Carnival of Flowers

Last weekend I took the trip to Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers. Friends flew in from Mackay and we spent the weekend at the Food and Wine Festival. This was the first time I have been to something with my girlfriends where I can't have a wine - and we have been going to the Food and Wine festival for a while now. I did ok - I just ate instead of drinking wine. There was organic doughnuts from Byron Bay, Langos from Hungary, the good old jacket potato, Arancini balls, pumpkin asparagus and feta salad and a great juice van which I visited often. Lots of good music and good laughs with great girlfriends. How I wish we all lived closer!
Back home now and Cooper is here (Danny's son) for the school holidays. It is so great having him around - he make me very happy. So a week with him is exactly what I need right now to snap me out of hormonal crankiness.
Yesterday was absurd!!! I was soooooo cranky - nobody could look at me. And I have no idea why. So right now I am waiting for a chocolate cake to cook so I can take it to work with me as an apology for my ridiculous crankiness yesterday. Hopefully bribery willl work.....

Oh yummmmmm..Seriously it all sounds so so good....I do wish I had girlfriends to hang out with from time to time, that would be nice.

But oh yes the crankyness will hit without warning and come and go as it pleases..I have had a few bouts of it myself the past few weeks...No fun
