Tea Eggs

Cracking up over Tea Eggs

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again. Which is no frickin’ surprise really, given that horses don’t have opposable thumbs. Luckily for Raffles, who also had a great fall over the weekend, we didn’t rely on […] Read more…

Venetian blinder // Venice with kids

We’re feeling a little Italian inspired at La Casa di Eats World so we’re heading on a little trip down memory lane (or should I say canal?) to reminisce on the ghosts of holidays past and, in particular, on masks and mayhem, Venetian style. Lording it up in Venice in the most ridiculously over-sized and indulgent hotel suite […] Read more…
