The rain managed to subside for the last two days here in Brisbane, Queensland, just enough to top up my slowly diminishing vitamin D levels, and say goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011.
One of the great things about the festive season, for me, is going into the shops and seeing all those kitchen goodies come down in price by 40 or 50 per cent. And this year I enjoyed taking advantage of these sales - thanks to some very generous engagement gift vouchers my beloved and I still had in our possession - and bought a five piece stainless steel scanpan set. I've only cooked with cheap, but practical, saucepans and frypans ever since I left home (about 12 years ago), so I cannot express my excitement at this purchase.

Happy New Year!
