Unfortunately, due to insufficient funds, the cooking is kept pretty basic at the moment. I'm starting to get the hang of cooking cheap meals. This, however, is very hard for me! I promise I'll start creating some amazing quirky desserts to post up soon...and hopefully inspire you a bit. For now, however, I think I'll sit on my floor, listen to music, paint, drink bad wine, and concentrate on just enjoying being who I am right now.

Thoughts from Tasmania
I spent the last two days in Tasmania supposedly looking for inspiration...but realistically looking for the closest bar. Funnily enough though, I left inspired. Maybe it was the amazing Jance champagne I was drinking, or just the new scenery. Either way I feel different. I had a revelation while I was away that I needed to stop looking for external things to make me happy. This whole year has been about settling into my skin for the first time in my life. So as I boarded the plane on the way home I had this small moment of gratefulness for being who I am. I was standing there on the tarmac in a little lace dress, huge trench coat, and my short red hair under a silk scarf and I thought...I'm really glad to be this person. It was such a lovely moment, and suddenly things just fell back into place. My apathy was snapped and I knew I was ready to come home to read, write, paint, but most of all...cook.
