Nigella eat your heart out

My last post was a little deep, you feel? So I'm gonna keep it easy, breezy, beautiful cover girl.

Had a few hours up my black cardigan-ed sleeve this afternoon, so I got busy and got things done.

The weather is starting to get cooler, but when the sun is out it's delightful. Not too hot, not too cold. Perfect. So I came home, put on my bball shorts and a singlet and opened all the windows and doors and put on about a million loads of washing.

I have an obsession for linen spray right now (I saw a friend use it, and it reminded me that the last time I used it was pre-Japan) since I've been sick, it's nice to hop into bed and it smells like clean linen. I used to make my own with eucalyptus oil and water, but it's a little strong. So anyway I randomly found some at Muji (while shopping for curry & pretzel snacks) and boom whaddaya know...I'm obsessed.

So I changed all the linen on my bed, put blankets, duvets & pillows (ok so for a small Japanese bed I have A LOT of stuff on it!) outside in the sun to air (of course with a good spraying of my new linen spray), did 3 loads of washing - although I feel like I did like 10 on the weekend?! Did the dishes, vacuumed and mopped the floors, dinner is pretty much ready to throw together when I get home later from the gym tonight, I mended the wires from two bras (Japanese washing machines kill bras!) and now I think I feel like baking a cake.

I feel like such a domestic goddess right now, I just need to go and pick up with kids from where ever they would be if I had any, um let's say rugby (or basketball) practice and ballet? and NO I would not be driving a people mover or a mini van. And wait for my husband (again if I had one!) to come home so I could put dinner on the table. uuummm yeah ok....moving on!

Fresh fruit in Japan is crazy expensive so I found these bags of frozen mango bits and now it's safe to say I'm addicted! So now all my work is done, I'm chilling on the couch with some mango watching one of my new shows Nothing Trivial (an NZ show), waiting for my other shows to download (Happy Endings, New Girl, Glee, Modern Family, Community, The Big Bang Theory & Desperate Housewives) while surfing the interwebs (!) for new blogs to read, making a new running playlist and trying not to drink too much coke before I head to the gym!

Sugar, spice and all things nice.
