Quality catchups with Nick earlier this week, and yesterday I had a long (always) overdue catch up with Kristi and Zlatan. Kristi’s just graduated from her Art Therapy course so we celebrated with Nash Burgers and I also bought her a plant as a graduation present from Alex at More Plants!

Elf & Taco at The Cannery

Elf-&-Taco
Late lunch with Hawko at The Cannery.

messina
Mango Sorbet and Coconut and Lychee Gelato. SO happy to have a Messina within walking distance!

Hawko and I had a late lunch on Sunday. Everything was pretty much shut at The Cannery except for Elf & Taco. The first question I asked the guy at the counter was “are the Taco’s spicy hot?”, he replied that he could make them spicy or not, so I ordered a couple. Turns out the non-spicy tacos they serve are still pretty spicy and had me sweating (I’m allergic to chilli and sweat profusely when I eat it!).

The guy who served me was SUPER sorry. He offered to make me a burrito for free (I had already finished my meal at this point). I let him know that it was totally AOK, but he insisted on giving me a free food voucher for my next visit. Very nice of him!

I’ve been gaming with Hawk for 5 years now, and today we finally met IRL for the 1st time. I picked him up from the airport earlier this morning. WTF have they done with the airport?! It’s a mess (went around the block 3 times to figure out how to pull over to pick him up (and I was charged for it too!). Hawk and I then met Gina at Maroubra for breakfast at Grumpy Baker. Hawk then helped me to load up the Jazz with as much leftover stuff as possible (my bicycles mainly) and we then had a fun big day out in the CBD (not hung out in there in ages, loved it!).

Hawk’s staying with me over the weekend. Will post more updates tomorrow!

More Plants

moreplants1
Such a cute little shop!

moreplants2
I’m obsessed with these huge leaves. SO much want, but not pet safe and I’d hate to kill it, so maybe later.

moreplants3
My 1st plant.

plantsviv
Viv bought a plant too!

I’ve managed to kill every single plant I’ve ever bought or had gifted to me, everything from easy to grow bamboo to a Bonsai tree (yes I felt really bad about killing the Bonsai!). It’s obvious that I don’t have a green thumb, and thus I’ve not bought a plant in years… until yesterday!

japanese
Lunch at my local cafe Ipukku.

Initially I was looking at getting some very expensive (hundreds of dollars) detailed artificial plants for my new apartment as they’d be safe for Mia (my cat), then I looked at pet safe plants, then I looked at amazing plant systems to keep plants out of Mia’s reach, then I went down the rabbit hole of indoor plant YouTube videos. People are obsessed and it’s rubbing off on me!

I’ve never been a fan of huge nurseries. Whilst they’re massive, they also feel so daggy, dated and old school, much like the Harvey Norman of plant stores. Good thing then that I found a local plant shop in Rosebery called “More Plants”. Viv and I dropped in yesterday and the owner of this amazingly cute little shop was SO helpful, energetic and inspiring. She helped me to pick out a pet safe plant, gave me plenty of tips (and even offered to repot it for me if I came back in another time).

The plant I got is a Calathea Musaica. I’ve yet to name it!
