I worked in the shop today which means that most of the day Kieth Urban was on the stereo. (I'm using subliminal messaging techniques to convert my customers to the way of KIETH)
Last night I bit the bullet and ordered a pair of cowboy boots from the truly fabulous SHEPLERS in America. I've been thinking about them all day.
They also sell the most astonishing wedding fashion if anyone is about to walk down the aisle!
I also got on ebay and ordered Heartbreakers Hall Of Fame from the superb Sunny Sweeney. I can't wait for it to arrive and I know James is just going to love it!! NOT!
Check out her myspace site and have a listen to 'If I Could'.
If that song does not get stuck in your head then I'll go 'hee'
I also had a visit today from my all time favourite radio DJ - Ms Denise Hylands. Denise has a radio show on RRR called TWANG and if you're in the store on a Saturday arvo that is what you'll be listening to. A plethora of alternative country and roots influenced music.
And lastly can you please feast your eyes on this fetching hat and tell me it doesn't make you want to boot-scoot your way down the aisle immediately.

What is not to love about this fantastic musical? 1982 saw a 23 year old Michelle Phieffer team up with Maxwell Caulfield and sing and dance her way into our hearts with such classics as - 'We're Gonna Score tonight', 'Cool Rider', and 'Reproduction'.
If any of you can listen to 'Cool Rider' and not want to be the cool Stephanie Zenoni then there is no hope for you.
If you really want to know
What I want in a guy...
Well, I'm lookin' for a dream on a mean machine
With hell in his eyes.
I want a devil in skin tight leather,
And he's gonna be wild as the wind.
And one fine night, I'll be holdin' on tight...
To a coooool rider, a coooool rider.
If he's cool enough,
He can burn me through and through.
Whhoa ohhhh If it takes forever,
Then I'll wait forever.
No ordinary boy,No ordinary boy is gonna do.
I want a rider that's cool.I found this fabulous fan site so check it out for your Rydell High fix.
One of the newer products we have in the shop are the fabulous rocket and castle cubbys.
These play structures are constructed from recycled high-quality cardboard allowing children to develop their imagination and creativity by painting, drawing, or even applying stickers to the outside surface. When not in use they make a great place to store toys.
Each cubby is easy to assemble and packaged flat in an attractive box with a carry handle.

They are doing something on a cooling tower at a power station in Qld somewhere. Knowledgeable aren't I.
I usually prefer to hear about the job after he is safely back from it.
Especially when he's doing stuff like this...

I was still up chatting to a friend in Sydney when the clock ticked over to my birthday. (Kudos to Ringo for being the first one to wish me a Happy Birthday - at 10 past 12) By one o'clock I was curled up in bed , reading my book and loving being 39. At 1.30am it all went pear shaped!
Emma woke up vomiting and did not stop until 1.00pm!!! Not sure if the poor petal had gastro or food poisoning but I do know that that was the end of any hopes of salvaging the birthday. I had to cancel my morning coffee date and ended up spending the day holding Emma's hair out of the bucket and trying to keep Ben amused cooped up inside all day. Joy.
At 2.00pm we all fell asleep - thank god.
I had visions of coming down with it myself and having to miss the ballet but luckily Em perked up, Mick and Alice arrived and off Alice and I went. I've never been so pleased to see my brother.
We had a gorgeous night as my last post will tell you and the birthday was saved - sort of.
My lovely friends have decided to postpone my birthday and hold the Festival in 2 weeks time.
Sounds good to me.
PS. I did get a pressie in the mail from James and even more exciting ... Kieth Urban sent me an email wishing me a happy birthday!!!
This made it all worth it..

When getting out of the house for an hour is mandatory and there are only so many times you can cope with freezing your arse off at the park.. where else could be better than a warm and welcoming cafe? My problem has always been the issue of 'allowed number of visits per day'. I have realised that if you go to the same cafe all the time then the staff quickly become aware that you have been 3 times in a day.... therefore you need to spread yourself around so no one knows exactly how often you drag your kids to cafes.
As far as Ian and Matt at 'Le Chien' know I am only there every other day....
Here is Matt after discovering my secret
Now that I can add The Famous Blue Raincoat to my list I am pretty much set and can roll from one to another, to another with no one (including hubby) being any the wiser! Clever aren't I!
The Famous Blue Raincoat

I've spent the evening watching Brenda and Dillon break up because 'they are getting too intense', Brandon leaving Nat at the Peach Pit for a new gig at the Beach Club, and apart from still wishing Dillon would throw me over the back of his Harley, I haven't been able to get past the shorts. They are criminal and followed in close second place by Kelly's severe lack of gammas! She is ghostly pale and really could have done with some fake tan.
Despite all this the gang at West Beverley still make me smile (and tear up occasionally), and I really wouldn't change a thing about them.
