Please God, don't let it be another franchise clothing shop.

My stay-at-home human is frazzled today. Maybe it's because Mr Thumper and I still have woffly tummies.

But I suspect it's mostly because Lukey's human's legendary boulangerie-pâtisserie moved away yesterday.
Lukey likes me A Lot, if you know what I mean. Sadly, I can't remember the last time he shared some cabanossi with me.

A long time ago, when Mr Thumper was still allowed to eat stuff with fat and sugar in it, this was one of his must-do stops on his Tasty Treats Tour of Balmain. He didn't always get a treat, even when he refused to budge from the doorway, even when he blocked everyone else from walking in.

But, not one to hold a grudge, Mr Thumper always left a generous tip in drool on the doorstep.

Ahhh, those were the days! Au revoir rhubarb tart! Au revoir strawberry-mascarpone slice! Au revoir flourless chocolate cake!

It's going to take 20 minutes now, to walk to the new shop in Rozelle. That's great news for moi!

It's going to take 20 minutes now, to walk to the new shop in Rozelle. That's bad news for my stay-at-home human and her stinky knee.

But we all know what she's like when it comes to food. So I'm going to bravely predict that this is not goodbye, but rather...

...a bientôt!

As for who's going to move into this once-yummy spot?

See title please.


p.s. We used Google Translator because we couldn't afford a real one. So we do hope le français est bon.

At last!Since the Sunday meeting in the park, there's been a lot more awareness on the streets with signs like this one up, even outside Woolie's.

Better late than never, especially since the perpetrator hasn't yet been caught.

The extra minutes means more energy burn which equals to more treats at the shop... not a bad turn of event :)

Licks, hero

that is SO true hero! but i think my stay-at-home human would still have preferred the shop to be 3 minutes up the road. that's why she's getting f-a-t but we'd better not tell her that :p

have a great weekend! xox
