A bit of this and that...

As well as finishing off items for the various swaps that I had signed up for, I've been 'flitting' around as per usual :-)
DH and I tried out a local coffee shop that I've been wanting to try for a while because I love the clever name!

And we weren't disappointed!
A French theme here in suburban Mc Dowall...

These looked rather swish!
 And DH certainly enjoyed his chocolate muffin and mug of flat white; as I did my cappuccino...


Then last week, I made a return visit to Gallery B at Newmarket which has a lovely little coffee shop at the back of the Newmarket Hardware. This time I joined a fellow blogger, Jean for a morning coffee.

Jean and I both admired the beautiful china used by the cafe and we both loved this sugar bowl with its curved spoon...

Then just the other day, DH and I stopped at the coffee shop in our local shopping centre, before we tackled the grocery shopping...

While we were waiting for our coffees, it became obvious that I had left the shopping list at home...shopping without a list can be 'lethal'! So....

While we drank our coffees, I started to rewrite the list from memory...as it turns out I only forgot 1 item...some AA batteries for a toy I had bought our great nephew...so the 'old brain' is still working fairly well even though I forgot to take the list! lol

I missed out on the Sisters of Stitch Christmas party last Wednesday as DH and I had tickets to the matinee show at  QPAC, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.


It was a very enjoyable show; everything about it was great. We left the theatre with that uplifted feeling you get when you've seen a fun show with excellent acting, singing, staging and a happy ending!
And I took this photo out of the window near the Door where we were to enter the theatre. It's looking out over the river towards the city.

And one last photo of something completely unrelated...I was stopped at the lights today on Musgrave Rd, Red Hill and was behind this learner driver...in a porsche!


I guess, if it's the only car the family has? And you have to get those logged hours of driving done...?
It just piqued my interest and the incongruity of it.

LOts of nice coffee stops.
Funny how we can usually remember what's on the list once we have done it the first time...usually
I'm with you about the porsche . . .

I know what it is like to forget lists too! Well done on remembering and adding more to it! Love the coffee shop sign too!

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who can't survive without a list.
