I’m terrible Muriel…Posted: June 27, 2011
Yeech…where does the time go.
I have no unique excuses for my absence…just what plagues everyone else..that darn clock.
Hope all’s been well in your worlds. Between visitors, 3 trips to the airport in one week, being an agony aunt and sprinting up the terrace for Court in heels (albeit wedges…do they still count?), I am spent.
But that’s boring, here’s some pictures with what I’ve been doing lately (sorry no outfit post yet…I had a bit of a hair crisis this last couple of weeks. Platinum and I aren’t the friends the hairdreser obviously thought we were).
Desert Darling jinxed me…I attempted a beetroot and chocolate cake (please don’t pull the doubtful face my husband did when I mentioned my plans).I’ve had a few failures and this was a wonderful example! Murdering the beetroot out of my Dad’s garden is where it should have ended:
Pretty view from the office:
I got to sit in an Aston Martin the other day…the whole $500k of it (really, you’d think they’d make them more roomy for that sort of price 😉 ):
These are our new bedside tables. I picked up two $59 bedside tables from Ikea and then shamelessly copied this wonderful design from Aubrey & Lindsay. It was great fun and very easy. The crazy kelly green lamps on the bedside are also a DIY – better pics next time:
Yesterday afternoon I made Stephanie Alexander’s Rhubarb and Cinnamon Cake (my husband almost trusts my cooking again after the beetroot debacle..give this a go for something different if you can get your hands on some el cheapo beetroot at the markets…not the daylight robbery of $5 a bunch at the supermarket):
