I missed the end of July because I was far too busy eating nice Turkish food for dinner with Tinniegirl, but I didn't want to miss out on the monthly Just a Minute wrap so her 'tis:
I was completly addicted to Masterchef. I would time my dinner so that I could sit down and eat at 7PM and watch Masterchef (and secretly wish that I was eating whatever they were cooking - especially if it was a dessert), so now I'm a little lost.....
I'm so glad that Project Runway Australia has resumed for the year. I love all the bitchy remarks between the contestants, and Henry is a hoot! Of course, being crafty, I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want to watch sewing on tv.
I can't forget Brothers and Sisters..... is there anyone else who wants to save Rob Lowe from his on screen marriage woes?
Lots and lots of stuff this month.... it's all been a bit of a blur. There have been handbags, drawstring bags, brooches, purses, tea towel aprons, pants, trackie daks, bibs, blankies.
Sometimes, I tend to wonder what I actually do all day, until I actually sit down and review the previous month. I actually do make quite a lot of stuff.
If you saw my house at the moment.... it's like a craft supplies bomb exploded - bits and pieces all everywhere. Lucky I don't have a family that needs a dinner table to eat meals on!
Yummy turkish food lastnight - a few packets of tim tams during the month. I did manage to have capsicum dip and barbecue shapes for tea one night (after all, capsicum is healthy - right?). My sister also found me a big packet of Colvan Chicken Chips at IGA last week. They were our absolute favourite back in our younger (and much more silly) days. I haven't seen Colvan chips for years.
I finished The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl. It was a great read, and even more funny that she started out as a blogger.
I've nearly finished The Bad Mothers Handbook by Kate Long. It's another great chick book - easy to read and funny as well.
I;ve just borrowed my sister copy of AWW with Magda on the cover. I'm not very happy with Magda since she announced on A Current Affair (which I really shouldn't watch because it's rubbish), that being obese was like being disabled. I'm sure that if she had to deal with a lifelong disability, or spoke to families with disabled children, then she might just regret that statement.
OK - off my soapbox now.
To Ministry of Sound Chill Out Sessions compilations - I have all of them from the previous ten years or so. It's great sewing music. I need to head to a CD shop to pick up the latest offering, Uncovered.
To actually make some stock for my next Made'n'Thornbury market on September 5th.
With lots of different fabrics and textures - still not sure if my ideas will come to fruition.
Of fibre and fabric and texture and colour.... all melding into one.
Looking forward to:
One of my girlfriends having a new little bubba very very soon!
Play along with Just a Minute next month by joining up over at August Street.
