So sorry for my absence chickadees, but our wily plan to have internet access in our hotel room in Melbourne without the exorbitant fees, was made of fail ; (

It didn’t quite go as planned and I ended up having to do the bottom myself, after major dramas saw me with Gaga-yellow hair which had to be stripped out again!

I also mentioned I’d be visiting the lovely VioletLebeaux and Jimmy America in their swanky new apartment – well, here’s the piccage! (Thanks Jimmy for taking the photos – check out his blog for photography how-to’s and tips).
But then it was time for the main event – afternoon tea. There was a trifle-like concoction made of macarons which hadn’t passed their quality standard test, so they were squished between layers of custard and chocolate.
And I learned something I didn’t know before – Jimmy bakes! He made some adorable heart-shaped scones, with jam and cream!! It took me right back to England – I was in Devon last July/August and had the best Devonshire tea there (or Cream Tea as they themselves call it). Look at them! Aww…
