About me: bits and pieces.

My parents named me Elizabeth, but haven’t called me that since I was three.
I have many nicknames. I like almost all of them.
I hated turning 28, but am not afraid of turning 29…
I live in and love my teeny one bedder.
I obsess over food and all things food related.
I read cookbooks from cover to cover.
I have a restaurant wish-list that never gets shorter.
I have a love-hate relationship with my kitchen.
I read books to escape the everyday.
I scrapbook, but without the book. So many pieces of unfiled paper.
I love the smell of thunderstorms.
I have an unnatural love of Holden SS utes.
I love my new king size doona.
I dream about the house I’ll one-day own and fill to the brim with treats and treasures.
I love my family.
I am a planner.
I love a good cry.
I think too much.
I love to travel, but am not overly adventurous.
I love when I remember my dreams.
I love my friends. Old & new.
I have four god-daughters. All very different. All wonderful.
I have little patience for Sunday drivers.
I am mesmerised by open fires.
I am a Winter baby.
I cannot keep herbs alive. Yes, even rosemary.
I love looking at photos & remembering the good times.
I like that subconsciously when I’m missing mum, I buy fresh flowers.
I would love to live in Paris.
I am somewhat of a technophobe.
I like that I can call my Dad and just chat.
I have a newfound infatuation with Campari.
I miss my family & friends living overseas.
I cringe at badly written text messages.
I like to think of myself as Generation X, not Y.
I am in denial about some things…
I am a Gemini – talkative and unpredictable
I want to one day live in the country.
I love gingham tablecloths.
I think tacos do count as dinner party food.
I love to laugh with my friends.
I make lists. All the time. Kind of like this one.
I hope to make you smile when you read my blog.

    • Thanks Gen! Back at you.
      I am very envious of your brave move out of the city. That’s what I want to do, but am yet to pluck up the courage and actually do it! But reading your blog makes me think it might not be so far off now…

  3. Lizzie, I totally agree with the Tacos.

  6. Hi Lizzy

    Thanks for your Instagram picture of your yummy dinner using my kaffir lime and chilli salt. Sorry for the late reply, I am so hopeless with technology I had to wait for my 14 year old expert had the time to show me how to comment back.

    I was wondering if you might be interested in trying my new Porcini mushroom salt, I’d love to hear your feedback on it.

    Please feel free to to call or email me and I can drop a sample off to you.

    Loving reading your blog
    Many thanks
