Yet strangely, Nirvana songs were not going through my head as we pasteurised and heated and sliced and scooped and drained today on my cheese making course.
It was heaps of fun, quite relaxing and I made fetta!
Our little trip to Melbourne was, as expected, four days of fantastic fun. I spent time with friends, including our Thornberry (who not only invited me over to her house, but made me coffee, fed me lunch and then showed me her truly amazing sewing room with views of the city. Thanks again Lara!). Sadly Christina got super busy moving house so we couldn't meet, but I still managed to do fabric shopping for Australia, as well as visit Meet Me At Mikes and the Rose St Artist Markets.
The most insane thing that happened to me was that I was asked five times on Monday for directions, like I was a local. I'm not too sure what part of me wasn't screaming out "Hello! I'm from Canberra via North Queensland!" but there you go. Just as odd was the fact that I could actually tell these people which tram stop to get off and which direction Johnston St was.
Since we returned to Canberra I've been laying low. I've had some big decisions to make concerning my work but that's not for the blog. I've also been having fun tackling this beanie.

Notes: Which parent gave me this huge noggin? Sadly, this hat is too tight, but I will make another with a bigger hook and see how that goes.
