Thoughts of the week…

I hope everyone had a lovely New Years Eve and welcomed 2013 with no hangover and an excess of positive energy to face the new year. I welcomed 2013 with a mild hangover and very little energy, but I’m all better now. In the words of Taylor Swift, “It’s a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.”

01) I’ve developed an unhealthy addiction to Wattle Valley’s olive medley and feta dip.

02) I successfully hooked two friends into watching Parks and Recreation recently and you’re next. PLEASE watch this show if you don’t already, it’s pure comedy genius.

03) I fell in love with this top while browsing the ShopBop sale, but I just can’t justify spending any money on clothes this month. I’m still catching up on paying everything off from December so I’ll show marvelous restraint and pass on this beautiful blouse.

04) Every year around this time living in Perth is like you’re in a bubble of fire approaching the sun and the past week has been just like that. I’m still not down with 43C heat, despite living in Perth for 28 years.

05) I’ve had this song on repeat all week. Ed Sheeran is my new favourite everything.

06) Did you know pavlova ice-cream was a thing?

07) I started running training again. Prepared to be bored by future running posts!

08) American Horror Story returned this week, and the episode apparently held a clue to what season 3 will be about. I hope this scene was a clue that season 3 will be a merger with Glee, and Darren Criss will be making a guest appearance.

09) My current breakfast obsession is fresh peach with soy yogurt and toasted muesli. Perfect for the hot weather when it can sometimes be too warm to contemplate eating anything in the morning.

10) If you haven’t already entered my book giveaway, be sure to go and do so now. It’s open internationally – good luck!
