Meet Sally. She loves eating cereal and has had a life-long battle with big hair. She has tried all sorts of haircuts with unfortunate results, the worst being the "pixie" crop she once had that landed her on a list of hairstyle don'ts. Sally now thinks big accessories will help camouflage the boof. What do you think?

Last night I went to the Plush You! show at Munky King. There are so many talented softie makers out there, I was in total awe. I absolutely fell in love with Amelie by A Little Sprout and I wished to take her home but I had already blown my budget for the week on a pair of Swedish Hasbeens. If only I could turn back time!

Tonight I made these delicious chicken pies from a recipe I found on Shutterbean. It took a bit of effort making everything from scratch. I couldn't cheat, like I usually would have, by using store bought pastry because my husband is trying out a gluten-free diet. I substituted the celery and peas for corn and asparagus instead and it worked out great! Too good actually...I scoffed down one too many and am now suffering from inside-out tummy. Be warned.

Freddy the fat squirrel is quite jolly and has a penchant for anything sweet spiked with a bit of alcohol...his favourite thing to raid for outside The Chatty Squirrel Cafe is crumbs of Double Chocolate Kahlua Cake. Very occasionally when he has too much cake he tends to talk for hours on end, do a jig, flash a passerby and finally pass out with a bit of fur shaved off.

I ran out of time today so I didn't get to finish my painting but I thought I'd show the sketch anyway since it's been a few days since my last post. What did I do today? Oh so much cleaning, then my usual run to the post office and Trader Joe's for groceries, after which I got caught up with reading Just Kids by Patti Smith, one of the better books I've picked up this year. Now I'm off to make dinner and fit in a workout afterward...back tomorrow!

On Saturday we (my husband and little sister) decided to drive to Venice and go for a walk around the canals. It was really amazing to see such different styles of housing sitting next to one another. In Melbourne we're used to a more uniform appearance when it comes to our architecture - you would never see a little English cottage two doors down from a flamingo fence, next a modern play box, opposite a castle! Unbelievable!
