Our Kylie Turns 40!!!

Today is the 40th birthday of a woman that I have admired for many years. Today Kylie Minogue hits a new decade and I wanted to take a tiny glimpse back at some Kylie images from an amazing career that has spanned 3 decades and does not look like stopping any time soon.

Happy Birthday Kylie...

Go'n To The Country

Keith would have been proud of me this weekend. I packed up the family and headed up country. Mum and Dad have been house sitting in Myrtleford so it seemed the perfect opportunity to get off our city arses and head to the Mountains.

Ben and I spent Friday buying up on glubs (gloves), beanies, hot water bottles, thermals etc. and felt we were all set to brave the elements. We drove up after school on Friday and after 4 hours in the car tumbled out to be greeted by a toasty fire and a massive big screen TV!!! Not exactly roughing it!

We spent Saturday morning at Bright, tumbling in the glorious Autumn leaves and basking in the sun. There is nothing like not being able to feel your toes but getting a tanned face.

Sunday was spent in Beechworth as the kids had heard a rumour that the greatest Lolly Shop in the WORLD was there. There was no rest for us until we found it. I must admit it was pretty magical! I thought Ben was going to implode! To our great astonishment both kids chose 1 pissy little lolly each and turned down our offer of getting them something else as well. They never cease to amaze me.

We capped off the weekend with a cheery visit to the cemetery. (As you do) James wanted to visit the Chinese cemetery that he remembered visiting when he was little. He was amazed to find it had shrunk, or he was bigger, one or the other.

3 hours home, stop at Maccas, and a very successful and enjoyable trip was had by all.

R.I.P. Men In Trees


There is nothing to say!

Actually, yes there is... how kooky is this chick???

Anne Heche says she can't afford to pay her ex-husband child and spousal support now that her series "Men in Trees" has been canceled, People reports.
Heche says she only has one job, a small movie role for which she was paid $65,000, the amount she received for one episode of "Men in Trees."
A judge ruled she won't have to pay ex-husband Coley Laffoon the July payment, but the judge wants updated income and expense information from Heche.

Oh Poor Anne! Maybe the aliens took her money?

Let's Get Physical, Physical.....

Remember a little while ago I told you I had joined the Gym? Well you'll be pleased to know (some of you may be shocked to know) that I have actually been going. In fact I am averaging 3 to 4 times a week!!

I have discovered that not only do I get to do a workout - which let's face it is not high on my list of fun things to do - but there is A MASSAGE CHAIR. And not just some pissy vibrating thing like at the hairdressers, but a real, close-your-eyes-and-you'd-think -there-was-a-big-Swedish-guy kind of massage chair. I am seriously in love. IT EVEN HEATS UP!!! I was a cat in a past life so a warm chair that rubs you in all the right places is so far beyond good it should be illegal. Now as if this wasn't enough to see me sneaking off to the gym every spare moment - they have a cafe!!! Well, an area with tables, magazines, and free tea and coffee. How good is that??

Now my workout is my incentive to get to the good stuff. You should see me power through those weights to get to my massage chair and a hot cuppa!!

Here is what my beautiful Massage Chair looks like - isn't he beautiful?

And this is what I have now added to my 40th birthday gift registry!!! (How good is it in pink?!)

And finally a couple of shots of me in action at the gym!!! Looking hot aren't I?!

(It shouldn't take you long to work out that I am in fact a brunette and about 20 kilo heavier than this chickie.)

Drop In And Visit

This is very appropriately called 'Icing Sugar Cottage'. Considering I have a dread of being cold I seem to be attracted to homes in the snow!
Unfortunately I can't remember where I get my images as I have a huge file of photos that I have collected over the years, so if this photo is yours I apologise.

What The Hell Is Wrong With Me?

Please tell me there is someone, anyone, else who cried at the Logies!!!!
I'm beginning to have a suspicion that my husband is right and I am, in fact, a nutcase! It all started with Heath. I usually well up big time in the Memorandum montage, we have lost so many fine young talents over the last few years, but this year I sobbed. I couldn't stop! I think I have somehow managed to pretend that Heath did not in fact die and he is out there somewhere doing his thing.

You can't argue with a Memorandum Montage though. It's a sledgehammer to the guts. Heath is dead.

I had just started to recover and compose myself when they announced the nominees for Most Outstanding Public Affairs Report! Australian Story won for their intimate documentary based on Belinda Emmett, partly made before she lost her battle with life. And Jen sobs again.

To cap it all off the lovely Kate Ritchie deservedly won the Gold and although this was very exciting, her speech completely did me in. More sobbing and with very sore eyes I sheepishly packed myself off to bed.

I am pathetic!

Surfer Boy is correct.

What Makes Me Cry?

This makes me cry every time.
Sarah Buxton is my favourite female vocalist and song writer so I thought I'd share this with you. I hope you like it.

Moondoggie Turns 4!

This blog is turning into a bit of a love-in, what with our wedding anniversary, Gidget turning 6 and now my gorgeous Moondoggie turning 4.

I feel like I am constantly raving about my family but bare with me for one more family milestone. After that you have at least a month off until the next one - MY 40th!!! (And you just know that will be a long post!)

Moondoggie appeared 3 weeks early back in 2004 and I fell madly in love with him.

Is has a lovely sweet nature and, like Lola, he is 'small and very funny'. He provides Gidget and I with constant amusement and is always first up for a kiss and and a cuddle if there's one offering. His favourite colour is green, he loves kisses, Boba Fett and the Power Rangers. He is a constant delight and I absolutely can not get enough of him.

Happy Birthday Moondoggie!
