Springtime Sundays don't come better than today. Perfect sunshine without the heat and no scheduled activities. Now if i didn't have to open my morning paper to nothing but election news (I'm a bit over it), i guess it would have been perfect. Probably would have been more appropriate to have thunder and lightening for all the pending doom that's been forecast but we had clear skies and along with it, lets hope that everyone will get some confidence back and start generating some economic growth. As a manufacturer, my firm has been quoting and quoting. So many jobs are on hold, waiting for the election to be over. Like what did they think would happen? Manna from heaven? Either a job needs to be done or not. So frustrating. I still have to pay wages while everyone sits around waiting for the sun to rise and no doubt they'll wake up this week and realise that they need a 6 week job done in 4 and ill be scratching for the cashflow to pay OT rates.

Well all this pressure washing makes a lot of noise and its wet so the girls, like it or not, go out on the back grass around the veggies. Goodness me, this has taken a while to achieve. A few weeks ago i had to chase them out with a broom and they still aren't eating too many of my kitchen scraps but i think they must finally be starting to get the hang of it. I actually got down on my tummy in amongst them and they didn't scatter so i guess the food lady must be OK.. Yep, you guessed it. A freshy right on the front of my top. Thanks Girls.
|All 5 in the one shot is a miracle. There are definitely two groups still and they are rarely all together.|
|My favourite - Lacy. |
I know Jess but with me she is an absolute angel. You must have brought out her dark side.

Turns out the purple planter boxes i was given are a bit on the shallow side for strawberries so i see some flower seedlings being planted instead. Yes, they are gigantic spring onions next door. They just get bigger and bigger and they have become quite a feature.
So far, its sounding like a sorta OK day but could it get better? You bet. With the teenager still asleep at home, at midday (how do they do that), Hubby and I went to take a look at a new cafe that opened across the road. I mean, we were that close anyway, right?
Check them out here . They supply many of Melbourne's restaurants with deserts and they just opened a retail outlet in Werribee. Woo Hoo!!!!!
Yep, that's right, we had two salads and shared a bottle of diet coke. Now, I'm about to show you what we didn't have. Oh my my. Its not like i didn't want to but i literally couldn't fit it in. Next time, its skip lunch and go straight for the deserts. They make all these on site - seriously - check out their site above.
|Have you seen Tiramisu looking like this?|
|This is the one i would have had - Passionfruit Delice|
OK. If you havent seen all the photos, as in, they are not there, i don't know what i am doing wrong. I'm using Blogger via Chrome and it all looks OK on my phone and my PC. I've gone back and gone through Internet Explorer and they are all there as well so perhaps its just a word press thingy. So, I'm lost. I know others are having problems with my photos. Any idea's?
This is my 100th post - phew and i havent run out of things to say, yet.
