Tea anyone?

Thought I'd share with you another reason I love Aldi.
A cute Tetley tea tin for only $4.99.

Love the message on it.
It came with teabags and now sits proudly in my kitchen.
It's a wintery rainy Sunday morning in nearby Sydney Town,
 the perfect start to my day, a cup of tea, of course!..xx

The Twenty-Fifth Of April

The Twenty-Fifth Of April

THIS day is Anzac Day!
Made sacred by the memory
Of those who fought and died, and fought and live,
And gave the best that men may give
For love of Land. It dawns once more,
And, though on alien sea and shore
The guns are silent all,
Yet we with pride recall
The deeds which gave it immortality.
Great deeds are deathless things!
The doer dies, but not the deed,
And, when upon that fateful April day
Our Anzacs, throwing all but love away,
Gave life and limb for Honour's sake,
With Freedom tremblingly at stake,
They lit a beacon-light
Imperishable, bright,
That evermore the Nation's soul shall heed.
Not Peace, not Peace alone
Can make a nation great and good
And bring it that full stature, strength, and grace
That fit it for an age-enduring place
In men's regard. Through storm and strife
It runs to sweet and noble life;
For through its veins there runs
The valour of great sons
Who died to give it stately nationhood.
This day is Anzac Day!
Made sacred by the thrilling thought
Of those who proved their souls, it reappears;
And thus 'twill dawn, and dawn through future years
Till Time our petty deeds efface,
And others, dwelling in our place,
Tell o'er, with tongue and pen,
The glorious tale again
Of how on beach and crag the Anzacs fought.

Autumn in Sydney

Today was a perfect Autumn day in Sydney.
A sunny 21 degrees celcius and perfect to visit a market.
We took a trip to the inner city suburbs of Rozelle and Balmain and checked out the Rozelle markets.

I was in heaven.
Vintage clothing,jewellery,homewares,collectables,fresh food and so much more.

I purchased some lovely vintage clothes and a sweet necklace.
My son got a fab Ralph Lauren coat for a crazy $25.......
Had lunch outside at a great cafe, then visited the Exchange Hotel in Balmain for a cool drink.
Gorgeous interior,Old world meets parisian glamour..Loved it..

I would definetly recommend a visit to these markets, 

especially on a perfect Sydney Autumn day..xx

Thinking about Wellies..

It's getting cooler in my part of th e world and it's been quite wet lately.
I'm still trying to sort out my front garden so Wellies (rainboots)have come to mind.
I have a very sad red faded polka dot pair of wellies and they are destined to be gone.
I got to thinking, Mothers Day is just around the corner and I would be so happy to get a new pair of GLAM boots to trudge through the garden with.
Just thought I'd throw a few ideas out there,just incase anyone needed a little help in thinking of what to get their wonderful mum..xx
