Meet …greet… and eat


Well everyone today was a big day..Phil and i headed off to Melbourne for my appointment with the rheumy..who was lovely and all of ten years old..but she knows her stuff so i felt quite happy with her and confident she has the latest in autoimmune diseases.
So we left home at 7am ..took 2 hours of painful traffic..had my appointment..had my bloods stolen..and left.
We headed to see our little girl (yes 29 and still my little girl) had a coffee and a chat and dang forgot to grab some figs that were growing like crazy in her backyard!

We then headed off to Lygon Street..home of little Italy and cakes cakes cakes…yes..

And who did we meet up with?

Well we had our little guest with us..we stalled his departure until tomorrow as we KNEW he had to say a quick G’Day to this special person…

Yes Bashful got to have a reunion and we got to have a face to face with the lovely Sharon or as Bacon calls her Aunty Sharon from Gentle stitches

Aren't we cute :)

Aren’t we cute πŸ™‚

Bashful was so excited to see Aunty Sharon..the last time he saw her they headed to Japan!..seems when Bashful comes to Australia he takes mini trips within his trip hahaa πŸ™‚

You want those cakes don't you!

The coffees were great and it was so nice to have an actual face to face ..when it was time to go we said our farewells and will catch up soon at my place as i have a spinning wheel to give to Sharon as i know it will have a good home and be given the workout it deserves! i also have three bags full (yes a nursery rhyme) of fresh wool for her..so i am happy that this will be used too πŸ™‚

Sharon gave me a gorgeous little blue heart she had made because i had been in the hospital..it sits with the Simba she made me ..

Gorgeous :)

Cakes everywhere...and this is not even the whole shop!

  1. Oh…those cannoli! That’s the only thing about having to go to the big city for treatment, there’s always fantastic food! Glad Bashful got to enjoy the day with you.

  4. So glad to hear you like your rheumy doc……let’s hope she can get you ALL FIXED UP in short order! What a great treat that shop is – the pastries look DIVINE – I’m drooling on my keyboard…….I’m absolutely a sucker for artfully decorated goodies like that but alas we have no “real” bakery here in my little town. Nice to see Sharon in the flesh too!!! I SOOOOO admire her considerable talents with crochet – her work makes me smile. You two must have had a grand time visiting (and eating).

    Hugs, Pam

  11. Oh my gosh, yum!!! I’m glad you got a nice (or several nice) treats after having to go to the doctor, and had a good day visiting with your friend.
    I hope this doctor will be a help to you. I think that sometimes younger doctors are a bit more up to date on the current treatments for diseases…hopefully she will have something new to help you. xxoo

    • Jan thankyou..it was delish indeed! and i agre i think the specialists in their private suites get a bit blase at times..and are all about the fees,.the young ones are super keen to make a difference! i am sure she said cakes were part of the cure πŸ˜‰ xxxxx
