I have been lusting after the Leona Edmiston Charlotte Shirtdress in the Ruby Range since it came out and last Week it came out more than half Price but alas not in my Size :( but Today I got a message on my Iphone about a Sale online and checked the Dress and Yeah it was there in my Size for $80 so it will now be flying its way over to me and in time too for a Trip to Melbourne later on in the Month.

As an added note to the above I ordered the Dress Thursday afternoon and it was delivered to Adelaide Friday Lunchtime Thanks to all involved for their Super Service :)

Well Spring is finally here in Australia and I am so looking forward to feeling a bit of warmth I am so over Winter, but the Weather Reports are predicting Rain for about a Week but then the Royal Show is on here in Adelaide and traditionally it always seems to Rain for that time Period.

Well I finally succumbed to buying a Kindle which I will be picking up today I have been umming and ahhing about buying an Ereader for quite a while after non stop research trying to pick the one best suited to me as I only want it for reading I don't need all the bells & whistles of an Ipad I have my MacBook for that. I even went to Gelaskins & designed my own Cover in anticipation. I have the Kindle App on my Phone and MacBook so I have an array of Books ready to go onto my Kindle when I get It :)

Reading Nook

Well the weather in Adelaide has been terrible this past week with one lovely Day on Sunday so now is a good time to catch up on some Reading. Waiting for some books to arrive from overseas with anticipation but have plenty here to catch up on just started reading "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova which looks very interesting.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to receive a Copy of Phillipa Fioretti's "The Fragment of Dreams" which I won online so Thanks Phillipa
Phillipa is a new Author to me and I was very happy to find out that she currently calls South Australia home.

So with some lovely classical Music playing lowly in the Background I am now set for a few good afternoons of reading what a shame the Gardening will have to wait.

Adelaide Cabaret 2011

We went to see Jane Clifton at the Adelaide Cabaret Thursday night she was doing a Show based on her Book "The Address Book", accompanied by a great Trio of Musicians she shared her Musical Journey from Birth to Present Day singing such songs as "How much is that Doggy in the Window"
and a fantastic version of "Take Five" and finishing up with her own hit "The Girl on The Wall " a thoroughly entertaining Show.

After that we went and had a few Drinks in the Piano Bar and were lucky enough to catch Ali McGregors Late-Nite Variety Nite Night she had Guests from the Cabaret perform including Jane Clifton & Storm Large plus her Comedy Butler Saxon McAllister and Magician Captain Frodo what a wonderful Show and it was Free.

David Campbell has done a wonderful Job on the Adelaide Cabaret while he's been in charge and I wish him Good Luck for all his future Endeavours.

My Heart Wanders by Pia Jane BijKerk

Ordered myself this lovely Book yesterday about a Women who follows her Heart and where it leads her to, it sounds quite enjoyable as I absolutely adored Mary Moody's Books about her Sabbatical to France when she turned 50, I found they satisfied the need in all of us to escape our everyday lives and maybe explore the what ifs.

I usually can quench these occasional thoughts by giving myself a certain Budget and seeing what Houses I could pick up in England and Ireland and I find that reality sets in and Australia is where I want to be even though I wasn't born here but have spent the majority of my life here it is my home but it's nice to Daydream and we have a Bush Block that someday maybe that little dream Cottage will reside.

Patricia Harwin Books

I had a lovely Weekend away bush and took some Books to read there was one I thoroughly enjoyed called "Arson and Old Lace" by Patricia Harwin the first in the Mystery Series about Catherine Penny a Retiree Divorced New York Librarian who relocates to a Village in England and stumble across a few Murders I have had this Book in my TBR pile for a few Years so I was looking forward to Purchasing the Series but Alas I found out that she only Published one other Book in the Series called "Slaying is such Sweet Sorrow" so I bought the Ebook of that one but I will be sad to see the last of Catherine Penny , the Books are a bit similar to the "Agatha Raisins" by M C Beaton but where as Agatha took a few Books for me to warm to her the Character of Catherine was likeable from the Start if anyone has some similar Series to these Please let me know as I love my Cozy's.

Confession Time

I have a guilty Secret I must confess here and now I am a Big Doctor Who Fan and when I say Big I watched the first Episodes back in the UK in the 60's with my Cousin and as a 50 plus Woman I am still watching and enjoying it, even my Son when he was young was placed in front of the ABC to watch Doctor Who and he became a walking Encyclopedia on all the Monsters and Gadgets plus I bought him all the Books and Annuals my Son passed away aged Thirteen 13 Years ago and I can still feel his presence when I watch the current batch of New Doctors so its nice to have something constant in my life that gives me comfort and enjoyment. Just a a harmless Guilty Pleasure.

Trish Deseine's - Trish's French Kitchen

I've just pre-ordered "Trish's French Kitchen: Delicious Recipes to Suit Every Occasion" from the Book
Depository it's not available till July 14th  Bastille Day quite appropriate.

 I've watched her Show on the Lifestyle Food Channel and love the way she Shops for everything Daily at the Markets so being a Lady of leisure and having a fantastic Fruit & Veg Shop a short walking distance away and a Barossa Fine Foods at the Local Shopping Centre also walking distance it's the kind of cooking I really take to not only can I cook fantastic food but I can get my daily exercise by walking to buy my Groceries like a lot of the Europeans do, but no I'm not going back in time because I will have my Trusty Iphone with me to listen to Music and maybe take a few Pics along the way.

I will also share one of Trish's lovely and easy Chocolate Desert Recipes very yummy but don't eat too much :)

Adelaide 1966

I was lucky enough to stumble across this Video on Tumblr via Youtube it's a great little Movie on Adelaide in 1966 it runs for about 20 Minutes and for any other Adelaideans growing up in this Era it is wonderful to look back and recognise lots of the Buildings and Places, there are some other Movies on the other Capital Cities for the same time so I'll be having a look at those as well. Please reminisce and enjoy :)
