It's been a looooong time since I've been on LJ. I have a lot to update on, but I'm the middle of bringing together my Facebook, my blogging, my business website and other things, so for now I'm just going to post my most recent blog entry here, and promise to come back later tonight for some updatey goodness.



Yes, back blogging but THAT'S NOT THE POINT!!!
My mojo is back! After more than a year of making soap, I was starting to lose my mojo a little. I still loved making soap, but I was sad because I wasn't having any new ideas. And then this morning, BAM! I have ideas for three unique new vegan soaps. And I am so freaking excited. Pretty soon, I'll be making the new webshop public and then I can share the fruits of my labours. Not spilling the beans yet though... soon, my preciouseseses!

I know you can't see me, but I'm positively bouncing up and down right now.

Also- a recipe idea for my veg*n friends.

I've seen this called 'mock tuna salad'. To be truthful, it tastes nothing like tuna but is reminiscent in its textures and flavours. It's also packed with protein, fibre and general deliciousness. Here's the basic idea:

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1-2tb of you favourite vegan mayonnaise or substitute (Praise 97% fatfree is vegan and that's what I use. It's nice and tangy)
2tb minced parsley
1-2 minced dill pickles
1 spring onion, minced
Other 'tuna salad' type ingredients. I like finely chopped celery, red capsicum, mustard, re-hydrated wakame, a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar... go wild, use your imagination)

Fork mash the chickpeas. (You can bung them in a food processor, but I like a little texture). Mix in all your other stuffs. Season to taste. Serve anyway you like. Some ideas- on bread, as a sandwich- Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese goes well. On toast. Stuffed into any vegetable you like, possibly grilled? I plan to try it on toast with vegan cheese on top and then grilled. Mock tuna melt!

I freaking hate packing!

Expect lots of short ranty posts from me over the next couple of days.

See my happy little Pocoyo icon? Know what that means? YEP! We got the house! We really did! I'm so stinking excited! They're even giving it to us for the advertised price of $300/pw rather than the $320/week we offered, which means a saving of almost $90/month. Good thing!

I'm just going to copy/paste the email I sent my dad- it has all the info (except I obviously won't be posting the new address here).

Ello! I saved some pics of the house before they get taken offline. If you go to: http://flickr.com/photos/d0tski/tags/house/ you'll be able to see them. Click on the individual pics to view them, and roll your mouse over to find the notes :)

Here's the agent's description:


Step inside this stylish rendered home located in the heart of Mill Park. Comprising 3 bedrooms plus study, ceramic tiles, undercover entertainment area, ensuite with spa, garage,dbl carport,shed,timder kitchen,rumpus/dining room,L shaped lounge. Other features include ducted heating, split system, dishwasher, alarm system. An inspection will impress you!

The entire house is done with ceramic tile floors which means very cool in summer, good for allergies and easy to sweep clean. Beautiful colour scheme, big living areas, GREAT kitchen.
It really is very lovely, and Dave and I are stressed over the move, but excited :)  We're hoping to move in early April.

Anyway! Gotta go organise packing and such now!

Love, Bec

The guy from the realestate agent just called about half an hour ago... and we got the house! We got it! I'm so happy I could cry or chew my arm off or... I don't even know!

Only bad thing is, I CAN'T GET HOLD OF DAVE! He's not at his desk, his mobile is switched off and he hasn't checked his email! I'm going insane!

i'm afraid to call the estate agent to hear if we got the house.

i'm almost certain that we haven't.

but maybe, just maybe, we did.

but if I call and he says no, I will be so upset (even though I don't think we'll get it, hearing it is going to really hurt).

the idea of calling makes me feel sick.

waiting is making me feel sick.

i don't know what to do.
