what you wish for

I asked for spring.

And I got it…hayfever and all.

I asked for fresh green vegetables to eat straight from the garden.

And I got Brussels spouts.
A season too late but neither of us had any idea how they grew before.

Then last week I was at David Jones salivating over the bone china, as I do. I coveted some lovely little coffee cups in the Sarah’s Garden range.

I decided that I could not justify the expenditure (capitalism is on the brink of imploding, there is only so long I can live on baby Brussels sprouts).

Then on Saturday while en route to my lovely football-free lunch, I spied an older version of the cups in a junk shop. They have a green background with butterflies rather than the current blue, botanical style but they were sweet none the less.

And they came to me for the meagre price of $6 each.

With the spring goddess reining her gifts down upon on, what are you wishing for?

Somewhere to live and a job.

Is that too much, do you think?

Shula - not too much to wish for at all, actually very modest in the wishing department. Go for it!

I saw some retro villa and bosch chinaware in the acapulco range which really appealed to me - although I also would have to wish for a kitchen to fit all the kitcheware I covet!

Am wishing for Shula.

I've been lucky enough already this spring and would not want to push my luck.

Just some wind-free days to allow a few seedlings to take off and not dry out. Wishing for rain would be just completely out of the question.

those cups and saucers are divine. These are the kind of things that get me (very) excited these days.

I wish I could get out more, actually.

Therefore, I also wish to have brekkie with you AOF. Yes, indeed, I will email you.
