On my recent trip to Canberra, I visited the National Film and Sound Archive …. you can find them on Facebook here …… to check it out and just have a look around. As you all know, I love all things Aussie on TV and at the movies so this was the perfect place to spend some time learning more about our history in both areas.
There are some wonderful exhibits and I had a great time wandering down memory lane. There is a reference library but I didn’t go in because I had no real reason to but mostly because I thought if I started reading, I may never leave.
A few weeks ago I got chatting with this lovely guy and he tells me he works for a coffee company. An Aussie coffee company YAY. As I let the envy subside, I told him I was a blogger…..movie reviews but I review other stuff as well. He said I should look them up ….
So I did…..
After a few facebook inboxes and an email or two, the most divinely aromatic package arrived on my doorstep. Now I love coffee. I mean I LOOOOOOOOOOVE coffee. Ohhhhh yes, this was going to be a real treat.
My friends at The Hunter Woman are holding a fundraiser next Thursday night, July 25, to reunite a family. The story behind this fundraiser is as inspiring as it is heartbreaking
The night is being held for the Africa Australia Alliance for Peace and Reconciliation and as well as enjoying some great company and nibbly things, the main event is undoubtedly the silent auction. There are some amazing items up for auction.
So please visit The Hunter Woman here to buy tickets, show support or even donate.
A simple request from a mother for her little one to eat his dinner resulted in a lesson for all of us. I may not cease my non vegetarian eating habits but it does make you stop and think when the truth is seen through the eyes of a child.
Somebody PLEASE stop me from visiting this store……. I spend a fortune each time I cross the threshold. My family has been shown exactly which teapot and cup and saucer set I want for Mother’s Day. I can’t find a picture online otherwise I would share 😉
This week’s obsession? Strawberries and Cream…
I use this gadget to brew at home….
I will have to go back in during the week to get a pic of my cup and saucer set.
