Random things which have increased my happiness recently.
This spectacular sunrise a few days ago.

Having fun with Instagram.

The fragrance of these vanilla butter cream candles.

Attending Oz Comic Con with C and E yesterday. Despite negative media reports about the event on Saturday, we had a great time. The highlight for me was the question and answer session with Mitch Pileggi ('The X-Files") and getting his autograph. The girls were pretty pleased about meeting Jason Momoa ("Stargate Atlantis", "Game of Thrones"). Fun day.

These flowers from C brightening up the room.

This wonderful book.

These brilliant movies. (Which I am up to in my rewatch and which have titles that are strangely appropriate to this post.)

This cats contentment.

Apricots and yoghurt for lunch today.

Far be it for me to disregard the words of wisdom on this month's calendar page. Eating cake sounded like a great plan for a miserable winter's day.

The first of the new crop of lemons on our little tree.

My family will probably collectively pass out with astonishment when they see this. It's been a long time between cakes around here.
Of course, I've already sampled it. Not bad at all.

Remember when Mitch winked at you?

A thought just occurred to me, M. And this is not necessarily for posting, but have you considered becoming an iStockphoto contributor? I use them for work stuff. I'm sure people would pay for your pics. I know I would, but fortunately I don't have to because I'm marrying into the fam. Haha. N.

You're too kind, N! Have always considered my photographic ability to be fairly amateurish. I'm very lucky to have such a good camera!
