Oh no!

One of the problems with amassing a stash of china is you have to keep it stored somewhere safe, and most importantly, don’t drop it.

Oh well, I still have a heap more stashed away, and if i clean up the broken handle, this dish can be used as a lolly holder

International TOF

My search for pieces for my dinner setting has gone international.

I used to sit and look at the pieces on international ebay sites and drool, but when the Australian Dollar reached parity and beyond with US dollar, the price of getting these pieces became much cheaper, so I figured, "why not".
So i have had several weeks of fun on US and UK Ebay site, and i now have several years worth of presents for my mother.

Oh, and a few bits for myself too.

Taph and I are preparing to jump the ditch and head over to New Zealand for a holiday.

The Rugby World Cup may also be happening while we are there, so we are catching a few games.

These we will see in-between enabling Taphs fibre habit, sampling the regions whiskeys, wines and chocolates. And of course, doing some skiing.

However when I heard The William Webb Ellis Trophy was coming to Yass (a country town near Canberra) I figured it was worth the trip.
