Watch your step for the Echidna Love Trains.

 
No staunch horse....got a mother-in-law who's best angle is seen through the shafts of a dray, though....

It's also Chocolate Pudding Day....yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Celebrate by baking some of these delicious self-saucing choccy pudds.
Psst!
It's only breaking the diet if you lick the mixing bowl and beaters, ok?

 
What is a staircase hand, please?

1860 Stuart got attacked by Aboriginals so the big jessie turned on his heel from trying to cross the isle of Oz from South to North and went back to where he came from.

No they didn't. I had to squint.

So a dray is a wagon but what's a Sydney box dray... in 10 words or less.

Jayne said...

A dray was more a flat cart with little or no sides.
A Sydney Box Dray has sides to enclose the dray/cart.

Butter is never an option. It's a necessity. Heating it along with the honey makes the body slathering so much easier.

Jayne said...

Now you're just trying to make me hurt my brain, B and Anja :P

Excellent, River, I'll get some in for when Hugh drapes himself over my toast ;)

ELIZABETH said...

All in now clear.
