A couple of weekends ago John & Karen took us glamping. These guys are professionals, and they ensured that the experience was 100% more positive than our last tent based adventure. We stayed at Honeymoon Pool, near Collie, which was... Continue reading

Conor and I spent last night at the Loose Box in Mundaring. Eight course degustation with wine + rolling into a cottage next door afterwards + homemade (gf) brioche for breakfast = Happy Hannah*. * Conor was quite happy too. Continue reading

Whilst in Exmouth we swam with an eight metre female whale shark. We had a quick briefing beforehand, with rule number one being: Nobody is to attempt to ride a whale shark. Not that disappointing for me; I was far... Continue reading

I can't recommend Yoke highly enough, especially if you are new-ish to baking sourdough bread. Do let me know if you do one - I'd love to know what you think. H

I spent yesterday in the capable hands of Yoke Mardewi, making sourdough pastries. It was an amazing class, partly because I learnt so many new skills that it would be really hard to teach yourself at home. We made croissants,... Continue reading

Yesterday I made bagels. It's just a shame that Dan wasn't here to give them his seal of approval. I used Nigella's recipe, from How to be a Domestic Goddess. Here is my (slightly adapted) version: Makes 15 bagels 1kg... Continue reading

We spent tonight at Cottlesloe beach, with a cracking sunset, cold beer, questionable scluptures and persistent seagulls. It was pretty idyllic. Continue reading

Yesterday I tried Orgran's alternative grain bread mix, with pretty pleasing results. It was ridiculously easy, and so nice to be able to eat bread hot from the oven. The standard loaf is pretty boring, so next time I'd add... Continue reading

On Friday night we saw a Trust, a modern dance interpretation of the Global Financial Crisis, in German. And yes, it was every bit as dreadful as it sounds. Luckily the weekend improved dramatically after that. Firstly, it turns out... Continue reading

Row, I'm going to warn you now. In about a week there will be photos of sharks on my blog. In the background, you'll be able to make out me, sobbing and clinging to the edge of the tank, begging to be pulled out. It's going to be so fun!

Summer in Perth is pretty idyllic. Last night was spent curled up on a beanbag eating sausage sandwiches at the King's Park outdoor cinema. Today I got up at dawn and made a lot of cakes. Coconut meringue cake Pistachio... Continue reading

This week has been busy. The triathlon that I signed up to in a moment of madness is only two weeks away, so I'm running and cycling round lakes like there's no tomorrow (sort of). I turned a year older,... Continue reading

Hi Val! I've just sent you a tweet on Twitter, I think we might have talked via my work name (@Mooba)? What a small world it is. I've just ready every entry on your blog, and it's quite reassuring to know that someone else feels the same way. Where are you living at the moment? We're in West Leederville, and I work in Subiaco. x

Today is Australia Day, and apart from this, we've managed to avoid everything that you're meant to do. We even ate Cantonese BBQ for lunch. Sacrebleu! How different things are from two years ago. Continue reading

Would attempt to make his own coconut milk. But David Thompson says you must, and we all know that you don't argue with David Thompson. Conor slaving away in preparation for tonight's supper: Pork neck, snake bean & peppercorn curry Continue reading

It's a bit of a culture shock going from 30º to -2º. Central heating helps, as does mulled wine. On Saturday I went to Ottolenghi, where I've wanted to go for years. It exceeded all expectation, and as if having... Continue reading

How did six days go by so quickly? Our last day in Melbourne consisted of an acer-than-ace breakfast at Proud Mary, a walk through Fitzroy Gardens (and a glance at Australia's oldest house), shopping on Brunswick St, a drink at... Continue reading
