I have just spent an amazing weekend with some of Australia’s top food bloggers eating and drinking and eating some more at Eat Drink Blog in Canberra. Yesterday I was back at work reminiscing about all the good food to be had and feeling somewhat like a beached whale. But what a weekend! What fun! What greedy food stories I had to tease my work colleagues with! My Facebook and Instagram photos caused not a small amount of food envy.
I have new Ms Frugal Ears business cards. I am quietly proud of them. On the front I describe myself as writer – frugalista – kitchen cook – mother. On the back I have a picture of my new Ms Frugal Ears logo. Every time I hand them out at networking events, at least one person asks me, “what is a frugalista?” (Others ask me what the go is with the ears. It is because my ex Mother-in-Law, who is Taiwanese and understands the whole Chinese face-reading thing, used to tell me my smallish ears indicate I have a frugal personality. I think it is a compliment, or maybe not.)
