sadly, however, although it looked amazing, it wasn't quite how i like pavlova. i prefer the base to be quite chewy with a lot of shattery merengue, but this one was really sort of foamy in the middle. so, lesson is (which we already knew): artificial looks perfect, but made-from-scratch tastes a million times better.

there are also dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, sheep, goats and alpacas. they all have names, except the three brown ducks which are known as 'little duck's girlfriends' (little duck is a belligerent white duck who wags his tail a lot).
it is so nice to finally have a couple of days' space. my head has needed clearing for quite some time...a couple of weeks would be nice, but as that won't happen until Christmastime, a few days here and there will do nicely.
we have to find one of the cats now. then we are going to go cook a stir fry, drink some schnapps and perhaps watch firefly, or maybe house of flying daggers.
life is so hard.
