love of surf culture
a love of shopping
and a million more that I'm sure I'll think of as soon as I sign off...
Happy Birthday Dad.
(Surfer Boy wanted me to add another - we are both vulgar and have a dirty sense of humour. - fair enough)

Andrew with Tas's dog Gemma
In Memory - Tasman Blizzard arch
Everyone heads through Tas's arch to hit the water.
The board riders formed a circle, holding hands while Blizz scattered Tas's ashes to a huge roar of approval from the board riders and those watching from the beach.And as was so appropriate, everyone road the waves back in.
Tasman Blizzard farewell
The board riders club put on a BBQ and everyone slowly left the beach to continue to celebrate Tas's life with Blizzy, Rosemary and Michael. The whole day made me proud to be a part of such a supportive community and I hope that somewhere out there Tas was watching 'cause I recon he would have loved it.

For those of you who, like me, love shopping online, here's the latest website to check out. My lovely sister-in-law has developed Onesies.com.au and it went live over the weekend. If you are looking for a onesie (baby bodysuit) then this is the place to go. She has a wonderful selection of labels and caters to all budgets.
Pop in and have a look and let me know what you think.

What a shame this home is in Tuscany - although I'm not adverse to moving there for a few years, especially if we get to live here.
I'm sure for many that kitchen would be a nightmare but I think it is an absolute feast for the eye, and I'm sure there are lots of wonderful smells emanating from there as well.

So here are some bits and pieces that Tas might have liked..
Point Lonsdale Back Beach
Thursday, 7 August 2008
I first met him when he was about 12.
He was the little brother of my dear friend.
He grew up and became a surfer,
A rock star,
And a beautiful man.
He had time for everybody. He made me smile.
He was one of the good ones, a gentle, gentle soul.
He died on Friday.
He crashed his car and left us.
I'm so grateful that his world touched mine.
Tasman Blizzard 1972 - 2008
What a fabulous chenille quilt. Such a soothing colour palette.
Aaah, this is where I should be enjoying my cuppa!
