#photoadayjuly 29 last thing you bought

Does anyone else love this milk?
Most of the time we buy a2, but when I can't get it (for example when we run out, and I walk across the road to our 'friendly grocer' (no really, that's the actual name of the store :) instead of taking a 10 minute drive, just to get milk- plus I like the excuse to get the kids and go for a walk!), then this is the next best stuff, plus the farm is just down the road (well about 15 minutes away), so I feel it's good community spirit.

Do you guys support local families in business in your area, do you go to your local butcher, fruit store, etc...I do.

Or is it just easier to get it all in one place? (even though the quality is blergkth)

Or...

Do you like to go to the markets and get fresh organic stuff on the weekend (I did last weekend, and YUM! I suppose it helped I was there, and the guys next to me were selling organic veggies!)

#photoadayjuly 22 upside down

This is taken from inside the tomb of the unknown soldier, we were told by one of the most knowledgeable volunteers at the war memorial, that the mosaic (which just happens to be the whole of the inside from the walls up) was a collaborative effort between the artists design, and war widows who placed each and every tile in its place.

This particular section symbolises the asention of their souls.

Quite moving.

It still brings tears to my eyes when I think about it, I think too much.

Have you been to the war memorial?

Do you have a memorial local to you?

Please share, I'd really love to see.

#photoadayjuly 19 animal/insect/pet

Iconicly Australian!
On our way to our first fishing trip together we stopped at Mogo Zoo, it is only a little zoo, and I think it is still privately run because they have local businesses sponsor different animals throughout, which I kinda like.

This sweet  little joey was happy to take feed out of your hand and enjoyed a good scratch behind the ears.

Do you remember your first trip to the zoo, was it a little one? Or maybe you went to one (Taronga)  in the city like we did as kids.

Where did you go, oh how I'd love to know.

#photoadayjuly 17 - your addiction

How about some 'Choc-nilla cara-licious'??
Back before diagnosis, I enjoyed a timtam like the best of us, but seriously it has been about 10 years, so when I pulled together this one (it's sort of my answer to the timtam requests I keep getting), I remembered why I enjoyed a them so long ago.

It's nice to have a cookie or bikki with crunch and chew, and sweet vanilla bean buttercream, decedant dark chocolate and that caralicious drizzle on top just completes the picture.

My next challenge is to make this a dairy free cookie too, shouldn't be too hard, I'm off to ponder how to! Just for you hermana...

Have you missed your timtams, or what is it you miss? Or do you have an addiction?

Hi everybody, my name is twolicious and I'm addicted to.....sugar :(
