Back to civilised society...

...and I miss camping already. I always get the Cape C----- blues whenever I'm not there. Often when I am out walking and happen to notice the coolness of the breeze, or the warm colour of the afternoon sun I get a rush through my solar plexus (how unsoppy of me -- I should say heart) and wonder how the beach looks at that same time, 390 km away.

Aaaaaah!! I can't do this anymore! My mood has just totally broken!! Too busy lol'ing over THIS! Thanks, Michi Girl.

Here are some pix of some friends we made while camping, and I will wax lyrical about Cape C gain soon, with some more pix.

Spreading the love...

Happy Valentine's Day to all.

I am off for a week to get down'n'dirty with this magnificent land -- camping on the coast, near Croajingolong NP. No power, only cold undrinkable running water, and flush toilets being the only luxury. Love it.

I bloody hate it when people selling stuff on Ebay describe anything and everything as "Art Deco"!!!!! Aaaaaarrrrggghhhh!!!!

I bloody hate it when people spell "chaise longue" as "chaise lounge", "Wedgwood" as "Wedgewood" and "Bakelite" as "Bakerlite".

I'm sure someone reading this will bloody hate my wanky snobbishness, let alone my imperfect grammar.

Feel free to slap me about.

Illustration Friday: Blanket

She needs one (although it seems she is quite happy regardless).

A hand-carved eraser stamp (Versa Color ink in Hyacinth and Indigo).

Next week I will use the colours pale mustard, lilac, ivory and black.

Beautiful Music

I've been listening in bliss to Mattafix.

Here is the clip to "Living Darfur." Behold the angelic voice of Marlon Roudette (I thought it was a woman singing before I delved deeper).

And my favourite song at the moment -- can't get enough of "Got to Lose."
