Giving caffeine to boy-children, even Italian ones, is contra-indicated on the label.

Kate said...

oh that's so cute!
Now you have to buy a bambino! I love those cars!

Our bio teacher had one and he was forever wandering around with grease on his clothes and a spanner in his hand.

Alan, those labels are for wusses. Caffeine and alcohol are character building in the young.

Although the name sort of refers to our cart, which is our little Italian boy at heart.

Kate, a love of Fiats certainly helped the cause when it came to names! We sold our Fiat at the beginning of the year - I think I feel guilty about it still.

Kate said...

At least you got a Vespa ;)

Mike said...

Niiice.
When you expanding southwards?

Em said...

Excellent. Can't wait to be there at the debut, for a beautiful union of blogging, coffee and kindergarten goodness!

Mr Reasonable said...

Love it. Sadly will miss the grand opening due to a friends wedding...would they undersatnd if I was late? Hmmmm, Latte to go perhaps...

Martha said...

Thanks all for your supportive words!

We don't mind if you can't make it - may be wise to come to our next gig, as the first may be a little - ahem - amateur.

I used to have a Fiat bambina. You know the clutch & accelerator were worked by no. 8 fencing wire running from the pedals to the engine. Very easy to fix.

Good luck with the first gig Martha.

I shall ignore that last comment...

Lovely name - my very best wishes!

Martha said...

Thanks Caroline and Llew.

Hopefully our cart won't need too much number 8 wire - although having just spent $270 on an extension cord, actually I think the number 8 wire would be preferable.

Mr Reasonable said...

$270! I guess it needs to be long enough to stretch from Petone to Newtown...

Martha said...

Oh don't even get me started. It is only 12 metres, but has the biggest female and male bits you've ever seen in your life - in an electrical sense.
