Ahead or behind?

One could say I'm a season behind.. while another could say I'm a season ahead.  Let me tell you why.

Last week, on my way home from work, I found myself at Zomp shoes... looking at boots.  Even though the following day was forecast to be 29C/84.5F!  If I need anything in Melbourne it's coats and boots, yet I struggle to justify spending good amounts on either.  Go figure!  I had identified a need for flat, rubber soled, leather boots many winters ago but couldn't find a perfect pair, until I stumbled upon these at 70% off the original price.  My footwear for next winter is solved, yet I still haven't found new summer sandals that I so need.  And wouldn't you know it, within 24 hours the temperature halved and it rained.  Love my new boots.

I also made use of the cool weather to do some cooking.  A rare luxury for me.  Considering the number of commitments that I've taken on this year, having a few spare hours to cook more than a stir fry makes me happy!  I made Krofne aka Serbian donuts.  Although mine didn't turn out as fluffy and light as Dragana's or my mum's.  They can be eaten sweet (sprinkled with sugar or nutella or jam) or savory with cheese spreads.  


  1. Great boots - love Zomp! And yummy looking doughnuts too... x

  2. wow, those boots are perfect!!! I totally need some rain ones too, i like those a lot because they are different than all the other rubber boots1

  3. Those boots are super cool! And baking is always fun especially when it's raining outside. It looks delicious! xxoxoxoo

  4. i love your new boots and totally would have jumped on them, too! it's seems easier to buy for seasons we're not in...not sure why. for me it's less pressure i think. hmmmm

    and the krofne?? i need some of that goodness in my life!


  5. Love them! I went without a pair last season as i simply can't find anything i like. ... Krofne look amazing:) My mum always serves them with nutella too:)

  6. Those are THE perfect boots for SE Australia............

  7. Mmmm I love Krofne!!
