As I will be leaving this blog for an unknown time, here are the links to what I will be concentrating on this year. I’d love to see
some, all, any of you come and visit me.

Foody Blog – Food. Coffee. And a motorbike. Simple and honest food reviews – The Cafe Run.
Find more posts about food runs on Twitter using the following tag #TheCafeRun
Photography Blog – through the lens
I’m lacking in photographic motivation at the moment, (even though I am constantly surrounded by it) but my travel photos – at the very least – will be shared.
Beady (& craft) blog – Marcato Designs
Which also has been sorely neglected. But I’ve decided that this is my year and I plan on promoting

Not my personal name, that’s something else again. No, whats up with my blog name and tagline. Does it catch your eye, make you want to stay and look a little further? I hope so.
I’ve had this blog for nearly 3 years now, and it’s had a couple of name changes. All variations of the same theme.
When I first started this blog I wasn’t thinking of the future and whether my URL might need changing. I have looked into changing it but it just seems like too much trouble, I am easily confused by this sort of thing, and I could very well have to start fresh with followers, I’m not sure I want to go down that track.
So jenbeads it is. And jenbeads it will stay.
I think its easy enough to remember even if it’s got nothing to do with what I am writing about.
The name for my blog. As my friends and family know, and those who read long enough, I am never far from my camera and usually have a coffee close by or in my hand – I will do anything for a coffee. (Yes, I have one next to me as I write this).
The tagline, simply put, is what it is.
“Ramblings from a coffee addict”
A bit of this, a bit of that, coffee pictures, photos of other stuff. And occasionally family stuff.
That’s it for me, for day 2 of the challenge. It’s actually quite nice to come back, and start from the beginning again. To write, and think about why I did something, why I chose what I did. And for new visitors it should help you, maybe understand me a bit better (not that I understand me).
Maybe I can learn from that? Let’s see what the Challenge for day 3 brings us.
Catch you later:)

Cause I’m bored and it’s wet and cold, and I’m still trying to work on a few other posts…..
After reading some dismal and disappointing reviews I was hesitant to try the above mentioned cafe, but it was on my list and I would be in the area today.
While looking for coffee to warm our insides on a typically foggy morning in Huonville* we found another cafe that sold scallop pies. In we went only to find they were sold out, and we should go to Franklin or maybe their other shop in Geeveston (where the pies are made). Yeah I’m not going that far, so Franklin it is. Being only ten minutes down the road.
We arrive and order my pie and wait. Ten to fifteen minutes, pie arrives and we sit outside in the sun – the fog has cleared and there is a little warmth in the sun.
I’m not sure how they heated the pie, but it was burn-the-mouth hot. I waited til I got nearly home before I stopped to eat it. The cafe was deserted, and while it wasn’t toasty it was certainly warmer than outside. The two servers were young but friendly enough.
Their sign out the front makes the huge declaration of “the best scallop pies in Tas” which is a pretty big claim. Did it live up to it? I don’t think so. After only 3 pies there is not much separating them, but I still have (at least) 3 more to go. Check out the review page for my verdict.
As of re-editing this post I heard about one more in my area to try, and another should I decide to take a long drive/ride to get there.
Given the perfect weather but lack of time I didn’t get any pictures of the river and boats, despite taking my camera. I would still be there if given the choice. Maybe another day.
* a friend and I went to Huonville to check out a market we would be attending next month. Always good to do a little recon beforehand.
See my thoughts about it on the Marcato blog here and the pie review on my Food Adventures page.
Happy weekend 🙂

A call out to anyone and everyone, wherever you are in the world. Going on a holiday soon..even better. My friend Kelly has started a postcard wall in her office (currently only from friends and family) and would love to fill every spare inch with the little suckers. If you could possibly spare some change and send her one (or two or a dozen) that would be fantastic!! and I’ll give a shout out to any blogger friends that post one.
If you could share with your friends also = brilliant!
