Green glass pair of pears.

Wooden pair of pears, bought on Arab Street Singapore.
Non vintage = Perky.


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..

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.


Have a Good Friday.

Who’d a thunk? Bizarre bunch of goodies…

Not the usual egg and bacon strips, these are band aids, comes with rad tin and free pig!

Red enamel egg cup looks like a campfire, my daughter Lily [3] made the little Easter chicky egg

No animals were harmed.
