mashed up mess of retro potato mashers 2

In the house that relies too heavily on bangers [not anthems] and mash for me to call myself a foodie and with 2.5 kids  to comfort feed it’s a subject of hot debate. Sadly.

The half man half child prefers to use this one.
It’s what he grew up with.

Title says it all. Not much to add.
If I’m not making sense look it up in the urban dictionary.

Anything that brings Kurt Cobain and Queen Elizabeth onto the same page has to be a source of Jubilation, doesn’t it?
[Her Royal Highness and the Prince of Down-ness]


Its getting into dangerous territory but now I have a [small] collection of souvenir spoons. Some from places I have never seen.

I know, right?
Weird, daggy, a bit urggh. So anyway in Mona Vale Salvos, I found this in a basket . Three for a dollar. I am thinking this was probably the catalyst for someone’s lifetime collection. The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth 1953.

Sometimes second hand shopping is sad. Like you are pillaging someone’s birthrite that they don’t even want, but should.


Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally…

In fact it’s charming, to be blunt.
Watch yourselves gentlemen.
