The weather is rotten. When people think of Australia they think of sun and beaches. Well, not in Melbourne. If you want that then don’t bother coming here. It’s been raining since last night. I woke up and it was still going. It’s quite nice though. Reminds me of October-ish in Canada. Just before it gets super cold and snows. Actually makes me home sick.
Yesterday a couple new things happened. For starters, judging by my last post I was having a rough morning. Right after I posted that the mail man appeared with a little package addressed to Brendan. I’m expecting a couple things (ETA today) but it wasn’t for me. Or was it??
Brendan came out with something hidden behind his back. I knew there was a gift that didn’t arrive in time for Xmas so I’m guessing this was it. And boy, did it brighten my day! And my afternoon. Night. This morning! RIGHT NOW!! I’m so in love with this little guy!
This is Hank.
And after I bought him I may have went online and bought 4 more. I’m embarrassed to say how much I have spent on stuffed toys. Let’s just say… I’m happy for buy now pay later apps. I’m almost done paying Christmas off so I guess it’s okay.
I have been following Fugglers for years and have always wanted one. Unfortunately they weren’t available over here and this was before the time I had money and also bought everything online. Those days are long gone and here I am now.
So yeah, Hank has come into my life and couldn’t have come at a better time. I love him either way and can’t wait to get more.
Another cool thing, Brendan got me a soup and smoothie maker for Christmas. I’ve never even thought of one of these things. Actually, I didn’t even know it existed. But it does and I own it. So last night I thought I’d put it into use and see what it can do. And honestly I was really surprised.
I just threw everything into this machine! Onions, mushroom, garlic. Threw in some milk and broth. Ended up with a chicken and mushroom soup in 30 minutes! This thing did EVERYTHING!! I have a new motto for this month:
If it’s not made in the machine it’s not going in me.
Look, it doesn’t rhyme but it’s my thing at the moment. It’s so damn cool that this morning I used it AGAIN and made smoothies. It came out awesome!
So I’m now an advocate of this thing. I think everyone needs one. I understand not everyone wants one and to those people who don’t like soup… I don’t get you. That’s like saying you don’t like drinking. It’s liquid! Do you like water? Juice? Coffee? Coke? Slushies? I mean… just like drinks. You can get a variety of soup. There’s just no reason to not like it….. The cup is your bowl.
