"Don't Dispose of That Handy Shower Cap!"

Generally today has been pretty average. I have mainly been suprised at how sunny it is, how mild the weather has become, and how I managed to apply make up on the number 52 using my ipod as a mirror. Not too bad.
Thoughts today include more concern over the worldwide diary. Having trouble with my creativity - need to find some inspiration! So far this week has not been totally inspiring - but I am looking forward to a weekend of inspiration in the form of dancing and eating barbeque in Brick Lane. Thoughts for the journal so far come down to whatever gets written in it - but really I think deep down I would prefer recipes/ideas - perhaps a bit like that part in Take A Break magazine where people send in tips like
"Do Not Dispose Of That Shower Cap - Turn It Into a Handy Flower Pot!"
would be how it turned out.
Now the hunt for the diary begins...

1000 Journals Project

I have recently been thinking about the 1000 Journals Project ( and decided I was going to get my hands on one.
Apparently, its more likely that you will win the lottery before you get your grubby mits on one of the journals.
So perhaps, I am thinking, I should create my own one to send around the world...
Specifically for recipes? Or interior design ideas?? (LA!) Or maybe just something silly.
Who can say?

No Dough?

Last night I ventured to my local pizza express for tasty dinner...
However, I was thwarted in my efforts to eat, as they had NO DOUGH!
When they finally located some dough and presented my food, it was too late and I had passed by my hunger. The Manager was also very rude and the place was dirty.
I am launching a boycott - even if they are doing 2 for 1.

Goodbye to Jo, and snow...

Today is the first blog.

This week I have so far been missing two things:

Where is my pal and my snow? Thailand and probably Ireland by now.
