Prost! It’s Oktoberfest!

On Saturday a couple of weeks ago, I ventured out to my very first Oktoberfest. I’m a dedicated beer drinker and I was keen to experience more of the culture that spawned some of my favourite biers. And wowee, Brisbane Oktoberfest was an eye-opener!

Happy birthday to me

Today is my birthday. I’m 38. (Breathe, breathe, breathe). While I thought I was unaffected by such things it seems I’m not. This week I’ve been a cow to my husband because I’ve put on weight and I’m increasing in…


For something a little different, I thought I’d try making quesadillas for the kids. I recall making quesadillas once in my young and single Sydney days but haven’t since.
