My logo in 3d. Its taken a while for the universe to throw these 2 characters in my path.

I saw this vintage faux vintage sign at The Antique General Store
North Narrabeen.


@mattblatt showroom

I did not buy this. Redundant.

I considered this.

And wanted this [the bottomless coffee for 5c].


The contents of this fruit bowl more on the sad side really.
This literally all that was in it one day, not looking quite so positive however.


Behind The Scenes:

I wouldn’t use pictures of my kids normally but I’ve thought a few times about sharing this. It all happened quite naturally, not set up. In fact I am often photoshopping out little hands, as they think its hilarious to creep them in. Anyway this is Lily.

And this is Happy Fruit 2, The Sequel

Amazed when the shot re-formed organically for me after I bought this at Barnados Brookvale.
Had to swap a pear for another apple that’s all.  [Stayed tuned for Pears. I can hear your excited intake of breath, I know.]
Anyway, I thought the coincidence was too much to not share..

Another failed attempt at trying to not become a Small Homeless Object Shelter…

Added small cart to cart.

Oniyon deviant art

Touched by the Hand of Gran

Headed North to Queensland [solo] for a few days to catch up with a friend and some sun.

Bought this mirror not from the ginormic Eumundi Markets I got to, but years earlier at the Camden UK ones.

[Not for sale.]
I would love another like this about 400% larger.
Is approx 25cm, rad.


Aging plastic picked up on the Sunshine Coast.
And I don’t mean me. I’m like soooo young, can’t you tell?

The aforementioned oversize inedible fruit bowl sans lemon.


Inspired by the ‘thrifting’ [in Australia we Op-Shop] of this excellent edition:

comes some other Lemon related stuff…

Bought this for $1 at Avalon Red Cross [to go in my weird bowl of oversize inedible fruits.]
Love that it in the end I broke it before it got home. Obviously a true lemon, a real dud, or maybe I am.

On the subject of duds…

This is Liz Lemon. On Jury Duty. [But not as the Rural Juror]
The best female character on TV since Elaine Benes.

Ep 3 Series 3 BLIND DATE:

Jack [Alec Baldwin]:  How was your evening with Thomas?

Liz Lemon [Tina Fey]: You mean Gretchen Thomas, the brilliant plastics engineer slash lesbian? What made you think I was gay?

Jack: Your shoes.

Liz Lemon: Well I’m straight.

Jack: Those shoes are definitely bi-curious.

Liz Lemon: Regardless, I am straight. One-hundred precent completely straight.

Jack: Well I’m sorry if I offended you.’


Lemon Spread

I found this recipe but I’m a fraud as I have never made lemon curd in my life. I’m sure it’s good though, being Jamie Oliver’s.

What I know about Lemons without using Wikipedia & Google:

Lemon trees smell amazing.

Half a lemon juice in hot water first thing in the morning and last thing at night is good for the digestion & complexion.

A natural bleaching agent.

Kick a Germ Juice:
Juice 1 Lemon, 2 or 3 cloves Garlic, Grated Ginger similar amount to garlic, a teaspoon or 2 of Honey [preferably Manuka or a non pasteurised non supermarket variety] & add crushed Panadol if you are inclined. Leave to stand for a bit in an infuser, strain or drink it all for those not afraid of lumpy bits.
[Can’t remember who owns this recipe, got it off an NBN Television morning show I worked on a long time ago.]

To remove rust marks off clothing pour lemon juice over then cover with salt and leave in the sun. This really works.

Its good for cleaning I believe. Might have to google that.

Losing my zest…Lemon out.


Coffee is real good when you drink it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.

Gertrude Stein

Sleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation.

Author Unknown

Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?

Albert Camus

Go ahead, make my day.

Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan, Sudden Impact
Best coffee movie scene ever shot.

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

T.S. Eliot

I would rather suffer with coffee than be senseless.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Way too much coffee. But if it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.

David Letterman

Kitty once had money, now she’s a little rough round the edges.
A chip [or two] on the shoulder but this beauty has 9 lives.
Be one of them.

The Stig’s running on empty too.  Spent it all on top gear.

Both need saving[s].
