Tonights pain was totally self-inflicted at my reformer pilates course. (Which I am absolutely loving by the way)
Tuesday's pain was kind of by choice but I stepped innocently into an open pilates class with the gorgeous Karla who I have now re-named the 'Smiling Assassin'. Little did I know her love of travelling lunges, duck walks and crab laps!! As a result I have not been able to lower myself without my thigh muscles screaming. Sitting at the computer was hard but getting up from this chair is going to be harder!
Wednesday I stupidly agreed to help out one of the instructors by allowing her to use me as a guinea pig while she practised her routine. God I'm stupider than I thought.
So... having done very minimal exercise in the last 6 months I opt to do 3 open pilates classes in 3 days!! Can anyone say 'moron'?
Excuse me while I get Kahuna to rig up a rope and pulley system to lower me into a hot bath...

What happened to the days when parents felt comfortable letting their children ride scooters up and down their street, or climb ridiculously high trees, or ride their bikes to the creek for some yabbying (whatever happened to Yabbies? Are they still out there?), or let their firstborn share her blankie with their boxer dogs? Yes DOGS. There is a photo somewhere of me asleep wedged between two of these gorgeous creatures. This one is the matriarch of our Boxers - Bijou, who was Dad's first child and who graciously made room in the family for me.

'1000 square metres of fine antiques, used furniture, collectibles, books, and a few things we haven't quite figured out yet!'
I'll save our purchases for another day but let me assure you there are a lot more items with my name written all over them - if I only had a bigger car (and a bigger house for that matter).

I think there is even a photo just like this in Mum's album of Mick and I many moons ago!
The loveliest sight was the blanket of yellow flowers that has been thrown over the Bellarine Peninsula. I know these are weeds but they are just gorgeous. Every paddock, roadside verge and spare inch of grass is starred with gold. We kept catching our breath as around every corner there was a new delight. What a gem of a day!

I was about to change the 'Eye Candy of the Week' and decided I'd throw it open to all you discerning blog readers. I'm going to theme it though so as to narrow the field and this weeks theme is 90's TV stars. So start racking your brains for hot candy from 90210, Melrose, Dawson's Creek etc. (This will give you a reprieve from the Keith Urban photo I was going to post!!)
I you have as much trouble as I do with the comments page just shoot me an email and I'll post it on the blog. firstname.lastname@example.org

There wasn't a lot there that I hadn't seen before but I did find some great alphabet friezes from Miriam Bereson which will be great and they also do these amazing mirror birds for your wall which I think are amazing. They should be arriving instore early September so I'll keep you posted.
The other product I am looking forward to is the School Days Record Book from Milestone Press. This is a fabulous looking book with pages to record memories from the first day of Prep to the last day of secondary school. Each year has a pocket to store items such as paintings, certificates, photos etc and it is an amazing record of the school years.
We are also doing their baby version 'A Book About Me' to record memories from pregnancy to age 5.
All in all a successful outing - now hopefully everyone else will like what I chose and come a buy up all these great new products. (Or I'm going to be giving everyone I know an Alphabet frieze for Christmas!!)
A MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS TO
LISA AND SAM
- THE POSTER COUPLE FOR THE PERFECT PARTNERSHIP. WE LOVE YOU LONG TIME.

This photo just scrapes in as it's taken in 1985. It's one of my favourite photos as it is so evocative of my fabulous school days. This is Kris and I catching some rays in the corridor at school and although I look like I'm puckering up for a kiss I 'm sure Kris was just offering me some of her lunch. This photo makes me want to go back to those days so much... when you spent all day with your best friends instead of trying to catch a spare half hour together around kids, work, husbands, LIFE!!!
