Holidays are over, so time to psych myself up for early starts again (yuck). Waking up before dawn is always tough, and even more so when your very comfortable cat stares at you like you’re an absolute loon! I must admit, she makes a very compelling argument to stay in bed… 🐈

A couple of days ago now, but our regular Sunday walk on the beach took place in the vicious cold and got hit by icy rain. On the plus side, the lighting got pretty spectacular. Watching my sister struggle with her umbrella looked like a shot from a movie!
Some even better news from yesterday: Gidget is back to walking around normally and insisting on going on her regular adventures. Clearly we’ll finish the anti-inflammatory regimen, but otherwise… phew! 🐱
We got to see this little guy a couple of times over the Easter long weekend! Despite Gizmo’s best efforts, he even got tricked into getting his photo taken a couple of times 🐶
Today for lunch I cooked something new: dal makhani, based on this recipe with some cheeky simplifications (like, instead of soaking and pre-cooking some lentils, I used a can 😅). It may not look like much, cos I didn’t bother with garnish, but it was delicious – like butter chicken sans the chicken.
To further enjoy the perfect weather this weekend, Viv and I made it out to Sherbrooke Forest and did a 2¼ hour walk there. Beautiful scenery, and we finished early enough to get lunch at the café on site. Awesome day 😁
Today Viv and I went on an extended beach walk to soak up this late summery spell. And the beach was definitely the place to be! Packed but still gorgeous. On our way back we decided to eat back all the calories burnt and then some, with ice cream from a new trendy place 🍨
It’s starting to feel like working is all I ever do… and Gidget’s also seemed pretty miffed at not having humans home all day. She’s been begging me not to leave in the morning, and requiring lots of affection once we get home. Viv was happy to oblige her today 🐈
Viv and I really enjoyed seeing “For a Good Time Call” at the MICF yesterday! (My sister was supposed to also come, but came down with a cold so couldn’t…) I may not be the most impartial of judges since I’ve known Urvi since primary school but if you’re in Melbourne and are interested in smart, funny commentary on mental health, Home and Away and multiculturalism then I’d really recommend this show 👍🏻
Gidget was very unimpressed to see me packing my things to head out this morning… very much like, “What do you mean you have work again? You just had that! It’s time to stay home with cat now!” Well, good news Gidget: it’s the weekend at last 😌
