May is rather exhausting.
I have mentioned this before, but I really would love to have my brain magically connected to my blog because so many times over the past few days and even weeks I found myself thinking about all the things I wanted to blog about.
Although I always had written these blog posts in my mind already, I never got around to actually sit down at the keyboard and write.
And because I know that you guys like my wrap-up posts, here’s another round up on what else happened in May:
1. I made a pretty cake and chocolate ornaments (at culinary school):
2. I missed out on seeing Bruce Springsteen again. Couldn’t get a ticket to his sold-out show and despite me knowing that it was sold-out for the last six months, I was still pretty buggered came the day of the gig. (And now I have even more reasons to be buggered: He played 30-odd songs that night, a total of 3 hours and 21 minutes and eight encores. And I missed it. BUGGER!)
3. Luigi and I did some serious house cleaning.
When we cleared out a wardrobe full of documents, we found this amazing card you can see in the top left corner. It was made by my fellow students back when I studied in New Zealand and I had totally forgotten about it. So when I held it in my hands the other day, it brought back the loveliest memories and tears to my eyes.
4. I celebrated “another year of Sabrina” with family and friends and had a lovely coffee table set up to showcase the collection of confections I’ve made for this occassion:
Plenty of other things have happened in May, as you can see in the image at the very top (in no particular order):
I got a haircut and bought new clothes to match the new colour, I taught myself how to make lemon curd (and lemon curd strawberry tartelettes), I watched ‘Pirates of the Carribean 1-3’ once again, I found lovely miniature cakes called Gugl in the mail, I attempted to make Hummingbird Bakery-style cookies, I started a new amigurumi project, I created a new version of a coconut layer cake for my birthday, I ate a fabulous ice cream cake with strawberries at a nice restaurant, I got lost on a mini-road trip….
And what have you been up to?
