Littlest Monkey was enlisted to pose for my modelling shoot yesterday arvo so I could get the header photo right. I think he has a new calling. He was prancing and preening about like a professional.
Anyway, hope you like the new look blog.
I must say, I managed to be rather productive yesterday. I successfully herded two monkeys and a borrowed one through the streets of Melbourne on their first teachers' strike. Without losing them or getting them run over by a tram. And I only snapped at Monkey Man three times when I was told to stop stressing. I also managed the more incredible task of keeping three little monkeys in their seats during the speeches and simultaneously quiet and rowdy at the appropriate moments (thanks to chocolate and gadgets and the possibility of appearing on telly if they waved their placards and booed and cheered loudly enough).
Then when we got home I fed them more sugary stuff that we'd forgotten to bring to the rally and let them play on more screens while I made ricotta cheese. Since Gavin from Greening of Gavin came to my place to run a cheese making workshop I have made ricotta a couple of times but haven't yet attempted the mozzarella by myself. Anyway, ricotta is super easy and super satisfying and super yum. You can find a recipe here at Green Living Australia and this is also where I bought a starter cheese making kit.
