Gustavo Cerati – August 11th 1959 to September 4th 2014

I’m going to start this post with what got me into Cerati in the first place. This image above. I saw the video (Te llevo para que me lleves) many years ago and I just loved his daft sense of humour and of course his voice. Even in his last videos, he’s still having a joke and being silly. This is how I’m going to remember him.

Well, I should have had something prepared for this post as I think we all knew in our hearts things weren’t going to get much better.

Though part of me never actually even contemplated that I’d be here writing about his passing. It’s weird as to the timing as I changed my profile pic on twitter from the Cerati one (below) to my own face for the first time in 4 years only last week.

fitness dvds april 2014 A range of dvd’s I like to use as part of my fitness

I’ve been meaning to write this post for about a year. I’ve been exercising over the last 20 years on and off though in the last 2 years I’m so happy that I found ballet fitness and apart from a break 6 weeks ago from it (as I have been spring cleaning my home) I’m now back at it and so happy to be getting fit again.

I’ve been pretty active on and off for years. Though a while ago I stopped doing my fitness and cut back on my permaculture work (lots of active movement there) and I put weight on. I was shocked by how much. So I decided to do something about it. I’ve tried over the years many forms of fitness and doing just one type just bores me senseless. I also didn’t like all the equipment that goes with certain types of exercise and I prefer to workout alone than do group aerobics (in a live class) gyms are a no no (the music drives me nuts) or the idea of a personal trainer.

Yummy Vegan Pancakes, Baby!

banana and choco pancakes 5

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged so I thought let’s start with some good old pancakes (pancakes, broccoli and mashed potatoes are my favourite foods – though not together!)

I love pancakes, with lots of different fillings, my favourite is melted chocolate and banana, with a splash of lemon. Pancakes are actually so easy to make, you just need a decent frying pan, I use a frying pan/wok type thing. It’s quite big, I prefer bigger pancakes as you can put more stuff into them and they look great when you roll them up.
