Thank you all soooo much for your kind thoughts about boy cat. I hope he is sitting on a cushion up in cat heaven marveling at how many sweet aunties he has all over the world who love him. It was heartwarming to hear from all of you!
I found this book on my way in today at one of those remainder book sales and I treated myself to it. The pictures are just gorgeous in the way that many Australian food / decor mags can be, and all the comfort food recipes seemed just what I needed. It never helps buying these things while being actually hungrey though, every page makes my stomach rumble. mm! I crave garlicky toasted breads, creamy goat's cheeses, tomates, pesto, pasta and mozzerella...Instead I am meeting my brother and Paul for Vietnamese after work. We have a great place near home. My brother is visiting from England for 12 days and the timing could not be better. I am never happier than when I have my family in my home and even if mum is not here as well, at least I know she is in Canada too. She continues her downsizing before moving to a smaller place and we may drive out on the weekend to haul back a bed, a cozy chair and various other bits and pieces.
