Introduction
Greetings! I live in Melbourne, Australia and am a dabbler in steampunk. Work, toddler and commuting take up most of my time, but in those quiet moments when I can relax I am soaring away in a spiffy airship dreaming of when I can drink champagne and wear corsets again. Happy to announce that little steamling number 2 arrived early but safely on April 12.

Oh of course, nothing offensive was taken from it, the comment caused me to smile. I am sincerely sorry I did not return a reply. I remember parts of Uni, I spent more time killing braincells than attempting to add to their development.....

Little tackers, Reception (foundation, or what ever you call it up there) to year 2. Tho, happy day! We finally have enough kids that our classes are splitting, and I get year 2's and 3's for the rest of the year. Finally I can teach something that requires a semblence of intelligence to understand. As opposed to spending most of my day saying "this is the letter a. What is it? A. It is in words like ant and apple, and Alice. What is it then?"  Response... "Ummm, t?"

Another teacher to boot! It gets better and better. School or otherwise? I am sneaking off for the weekend, and will try to get all my lessons for the next week done on the plane or something!

Thankyou, dear madam, for the offer of friendship. 

Will I perchance get to meet yourself at the upcoming Steamfest in Ipswich?

Saluton, estimata Doktorino, el Seatle in Usono! Plaĉas al mi, ke vi amikiĝis min. Duople, ĉar mi ja vidas ke vi estas ankoraŭ Vaporpunka Esperantisto.

Steampunk café - Melbourne, Australia.

A fantastic café opened recently near my workplace. I must say I'm enjoying my work coffee meetings immensely since they opened!

Apologies for the poor quality photographs. The camera on my phone is not the best.…

Steam up your mobile phone

Posted on December 11, 2012 at 3:21pm 3 Comments

I just saw this at Think Geek. It plugs into any mobile phone with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Oh dear lordy I want this so much! I don't care that it will take up half of my handbag and the cord will get tangled with my other stuff. It is GLORIOUS!…

It's free to sign up and you get free coins in their newsletter, which you can use to buy outfits. There are free outfits you can start off with until you gather some coins. You can also design your own background... with or without TARDIS.

Recent tea-related purchases

Posted on June 18, 2010 at 8:10pm 2 Comments

I recently bought a couple of tea-related products on eBay.


The first was a chance find. It took me a while to find out that it's called a 'tea urn'. Very pretty. It needs a new brass pin to keep the lid on, though, so I haven't tested it yet.








The other…
