Things delightful and delicious

Listening to the news this morning I heard Dr Karl talking about the "portals of forgetfulness".  A wonderful phrase and one I latched onto straight away.  He was talking about how humans long ago learned to discard knowledge they no longer needed, and how today it's often experienced when you head off somewhere to do something, get half way there and can't recall what it was you were doing!

Have another photo shoot tomorrow night so baked this delicious looking cake as bribery. It's just come out of the oven - it could be a total disaster, but hopefully not and hopefully it looks something like this.

This week's op shop prizes

This week's stop at the local op shop rewarded with these gorgeous dishes.  Unfortunately, the plate has a large side to side crack which will probably see its demise before too long.  Never mind - enjoy while we can! Except that it seems wrong to fill them with goodies and hide their prettiness.
