G'day All!!!

...just peeking in to say my hello's this fine evening while I sup some very expensive earl grey tea with a dash of milk in my special yellow/white/black art deco fan inspired mug (I know it should be a tea cup lol) and using my very posh small stainless steel teapot for a change...

...on a sadder note the shop where I bought these tea leaves has closed due to economic pressures...it was such a grrrreat shop with a massive selection of different teas and it was such a pretty set up in the shop and the aroma as you walked into the shop was very enticing...they also sold really lovely teacups etc...oh well thats life eh?

...so I will search out other real tea leaf options I guess...and on a positive note I have discovered a gorgeous herbal blue/yellow tea at a nice cafe recently...its very mellow, refreshing, lime green and in the chiffon triangle teabag are petite dried flower heads and some other pods and seeds...I asked for an extra jug of water and ended up having about six cups last time I ordered it lol!!!

teacosy love

ladybirt,
How extravagant! Wish I could be there with you, but alas, the trip alone would cost at least $10,000 (in U.S. cash) just to GET there. Too bad your favorite shop is closing, but I'm glad you found another one.

Have a blessed day!

G'day!!!

...lovely to see ya again (((((Davidf)))))...and that comment you made got me smiling which I thank you for...it is well timed as I needed cheering up as my heart has been heavy with sadness recently...you see my parents adored bengal cat Tommy had to be euthanased this last week due to some health issues...he was 10 years old...anyhows it hit me hard as we all loved that cat sooooo much...he was very purrecious to us with a dear sweet purrsonality...he will be missed terribly but it would not do to have him suffer...he gave us all so many clawriffic memories like how smoochy he could be, his squeaky meow, and how he scampered like a bandicoot, and how he would do this strange jaw chattering if he saw a bird or another cat, and how he loved to drink water from a running tap instead of outta a bowl!!!And he certainly had been lucky to escape death on numerous occassions...really living up to the supposed nine lives cats are said to have...below is a photo of him sleeping...as you can see he had lovely spots...and his fur was so silky and had a shimmer to it in the sunshine...

Hiya!!!

...well in case you were wondering why I haven't been around lately that would be cuz I travelled to the South Island for a week...

...had a lovely time...highlights were finding yet another fairy in Nelson to add to my huge collection...viewing the WOW and classical cars museum in Nelson (WOW is a fashion show held in Wellington each year of wearable art and some of the entries are displayed at the museum in Nelson after the show...they are very creative and theres even a glow in the dark section...its a MUST see and highly recommended if visiting Nelson)...and in my travels I enjoyed a venison pie, lamb/mint pie, lamb shank hot pot, a raspberry spiked chocolate brownie, a hazelnut/lemon mousse slice of gateaux cake with lemon meringue topping...fish and chips and as a big treat BBQ scallops at the Boatshed which was like a bach on stilts overhanging the pier above the sea...the Boatshed is in Nelson and is an award winning restaurant...its expensive yet hugely popular as the food tastes incredible and the setting is magic!!!...

...I also got close to some native birds (wekas and keas) ...which was pretty cool...and the scenery around Arthurs Pass is breathtaking...

...another must see place is Eyebrights in the Nelson area...its a massive store set amongst a gorgeous garden and it specialises in 'pretty' stuff...at this time of the year there were lots of decorated Christmas trees in the shop...they also have Prentzel Liqueurs there which you can sample for free...I had the butterscotch liqueur and cream liqueur which was amazing...I bought two pairs of earrings there...I also bought a very interesting beaded necklace at the mall in Richmond...its paper with typed writing on it rolled into a ball and suspended within an individual see thru bead with silver links between each large marble sized bead...a definate talking point of sorts LOL!!!...

...something I dont enjoy tho' is flying in an aeroplane...I am a very nervy passenger...every time theres turbulance my heart races and my palms perspire nervously...I definately dont look forward to that part of my travels...its nice to be home safely indeed!!!

...righteo time for a cuppa before an early night...I am tuckered out as the expression goes...

love ladybird luv
