R has decided smaller portions are better for us and the way to go about it is to serve the food on the centre of the table and then help ourselves and I think he is correct, we are eating a bit less.These tongs cost about $14 in Maling Road, Canterbury. The $2 supermarket ones are better.
The Spanish wine mentioned a couple of weeks ago. Waddya reckon Mitch? A good drop?
How the other half live on New Year's Day, Domain Road South Yarra.
Isn't half the fun of a barbeque doing it yourself? In my case that is watching R do it. This one was professionally catered in parkland along Domain Road. A little girl kicked a ball with her daddy. Little Jo does not care to kick a ball and is such a disappointment to her mothers.
Our relatively new carpet was stained and in spite of some thirty years of removing stains from carpets, especially when we had pets, these ones beat my efforts. Woolmix, Borax poultice, Shellite, nothing worked. I don't know what they are or when they happened and neither does R. Visitors, I reckon. This one at the dining table.
And this one, so obvious at the balcony door with daylight shining directly on it.
I was getting quite distressed by the stains, so I thought I would try a commercial product. Spray it on and wait a few minutes for it to dry to a white powder then vacuum. It is brilliant. Not a trace of any stain remains and a couple of weeks later, nothing has reappeared.
An amusing and tasty gift from Our Friend in Japan, translated as cat's tongues. The chocolate is unlike any chocolate I have tasted before. It is not sweet and creamy milk chocolate, but nor is it bitter dark chocolate. Let's just say it is mild.
An older woman graffiting a building hoarding. Her behaviour was very odd. I forgot to check what she had written. There was already plenty of graffiti on the hoarding. I am just wondering if there was something written relating related to the murder that took place there last year, and she was covering it up.
We were in town and made it home before the rain started. Five minutes walk from The Highrise, this was the scene at the Domain (tram) Interchange. Thanks for the photo Fen and the Channel 7 screen grab.
As you can see, it absolutely p.............recipitated down.
By evening, all was quite benign, with the Spirit of Tasmania setting sail as scheduled. I hope my cropping of the ugly building rooftop meets with Hels approval.
