I’ve heard it said before that the days are long but the years are short and that’s how life feels at the moment. Days are creeping by full of an apparently endless number of contracts that need to be reviewed and an overflowing inbox. But when I stop for a minute and look up, I realise that it’s almost October (!) and everyone is making plans for summer holidays and talking Christmas. While it feels horribly wasteful to be wishing days to pass, I’m so ready for fruitcake and longer days, not to mention a holiday. I think we’re going to stay close to home this Christmas, maybe visit Mudgee (just to stay here!) and / or Hyams Beach.
Apart from plenty of wanderlust, there isn’t much else happening around here at the moment. I do have a brownie recipe ready to share soon, but in the meantime, here are some things I’ve been reading lately.
Marmalade appears to be the flavour of the month – this zucchini marmalade loaf is my new favourite thing.
Prince Alfred Park is one of my favourite spaces in Sydney. Can’t wait to swim there again soon.
A new cocktail spot
The only way I’ll get a tan this summer.
