If “failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor” (Truman Capote), how spicy do you like your success stories?
If that’s the case then I must be the eggs that keep scrambling when they get added to the waffle batter.
Happy 4th of July if you live in the US. Tell us your 10 favourite things about summer.
Happy 4th of July… I guess.
As somebody who doesn’t live in America, or celebrate American holidays, the 4th is lost on me. Here in Australia, it was just another day. Friday, to be exact. A day of nothing. A usual day at the office. Another day in my mundane life.
And as it’s also winter here, maybe I should change it and tell you my favourite 10 things about winter?? Hmm this could be difficult…
1. Feeling nice and toasty warm
2. Flannelette sheets!
3. HOT SHOWERS!
4. Layers of clothes
6. Seat warmers
7. Hot, freshly made soup and crusty bread smothered in butter
8. Hot puddings
9. Giant cups of hot milo / chai lattes / flavoured teas
10. Curling up on the couch in pj’s, thick socks and a blanket.

I’ve just caught the tram to work, it’s 8:20am and I just happened to glance up and there she was, Crazy Cat Lady staring back at me from further down the tram!
She’s probably thinking about how cold it currently is, and wishing that the tram wasn’t packed in like sardines. She’s probably seen me and thought ‘OH MY GOD… ITS MY BEAT GIRLFRIEND, shhh don’t tell Yvonne. Ohh I don’t want to go to work today. I hope Nan Nan isn’t there. I’m so tired. I just want to be at home. I can’t wait to spend the day looking at things on Pinterest. Correction, I can’t wait to look at all of the cat-things on Pinterest. Hang on, today’s Friday… That means it’s BURRITO FRIDAY!!
HOWEVER, after getting off the tram and waiting at the base of the stairwell to greet Crazy Cat Lady, only to have her walk past and completely ignore me, and then high-tail it down the street to the office.
Totally not what I had anticipated.
