I bought a vintage brooch with my initial in Newtown, my old neighbourhood, which changes every time I go back for a visit. It is fast filling up with chain stores and many of the cafes and shops with so much character that used to define Newtown are closing down one by one... I did not make it in time to A Coffee and a Yarn as it is now closed down, and can only hope that some of my favourite shops that are still standing will remain...

I started using some of the new yarn I purchased for my crochet throw project. It is obvious that when I was crocheting the mint green granny square, I was highly strung as it was mid-work week. While  I was crocheting the purple granny square, I was nice and relaxed as I was having drinks and joking with one of my good friends on the weekend... The grey granny square was made on Sunday which shows hints of anxiety (about the work week starting) leaking through my calm weekend disposition.

Reuben Hills did not fail me again, as I caught up with a high school friend whom I have not seen since 2003! My most favourite cafe at the moment, but also the most crowded!

Watched Moon Holiday, who is now a two-piece band...

...and Devotional, whom I love and remind me of Twin Peaks... 

...both at Hotel Hollywood, that recently has started inviting bands to play, 
which I am very glad about as it is so close to my apartment. 

This French Onion Soup did not happen on the weekend, but is a nice start to the new week. 
I successfully cooked it but will try to add less salt next time. You can find the recipe here.
