Morning Tea.

To kick start the morning slump,
lashes of crimson,
a sprinkle of pink,
a dollop of paisley
a generous spoonful 
of embroidery.

Wandering Food Memories.I.

Since returning from my brief stint as an Australian student in the Netherlands it has become a favourite past time of mine to sit here trawling through my posts from overseas.

It was a time of many firsts, my first blog posts, my first tastes of Europe, my first time living out of home.

And it was a time of complete freedom, freedom of no boundaries, no borders. Feeling like a trip to London next weekend? Sure thing, sister! It's only a few hours away by train!

To celebrate and commiserate I'll be reliving my time overseas through all the food I've consumed along the way. A little bit of Europe that will be with me always. Well, almost.

From a beach side Italian restaurant with mama & papa in the kitchen & the son at the tables, to one of my first breakfasts in my student dorm in the Maastriicht, the Netherlands (market bought fresh bread & huge eggs), to a London pub grub lunch of burgers, house made relish & crumbed gherkins.

It's the simple things in life.

Mid-night feast.

When it gets to a certain time at night, 
well early morning,
 and you're still assessment-ing away you learn to give up.

Bed ain't coming any time soon, 
so why not make it worth it and divulge in 
a little feathers, a little brocade, a little fur,
a splash of red and a plop of plum,
wrapped up coats
jewelled up fingers.

Ahhhhh its well past a mid-night feast & now I'm

One of my favourite artists, 
I love how much you can see into these pieces.

She may say 'Tomato', 
I may say crazy, dancing, explosion.

I want something that wraps me up,
huge and over-sized and all yum.
