It has been brought to my attention that Ped hasn’t featured in an update for a while…and to be honest the little guy hasn’t been high up in my list of favourite people. He went overboard while Muz was in India, deciding I clearly wasn’t up to the task of protecting the house and so would rush out the gate at any given chance, barking at whoever had the temerity to walk along the street. One day, just as I was struggling out the gate with pram and dog, I lent down to clip on his lead but I was too slow – he ran down our street, across another street (in front of two cars) just to bark at some poor woman walking down the pavement on the other side of the road. Sigh. He’s had a go at puppies in the park (always popular) and has vomited on the carpet. Last night he barked and woke Josie. So I’m kind of over him. And I know it’s us who need to help him out, but I’m frustrated with him now and I can’t seem to make him get it. I have wanted to list him on ebay several times. Right now he’s being cute and sleeping next to me, and he’s dreaming, his little paws twitching away as he chases something in his sleep.
In other news, I did a restaurant review for Box mag last night. Marsh and I went to A Tavola, just near home in Darlinghurst (Muz was off playing golf in Perth, so Marsh and I enjoyed a girls’ night out). The food was nommy and it was fun to be out at night like a real adult. Of course I’m always pleased to get home and see that Bunny is fine, but it is good to get out. And I’m totally excited to have something to write again.
And we have a new addition to the Wheater household…
Isn’t she lovely?? She’s the almond cream (it was that or the pistachio). I’ve lusted after one of these for so long, and finally decided enough was enough. Sure, I’m not much of a baker but hopefully this will change all that. Sure, I have nowhere to store it, or the million pans I’m going to have to buy, but whatevs. I’m just excited to be all Betty Housewife and makes birthday cakes for Bunny. If anyone has any recipes I have to try or anything you want me to attempt and post a pic of, just let me know. In other exciting news, Drew also has something to show you in the Kitchenaid vein…check it out. It’s not up there yet (come on Drew) but it will be soon. And he also has a new friend called Betsy that you need to meet.
And in other food news, Muz and I went to Quay ages ago (did I already tell you this?). It was so great. Amaaaazing. The sort of thing were you go “I can normally figure out roughly how they did that. I have NO idea how they did that”. Just a really special night. And of course I had a snow egg. It was great, but when something is so hyped it’s easy to fall in to the trap of expecting it to change your life, which of course, it won’t. I actually think I liked Muz’s dessert more.
So aside from making a cake or something else with my new toy, the next thing on the Wheater horizon is a trip to Tasmania for Easter. I’m pretty excited for it. It’ll be great to have a little getaway, and it’s a short flight which is good news for people with babies.
Speaking of babies, I can hear that she’s waking. Here are a couple of recent pics to finish off with…can you believe she’s six months old now??
