June was short, sweet and action packed. There was fun with family, fun with friends, wining, dining and celebrations a-plenty. All in all it was a most satisfying thirty days and before I jump into July, I’m going to take stock. I’d love it if you joined me!
Visiting: The Tea Cosy for some superior sconeage! See above!
Making: The AWW Bunny Cake for our god-daughter’s 7th Birthday. It went down a treat!
Whipping: Up batches of Lemon Butter. Can’t stop, won’t stop!
Baking: These Jammie White Chocolate Blondies. They’re jamtastic!
Cooking: Pies, pies and more pies!
Revamping: The recipe for these delicious Lemon and Blueberry Muffins.
Eating: Out a lot more than usual.
Drinking: A glass of red wine with dinner. It’s the perfect weather for it!
Tasting: The best Australian wines at the Good Food and Wine Show.
Smelling: These Caramel Apple Muffins baking – they smell so good!
Trying: My first Curry Pan – it’s like a curry donut – have you ever had one?!
Contemplating: Buying the new Thermomix and selling my old one.
Needing: Not much… But a few extra hours in the day would be nice!
Wearing: Winter clothes I forgot that I had!
Liking: Winter weather – it’s perfect for beanies!
Disliking: Dark early evenings – it’s almost impossible to get a good food photo.
Enjoying: This fresh bounty from my neighbour’s family farm.
Volunteering: At the Asylum Seekers Centre – it’s been way too long between visits!
Missing: Vivid for a variety of reasons – too tired, too cold, too busy and/or too wet.
Flying: Qantas to Brisbane and having a whole row to myself.
Facing: My fears and sitting by the window to get this photo.
Travelling: For the first time with cabin baggage only and my Qantas Gold Frequent Flyer tags.
Staying: At the Ibis Styles Brisbane – a great budget option with amazing views!
Loving: The view from my hotel window… Especially with a ginormous rainbow! This photo doesn’t do it justice.
Trying: My hand at meditation with Alex.
Learning: Bloggy business at Bupa with the Bupa Blogger Alumnae.
Hanging: Out with bloggy buddies including Karin and Lauren.
Discovering: Some of the best coffee spots in Brisvegas.
Choosing: Coffee shops like I choose my wine – the ones with the most fun names. Case in point – Frisky Goat Espresso for the win!
Borrowing: Some really good books from the library.
Reading: Lucy Bloom’s Get the Girls Out was a yay, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers was a nay.
Watching: Dirty John. Unbelievable!
Listening: To the podcast of Dirty John.
Binging: On the podcast The Prodfather. It has to be heard to be believed!
Waiting: For the new series of Queer Eye in July. I know I shouldn’t wish my life away but…
Improving: My French watching the new Netflix show Black Spot.
Crying: At the new Netflix documentary Life In the Doghouse.
Falling: In love with all the dogs.
Applying: To strata for permission to have a dog and getting permission. We are beyond excited.

Catching: Up with interstate and overseas friends at home and away.
Celebrating: My niece’s Bat-Mitzvah with friends and family.
Deciding: Not to enter the Sydney Harbour 10K this year. I’m just not run ready. My FOMO is real!
