HI LADIES...another MAGNIFICENT DAY HERE IN MELBOURNE...(BUT STILL NO RAIN!!)..
anyway....I planned today on listing LOTS of bits & pieces on ebay...went shopping for some stuff yesterday....found a few little pieces to list...
photos show THE gorgeous vintage BED DOLL..how cute is she?? PLUS the CARD roses basket..full of sewing stuff...(which I have NOT shown in this photo..BUT added to my EBAY listing)...~~
SOO the plan was to be VERY productive.....BUT HEY!! I have photographed stuff...listed one or two things...
In between getting dinner ready for Christian (at work today)..& his girlfriend who is coming for dinner..
thought I would do a roast chicken....mashed potatoes etc...cooked a chocolate cake...(okay...it is a packet one)!!
OMG...just looked at the chicken photo...& they look disgusting!!
BELIEVE ME..i have taken all the fat out of them..chopped off all the yukky bits of flesh hanging off the edges!! taken out all the inner bits & gooey pieces..YUK!! and then SCOLDED THEM IN BOILING HOT WATER!!
SO THEY are quite pristine!! clean..clear of yukky bits & bits..(if you know what I mean)??.....I am JUST SOOOOO FUSSY ...especially with CHOOKS!!
BUT the photo still makes them look so so!!!....
(just checked on them in the oven...and they are cooking up to be soo scrumptious!! very brown..well cooked...I cover them in a bit of olive oil/sea salt...soy sauce..honey...pepper...lemon juice...& stuff a lemon in the cavity.with some garlic cloves around...maybe some onion slices also here & there)...BUT MMM!! looking GOOD!!!!!!!!!)...(this is an edit...so we are now talking 6.00 pm!!)...
BUT in between all that...it is NOW nearly 3.00 pm..and I feel LIKE I have DONE NOTHING REALLY!!
I think I have listed a couple of things on ebay...BUT have heaps more to list..
PLS....the postie came with GAIL McCORMACKS....GORGEOUS GORGEOUS NEW PAINTING I purchased the other day...I havent put it anywhere yet...as I am thinking I JUST HAVE To repaint...kind of re arrange me kitchen...I have HAD IT....!!

AND he also brought me another gorgeous NEW magazine..ARTFUL BLOGGING...a MUST have reference for US bloggers..!!
soo in between listing on ebay...cooking...thinking about changing the house around..reading mags...quite literally STUFFING AROUND!! I really havent gotten too much done today....BUT I havent really been slack either....so what have I achieved??
