funkypancake blog is 10 years old today!



I started 10 years ago exactly today. can you believe it?

over that time i’ve posted over 20,000 pages of blog-ness and i suspect over 30,000 pictures.  difficult to say.

my life has changed quite dramatically since i started. kids are 10 years older.  we now live on the other side of the planet.

i’ve also got through a few different cameras just by wearing them out!  i’m on my fourth compact camera and second SLR.  which actually doesn’t sound that bad over 10 years.

i’ve given the site a bit of a make-over to celebrate (no cakes, sorry).  and i’ll start posted slightly bigger pictures when the current preloaded pictures filter through.

i’ve also found a few old ones that where i created the draft posts but never got round to posting them.

thanks for coming on the journey of    I’m still not entirely sure what it’s about but it’s certainly a big archive of something.

take care …   dave




a plate of reminiscence


we used to have plates like this when i was a kid i think.  i’d totally forgotten until i received my afternoon tea on one at a cafe somewhere



big cakes with big holes are very popular in new zealand



cake made by the biggest loser in wellington.  to be compared with the biggest loser in auckland’s cake when he gets round to making it

morning tea


this is a poison berry muffin according to the chap serving us.  i went for the altogether more healthy option of chocolate muffin and cream


this is a donut


let’s not get in to an argument over spelling.   the concern here is more about shape.  this is a kiwi donut.
