This week I'm grateful for... gingerbread


Yippee, I'm in Melbourne for one night only. I'm down here for work but I'm staying over night and having a wonderful 'Bronny Day' (as my husbie calls them) tomorrow. Oh how I love a Bronny Day. I'm thinking a laze in, leisurely breakfast cooked by someone else and a stroll around the shops.

Despite all the craziness going on around these parts, I just adore this time of the year. I've made a gingerbread house for the first time ever (under careful tutelage from a group of friends), we made a giant star for the front yard (will share when I'm back) and we laughed ourselves silly at the deranged corporate-type we met at a function on Wednesday night. So eager to achieve a 'work life balance' that he couldn't see that work was all he could talk about.




So, this week I'm grateful for...

305. Gingerbread - don't it make you feel good?

306. Time out - heeeeello lovely Melbourne. Thanks for having me.

307. Reminders - my funny Mr Corporate Man was a dear soul and he reminded me just how far I've come this past year.


What's got you grateful this week?

Those Bronny days sound like a lotta fun! Your gingerbread house is just the prettiest. I found a gingerbread candle for $2.95 at Mitre 10 the other day...made in USA...and a cinnamon bun one as well. One is Pillsbury and the gingerbread one is made by Betty Crocker..both bakers, so I am thinking they will smell delicious!

Enjoy your day! I cherish days to myself...it amazes me that I used to have them all the time and never really thought twice about how nice they were!

And I love your gingerbread house! So festive!

That is one cool gingerbread house, Bron. I've stayed right away from them the last couple of years - since the gingerbread house cake wreck capers of 2009 or was it 2010?? Oooohh goodie, the bad memories are obviously dimming;)

Happy Bronny Day to you. Hope it was lovely! xx

emma @ frog, goose and bear said...

What a wet weekend Melbourne has put on for you! Next trip - we must catch up! At this time of year, a day just for you sounds perfect. Enjoy! Loving your gingerbread house. Growing up my mum made one with us every year and this year she came over to do one with my kidlets. Although we cheated and purchased one from woollies this time. Just as good!

Sam Stone said...

Definitely a great idea to be grateful of Gingerbread - I could eat it for every meal.

kristie @Coco's said...

love your gingerbread house Bron, it looks great. We made our first one ever today too...... what an effort!! Made me grateful for Mr.Magoo who pushes our baking boundaries and Miss. Muffet who along with me is so stubborn we never, never give up or in!! It was an afternoon kitchen adventure.

I spent yesterday making 26 sides for gingerbread houses we're making with the grade 2s on Tuesday (yes - we're still at school!!) - love the end results but yesterday I was not so grateful
