29th Oct

 My boyfriend took me to Hippo Creek - Subiaco for dinner.
Hippo Creek is famous for it's 1kg steak! It was quite hard getting a booking but we got a 
reservation at 8:45pm, pretty late for dinner huh?

Sorry if the photos are not clear it was taken with camera fone.

NJ ordered the "500g rump steak(rare) with chips, I ordered the "Lion Kill" which was 300g sirlion steak(med well) with ribs & mash

NJ's steak it was a very thick and juicy steak - do you see the juice: aka blood.
The food was so good, we managed to finish our food and left feeling full and satisfied.
Thumbs Up for Hippo Creek!!!

Mango Season & Miffy .

This is what I look at when I come home from work…AWWwww
OMG Miffy is so cute sometimes ..when he's not chewing every cable in the house.

Today I went to local Fruit & Veggie shop and they were selling mangoes for $2 a kg!
Yes, you heard right $2 dollars a kg was so cheap I had to buy some and also picked up a punnet of strawberries too they were 99c, they looked so re and sweet but they were a little sour for me.

Knitting Again

I started knitting again but this time I'm extra careful not to drop a stitch
but I only know how to purl stitch.
The last scarf took me almost a year to do so lets see how long this will take.

Mini Apple Heart Attack !

Today I had a mini heart attack
I had accidentally slide my SD card into my CD drive in my imac.
I thought I could get it out but the more I tried the more i pushed it in and eventually I failed and it went beyond reachable.
But we found a way to get it out with out hauling my imac to the apple store
(how embarrassing the would be.)
We tipped the imac on the side and bent a bobby pin open and slowly hooked the SD card out.
We used the bobby pin because of the soft rubber tip to prevent scratching the inside of the drive. I read on apple forums that you can use a paperclip as well.

The day started out nice and sunny but by late arvo it was sprinkling down and a rainbow appeared.
