Happy Chinese Australian New Day

Chinese New Year and Australia Day completely passed me by this year. Instead, we surrounded ourselves with cheese, mountains and snow in France. The most Chinese thing I did was make everyone take their shoes off when they came in to the apartment.

I hardly tweeted or updated FB at all whilst away. The more fun I’m having, the less likely I am to post about it. My online life looks quite dull, even though I’m doing lots.

Stupid gloves beat my smartphone

The colder it gets, I’m also less likely to be updating anything. Several months in to London winter, I still keep stabbing at my phone with my useless gloved fingers.

Useful : MUJI sell touchscreen conductive gloves. I have tried several times to buy these, but the staff tell me there is a waiting list!?

Useless : I found a fingerless gloves website that includes terrible ‘fingerless fiction’. Since it’s 2012, why not read their Olympic Gold story?

Charming : Pictures of lonely gloves at our park.

Happy Australia Day

As I missed celebrating Australia Day, here are some Oz-themed pictures…

Bruce street

A sensible Australian street name. I love the way it's written in the footpath concrete..

Amusing sun hats. This was one of my favourites.

My friend recently made me a pizza. OMG - it's in the shape of Australia!

Some of my vintage 1970s Australian stickers.

I took all that lightly charred meat for granted ...

  4. I can vouch for the Muji gloves – I have a pair and they are happily keeping me connected in sub zero temps!
