Top 10 little dots of happy from my weekend - yesterday, today & tomorrow


1. finding my latest copy of mixtape in my letterbox

2. meeting a blog-friend for the first time and chatting over a couple of glasses of red wine on a cold Friday night in Melbourne town.

3. executing a pike on the fitball during my pilates class this morning, whilst maintaining neutral spine, activating my T-A muscles, drawing up my pelvic floor, and breathing!

4. cleaning my studio/yoga room to an almost holy state of tidy. memo: take photo as evidence

5. listening to Mark Lanegan's deep, sexy voice blending with Isobel Campbell's ethereal tones on their latest offering; Sunday at Devil Dirt

6. working up a good rhythm on my Honeycomb vest whilst tucked up in my favourite lounge chair

7. baking bread smells emanating from my kitchen - mmm, rosemary and sea salt bread for my soup tonight...

8. making plans to head out for breakfast tomorrow with my sister-in-law for some good old fashioned girl-chat!

9. writing a letter - an actual letter, not a Facebook wall post, not a msn, not a txt, but an actual letter - to a long-lost but recently reconnected friend, and knowing that she will just get the whole pen-to-paper thing

10. The crisp, clear air of a (briefly) sunny winter's day in Melbourne, what more could one ask for?

hope your weekend is shaping up just as nicely for you :)

Sunny days in winter are a fave of mine, too. And, reading of your homemade bread flavoured with a little sea salt and rosemary has made a perfectly delightful crumpet (liberally covered with vegemite) loose a little of its appeal. I'd happily swap my afternoon snack for a nose of your bread.

Just popped in to say hi, I crochet, but I can also knit.

An actual letter? I'm so impressed.
I got a postcard the other day and it was one of the happiest moments of my week.

A timely reminder: I must write more letters.
