So, here in my birthday kitchen:
|who doesn't need a lobster ice cube tray? We all do, you sillies:)
Love my new ice cube tray. Thanks, Princess Pia. Many lobster-shaped ice cubes to come in our summer drinks at Christmas.
|cooooookies...as the cookie monster would say
Gotta love these delish biscuits - or cookies, as they insist on calling them. Maybe 'cos cookies sounds like such a cute word.
|a batch of my home made chutney
We have a couple of English friends who adore my mango chutney, and now that I have discovered frozen mango chunks at the store, I can now make it for them any time of year! Which I did, to their joy - she says modestly.
|yes, another little jug
Well guys, you know I'm a wee bit obsessed with little jugs, so here we have another one I bought recently at an antique centre. It says Woods Burslem 'Brier' on the bottom. This was an English pottery company, which finally ceased trading in 1995. I love its cute roundness - a bit like me, perhaps? :=)
|yay, I managed to get a bottle of this
Every year, I buy a bottle of this amazing oil, but I was put off this year due to the doubling of the postage to Queensland. What the?! Anyway, I waited and yes, finally they had a deal for free postage. Yippee! And yep that's my shoe in the foreground.
Oh yes, I had to get the Gromberry to oversee my kitchen, along with his mate the Gruffalo Gromit already doing his thing on my kitchen shelf. You can never have too many Gromits.
|my birthday gift from our potter friend
Brooke from Red Door Studio made me this gorgeous cake platter with a whale and the lighthouse representing my fave part of the world - Northern Rivers. Thanks Miss B.!
|bought this at the cooking class
At the end of the cooking class with Belinda Jeffery, (my fave cook/chef person) I bought this, her latest book. Can't wait to try out some of the recipes. Thanks for signing it, Belinda.
|another cute gift
This is actually just what I was looking for. I had been trying to find one of those Sid the Lid saucepan lifters, but hadn't got around to tracking it down. My friend (the one who sliced my finger) brought up this gift from her folks for my birthday. Yay!
So all up, June was a fabulous birthday month. I have felt very loved, and looked after. Someone said to me: 'Oh, you've been spoiled," but I don't like that expression. I feel like it has been a wonderful showing of love and caring. Lucky me indeed!
