Three for three

Three for three

David posted this photo to #LuxvilleTales. Madame Yum returns the favour.  THREE FOR THREE. David kissed his mother goodbye. “That was lovely mum. Can I do the dishes for you?” It was now a rhetorical exchange worn well through five years worth of afternoon teas. “Well yes you can actually. I […]

The Glory Sisters

The Glory Sisters

Cait posted these pics to #LuxvilleTales. Madame Yum returns the favour.  THE GLORY SISTERS. “She won’t do it, I’ll tell you that for free!” And the door closed in Cait’s face. A bookend for words and doors earlier that day. Cait walked to the end of the verandah of the Imperial Hotel and […]

The House of Lux

The House of Lux

Christine posted this pic to #LuxvilleTales. Madame Yum returns the favour. THE HOUSE OF LUX. She almost stepped on it as she ran out the door. Car-keys and phone in one hand, bag and water-bottle in the other. “Bye Ginny.” she yelled over her shoulder as she pulled the door closed […]

Graham posted this pic to #LuxvilleTales. Madame Yum returns the favour. NO LAST TIME TO DANCE. Three were grouped around a table.

Knowing where you come from.

Knowing where you come from.

A muse for granted

A muse for granted

Dear Darling Citizens, I have news – some sad, some happy and some fabulous. Grief is such a huge part of life and yet my experience of it has been from a distance until lately. (This is the sad bit). Queen Mary left our shores in late 2014, and Darling […]

A Lamp Darkly.

A Lamp Darkly.

Michael posted this pic to #LuxvilleTales. Madame Yum returns the favour. A Lamp Darkly. The nightclub was thick with mood when her rumoured presence rippled inward from the door. She arrived encased by crew, her blond pony just visible through a phalanx of black leather and shades. Like a full-circle skirt, […]

Heart to Heart

Heart to Heart

Dearest citizens of Luxville, Thank you all for your beautiful thoughts, wishes and love that were felt, sent, emailled, phone, texted, acted on, carrier pigeoned and given. So sorry to have to postpone Luxville Heart on Feb 14th. Myself (Madame Yum) and the Luxville City Council will ensure you are on a […]
