Did you watch Sesame Street as a kid? If so, and even if not, you’ll probably understand the reference. It’s the fifth month, so today is all about the number 5. Whatever has even the most tenuous connection to the number, can be seen in this months Polish days manicures.
I went with ’5 a day’ – the daily recommended dose of fruit and veg here (I swear it’s ’2 and 5′ back in Australia). These are my favourite fruit and veg. I’ve loved sweetcorn since I was old enough for solids, and lost a few baby teeth to corn on the cob. Apples are boring I know, but they’re easy, and I’m lazy. Avocados are probably one of the few food items that I miss from living in Australia. I was convinced they were awful until about 6 or 7 years ago until I saw the light, and though they’re common here they’re never as flavoursome as Australian avos. Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries. I have been known to eat so many that I’ve come out in a rash, but even that didn’t deter me. Thank goodness I don’t live near a strawberry farm. As for broccoli, it’s probably on a par with cabbage and brussels for me, but it’s a crap load easier to translate into nail art!
I’m getting hungry now!
I should apologise for my rubbish photos. I used the manual setting on my camera for white balance and well, it’s not turned out well. Everyone seems to bang on about manual settings but I should have listened when the Mr said he bought this camera because it’s supposed to have the best point and click results for close up imagery! Now if only I could remember how to put it back to auto…
