Lunch with a French Twist

Today I had a lovely lunch out with my stitching friends at a nice little cafe/bistro at Bulimba which is a riverside suburb on the southside of Brisbane. It is full of lovely cafes and interesting shops.
Called the "French Twist" this little cafe also had a lovely selection of breads and pastries. I had a delicious open sandwich and a yummy vanilla slice for dessert ( I am very partial to those). You will have to take my word for it because horror of horrors I forgot my camera. I must be a 'real' blogger becasue I felt so strange without it. The girls and I spent so many years catering to the needs of school children, family life and work comittments we decided now that a lot of that is behind us we would sample the lovely cafes and shops around our lovely city from time to time together. It has been so much fun discovering these places (no thanks to me I can tell you) These young lasses have taught me so much.
I now have to break the news to my other half that I couldn't eat another thing for at least 12 hours and what are his plans for dinner??? I know what the answer will be..."whatever you want to cook"
I just want to share a little cartoon my daughter sent to me. You see in my family I get a lot of teasing about my 'hippie' ways and never more so than when I did my Reiki training. Such things as "that woo woo stuff you do" or " what is it supposed to do" but they do line up for the hands on treatment when they have a headache or a cold or sore back. Lol! Especially my other half.
I take it all in my stride with a smile and I have to admit this little cartoon did make me laugh.....
My husband just advised me he had 3 different kinds of rakes downstairs...very funny!
Blessings Michelle xx
