Sorry for my absence, I’ve been stuck in traffic. More specifically, behind THIS fucker:
I think the part that gets me the most is that this is the sort of person who drives inconsiderately – sitting miles below the speed limit in the right hand lane – then complains about the aggressiveness of other drivers. I mean, have you SEEN Australia drivers? They will take you out without a second look, then reverse blithely over your shattered hatchback. I sense doom approaching for this self-righteous letter writer (or is that a tautology?)
In other news, I am slowly building my photo reserves back up:
I took this photo to send to my nana, as when I was home at Easter she wanted my sister and I to take whatever we wanted out of her china cabinet. She has moved into a rest home and has no room for her things. So on my kitchen windowsill last week were both the hand-etched measuring beaker (in pints! no she can’t remember who made this or what it was used for!) and a little blue faceted glass jar. The dead looking vine out the window is the grapevine, which was really pretty in summer and autumn. A surprising amount of plants have survived our benign neglect over the few months we’ve owned this house… although I think lavender and grapevines are both pretty hard to kill? That’s what we’re banking on anyway. I would say ‘send rain’, but we have heaps. Thanks.
