Monday, Monday good to me, Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be. Three gorgeous people did three equally gorgeous things for me today - totally independent of each other, unasked for & very unexpected & in three different cities. I have finished the day with a huge case of the warm fuzzies. Kisses to K, J & P, if only you each knew how you lifted me up & sent my spirits soaring. You didn't have to, honestly you didn't, but I'm soooooooo glad you did!

A quick travel report from my week in Melbourne. The Metropole was AMAZING - please put it on your list of places to stay when next in the City of Millie's Many Sons. Slick, sophisticated, minimalistic, occasionally dark & brooding, with rooms big enough to hold an International Tango Workshop, I loved it & them some.

Then there was Spice Temple, oh my goodness what a night we had. A stellar, stellar meal, with impeccable yet relaxed & friendly service - my little tootsies still curl up deliciously at the memories. And my favourite indulgence, Billecart by the glass (or 3), Neil Perry & the Rockpool group, 5 Millie stars you legends!

MOTH's off to Dog Grooming class & he's taken puppy Lulu to practice on tonight. He's had 5 classes now & has had a ball, even though he's the only bloke. He's under strict instructions to trim not clip Lulu's shaggy coat. I just hope his mind hasn't wandered during the theory lessons, & that puppy arrives home still recognizable. Off to pray to the Patron Saint of Dog Groomers for a miracle.

  1. I hear you, I love our Lulu fluffy and shaggy and not looking poodly with a big fluffy head. Lets hope MOTH does not get distracted.

  2. Mouth watering stuff from your travels Millie and so pleased that there was some icing on the cake so to speak in some heart-warming surprises from friends.

    As for MOTH, please make sure LuLu is looking her best kind sir, I have a little something I'd like her to be part of tomorrow.


  3. Don't you just love great surprises...good friends are the best!! Love hearing about your wonderful travels...


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
