In this moment

Hello! Sorry for the hiatus. I've been away in Singapore visiting my mum and dad with Stu and Alexander. I'd honestly thought I would do some blogging from there but simply ran out of time. We are home now and settling back into everyday life. Here are a few things that are happening in this moment.
a bit of creative flower play
reading... The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort. What a crazy sex driven and drug fuelled life! And so strangely compelling and captivating. I'm loving the book as much as I loved the movie - which was A LOT.

excited about... watching Giselle by the Australian Ballet this Saturday. Look forward to seeing the costumes, and getting lost in the magic of it all.

planning... not to travel for a little while. Holidaying with a toddler is hard work.     

watching... My Kitchen Rules online. So many episodes to catch up on! 

wishing... for a new Jaguar XE. Have you seen their Sports model? So sleek and so modern and oh so powerful. Adding it to my luxury wishlist.

celebrating... Stu's birthday. My love is on the wrong side of forty.

cooking... steak and chips for dinner tonight. A nice change from the last two week's all Asian menu.

feeling... pretty glad to be back home. While we had a great time in Singapore, it's nice to come home to a familiar routine.

loving... the weather. The mornings and nights are cool but the brilliantly warm sunny afternoons makes my heart sing. Definitely one of the best things about Autumn.


collecting...crystals and minerals. My mum gave me her small collection to get me started. Will share soon.

Welcome back, Trishie. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time with the family.

The Wolf of Wall Street is on my list of must-watch movies! Great to know that it's captivating. ^.^

So many exciting things Trishie, I hope you share more about your holiday and these crystals and minerals sound awesome! It's so funny but you're my go to lady for reality tv show reminding (what would I do without you!). Holidays are fun and a nice reminder of how nice our "normal" lives are as well :) Welcome back!

Glad you had fun in Singapore and also happy to have you back! & I know what you mean -- I love to travel but there's simply no place like home :)

Hi! I am LiLi! said...

Welcome back, Trishie. Good thing I follow you on Instagram. It didn't feel like it was a very long time since I haven't felt your online presence. :D

Good to see you back. What lovely flowers :-)

Oh wow that Jag looks good :-D

Seems like a fun and busy life. The Wolf of Wall Street is such a wild life isn't it? I hope you will enjoy all the celebration of Stu's birthday and your time at home. Staying home is one of the best! There is no place like home.

Must be a great holiday in Singapore. It is tiring travelling with a young and active toddler. I prefer stay at home.

Anouk said...

So nice that you got to travel to Singapore. I understand that when you are with family and enjoying yourself, blogging should not be a priority. But great to have you back!

Flower Power!

Those flowers are beautiful! I can image travelling with a toddler - especially via air - would be quite exhausting!
Steak and chips for dinner sounds just right to me tonight :-)

I love your post, I am happy that you did a lot of things. Sometimes is good to being away from the blog and come full of live. Although I think that you always are full of life. xoxo

So glad you had a wonderful visit with your family! I remember when my sons were young. It is indeed hard to travel (and truly relax) with a toddler in tow. Have fun at the ballet! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

I always really like it when I take a break from my computer. It sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family and have a lot of great things going on to keep you busy and happy. My mom has a huge rock collection that she has really enjoyed. Enjoy the ballet tomorrow!

Azura Chan said...

It's good to be back. So you have found new hobby during your visit to your hometown? Nice!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

How fun that you are going to see "Giselle"! Such a beautiful ballet :)

Beauty Box said...

I second that - it's tiring travelling with a toddler. I had to chuckle at your steak and chips - the hubs feels overwhelmed by Chinese/Singaporean food after two weeks too and we eat non-Asian nosh for a while - e.g. tacos, pork roast etc when we get back to Tokyo.

I would disagree and say the 'right' side of 40. I love been over 40!

Jane said...

oh the excess and overdrive of wolf of wall street was so much to take in! i only saw the movie and i was thinking the whole time.. really? this can't be real..! i come from the nonprofit field where we had to stretch every dollar lol so it was definitely so different! glad you had a good time in singapore!

Glad you had a good trip! Hehe, I like your comment about vacationing with a toddler being hard work :) I'm about to take my first trip with Berkeley to visit my parents in Floriday. It will hopefully not be too bad since we'll be based out of their house.
