My Boys

I've been making the most of Facebook lately after a slow start. I used to only look at it if I was contacted through it but now I check it daily and keep up with what everyone's doing and it's addictive. My favourite part of Facebook is staying in contact with some of my students through the years. Quite a few have found me and added me as a 'friend'. I now get to see them as they get older and move on to new and exciting phases of their lives. I can't belive that my babies are now grown men!

Grade 4 - 1997
Boy in Blue (my, hasn't he changed!)

Grade 3 - 2000
Skater Boy (with cigarette I notice!)
Grade 4 - 1997
Ok, so they didn't all turn out to be rocket scientists - but at least they're having a good time!

Movie Of The Week - CRAZY HEART

Synopsis: JEFF BRIDGES stars as the richly comic, semi-tragic romantic anti-hero Bad Blake in the debut feature film CRAZY HEART from writer-director Scott Cooper. Bad Blake... Bad Blake is a broken-down, hard-living country music singer who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. And yet, Bad can’t help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean (MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL), a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician. As he struggles down the road of redemption, Bad learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man’s crazy heart.

**** 4 stars from me!

It's Not Fair

A couple of times a week we are lucky enough to share afternoon tea with some lovely friends. The down side of this is that when it is their turn to provide afternoon tea, it kind of beats my offerings hands down. Last week Leslie produced this for Friday Arvo..

and Caitlin brought this out on Wednesday!

How is a girl supposed to drop the kgs with friends like these?
Even Eliza had it in for me with this confection arriving on the table for Saturday lunch!

(Note - Lygon St Cakes made Eliza's although I'm sure she could make it too!)
