Happy Easter everyone! I am currently eating my way through various types of chocolate eggs, which Easter Bunny kindly left for me.

Yes, Easter Bunny still visits me. Just because am in my late thirties does not mean I can’t have Easter Bunny come and see me.

Soon Mr Thomas and I will be off to Mama and Papa Thomas’s, where we will be fed a full-blown Italian Easter lunch. I am very excited by it.

For me, Easter is much like Christmas: it’s all about food and family. So I hope you all have a lovely weekend eating good food and spending time with family. Love you all, and look out for another instalment of Almost Drank the Kool-Aid later today.


With 45 Notes of London coming out in the next few weeks (!!!) I thought I would introduce you to the lead character.

Her name is Harriet Small, known as Harry. The ’45 notes’ are written by her; observations on the city of London and her time there.

In the lead-up to the release of 45 Notes, I thought I’d share some Harry-isms with you. Today we’ll be looking at Harry’s opinion on Cash Converters:

Woken up in middle of night with crash banging sounds. Thought — right, we’re getting broken into. Went for hammer under bed and there was no hammer under bed. Not at home! Fright! But then thought — this is London. Fancy part of London, no less. Am sure criminals are a lot more respectable. Classier. Not just entering home because suspect you have a marijuana crop. Or just coming in to nick something — anything — to sell in order to satisfy meth habit.

No. These criminals would be high-class, looking to steal more than just your Xbox and flat screen TV to sell at Cash Converters. Criminals here would be looking for actual jewellery and not gaudy gold items, probably bought originally at Cash Converters.

(Now when I think about it, there is probably just a handful of jewellery in Adelaide’s northern suburbs but is doing the rounds like library books. Is bought from said Cash Converters: ‘nice. I like how the necklace looks like an actual piece of rope.’ Stolen from a house and then sold to Cash Converters again. Employees are like: ‘that gold rope necklace is back again. How much did we sell it for last time?’

No wonder they are known in local areas as Crime Converters.)

Shout out to @strangecodex for this wonderful London imagery. During the 45 Notes promos I’ll be using all of his images. His work is amazing. You can check out his work on flicker here.




Hi Folks! So much is about to happen here on and I am super, super excited!

I’ve been a little busy worker bee preparing everything and I hope all of you will be along for the ride.

It’s going to be a month of excitement stretching right through to the new year so if you haven’t all ready, make sure you subscribe to my blog so you’re the first to know.

For those of you who have been with me from the beginning (you know who you are) I’m so glad to have you along on this journey. I know what’s coming up is something you’ve wanted for a long time.

So spread the love my friends, and I’ll see you back here real soon with me news. Hopefully soon. I’ve actually got a few things to finish up and am off to the cricket right now which takes an entire day so looks like I’ll be working into the night again.

Love you all!!

You may be the
bees knees.
Swan about with all
your swoons
display them brightly
by the moon
to disappear will be too soon.

You have a head
that’s full of ego
bright, bearded, flowered fellow
can you see I’m dressed in yellow?
I should have just worn red
that’s the colour of our blood;

Brighten your mood
with others about
spread them ‘round,
they are on show
pretty girls
that you’ll always know
pick which one you want to grow.

She will be your potted flower
water and tend to her greatest power
yet should weeds come along
and ruin her flower…
there will be many more
to choose, but they are
the ones that you will lose.
