This Wednesday's child's not full of woe...

I'm feeling quite perky this Wednesday. Maybe it's cause I only had to get up once in the night to tend to a kid. Maybe it's cause the two munchkins had a couple of hours at kindy this morning and I got to do nothing except read a book. Bliss! Even though I felt incredibly guilty about not doing all the things I shoulda, coulda done.

So to spread the cheer, here are some of the things that are making me chipper today:

These delicious pork and chive dumplings from Shanghai Night, Ashfield, Sydney. 
Add chilli + soy = Heaven on a plate!

Her sweet voice and sledgehammer lyrics make me smile.

Reading this while the kids were having fun at kindy. Takes me back to working in an office and makes me think about 'what could have been' if I was ambitious, worked hard and, well, liked magazines.

Going to Canberra to see the Masterpieces from Paris exhibition very soon. 

The start of the autumn carnival!

Happy Wednesday to you all.


  1. I love your passion for Shanghai food... I was one second away from moving there to teach and still have going there on my to-do list! I just finished Mama Mia. It was good, interesting, not as good as I had thought it would be though!! Glad you had some me-time chillin' with a book! Its the goods !!! Enjoy rest of your Wednesday

  2. I'm obsessed at the moment, Sharni! I can't stop thinking about dumplings!! Would move to Shanghai just for the dumplings.
    We actually considered moving there briefly for Skip's work.

  3. I want those dumplings. Even the crappy ones served up on Come Dine With Me last night had me drooling...

  4. That cheered me up Rin, hope you had a lovely Wednesday. xx

  5. Oh my I have been wanting to try those dumplings for some time now. My bestie lives around the corner from me and has been singing their praises for some time now. I am fully inspired now thank you :)

  6. And by from "me" I meant "there" around the corner from THERE...I was too excited to type properly.

  7. Beth - you wont be disappointed, the dumplings are to die for. The decor, not so much, but the man sits in the corner making the dumplings by hand. It doesn't matter if the kids make a huge mess. All in all, it's always a good time had by all.

    Sarah - glad to cheer you up!


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
