Weekend in Adelaide

SJ and I drove to Adelaide for the Australia Day long weekend. Not a lot to report, the weekend was fun and relaxing yet I came back incredibly tired.

One more week.

Earlier this week, my laptop stopped turning on, something I consider to be quite a vital element in using it. Luckily it  was fixed without me losing any data. Huge relief, I have been putting a lot of effort into a project lately and would have been incredibly upset to lose it all.

Christmas Catch Up #4

I have to admit, I find heading home for Christmas to be a little exhausting. Not just from the 21 hour drive to get there. Living away from all of our family and friends means out catch up list is usually quite long.

Christmas Catch Up #3

My mother and sisters know about this blog and have taken to reading it on occasion. Apparently the criteria for a good present this year wasn't 'something Ash would like' but 'something Ash would blog about'.

I was rather spoiled this Christmas but don't want to bombard you with every little thing I received, so here are the highlights...

Christmas Catch Up #2

So after driving for a three days to get home for Christmas, it would make sense that SJ wanted to make macarons, right? Sadly not his best batch but I think the lack of patience to sift almond meal can be forgiven. These ones are candy cane flavoured, the ganache is made from melted candy canes, white chocolate, butter and cream.

Christmas Catch Up #1

This blog and I have had a rather long distance relationship of late. So now, three weeks after Christmas, when everyone is back at work and finally getting on with their lives...I'm going to update you all on my Christmas in Brisbane.

Starting with...the drive from Melbourne to Brisbane.
