In no particular order, things I've loved about this week:
My new mug that's specifically for that first cup of tea in the morning with breakfast. It's a spendy one from Wedgwood's Jasper Conran range and I just love everything about it. There's a bit of a restrained Versace look going on with the detailing and the handle but there's still also that Modern British overall feel to it.
Speaking of Mordern British... the Duchess of Cambridge this week. In Chanel and in Paris. Not totally sold about the belt (could've just gone with the CCs and not the buckele, but that's just me) but I love the way the bag and dress aren't matchy matchy or the usual monochrome look Chanel is usually associated with.
And there have been days with skies that are more grey than anything else. Yes, I'm back at the pool and my right shoulder did an admirable job through all that freestyle and then that short burst of breast stroke at the end.
I took the train from Central to Epping and that was a bit of an adventure because I think I was actually on an intercity train. The seats were a bit luxe and us Sydney commuters were only allowed to sit in the first four carriages at central. There was an air of longish travels in our carriage with suitcases here and there as well as substantial snacks like meat pies being consumed. I returned home via Town Hall which I think is where I should've started from in the first place. Regular Epping to the CBD commuters above you, is Town Hall where you aim for rather than Central?
No trip to Town Hall station is complete without a quick trot through the sort of China Town section of George Street. Here I am at Daiso at Regent Place spending $50 on emergency supplies of my favourite Korean seaweed laver and Japanese sesame oil.
And finally, home made fish and chips for dinner. As the days get shorter and it looks cooler (only it's so darn humid in reality) my taste buds have begun to crave a solid carbohydrate for dinner. We're loving home made potato wedges at the moment but I hope to try making them out of sweet potato next time. The baked salmon was made using Martha Stewart's Mustard Glazed Salmon recipe. Don't forget the dill!
