Nearly Ready

Well it's past midnight so I guess officially it's Christmas Day - Merry Merry Christmas everyone! I'm fluffing around doing last minute chores for tomorrow's festivities and waiting to play Santa Claus. I've been trying to keep the Gingerbread Houses from going stale, and I even cleaned the oven - not sure why exactly. After being very relaxed about the whole thing I've developed an eleventh hour conscience and realised I should do some preparations.
I've even started to set the table - this year our placemats are old Christmas record covers and I even recognise a few from my childhood.

I think I'll try filling the stockings now - have a great day everyone.

Hmmm Yum.


We had dinner with some friends tonight and, of course, it involved dancing! There's no better way of fitting in extra dessert than daggy dancing around the backyard. One of the tunes was Last Christmas by Wham! which made me ask if they had Wham Rap. They couldn't remember it - can you believe it - so here it is for their education and your enjoyment.

Worse than Jean Shopping...

I have set aside today to buy myself new bathers - I have put it off numerous times but as we leave for the beach in a couple of days I can procrastinate no longer. Wish me luck.

Jeans Watch

Reece Witherspoon is right up there with Jen Aniston when it comes to knowing how to rock a pair of jeans.

No More Kinder - EVER

It's been a busy couple of days for Moondoggie - life's a whirlwind when you're 5.

Rumballs to make for the teachers,

School Concert to support his sister,

Gymnastics presentation and performance,

Christmas shopping for elusive lego for Dad,

Christmas Party,

and today he had is LAST EVER day of Kinder!

No longer is he a 'kinder kid', now he's a 'school boy'.


We love you to infinity and beyond.

I Went To See Keith Urban Last Night

I gave myself the best Christmas present ever, and spent the evening with Keith Urban - unfortunately there were a few other people there as well but he and I knew who he was singing to!

He came and sang at the end of our row of seats and once I had recovered from the shock of being 8 foot away from him I snapped a couple of pics. (hands were shaking so sorry about the quality).

This year two other friends joined me and we decided that it was, hands down, the best concert EVER!!!! Glad there were others there to confirm it this time. (see here for my review of the last concert)

It's That Time Again

Great fun despite the weather

Do you remember the massive electrical storm on Friday night? Thunder, lightening, torrential rain? Well guess what we were doing! CAMPING!!! Needless to say we didn't get a huge amount of sleep as it also rained like a bastard on Saturday night as well. The drive home on Sunday at least let some of us catch up on our Zzzs.


I've had such a good time tonight watching back episodes of Glee. This show brings a smile to my face every episode and I have been known to frequently laugh out loud to the concern of my family. I am so rapt that there is a show on TV that brings me such joy and delight every week, it's a rare thing indeed.
(gratuitous Mark Salling pic just for my benefit)
Gidget is sharing the love and look what the angel has bought me for Christmas!! Can't wait to belt out a few numbers into my hairbrush but I have to wait until the 25th.

Watch For The Chicken Move!

Caitlin shared this with me, knowing how much I would appreciate it - now I share it with you! Unfortunately I think she is deadly serious - Enjoy.

Oh My....

MELBOURNE'S property record has been smashed after a Hawthorn house sold for a price believed to be $25 million.

And my favourite part of the house!!!!

Bad Excuse Krissa

Recently a friend of mine tried to blame her lack of blogging on her cat! Apparently the cat was asleep on the keyboard and she was too scared to move her. Now I will admit that this cat is renowned for her psycho tendencies, but seriously! How hard could it be?

(this is a reenactment)

Surfer Boy found this lovely lady in the back yard today - not happy!!

Suffice to say, I have googled 'What the F--k do you do if you get bitten by a red back'. Apparently they can be deadly to children and the elderly! GREAT.
Step One - don't freak out
Step 2 - Ring ambulance
Step 3 - put ice on it
Step 4 - take panadol or equivalent

Bite Me

Surfer Boy is away all week so I think I might print this out and put it on my wall in case I get lonely! Hmmmm Yum!


My husband is gorgeous but sometimes I just don't want to know about his day at work. Photos like these remind me what he does every day and quite frankly I think I'm better off not knowing.

Orlando's Secret

Just in case you were in any doubt as to whether Miranda Kerr has a great arse!

This is not going to end well

Emma Rocks My World

Many conversations have been had about Glee recently. What a fabulous show. The singing, the dancing, the quirky characters, but so far I haven't discussed my very favourite part of the show - Emma's outfits!

This girl is amazing. She is sweetly insane and manages to make the most buttoned up outfits look superb. I watch in awe every week to see what delight she'll be wearing. Never have I seem such an amazing collection of broches, bows, and cardigans. She puts the girls of Gossip Girl to shame.

You are my new style icon Emma Pillsbury.

Check out Onesies for some fabulous baby gifts. Lots of great specials for Christmas.

Kooky Caitlin

My invitation to Halloween this year specified that costumes were expected - and by that I was meaning the adults specifically. No surprise that it was largely ignored.

The stand out and therefore the winner of the first ever Costume Prize goes to Caitlin - with not only one fabulous costume, but two! First up 'Westie' then a quick change to 'Wuthering Heights'. SUPERB!!

I can not believe tonight's announcement that this will be Rove's last show. Shocked and sad as he has been a part of my Sunday nights for the past 10 years. Hopefully he won't leave us for long.

Good luck Rove and thanks.


The kids favourite day of the year has been and gone and everyone had a fantastic time. The street embraced it and dozens of kids trick or treated their hearts out. The weather was perfect, food only covered one main food group - sugar - as it should and judging by the fact that our two hour party lasted long into the night suggests that the parents all had a good time too.

Just lovely, Blair

I am usually much more of a Serena fan when it comes to Gossip Girl fashion but I must say I'm loving these 'Blair' outfits. Oh for an unlimited bank account and the body of a 20 year old! I think the first one is my favourite.
