The past few days have been hard. A very very dear friend found out her unborn babe had died on Wednesday, and birthed him on Thursday. Her baby, Xavier, was a very much longed for boy. She's on the other side of this wide brown land, and it's never felt quite so wide before. I'm going over soon, but I wish we were closer.

So ... something brief today.

The husband needed a new hot water bottle (despite the warnings, he insists on using boiling water, and eventually the old one sprang a leak. In the bed. He got the wet patch - heh!). Of course, a new hot water bottle needed a new hot water bottle cover. In bright bright orange and black.

Apparently I have to remove the decorative elements though. I did insist they were manly geometric shapes, but no dice.

The other thing I've made this week is coconut macaroons:

1 tin condensed milk
4-5 cups shredded coconut
1/3 cup plain flour

Drop teaspoonfuls on a tray lined with baking paper.
Bake at 180 C for 10 mins.

Allow to cool, and try to pack some away before they all disappear at once.


And lastly, a gratuitous lemon photo, just because it's beautiful and bright and just what I need.
