Today’s Lunch

Good Mental Health Day

And here we are again and after a long but broken weekend. Friday was a public holiday and Sunday I had a day out, as in I did full Person. I’ve been trying to get to the NGV to see the MoMa exhibition for months and I have the books (my art book library has been building for about 25+ years) and the fridge magnets and I finally got to see the exhibition.

I confess, after all my effort to get there I spent longer posing for my photo to be taken then I did actually looking at Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe and Roy Lichtenstein.

I even told my companions for the ad entire no matter what I’m not allowed to buy a print. I still am yet to hang anything g in my apartment as I need to install picture rails and I’m yet to get everything framed I bought from my overseas adventure back in 1994. Guess I’m yet to write about that bit of a Cinderella story with a very unfulfilling ending so far.


And today’s offering? While I almost didn’t make it today. I considered a kip & staying local I feel I’ve neglected my favourite things, places and people. So, here we are, Pancetta quiche with the side salad and standard medicine.

Everyone relax! I think I’ve discovered the method of solving the Greek economic problem. No really, hear me out, I’ve only traveled overseas once and that was 100 years ago, in 1994. I loved it. Admittedly I didn’t pay for the flights and it was a bit of a Cinderella story.


And yes, it ended in tears and heartbreak, mine. But still, I sent many, many postcards in the three months I was away and because I don’t get to travel or holiday, I confess I love a Postcard!

My request for a postcard from friends and family who have the luxury or the cash to travel usually falls on deaf ears and when I get one I’m so chuffed…

Postcard 1

A friend recently had a six-week adventure in Europe and I asked for a postcard, I even pushed for a postcard from every capital city she visited.

I know, I offered her a cheeky smile and a snort. She did post me a postcard from Greece and she told me how hard it was to find a post box.

She’s been back a month now and still no postcard.

Last week I went to my appointment with her and reported still no postcard and then I announced “Oh my God! I’ve just solved the Greek Financial Crisis”

Greek tragedy

They should create jobs in the postal industry.

Reboot postcards and bring them back to former glory.

Your welcome!

Where’s my damn Postcards???
