Things that are making me happy this week

01. We went to the Rain Room. It’s a strange and extraordinary experience.

02. Black Star Pastry have done a collab with the Rain Room as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. So we had (!) to eat a piece of Rain cake and a piece of Strawberry and Watermelon cake (both delicious but the Rain cake was the winner).

03. Saw two movies – French Exit and Girls Can’t Surf – both terrific. And now planning a stay at Pam Burridge’s women’s surf retreat with my surf buddy (we ‘peaked’ in 1991 and laughed about that during the movie).

04. More on movies – one of my 2020 favourites (Writers & Lovers by Lily King) is hitting the screen.

05. Lunch and a stroll around Heide this week (the Patricia Piccinini exhbition was…. um… challenging… and the Robert Owen a ‘visual cleanse’).

06. Obsessed with Deutschland 83 (on Stan in Australia).

07. This week the Yarra Project took us to the spot where the Plenty River meets the Yarra.

  1. Oh, I loved Deutschland 83 when it was as screened in the UK a few years back. The music was brilliant. Sadly the second series wasn’t a patch on the first.

  2. I loved the audiobook of French Exit but really wish the ending was done differently. I didn’t know there was a movie. Also, how is Writers and Lovers already a film? The book just came out recently, I thought!
