Nice one. Is this an annual event?

Yes, it is. I overheard someone claiming it was the first one they had been to which wasn't raining :) [it did rain last year, but not much].

This is not mundane but I'll allow it ;)

Why, thank you for your gracious permission.
Yesterday I came third in a cupcake cooking competition at work. Mundane enough? ;)

They looked pretty mundane - not to be compared with the Pikachu cupcakes made by a colleague. They tasted OK, though: Sticky date with caramel icing (basically, caramel sauce with added icing sugar...) [RECIPE]

It's Rare Books Week in Melbourne.  Time to hear about all the books that I'd really love to read but don't have make time for.  Some with beautiful covers, too (though now I do most of my reading on a Kindle).

Tonight was Juvenile Books of War, many of them suitably jingoistic, particularly early in the wars, and with the old-style covers.

I love the concept of the Christmas Truce, and there was a lovely tiny book with a Christmas Truce poem and some beautiful illustrations.  The poem itself with some of the illustrations is here (I also like the film Joyeux Noel - both because of the Christmas Truce, and because it has one of the most chilling sermons ever).

Then had the fun of bus replacement, heavy rain, hail, and a very close and bright flash of lightning just before I got home.  Generally just good times as only Melbourne can provide ;) .

It's long and yellow (and garter stitch). I'm going to Spotlight today to buy some black or grew pop poms to put on the end. Maybe I'll post a picture ;D

Been clocking out at around 3am for a few days now but I'm aiming to schleep at 9:30 and get up at 5. When the house is quiet and there are no distractions it seems to do wonders for my productivity.

What are you usually doing in the early hours of the morning? Haha. Good idea trying to get it back. 👍
