We went over to Victoria Park together with a picnic while our sig. others spent the day with their parents. (Mal's husband and my boyfriend are brothers. Adorable, yes.) It was lovely and I made delicous things for us to nibble and we had a pot of strawberry pomegranate tea. (I promise I've not been hired by Stash to endorse them, I just really love their tea.*)
This is me today:
You can't actually see it, but I finally got my septum re-pierced after my horrible tearing accident in February. I really missed it, although I have the wear the small ring for a while until it heals properly.
Mal leant me his coat when it got too cold.
He's rather chivalrous like that.
I still had a few raspberry cupcakes left over and so we made a detour on the way home to go to Deirdre Rose's house, where I promptly ignored everyone and ran off to the study to quickly write down the song that was fully forming in my head.
I recorded it half an hour later down in her studio and I'll probably put it up on the website in a few days as long as I'm still liking it then. At the moment I think it's a rather beautiful acapella ballad on Persephone/Kore, influenced by my choice of tea flavour ;)
* That said: Stash, call me and we'll make it happen. I'm ready and willing to be your taste-test bunny and tea-promoting good time gal.
