12 August 2013, or Ten:

I make the effort to sweeten a Monday with a visit to Shoebox Cafe to say hello to sweethearts Sammi and Beth while enjoying an espresso from the cutest little cup.

eee.

eee.

Shoebox was one of my first stops when I arrived in Hobart and I still adore them. Surprisingly, it’s taken me almost a year to actually sit my butt down and dine in for once! It’s normally just so easy to grab a delicious pide to run away with.

or as Siri says, “Show-barx”

Then it’s off to a full day of work for The Man, finishing the day with a facetime date with my hetero lifemate back in Brisbane (a weekly event for us when we’re diligent, normally accompanied by an episode of America’s Next Top Model).

(not current, but a good example)

(not particularly current, but a good example of one of our finer date night efforts)

Oh, and I’m also learning French via my iPhone duolingo app, in preparation for a white Christmas in Quebec this year. Duolingo’s teaching me some very useful phrases.
