Great moments of my weekend

Having a few good chuckles watching Goodbye Lenin on Friday night.

Yummy meals: Thai on Friday night, pub on Saturday night, getting served breakfast in bed on Sunday morning, and a thoroughly delicious meal in Bendigo that made up for driving all that way in the wind and rain.

Trying out my new dressing gown for the first time, and discovering how lush and luxurious it is.

Watching Marita laughing herself silly over the remark in the service station.

While watching Seven Wonders of the Industrial World, showing the Bell Rock lighthouse construction in 1807, Isaac piping up “Hey, how did they get this film in colour?”

Wondering why the pancake mixture for Monday lunch was getting so sticky, then realising the eggs should have been beaten separately to the flour, before being added, that yes, I can screw-up such a simple recipe, and that thank goodness I had more eggs.

Looking at Monday’s footy result, being disappointed that Melbourne won, then realising I did tip them after all. I do believe it’s 6 out of 8 this round, can’t complain.

I saw Goodbye Lenin at the movies and had trouble staying awake through it. I thought the hype did not live up to the reality. Still we all have different tastes, that’s what makes life interesting.

What sort of pancakes. The best are the ricotta hot cakes by Bill Grainger. I think I would crawl to Sydney to eat them. You can download the recipe from the Lifestyle Channel website.
