I get love letters from the Universe.

I dreamed of us again last night, Julia.

You were wearing your rabbit PJ’s again.

And we were wondering about the consequences of a role reversal. You know, me as you and you as me, for a day or so.

But you were right. I keep forgetting to hop… and you keep forgetting that the entire world is spinning in the palm of your hand.

Hop, hop –
The Universe

Julia, you could’ve told me you left chocolate in the pockets.

These lovely notes make me smile every day when they pop into my Inbox. Sign up for your own notes from the Universe here.

This is NOT what the Cyclamen on my kitchen window sill looks like, not at all.

One of my favourite places to visit on the web and apparently an 'Australian website you should get to know'!

I’ve written about Pia’s website before – her blog is one of my favourite places to visit online. So I was delighted to see her blog featured on a list of ‘Australian Sites you should get to know‘, along with a number of other inspirational, creative websites.

Wobbly bits, stretch marks, and thighs in USA Glamour Mag. Cool!

Wow! How beautiful to see a real body in a mainstream fashion and beauty mag. This image of Lizze Miller was published in the August 2009 edition of Glamour Magazine (USA). I don’t know who Lizzie is, but I’m sure glad to see her wobbly bits! I’ll see your roll Lizzie and raise you one (or two)!

I googled a bit to find out more about Lizzie and the image and apparently she’s a ‘plus-size’ model. THIS is plus-size??!! OMG.

I want to look as good as this gorgeous woman when I am her age…
I love the hair, the style, the apron (! I have a collection of gorgeous aprons I’ll show you one day !), and the colour surrounding her.
I imagine she’s a designer of some description. Lovely!

Image found on Katie’s amazingly inspirational blog ‘Color Me Katie‘ – somewhere to go if you’re looking to brighten up your day!


She doesn’t contribute much to the workload, but meh, she’s pretty to look at. Lucy likes to sleep on the printer – in-convenient and messy.

This is for Persephone over at ‘What Possessed Me’ – one of my top 2 favourite blogs! She’s had to deal with some over-zealous prude(s) flagging her blog as containing ‘objectionable content’ – reed-ic-oooolos!! She’s got an awesome blog and she’s a brilliant and witty writer.

P.S. My other top favourite blog is of course Pia’s ‘Enhance the Everyday’ – endless inspiration!
