    Oh no sorry Hannah, I think the chocolate paddle pop is the best!

  2. Lisa

    I am a banana paddlepop gal myself 😉

    ps – for some reason it wont let me post my comment – so if you get multiples….sorry!

  3. Ashley

    I’m sorry, I’m with the boys, I’m all about a the almond magnum…mmm….although I did cave into frosty fruits the other day…so refreshing! 🙂

    And yay for a gig that went well! 🙂 I used to be an alto in my highschool madrigal group, kinda miss that group singing feelin’!

    Oh lord. Nuts, Paddlepops, Golden Gaytimes, Magnums…I don’t know what any of those things are (besides nuts), but my head is totally overflowing with euphemistic imagery right now.

    Rainbow Paddlepop, blue sky and a NSW coast – you’ve taken me back to my childhood :). These days I would normally go for the Magnum myself too (caramel or coffee, thank you for asking …) but always a Paddlepop when at the beach.
    Also, fantasticamical is most definitely a real word and always will be!

      P.S. as someone who has resorted to the ‘leg prison’ before, that dog is only still there because it chooses to be …

      1. Rach

        Haha! This is so true! We try to put Oreo in “leg prison” sometimes, but he gets out as soon as he wants to. 😉

  6. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    The nut guy at the Moruya markets is usually at the Old Bus Depot markets, so if you are wanting any of those flavours, you can get them there.

    I am definitely a chocolate paddlepop girl, have never been able to do the rainbow flavour thing.

    1. Whispering Gums

      I knew I’d tasted those nuts somewhere. Is he also the same one who goes to Floriade?

    Oh Nut Stand Man, we all feel your pain at a lost sale. Oh Paddlepop, how I long to learn of your delights. Oh alto, how I disliked being you in high school; being you was in my teenaged mind halfway to turning into a boy. In my nowadays mind, I don’t suppose I’ve changed my mind stance much, but just for myself of course. Not for the lovely SWGC alto delights.

    Can it be such a bad Leg Prison if the legs are so smooth and well-kept, aka stronger and more fantasticamically athletic than mine?

  8. Sig

    Yay for rainbow paddlepops. Although, just recently I read somewhere something that broke my heart.

    APPARENTLY, rainbow paddlepops are just caramel flavoured and not rainbow flavoured! Blasphemy!

    I’m glad the trip went well and you sung your beautiful soprano heart out (as try as I may, I could never reach beyond an alto’s range. Was mighty jealous of all my soprano friends).

    I had a vague idea where Moruya is, but I just looked it up. It’s very close to a little town called Congo. I didn’t know there is such a place in Australia.
    Puppy dogs willingly enter that prison. I don’t think they want to be rescued by kind hearted girls who eat Paddlepops! 😉

  10. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    Hahaha leg prison. Love it!
    Also, rainbow paddle pops! eee that just got me so excited even though I am current in frigid weather

  11. Fi

    You know, I completely forgot about the donuts, what with the singing and the paddlepops and the afternoon’s stunning wonderfulness!

    Been thinking of you and your family today xxxx

  12. Kath Lockett

    I’ve been doing a catch up on your news and am sorry to hear about your grandmother. It sounds like you have the family, friends and activities you need to get you through this sad time. My grandfather died six years ago and I still get teary when I talk about him…..

    Paddlepop must be chocolate. It doesn’t look pretty but must be chocolate.

  13. Lou

    Hurray! Rainbow paddlepops!

    Golden Gaytimes are pretty awesome too. And they have a hilarious catch phrase.

    I was a second alto when I used to be in a chorale…. a long long time ago 🙂

    I love a good old eskimo pie – do you?

  14. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    You had a solo? That is ridiculously exciting (said by the person who didn’t have to sing solo) 🙂 And I love that you’re a soprano. I’m a nothing because my voice doesn’t seem to have any range, nor does it carry particularly well, but I think soprano sounds impressive!

    I love the running, skipping and twirling (metaphorically or otherwise), nuts, impressively coloured paddle pop, the friends and singing and hugs, and that your parents made it up 🙂 I love the whole weekend for you actually. I hope the return to Canberra has been as smooth as one could hope xo

  15. Johanna GGG

    What! no gaytimes! that would be my choice – though I do have a fine appreciation for a magnum! Glad you had a good time with your choir – am sure your grandma would be pleased

  16. Melanie @ Melanie Cooks

    Those donuts look delicious!

  17. Winston

    Wow… You can sing AND cook too?!?!? What CAN’T you do, Hannah!! Give the rest of us less skilled simpletons a break!! ;p I kid I kid… Lovely to read your posts as always =]

  18. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    This paddlepop brings childhood memories~it looks like something I used to love and it looks delishhhh. Haha, that leg prison part made me laugh so much! The dog looks kind of miserable….:P Oh! And I’m toootally interested in your singing soprano! I wish I could hear you. I truly appreciate it when people use their gifts, and I appreciate the fact that you have such a cool one too 🙂

  19. Agnes

    This post would totally have been better if there’d be horses. 😉

    Hey, what flavour is a rainbow paddle pop? I feel like it should be bubble gum flavoured…

    1. Agnes

      Err, if there’d been horses. Apparently when I think of horses, I lapse into cowboy speak.

  20. Whispering Gums

    I do hope “the pink that appears to be a tail light” didn’t end up on the shirt that was supposed to be white. Oh, and great concert btw.

  21. Errign

    I don’t know what Paddlepops taste like, but I wish we had them here, just because of their name 🙂 Congrats on a good performance!

  22. Amanda

    I’m really sorry about your grandma, Hannah – she sounds wonderful.
    Thanks for another beautiful post.
    On the ice-cream front, I’m surprised to find out that rainbow paddlepops are caramel – I’ve avoided them my whole life because I assumed they’d be bubblegum, which I hate! I’ll have to give them a go, because whilst I like chocolate and I like ice-cream, I’m not really keen on chocolate ice-cream including paddlepops. 🙂

  23. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    Great pics and lovin’ the donut pics. I am planning on making some this weekend!

  24. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Glad the performance went well!

    Although my sister and I have maintained since we were children in the 80s that the best Paddle Pop flavour was the spearmint/chocolate combo they used to make. It was divine!

  25. Hotly Spiced

    Did anyone rescue that poor dog??? I would love a few of those doughnuts right now.

  26. Camille

    Ooh, a solo. I know you were amazing. How could you not be after a dozen different flavors of nuts and an ice cream bar?

  27. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Im totally a banana paddle pop girl. Still love me? Leg Prison!! Best.
    Heidi xo

  28. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I love the rainbow ice cream. I’ve never tasted a rainbow, but I’m sure they taste fabulous. 🙂
