real life

If you've been here before you know I'm full of grateful posts, what's happening now posts, inspired by xyz posts. 

Not so much today. 

Today I'm uninspired by:

:: the hit and run driver who killed my friend's cat. In front of their three year old. 

:: the fact my lovely man's name begins "ad" and is therefore listed in many, many people's phones first and really you wouldn't believe the number of "bum calls" we get at two in the morning. Like this morning. 

:: mountains of never ending laundry.

:: the start of school again tomorrow. Henry's excited. I have Mondayitis. 

:: tempeh

:: the distance between Sydney and Frankfurt. 

But that's life in real time, right? 

There is, however, always a Tilly. A chirpy, funny, spirited adventurer/botanist/naturalist who's always up for some cooking of cupcakes. 



A Tilly wearing red sparkly shoes. 

'Cause there's no place like home. 

I think we all need some shoes like that. (Particularly my Germany-based sister and I…)

Yes, you need some red sparkly shoes to cheer you up after that lot. What a loser to hit-and-run a cat. Poor kid to have to see it.

So sorry about the hit and run.

Love those sparkly shoes. I have some similar but they are just red. No sparkles. I want more sparkles!

Aw hon, I feel the same about the distance between London and Hobart/Melbourne/Perth πŸ™‚ some days it just really gets you down. I was in Frankfurt last week for work, I should have gone and given your sis a hug from you πŸ™‚


PS: I’m making your bread as we speak πŸ™‚ It was very timely you mentioned the whole iron thing as I think that’s why we’ve been tired too. Us veggies got to stick together πŸ™‚

*Sigh*…*Sniff*…oh, and awesome shoes. Do they come in a bigger (like, really big) size?

I know. Dreadful. Although I think it was actually the parents who were more traumatised.

oooh, but red shoes will do! there’s something chemical in the way they can brighten up a day.

ah yes, if I could just make a short work trip to Frankfurt I’d be apples. Throwing some flaxeed (linseed) into the bread really helps too!

Am looking for some with ACTUAL tranlocative powers to ship to you immediately.

Thank you! It’s Monday morning and everything seems bright again today. xxx

I’ve always wanted shoes like that. Even now. By the way, tempeh is awesome. You just have to avoid the second rate stuff from the supermarket.
