Isn't this chap darling? Bought him in an Antique shop a few years ago, used him twice then worried he would break so he is stuck in the cupboard and brought out on special occasions now!
The Tea House tea pot, dribbles a bit really and not used much. Good for Lap Sang Soochong tho'.
And here we have Cinderalla's Pot. This one reminds me of Cinders coach; the spout broke last year and after we glued it back together I decided it was a bit fragile so she is only a "display" pot now.
Today would have been my Dad's 75th birthday - if cancer hadn't claimed him 13 years ago. Every year I try and imagine how he would look now, the things we would have joked about. My Dad and I were very close. I REALLY miss him.
I took this photo at Sumner Beach this week. School holidays here so I took 3 days off work; my cousin (who is Head of Music at Dulwich College in Shanghai) was visiting me as well. Haven't seen her for about 6 years and we are each others only female cousin so it was a wonderful catch up. She's cool.
Anyway, I have been watching the second episode of TORCHWOOD. I'm still not sure if I like it enough to keep watching, it on late here - 10.30pm. And I'm also not sure if I will blog about it - this has been done by bloggers a damn sight better than me. So far, it has been good to see John Barrowman doing his thing (as it were) but the Gwen character I find irritating. No idea why, but she does. I think its her wide eyes and "newby" status. Plus her cleavage ain't much. This week however we were treated to Mr Barrowman giving a life saving kiss to another irritating character - this scene I thoroughly enjoyed. He was sooo cheeky, loved it. He also reminds me of my dear friend Alex from Sydney....
Weather is wintery here, fog bound today with rain. Snow maybe next week - hoorah!
