Shake 637: Mazia

January 21, 2012

Mosweg, Tasmania (Australia), January 2012

How gorgeous is the paving?

Happy new Year of the Dragon! It’s been a while huh? I have to admit that I had the odd moment of panic here and there before realising I don’t need to blog before midnight!

Onto more important things though – who wants Tasmania when you can have Tazmazia! All I can say is that if it’s anything like Wanaka’s Puzzling World, I’m sure it was a hit with the kids.

I love it when my sisters go dome-campaigning for me. I’m given these special gifts from people I’ve never met before and the other upside is that my sisters have to do the obligatory thankyou-coffee or drink on my behalf! I am loving this system. Thanks Mosweg, you know who to go for that thank you gesture!

I’ve been a little lazy with my camera over the break, but here’s a couple of happy snaps:

George, the beautiful resident peacock at one of the Hunter's wineries

Kamaji's odd sleeping habits

The delectable scampi entree at Ron's 40th celebrations at Muse

Shake 600: SHAKE 600!

November 26, 2011

Me, Hobart (Tasmania), August 2008

We're pretty proud of our little devil

Sound the trumpets. Pop the good champagne. We’ve arrived! And at the same time I can’t believe I actually made it. It’s a milestone – not just that I own 600 snowdomes, but I’ve actually been blogging for 600 days straight! Did you hear that? 600 DAYS STRAIGHT!

Now you might think this is all very well for me to congratulate myself for my fine effort, but what’s in it for you? Basically nothing. If you’re a true friend, you’ll buy ME a drink right? RIGHT?

This is one of the rare domes that I’ve actually inserted a photo into. Sorry for the blur, but that’s me and Mr Snowdomes celebrating our first anniversary in Tassie.

Thanks for taking this journey with me folks, particularly those who stayed on board for the entire 600!

Shake 509: On the cusp

August 27, 2011

Dave F, Devonport (Australia), year?

Are you allowed to have a favourite transition season? I can’t say I have a favourite season, but I just love this transition from winter to spring. The sun’s out, the magpies are back, a crisp little breeze remains and the coffee tastes even better!

Thanks Dimity (and the Uliveto team), you’re my fav weekend barista.

Shake 199: Highs

October 21, 2010

Claim your dome!

Lots of boxes ticked today, but high tea at the Langham was the high point!

Dave M, Tasmania (Australia), year?

My mate Dave successfully merged his company with another one just last month; and it sounds like the vision is huge and the boundaries are now limitless.

Congratulations Dave. You might be a bigwig, business entrepreneur, but don’t forget the important things – like domes from Japan. Considering how many times you’ve been there over the last couple of years, I’ve got very little to show for it!
