    Mainly quiet day today, which was good - I got a lot of work done. Melbourne has a day off for the Melbourne Cup - the race that stops the nation - this event always falls on a Tuesday and many peeps choose to make a long weekend of it. Half the office was out today, we'll be working with a skeleton crew on Monday. I like days like that.

    Tuesday small boy has requested that we make cakes, muffins and biscuits for school fete. No, they won't be paleo.

    I'm in the final stages of production of my mag - phew. Three months of reading about stillbirth and perinatal death is no one's idea of fun. The next one is on the topic of the pelvic floor. I cannot say or read the words 'pelvic floor' without clenching the said apparatus. By March, I expect my innards to be rock hard.

    B: yoghurt, apricots and coffee
    L: a pat of butter, Greek salad, glass of Cote du Rhone
    D: pork in cream with leeks, mushrooms and port; carrot and beetroot salad; roast pumpkin; glass of Merlot

    It is amazing how much work can get done when the "normal" distractions of the work environment are gone....

    There is something to be said for a stout pelvic floor......

    That dinner sound right delish.... I had yogurt today with some peach preserves I made... pretty tasty stuff...

    Depends on how sweeet the peaches are.... though you need to add some sugar for the preservative and the gelling effect, unless you are going to use a pressure cooker to process the preserves.

    I've fallen in love with this sofa on ebay. Husband is very, very far from enthusiastic

    As you can see, it will need reupholstering soon, but it's beautiful and will work very well with my inherited rugs (gold, cream and brown) as well as our old friend Chester Field. This is the second time it's been listed and I can't quite bring myself to 'lose' it again. Oh dear.

    Last time I asked him for a buy-it-now price and it was crazy expensive. When the auction ended with no bids I contacted the seller with an offer a couple of hundred less than the starting bid. He never deigned to respond. I've just messaged him offering $50 less than the starting bid, but I may cave as the auction draws to a close, if there are no bids, and just bid the starting price. I really want that sodding sofa - husband is completely bewildered by my frustrated desires to live in a house with furniture. He will never see the point until we've bought somewhere...BUT IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS. I want to live like a normal person with places to sit down, surrounded by things I like to look at.

    PS it's got a New Zealand Kauri timber frame with hand carved features.

    Very period that sofa, nice, seems like the sellers got a crushing desire not to sell it, only five years?! Go for it.
