THAT GINGERBREAD PLACE!

Editor Des

Hello, Editor Des here. Well today I went to my favourite restaurant in the whole of the Blue Mountains.  I took along my camera to show you what it’s like;

Gingerbred House, Katoomba

Do you know what? It’s in an old church, so I think it might be specially blessed.  I don’t know who the lady is, but she certainly has her hands full.

There are two soldiers guarding the entrance doors, but I found them quite friendly.

Well, before you can eat lollies and  gingerbread and stuff you have to have a proper lunch, which is not so good.  However, mine was a bit like a picnic, so I really liked it. My guardian Pauline Conolly said I should have ordered wholemeal bread, but I ignored her.  There is a limit to this healthy food nonsense, don’t you think?

A very healthy lunch.

If you look high up in the old church windows you might  be lucky enough to  spot a mother rabbit and her baby. And when you have eaten all your ham and cheese you can have a very special puddingy  drink. Mine was called a Hansel, and it made me float on air, mate!

It was so yummy I levitated!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many yummy things here, not just gingerbread. I might buy my girlfriend Milly  a Gingerbread House kit for Christmas, then I could eat it, hahaha.

A whole wall of lollies to gladden the heart.

The lolly wall. Can you see me?

See those packets of ‘Fads’ in the photo below ? Pauline said when she was little they were called something else and they are a type of cigarette.  OK, I’ll take a few of those then.

How am I ever going to decide what to spend my pocket money on?  Well those Fag,, sorry Fads, look interesting.

 

So  dear people, my final word is;

 

Oh, nearly forgot to show you the Gingerbread Men. Two  had escaped and were  wandering around Katoomba. It’s a wonder someone didn’t eat their sugary heads, or their sweet legs.

I love gingerbread men.

GOODBYE FROM YOUR DEAR FRIEND AND RESTAURANT CRITIC, EDITOR DES. XXXX

  1. See the smiley sentry in one of the photos where Editor Des went for a delicious meal…I have a tall Little Drummer Boy to match him. When we return to Australia to live, early next year, I want to pack him in the container with our household goods. I purchased him at a garage sale for $60 and I thought it was a bargain. He has a little bit of a wear ‘n tear about him, but I love him. Once I had him home(he stands about 6 feet or a little more), I didn’t have a space to stand him. Now, he’s in the corner of our living room of our 55+ detached, brick house. Maybe we’ll buy a larger house when we return home and he won’t have such an inconspicuous placement. I loved the description of your Gingerbread House experience.

      I think your Drummer Boy was definitely a bargain, Heather. Editor Des would be very jealous!
