the revisit

Just wanted to let the whole world know that I am currently having a super wild Saturday night at home. It has been incredibly windy in Melbourne today so my family got extra lazy and we decided to stay in for once and deplete our supply of the yummy caramel mudcake I baked the other night (it tasted way better than the store ones and I’m not at all trying to be bias here).

As soon as my little one started to nap, I made myself a nice cup of tea, put on some stripy long socks (pretty sure I bought these when I was 16) and spent half an hour mindlessly colouring in. It felt blissful staying at home for once on a Saturday night and revisiting old hobbies such as colouring in, reading books, bullet journaling and of course blogging.

I finished reading The Namesake last month and absolutely loved it. The film adaption was alright, although I probably wouldn’t watch it a second time.

I’m now reading The Pearl That Broke Its Shell and honestly finding it a very slow read so far. It seems like a promising read but I find the book and font size a tad too small for my liking so I can’t really concentrate on the story for too long.

Normally I aim to read a new book each month but this year I have had a slow start. That being said, I’m aiming to read at least 12 books this year but hopefully more once I return to work later this year (commuting to and from work is the most ideal time for me to read).

Today’s little self care session reminded me how important it is to sometimes have a cozy night in and spend some time mindlessly colouring in and reading with a hot cup of tea!

    1. Haha it’s a pretty simple recipe written on the back of a cake mix from woolies 😂 I’ll send you a pic of the box if you’re interested.

      Also welcome back to blogging. I remember following you ages ago and then wondered where you disappeared. How is married life?
