2012

So it's time for the obligatory New Year's Eve post and a wrap up of 2012... It's been quite the year!

The Mr and I saw in the new year last year with our good friends in Brisbane - this year we are staying in and I will be lucky if I can stay awake til midnight! :)

2012 saw us holidaying in Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and going home to Brisbane.  On the career front, I was lucky enough to head back to Tokyo and Hong Kong and be involved in lots of challenging work and survive what has been a very tumultuous year for the financial services industry.  We saw friends get engaged, married, move cities.  We welcomed lots of new bambinos into our circle of friends.  It was also the year that the most gorgeous little nephew and the most incredible little girl was born.

I will leave you and 2012 with this pretty little tune from the Paper Kites (thanks to Hieu for the music discovery).  I hope 2013 is good and kind to you all xx

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...


Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
