    I hope your toilet works now! Poor thing. I did laugh out loud reading all this though.

    If it makes you feel better, I tripped and fell while running yesterday and have a skinned knee like a little kid. 🙂

  2. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I feel terrible laughing at your misfortunes but this was hilarious! I’m intrigued by that pretty little green slice, and the thought of frozen peanut butter rice krispie treats.

    1. Ellie@fitforthesoul

      haha tooootally agreed! Especially the green goods. Omgsh Hannah! that’s so crazy, you look exactly like Laura Ingalls in that picture! Almost the same cute little face? 😀 You look gorgeous in that black/white dress, and I bet the dessert is avocado! 😉

    The green slice is making me go crazy. Is it mint, pistachio or spinach? I’ll accept all three:)

  4. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    These are excellent life lessons, thank you.

    I LOVE that new dress! I went through a huge Cue phase a while ago – and must go back and check out their range….it has been a while!

    Dress looks GREAT. Synchronicity, huh? Guess which book I just put down to turn on my computer?

    ‘You can call me Vivian.’
    ‘Thanks, Mrs Regan.’
    ‘Oh, go to hell, Marlowe.’

    P.S. A friend sent me this Oscar Wilde quote via txt yesterday:

    “We’re all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

    That’s my kinda (cynical, poetic) affirmation. 🙂

    To go with no. 3.. Same applies after having a massage. Because your masseuse will not tell you you have panda eyes. Neither will the girl at Coles (why is she so mean to us?)..

      Or the chiropractor. Which explained the sympathetic looks I got in the chemist yesterday where I was purchasing concealer. Presumably they assumed I needed it to mop up my apparently distraught face.

      My advice of the day when polishing your shoes, check that you don’t get any polish on the sole of your shoe, after wandering the house trying to work out what the new black marks on the carpet are, you will realise they are you and every step you have taken has made more.

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha I get it I get it! 😛 And I love that dress, it’s so cute on you! 😀

  10. Lizzi

    UMMMM guess who tried that dress on yesterday at lunchtime?!!! hahaha great minds/exquisite tastes 😉

  11. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    hahahahah frozen rice krispy treats! yes, i noticed that too – it has an ice cream bar like texture 😀 how many did you end up eating? lol. whenever i stay at home, i naturally gravitate towards the refrigerator…!

  12. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh no! Oh no, oh no. There I was thinking my bad week had left, when really it had made a sneaky exit to Canberra. You have my utmost sympathy and empathy, especially on the plumbing front (I think your scenario may actually be more inconvenient than no hot water!).

    I vote that you call anyone and everyone who might be able to look at the toilet, reschedule the Laura Ingalls Wilder + peanut butter + couch session, wear the new dress everywhere because it’s gorgeous :), and stare down the Coles girl like the Great Big Smudgy event was all in her imagination xo

  13. penny aka jeroxie

    Advice? Well….. sun is out and we should all go out and have a little fun 🙂

  14. hungryandfrozen

    You can hold the rice krispie treats over your eyes during the gory bits, then eat them during the happy bits (ratio of happy to gory bits means the slice won’t go so fast).

    Have Been There with people staring at you and it turns out you’re smudgy/stained/unbuttoned etc. More than twice.

    Am trying to guess the significance of the dress to Sookie Stackhouse, all I can think is that Sookie is always wearing cool dresses but hardly ever wears cardigans? 😉 because that is a cool dress.

    Looking forward to seeing what that green thing is 🙂

  15. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Looking forward to finding out more about that cake thing. Oh, and my advice is to wear that lovely new dress out soon and strut your stuff! 🙂

  16. Johanna GGG

    As it happens, I do have some advice – seeing that you don’t like blocked toilets beware small children with plastic bits of toilet roll holders around toilets – Sylvia threw some down ours last week and I am thanking my lucky stars we haven’t had a blocked toilet – yet!

    love how you have your weekend ritual with your mum – I used to love sitting and watching the bill with my mum – now saturday nights just aren’t the same without it – but I have a hankering to get the seachange boxset so am glad you seem to love it

    My piece of advice: if you knowingly remove your apartment key from your room key-ring and place it on your person in order to go for a run, don’t get distracted and lock your room key into your room, as it will delay said run.

  18. whisperinggums

    You don’t need no stinkin’ advice from me … youse all growed up now.

  19. Helen (grabyourfork)

    lol synchronicity does have a way of cropping up when you least want it! I must confess I cannot stop thinking about your peanut butter rice krispie slice now (oh how you taunt me!), and zomg you look gorgeous in that Cue dress!

  20. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Aww girl I hope everything works out for you soon!! I recently made brownies with rice crispies and now am obsessed with making more rice crispy treats that I, of course, also cannot stop eating :p

  21. Rach

    Hope your toilet starts working soon!

    Love your dress, by the way!

  22. Adrian (Food Rehab)

    Only thing I can advise you is to keep doing what you’re doing- inspiring all your readers and making us laugh and cry with you.

  23. msihua

    I learnt today that you look hot in Cue dress number 2 🙂 And I still want irrelevant lizard. And I want a panda too now 🙁

  24. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I believe that learning from experience is the best, and of course you can also successfully learn from other’s experiences. Well, as long as you aren’t me and have to experience everything yourself. 😀 Thank you for this, Hannah!

    […] taking care of their family, my family. To thank them for always taking care of me, whether through fixing my apartment’s plumbing, nagging me to buy their car but not nagging me about the fact that I haven’t actually sorted out […]

  26. Vaala ◪

    I don’t know if it is useful, but if you’ve already seen several cars try to get out of your street when it’s snowing and fail, and then a 4WD with chains fail, there’s probably no point in trying yourself because you’ll only end up in the gutter like everyone else. Just stay home (or run to work…depends on your mood).

    Like I said, probably not very helpful but you never know. Wish my brain worked so I could think of something more useful. But don’t worry, going shopping for a new brain tomorrow.

    Eat proper food, not just dessert, and cook the damn stuff.

    Tehee! Notice the theme in my comments tonight?
