...and apparently this is a problem that I need to overcome. So this blog (in its current incarnation, from 2010 ->) is an exercise in learning to write NOT like a scientist, about anything - food and film, books and study, life, love and everything. Thanks for reading!
I love having a vase of flowers in the house. Even when money is a little tight, as it is now that I'm studying for my PhD and only working part time, I can usually find some spare change in the budget for fresh blooms. I have to say, Melbourne has what I think to be very reasonably priced cut flowers, especially at the markets. These beauties are from one of the three flower stalls in Prahran Market (will check the seller name next time) and only $12
unceremoniously dropped on the bench (while i put away the fruit & veg)
hmm... flower arranging is not my strong suit
What do you think? Is $12 an allowable luxury for a supposed struggling student?
