Through Lemon Coloured Glasses

Meet Dee.  She is slightly cheerful, optimistic and favourable.  She is not over the top and  thinks her glasses help her keep things in perspective.  Dee is the second eldest of four siblings and we all think she's a bit of an OK.

Robert with a Shovel

I found this old drawing I did a couple of years ago of my little brother.  I miss him alot.  He was a cute little kid with a wild imagination and love for dinosaurs and botany.  Now he's going to study to be a librarian.  I hope it works out for him.

Road Trip with Ro-Ro and Ronald

Rosie aka Ro-Ro and Ronald have been talking about going on a road trip together for AGES! Today they're finally on their way. They're not real big planners so they don't have an itinerary but they do have a check list of things to do - eat lavender icecream where possible, raid every thrift store they pass, take photos of old couples on park benches, climb atleast three trees etc etc. It should be a fun trip.

A big softie

Last Thursday my husband ended up surprising me for our (dating) anniversary with the perfect Autumn cup and saucer set and dinner reservations at a lovely albeit slightly pretentious Thai restaurant. Apparently he went shopping last weekend and stumbled across the tea set at a little vintage store in Silverlake and thought of!

Five Whole Years or Sixty Months!

I can't believe it's already been five years since my husband and I first started dating. The time we've spent together has been absolutely amazing and I can't wait for the rest...even though he thinks we should only celebrate our wedding anniversary because we're married now!

Jeannie the Lollyologist

Jeannie is a little anxious today. She is interviewing for the position of lollyologist (hard candy maker). It's been her dream job since she was a little girl. Her interest in hard candy began when her nanna would give her tiny pillow shaped lollies from a small glass jar. At first Jeannie thought the colourful lollies were tiny jewels and it took her till they started melting in her hand to realise that they really were candies and could be eaten. The moment she popped one into her mouth she was hooked and there was no turning back for our shiny little sugar fiend.
