Is it still fortuitous when said penny falls from your own pocket?
Please excuse this picture as lovingly stolen from Flickr and then graffitied by me, as I have only had coffee and a piece of lemon slice today and the sugar and caffeine are playing havoc with my brain. This is a Botta's Pocket Gopher - I was hoping the picture would organically infer that one should keep such a creature in one's pocket and therefore not lose their change as I did today, but it doesn't appear to have worked well at all. It looks like he's just won the Rat Olympics.

Nicole Kidman's wardrobe was heaven sent. It was all designed by Catherine Martin, who has used the Lady Sarah Ashley character as inspiration for a new, exclusive (and super expensive) line for RM Williams. Its all rather flamboyant and romantic and cos I'm still in the lovesick throes of the movie, I'm rather taken by it all.

I got given an ipod touch!!
It has changed my life! I am a different person! I am way cooler for a start!
I loaded it up and culled songs that appeared across albums more than once, except for this one! I think it may be on there 3 times!
I love love love this song! (see how I did the 3 times thing there again!)
One afternoon in the unibar, my friends and I planned how we would make our own film clip, but several rounds of Pina Coladas later plans stalled, which sucks cos it would have been rad!!!
I think this version is very much on my wavelength!

The South Australian Heritage Icon - the Balfours frog cake.
I just drooled on my keyboard!
Personally, I think the green ones are the best and would never say no to the pink ones, but I'm not such a fan of the chocolate ones.
pic from here
At uni, I would be struck down with the biggest cravings and we would have to do frog cake runs - which is not the easiest thing to do as I'm pretty sure they are only made once a week and not all delis stock them, so it was sometimes a hit and miss affair.
These gorgeous paintings by Dianne Gall would solve my craving problem forever, in fact I think I would be on a permanent sugar high. If they were still available for sale, I would so be breaking into my piggy bank right now.
that's my kind of breakfast

I was at my folks' house the other day and came across this picture of a cake I made for my mum for mother's day when I was about 13.
I was so darn proud of it at the time, but now a look at it and think it would be perfect for the blog my brother recommended I peruse...
Speaks for itself really
An extremely Curious George

I don't shrink stuff and colours rarely run, but I often forget to check pockets. I now have numerous tops that have holes in them from when there have been screws and nails hidden in a pair of work trousers.
So, I keep my eye out for cute badges and brooches to cover them. At the moment, I like rosettes.
