It rained a lot last night.

Water streamed into the garage, but fortunately didn't do any damage this time.

Friday morning I cooked dinner.

But because I didn't have time to fry down the mushrooms, there was a *lot* of liquid in it.  So it was very watery :(

Still, our dinner guests (EffanC) enjoyed it.

After dinner we watched Rocky Horror and then Frozen.  Yeah same movies as we watched with Marc and Jo the other week!  Silly really.  Stayed up quite late chatting.

In the morning we all went out for breakfast to A Baker.  The celeriac didn't work that well for me, but the whipped feta and bacon were great.

In the afternoon I did some organising of our filing.  Still a long way to go though!  In the evening we watched The Railway Man.  I wasn't in the right mindset to begin with, so found it a little tough going at the beginning, but once I'd settled into it I thought it was pretty good.

Today was more organising of finances.  We went for a walk to hack some portals and then got laughed at by the fairy wrens who wouldn't stay still to be documented.

Then had lunch at Fortune Box (a rather nice dish of pork, duck and more pork, with duck egg) before doing our food shopping.

This was dinner - a recipe out of my newest Women's Weekly cookbook - harissa roast chicken.  It also included a stuffing of Stu's suggestion, of butter, mushroom, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

The harissa was a tad burnt, and a tad too spicy for me, and the stuffing didn't really add much.  But the chicken and veggies were certainly yummy.

After dinner we went over to Annie's for a while to say hi and have some dessert.

A few things

I tried a new bus route today.  The drop off is a little closer to home than the other indirect bus I sometimes get, which would make for about a 23 minute trip - still faster than taking the bus the whole way home, plus I get a fifteen minute walk up the hill.  Although it took slightly longer today because I had to go kill a portal.

Here's some galahs we saw while out for a walk a few weeks ago.

This had to be smashed, so the sweetie and I killed it all

Here's a bus being towed  (!!)

And here's a warm lamb Greek salad.  There was leftover roast lamb that needed eating, so fried that up to get it scrumptious, then mixed it with greek seasoning, olives, fetta, capsicum and cucumber.  It was delicious.

Disaster Night

| | Comments (0)

Tuesday is disaster porn night.  An episode of Air Crash Investigations I'd seen, and one I hadn't.

Put the time to good use, finishing off a jigsaw I started earlier in the year but never finished because it's too cold downstairs in winter.  And I also started to tidy up a little downstairs (didn't make much progress, but every little bit helps, right?).

Much of today was spent prepping for some work I want to do on Friday.  Who knew removing firewall rules was so much more work than creating them!?  Mind you, if other people were as good at their doco as we were, it'd be a *lot* easier. *sigh*

I got nothing

Lined up all my holiday piles of paper tonight, dating back to 2008.  It covers the length of the dining table.  Some are better sorted than others.

But I did find the one million mark note that we bought in Germany on our honeymoon but then couldn't find.  So that was good.

Then some tv and jigsaw.
