S.O.S. from the patch

I'm sending out an S.O.S. from the patch. Since I left a couple of months ago, things have gotten out of control. Namely, the caretaker did a terrible job of keeping the enemies at bay.

Life lesson 9: mussels,champagne and red rooster

Life lesson number 9

If you sometimes get a little bit out of control and suddenly think it's a good idea to have half a kg of mussels for lunch with accompanying ciders (read:plural), champagne and charcuterie for afternoon tea and then red rooster for dinner- its not. Ever. You'll end up with a headache, a ridiculously blown up belly and regrets to boot.

The solution: stop being a little piggy/monster.

If this isn't likely..

No seriously, this is an intervention. you need to stop.

You're welcome.

Life lesson 8: Walnut brownies and misleading/misreading maps

Life Lesson number 8

When deciding to walk home from a Sunday morning market adventure, it's best not to eat a brownie whilst you are walking, as you can become so enamoured with the brownie and thinking about other things that you forget where you are and where you are going to.

Life lesson 7: There is such a thing as too much gravy

Life Lesson 7: When buying a sweet wood fired pork roll, you do not need to be a greedy guts and ask for 'more gravy please because I love it so much.' This then renders the roll 'unpickupable'. It is rather lame/embarrassing to sit by yourself, picking at the gravied remnants of the roll because it is simply too soggy to eat properly, as you will have already discovered and is evidenced by the lumps of roll all over your pants.

Life lesson no 6: movies on a Monday

Life lesson number 6:
When waiting around for the Monday night movie premiere of TED, don't let the beach shack lure you in with their happening 90's tunes. Inevitably, you will end up having a scotch or two or maybe even a gin and tonic and it's imperative you don't have any liquid in your bladder for this film. You may wet yourself laughing.

Life lesson 5 : Decadent chocolate desserts and bad dreams

Perhaps you would like to take heed of some life lessons, that I learnt the hard way, so that you don't have to.
Life lesson no 5: No matter how tempting it is to devour a whole dark chocolate, stomach-achingly decadent dessert after a full weekend of eating and drinking many other treats, don't.
