I love this dome. There’s so much going on – roses, stars, boots and armadillos. If I had enough energy, I’d look up the meaning behind all these Texan icons, but the Christmas/birthday celebrations have left me a little exhausted! Hope you survived the eating-fest.
And the celebrations continue, happy birthday Ron!

When I was young, my friends nicknamed me Kermit. To be honest, I’m not really sure why; I’m not green or lanky and my rendition of Rainbow Connection isn’t too good. So I laughed heartily when Lea gave me this handmade dome – would you believe she actually had a pottery specialist make the little figurine she calls ‘Kermia’. It’s definitely a unique dome. Thanks Lea, I love it!
Merry Christmas all! And I hope you’ll shake a dome to celebrate my birthday!

It was a good year for Chinese domes, mainly due to my Drinking Buddy becoming head legal counsel for Asia Pacific. Thanks Jess.
Clink those glasses to the end of the work year, bottoms up! We deserve it!

What an awesome time of year. While the festivities begin, all the birthday domes start rollin’ in! Check out this fun that also includes a reindeer stamp. Time to stamp our work exit passes – one day left. YAY!

In the middle of nowhere, on a freeway in northern NSW, there’s a place called the Macadamia Castle. As you would expect, you can play mini-golf there (??) and buy little knick-knacks like this frog-celebrating dome. Nothing seems to make sense in this strange kitsch place!

What sort of summer is this? You know the storms are bad when you come home and the cat is like a slow moving rug – he’s so scared he creeps low to the ground. We need a bit of Gold Coast sun!

Aromatic smoked duck, melt-in-your-mouth braised beef and heavenly mango prawns. The celebrations toward Christmas are just as good as the day itself. Thanks for the amazing meal Von and Andy!
