Next instalment

So, mention of long tresses in my last post because yesterday I went and plocked down in a chair at the local ladies salon and said "Cut it all off." Which they did. I must be mad, winter's coming. But I'm happy!

Meanwhile, up in the skies, the lads seem to be having a fine old time.

"Cheeeese! You've got a microphone up your nose."

The dog and I have just lit a fire (he supervised from a safe distance) and we're about to do some quilting. At least, I'll operate the needle and quilt; he'll operate the zzzZZzzz noises.


Fly by

So, I got a noisy phone call. REALLY noisy. And yet, somewhere in all the buzzing and loud droning, I could hear the happy yells of my lovely husband.

"Go outside in ten minutes!" he shouted, "Look up."

Sure enough.

I waved my straw hat down in the big green paddock feeling like some dame in some 1940s movie.

The fingers of the wind tossed my long tresses and I turned around to share the moment with .... the dog, uninterested, sniffing with intention at a shrub.

Oh well.

Have fun, lads!

Hit that food town.

Very exciting. A very important friend - who since we worked together back in the dark ages has become a successful and high-profile food writer - is in town for a few days to do with the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. As a very important addition, we've agreed to do a flying B&J Food Tour of Melbourne...

So, that'll be The VicMarket-MedWholesalers-Enotica&BooksforCooks-Dolchetti and off to ours afterwards, then! Enough to make you bite on a rose.

Further details soon. Did I mention 'very important'? Good.
