A Dose of Oestrogen

26 Feb

All of us women need that extra bit of oestrogen once in a while. Here’s an account of my most excellent pajama party with friends Anjuli and Shuli. Comfort food had to feature, of course!

1 – Dressed up (for ourselves) in our best outfits, we headed for a scrumptious meal of Honey BBQ chicken, Spicy Arabiata and a juicy Burger. Then off to the Pub for a drink. By this time I was so full, I was bursting through my clinched vintage dress. Huff. Puff.

2 – There I discovered  Double Archers and Coke  with a wedge of lime-  its my new favourite drink. Yum!


3 – A bit buzzed and very happy, we left the Pub and bought ourselves some fatty, junkie grub for the sleep over. Which reminds me, do try the Doritos Lime Flavour. Its quite awesome. You don’t even need the salsa dip.

4 – After we’d changed into our comfi pajamas that Anjuli surprised us with a box of cookies she bought us in Copenhagen. There was oatmeal and raisin, Chocolate chip, Butter, Sugared Vanilla and Plain. Bloody brilliant.

Cookies from Copenhagen!


As you can see, it came in a very pretty pastel blue box that reminded me instantly of this scene in Marie Antoinette:


5- We watched Disney Movies and sang along till the wee hours of the night (morning). And the next day, it only got better.

We made a trip down to the swimming pool where I learnt to dive and do somersaults in the water! We ended the morning with a large lazy breakfast of mushroom and cheese buns, almond croissants, coffee,  juice and fresh gossip. Crunchy 🙂

I had such an awesome time, I can’t wait to get my next dose of oestrogen! Read more about it on Shuli’s blog http://thingsididmyself.blogspot.com/2011/02/pyjama-party-outfit-9-and-barely-10.html



Miffed making Muffins

24 May

I was so upset last evening, I baked a batch of 36 muffins in one go.

I added some chocolate chips to the dough and some sprinkles on the top. Did everyone else enjoy them? Yes. Did my mood improve because of it? No.

Baking as a therapy usually works. I don’t know why it didn’t yesterday.
