Yes, I know. I've been very slack...I haven't posted since whenever it was. I have been busy though. The wedding is only a week away and so things are hotting up in that area (oops, Freudian slip there...heheh).
With respect to the Moreton Bay bugs...someone asked what we ate them with. Ok...you cook them the way you'd cook crayfish, lobsters or crabs...in a large pot of boiling water. You then crack the shell and pick the sweet flesh out and make a total pig of yourself...the best way to go. Or, you could be terribly couth and spread the meat on a bed of lettuce, artistically arrange other seafoods like prawns, oysters, sushi, etc around, garnish with wasabi sauce, lemon or whatever and people help themselves, using the appropriate utensils rather than fingers. Frankly, I prefer the first way...but, there you go. One of our doctors likes to eat the meat with soy mixed with some wasabi. I prefer it with a little Thousand Island Dressing or roasted garlic sauce, it depends on your tastes. Enjoy...those of you who live outside of Australia, try this delicacy when you come here...if you like lobsters, you'll like bugs.

Now, as I said, I have been busy. First of all, there's the small chore of earning money to live on...that keeps me out of mischief for part of the time. But this week, I've been involved with finding an outfit for my daughter's wedding on the 29th, which is tomorrow week.
Yesterday, Thursday, I felt like I'd travelled the length and breadth of South East Queensland looking for something to wear. I stipulated what I was looking for, mentioned that it was an informal garden wedding and that I wanted something summery. I got shown black, navy and brown outfits, I got shown cream and white outfits, very formal outfits and totally unsuitable outfits. Imagine 60+, more than slightly overweight in pleats and clingy tops...ugh, not a good look!
So, out I went again today as I also had to do my weekly shop as well. The fridge and pantry were looking decidedly spare. It's amazing what 24 hours does. In the first half hour, I found my outfit. No, I'm not going to tell you what it is, you can wait and see the photos.
However, I was so excited about finding something, I was halfway home when I realised I'd left my shopping at Woolie's parcel pick up, so had to turn around and get them. I was on such a high though, that it didn't faze me at all. Normally, I'd have been totally pinged off about that.
So, that's what's been happening. We had a wedding crisis last week, but that resolved itself...and the wedding is still on. To be quite honest, I'll be glad when it's all over and life gets back to normal. Well, for a little while, anyway. As I have mentioned before, there's never a dull moment around this place...but we welcome them when they do happen.
Enjoy your weekend.
