Dear friends and other interesting creatures, I popped into Cafe Patisse Greenside today to check out the unicorn rainbow melt advertised on their Facebook page, and it is so cute! Made me wish I had a small person to impress. There was a table with many little people with their mom and dad sitting behind me. I heard this small voice declare it the best taste he “has ever has”. Then the kids (all under seven I think) started taking pictures of their food. I did compliment the parents on starting them young. I had a favourite of mine, the … Continue reading Unicorn Rainbow Melt

Seeing these two roads before me, … Continue reading Joyride
