Rainy Sunday at Home


A busy week and waking up to rain and a dose of hayfever made me disinclined to leave the house today. The big white basket in my little front entry room is holding all of my shoes. I got it last week from crazy clarks as a cheap solution to "where to put all of my shoes now that I have decided not to keep them in my bedroom any longer".
I originally had them in my wardrobe but they kept getting mildewy and then I stored them under my bed ~ still mildewy! So I banished them into the hallway where they unsatisfactorily sat tripping all who walked past. I am sure they will still get mildewy in the basket as this house seems to be a bit damp, but at least it will be far away enough from my bedroom so as not to creep me out. Does anyone else have this problem ~ what do you do? {what I have done to keep my wardrobe damp free is a whole other post and an ongoing saga which is very mundane so I won't bore you with that now!}
Anyhow I think the new basket looks pretty! I put some vanilla pods which were starting to look suspect in the fridge in the foyer too ~ rather than throw them out. Smells good!
Madura Earl Grey tea, my Nan's favourite brand and vegetable soup with a new favourite, {which my friend got me on to} rye and caraway bread from Rock n Roll Bakery Greenslopes/Camp Hill.
And baking... Harry Potter cupcakes ~ a packet mix for me and my six year old to make together and coconut macaroons which were just as easy as the packet mix to make!
And now I will have to think of something else to do to avoid the pile-o-laundry.

Guilty as charged!
They were good though, especially the icing and I couldn't resist the packaging!
