerned that 6 cats would be bordering on crazy cat lady status - thoughts?
V and I kicked off Monday morning with brekky at lee&me...
Delish bircher muesli!
Still loving this Sussan oversized knit sick! Seriously cuddle-tastic
The hydrangea obsession continues - tres sad that the season is drawing to a close!
I gave my new CWA cookbook a whirl on Monday afternoon
Fan-bloody-tastic choc chip cookie recipe alert!
Roast lamb, lemon roast potatoes and minted broad beans for dinner
I asked Jasper whether I could bring home one of the kittens - his displeasure was palpable to say the least
I am in luuuurve with my new Oroton handbag, but it is not the friend of a freshly-manicured hand! Such a narrow opening, I bodgied up my nails twice today on the zipper *sadface*
Had lunch at etch today with the Judge and some other past associates - on approach, from across the street, I witnessed a huge group of people on the front steps of the intercontinental. My thoughts were that either a) the hotel has been evacuated or b) there is some sort of protest going on. On closer approach, they were all young girls - some sort of militant, female teenage protest maybe?
Some kind passerby took pity on me and my bemused look, and informed me there was a "boyband" in the lobby of the hotel. I believe they are called New Directions? Anyways, thank the lord I didn't have to fight my way through the melee to get to my delicious snapper lunch
This lemon parfait was fantastic, the coconut flesh and pineapple was particularly tasty!
Super-excitement on finding half-prize delicious camembert! Win!
Roast veges, quinoa and goats cheese for din-dins...
It is definitely hot water bottle weather! I can hear my gorgeous friend A snickering all the way from Canberra - "You think that's cold Cate? Try 1°C of an evening!" I hear you A, and I shiver in sympathy!
It is also hot cocoa weather - I am a weirdo and prefer mine sans sugar. Mmmmm
Hope the week has been good to you all! Hurrah that the weekend is nigh!
* the local cat rescue peeps are savvy to the sich with the kittens and will be called out in the very near future to collect said kittens for adoption - mumma-cat is to be desexed and returned to my parents. Just in case any mad animal activists read my post and think we be crazy cat-hoarding hippies!
