marvellous monday

here’s why:

opening all the doors and windows and tidying my house while spinning good vinyl
leisurely brunch at Palomino with a dear friend
an hour with my aunt
yellow gerberas
a conversation about mr men books on the train home with a complete stranger*
getting some sweet emails and texts from kj
dinner and cheekiness at The Union

* my favourite mr men book is mr. happy. I really loved these as a kid, and still have loads of them. The wall poster, big books and ruler have long since vanished…

    Mr Dizzy is where it’s at. That was always my favourite, and the first one I bought for my kids.

    Hi spunkerella,

    You know Herve, who used to work at pfoods?
    When he left, I bought him a copy of papillon, because he’d never read it and it was one of my favourite books as a teenager. I also bought him a copy of Mr Grumpy, for a laugh; he was once notoriously cranky, which many people found obnoxious and I found totally endearing. There’s something so honest about someone being in a bad mood if their life is actually really difficult.
    Back in Melbourne today. Paradise is lost, for now.

    Mr Tickle, with his extraordinary long arms…
    And the amazing egg-fuelled Mr Strong who could lift upside down barns full of water but broke his toothbrush every morning!

  4. Paul: they are all wonderful books. i relate most to mr. happy because i love to spread a little humour and love around – just like he did with mr. miserable.

  5. kj: hey babe – how could anyone not have read papillion? you’re so right – a certain style of grumpiness is tres endearing…
    Don’t fret, paradise is not lost – it is yours to create when you move house!

  6. Michelle: yep, mr. tickle was almost my fave – the guy who can lie in bed, feel hungry, and get his arms to go downstairs, open the biscuit barrel, get snacks, and go back upstairs? a true legend. other legends are mr. silly, mr. impossible, and mr. daydream, imho.

    Got to get me some of those Mr Tickle arms. Surely they’ve got to come in handy sooner of later. 🙂

  8. Joffa: yeh, the mischief you’d get up to with those 😉
