Ciderlicious – The Hop Factory, Darby Street

Matso's Lime and Ginger

Even though I’m not a beer drinker, there’s plenty of yummy options at The Hop Factory for a lazy Sunday afternoon drink.

Caught up with some friends on the weekend, because one is off north for her final year of uni, and got to taste this delicious Matso’s Lime and Ginger cider. A wonderful summer taste, given I was tossing up between it and the three ginger beers on the menu, it had enough ginger for me :)

The Hop Factory Darby Street Cheese Platter $18

A cheese platter and some live cover music (a guy with an acoustic guitar covering a very wide range of tunes, including Come as you are, some John Butler, and a little Incubus!) made for quite a pleasant afternoon.

Beautiful Garbage @ The Star

Garbage at The Star Sydney

I am so so SO happy that I went to see Garbage earlier this year at The Star (casino, Sydney) and didn’t spend the money on a tank of petrol or a pair of shoes. The energy I get from a live gig, and especially from a band that have provided a soundtrack to the last 15 years of my life?

Freakin’ priceless.

An awesome setlist, with all our favourites, and a few from the new album in amongst it.

With stories interspersed with Shirley Manson’s gorgeous Scottish accent telling us stories and keeping us enthralled. (While sipping Glenfiddich!)

The trick IS to keep breathing.

Things I’ve been loving of late

Happy Monday!

I think it’s time for one of those round up posts of “stuff” I’ve done, or eaten, or used, and LOVED over the past month or so. :D

Food


Basco Gluten Free Carrot Cake packet mix. Picked this up from Coles to make up for the Eurovision party last night, and it went down a treat with the gluten free and gluten full alike! :) Had a nice ginger taste!


Wellaby’s Gluten Free Cheese Ups. I shouldn’t be too surprised that these are a product of Greece given they’re like the packaged snack version of Greek Cheese Triangles. Om nom nom.

At Home


The gorgeous Twenty8 Moituriser I was sent by the lovely ladies at Like Chocolate for Women. Perfect for helping my skin with this cold air around, and with a nice, light, scent. :)


Viva Computer and TV screen wipes that I picked up from a Kleenex Mums event. Great for getting the coffee off my laptop screen (???) and dust off the phone!

Out and About


Dressing up. I brought my suitcase of costumes down from the garage :)


Karaoke. Sober.


Air guitar.


Being a Cat. Or a Catgirl.


Tijuana Cartel. They rocked at the Great Northern on Saturday night. And I loved their two support acts: Pigeon and Holly Who. (Holly Who are playing at The Great Northern again on June 23. Free Entry.) xx

More music, please! :D
