It might seem like I’ve been a really slack blogger lately, but I have a good excuse, honestly!
A few months back I started to have some ‘digestive issues’. (I’ll spare you the details.) They were recurrent, appeared suddenly, and meant that I’ve missed about 7 days of work in the last few months.
The GP, the gastroenterologist and I were all stumped. The ‘episodes’ didn’t seem to relate to anything I ate and all test results had come back negative. Finally I asked my GP if I should see a dietitian…
What a horrible week it’s been, with the awful news about the seige in Sydney. It’s really knocked everyone around – even as far away as here in Melbourne. It’s been hard to feel merry and bright for Christmas, but we’re trying!
Back in the real world
Well, that was a bigger blogging break than I was expecting to take! After Mum went into hospital, our time was totally absorbed with organising care and support for her – and in the midst of all that were my daughter’s year 12 formal and exams.
Well, exams are over now, and we finally took Mum home last week, so I think I might be safe to poke my nose out and see what’s happening in the real world!
Just near my work is a funny little café. It’s really easy to miss, because it’s tucked into the National Postal Service bluestone building. It’s called Roll Lane.
Yesterday was International Day of Happiness. Is this the first one? I’ve never even heard of it before, but I like it. Yes, I’m a day late, but I really want to slap up a quick post!

I’d never had a lot of luck browning tofu…or tempeh or burgers. I usually seemed to leave half the tofu stuck to my ‘non-stick’ pan when I flipped it over with my thick plastic spatula – so when I got Isa Does It, and read that Isa recommends a cast iron pan for frying tofu, I was itching to give it a try.
I’m taking a short break. I have labyrinthitis and computer screens are making me nauseous.
See you when my room stops spinning…
My ceiling rose that has been zipping around in an anti-clockwise direction.. Arghhhh!
I much prefer Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo!
I’m one of those list makers. I hope I haven’t just revealed some deep psychological weirdness with that admission, but it will explain why I was so excited to see the recent ‘A-Z Bookish Survey’ going around recently. It’s not (necessarily) animal rights/vegan related, but I’m going to do it anyway, because…well, I can’t resist a list!
