Museum Date Day

Date days are wonderful, warm and fuzzy days :) My lovely boy and I shared one just last week.

It all started with some delicious French toast cooked by Mr. Boyfriend after a lazy sleep-in. Strawberries, banana, honey and creamy vanilla yoghurt were added for yumminess. I'd never had French toast before. Consider me converted!

And then we ventured out and explored the Melbourne Museum*.

Despite my thesis being focused on museum learning, it seems to have escaped into realm of Missing Socks and was able to enjoy the day without thinking of too much theory. We had good fun giggling about while playing with the exhibits. The history of human dissection was equally gross and interesting!

Then it was time to head back home and relax with some left overs, tv shows and movies. Beautiful :)

*For $10 Adult entry and free student/concession entry, it's well worth an exploration!
Check out the Melbourne Museum here. And end spruik.

Sherlock Love

The Boy and I celebrated Valentines a week ago, you know, beat the busybusiness of February 14. By luck, we were able to 'recreate' our very first date. It seems Sherlock Holmes likes to pop up regularly in our relationship :)

We had dinner at the restaurant where I famously spat gelati upon him (whilst giggling at his jokes, so it's a compliment really...) on our first date. I obviously made a good impression that night though, since he makes me ice cream often enough! After wallowing in that trough, mind, a little more dainty than the first time, we went off to see Sherlock Holmes. Yep, I'm all mature and a proper lady now!

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows

I enjoyed the visual feast of the short-lived gypsy set and costumes. I loved Stephen Fry as Mylcroft. Yawned a bit in the slow-mo-running-through-the-woods-getting-shot-at scene. And wondered when Rachel McAdams would be coming back with some awesome outfits and hats that I so loved from the first film. They can't have killed her off, surely? Most of the time though we were waiting for the awesomeness of BBC Sherlock to emerge.

Nothing beats the BBC it seems. <3 BBC Sherlock

Love will keep us together

Happy Valentines Day!
What do you have planned for today? We had our Valentines celebrations last week, so we're just going to whip up some yummy pancakes for breakfast today.

And maybe play a little bit of Harry Potter Lego on the PS3. Yeah, I'm a gamer girl *cough splatter cough die*

The Boy loves pancakes with choc chips in the middle. Is it just me, or is that weird and gross? I love choc chips, but put them in cookies or something sensible please! :P

I hope you all have wonderful days today :) Sending love and roses your way!

Rosetta Rose

Please welcome Rosetta Rose to my wardrobe!

I've spied this fun fabric on skirts in Dangerfield for a long time. I swore as soon as I saw it in dress form, it'd be coming home with me.

Of course, when it did turn up in dress form, I a couple of coins to my name and that was all. I admit, it was bit of a painful wait until pay day.

But the wait was worth it! Down from $88 to $60 on the price tag.
Take it to the register and BOOM! $48!
That's the way we like it!

By the way, totally worth checking out some of the bargain dresses on sale at Dangerfield at the moment ;) I know I'll be checking back there soon!

I'm not a cricket fan by any means. Well, that's partially a lie. I like the noise of the commentary in the background on a hot summer day as I read a book on the couch. Usually that's the extent of my relationship with cricket.

Yesterday, I overdosed. T20 at the good ol' MCG.

Fireworks and fireballs were promised, plus segway cameramen. I was in.

Can you spy the segway cameraman?*

See, the Boyfriend is somewhat of a cricket nut. He's like an addicted encyclopedia with sports. It's quite impressive! Anyway, we trotted off with his father to watch the cricket. I realised early on that I wasn't going to 'get' a lot of the stuff happening (much of this may be the result of learning that the ball for this game was white - not red - towards the end of the match). I had a wonderful time regardless :)

Yeah, Brett Lee!*

I watched the crowds, the SkyCam, the fielders moving about, security, the dimwits in the crowd being escorted out, the birds swarming up above, the drunk man run onto the ground and be taken away by the police, the fireballs and the blow-up balls bouncing about. And a little bit of cricket. So much more goes on than what's put on tv!

And then it was all over. India won. And back home, through the huge crowds, we went.

*Apologies for the irritable quality of pictures. They were taken with my phone's camera.

Milkwood Masters

If you live anywhere near Melbourne, you must go to Milkwood.

Milkwood is a wonderful little cafe in Brunswick. Absolutely delicious organic foods! I'm a little obsessed with the ricotta pancakes with honey yoghurt, banana and toasted shredded coconut.

Yep, I'm dribbling right now.

Yummiest coffee I have ever had. And some heavy reading... my Masters. Time to read it all the way through. It's a little mind boggling. Thank god for Milkwood
