Designs in the key of yellow

As the southern hemisphere spring kicks in, the air warms up and the magpies swoop, I’m enjoying these little rays of sunshine…

Yellow stripe oilcloth – a little bit of 1980’s Giorgio Beverly Hills – this table-cloth is the first line of defence in the ongoing saga of Toddler with Texta vs Table.  (Toddler held scoreless since application of tablecloth. Hah).

Bottled sunshine – I got busy with some gleaned (well, they weren’t being used at the time) lemons and preserved them to add some kick to future Moroccan lamb curries. (I also got busy with Photoshop and made the orange look a bit radioactive).

I unearthed this little porcine squirt of citrus on etsy.com at fruitflypie. Adore.

In an ideal world my three little monkeys would wear these fabulous little eco-cool booties whilst skipping around our self sufficient organic farm.  Back in the real world, they wouldn’t look so zesty after the daily grind of urban dirt/mud/sea water/spilled foodstuffs that my monkies would throw at them.

What a delicious combination of giraffe with sharp citrus notes.  I’ll hold down the giraffe, you skin it.

When life hands you lemons, make a Gin and Tonic.  Or when concerned about malaria.  But please, only with Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray. And only Schweppes tonic.  And none of your dodgy lo-cal weird tasting tonics either, go the full fat.

    Couldn’t agree more re the brand of gin and in seconds of the first sip I know if someone’s polluted it with the diet stuff. Mmm, would love a G&T now! Love the oil cloth, we have one too, good ole spotlight.
