Tonight's the Night

I won't be watching It's a Knockout tonight. I've been counting down the days and the day that it's finally here I'm sick. This would usually not be a problem, when you're sick you lay on the lounge and watch tv. The problem is that we don't have a tv. This is officially the first time in our history of no tv-ness that I'm questioning our sanity. Oh well, at least I can find pictures of our resident celebrity blogger and put them up.

She's the one in the funny hat.

And possibly the one with the big book.

But here's the corker, Kt Mac has somehow managed to down two of her opposing team mates and pose for a picture all whilst dressed as a rat.

Kt Mac, you rock my world.

Location:Tonight's the Night!

Hugely Grateful

I know everyone in the world knows how great Mum and Dad are, but I just wanted to do a little more shouting it from the roof tops.
To be honest I think we nearly killed them on Saturday. All the cooking, cleaning, dragging, mowing, wheelbarrowing, making, sorting, decorating and so much more that they did was super human and amazing.
They were a massive huge part of the memories that were made for 28 of Connor's friends.
The farm and its occupants will go down in the history books as totally rockin'.
Thank you so much Mumma and Grandpa for ALL that you do to make super memories.
We will give you a bit of a break before the next party! You have totally earned it!

Run Geelong

This face just ran 6km. Well, half walked half ran.

After 3 training runs and 2 weeks of hacking up my lungs I'm so happy I made it, along with my awesome support team, co-runners and cheerleaders at the start line.

Next year we're gonna try for best costume!

Curly Temple

I found a tutorial on the internet of how to get curls without heat.  The 'wideo' takes a little while to watch but the actual doing of it doesn't take long at all. 

I decided to give it a bash this morning and it was awesome.  I then put it up because I didn't have time (actually, Langlan didn't have time) to do the whole 'brushing it around your hand' thing to make it look good. 

Fun, fun, fun and awesome for those of us who never really do their hair (I'm fairly sure there's a few of you reading this)!

A Sea Change

It's a beautiful day so we've headed to beautiful Barwon Heads.

I saw a guy on a bike that may or may not have been Cadel Evans. I'm gonna pretend it was.

Strawberry Fields Forever

This is what $2 worth of strawberries looks like.  Actually, this is what $1.50 worth of strawberries looks like. 

Langy G and I are just back from our local fruit shop (oh Fruit Shack, how I love you) which has a specials rack out the back.  I noticed it had a box of punnets of strawberries for $2.  They were the double sized punnets so I figured they were $2 a punnet.  However, (big however) the strawberries inside the shop were only $1.79 for the same size.  I asked the girl at the check out if it was $2 for the whole box and it was.  I ran, not walked, but ran outside and grabbed the box. 

The lady in front of me at the check out came over to me because she had heard me asking the check out girl about the strawberries.  After much conversing she ended up buying one of the punnets off me for 50 cents.  I actually didn't own the strawberries yet so I'm not sure how legal our sale was but she was happy and so was I because my strawberries now cost me $1.50.  And just in case you're wondering, I did offer for her to just take a punnet but she wouldn't (maybe because I didn't own them yet?!) and I offered her more but she only wanted the one.  I'm not that much of a hard sell! 

So, it's strawberry heaven in this house  now. 

And this is what Langy G looks like after a strawberry, banana and yogurt milkshake.  Satisfied.

Little note: Blogger is spastic and won't put my photos where I want them. Poopy-head blogger.

This Moment

I love celebrating small moments...remembering them...enjoying them, 'cause one day this kid will be BIG and old and not around so much.

I couldn't find him the other day and it was time for school. After I had called his name 5 gazillion times I heard a faint "Mummmmmmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"
I headed towards the sound and this is what I saw.

Just what he was doing was a mystery until he said "I was looking for my hat and I got stuck." Of course that is what you were doing!

After a quick photo shoot I rescued him.
Small moments with my long legged kid!

AS time goes by...

This is what I want Pobj and I to be like when we get old. I want to still think he has a great butt even when we are 75!


I just wanted to say that I have an AMAZING family. You guys all bless us in so many different ways. Thank you ALL for being you and loving me.

We've Been Doing Laps of the House

Check him out!

Kenzi's New Glasses...Guest Post

I have glasses. Yep! And a great magical case to put them in. I am very excited. I think I look a little bit like Aunti Calli, and that is all good.
Mummy says that the blog is playing up on her and so all these photo's have to be together and not with little captions underneath like I wanted.
Thank you for reading my post and for letting me be a guest on your blog.

Sunday, Sunday

Here's a closer look at how the market went down on Sunday...

7B was the place to be!

Setting up and a little glimpse of the beautiful view over the bay that we had. Dani, do you recognise the sled on the right?!

The hairy-bellied bunnies and bears which were much oohed and aahed over but ended up all coming home. That's ok though because Langlan NEEDS 12 more stuffed toys.

10% of all sales headed Movember way. Andrew got half and Brenton the other half, as long as Vonny remembers to hand over the dosh.

These little gnomies and natural play blocks were a hit. They sold out and we have orders for more. They were a combined effort, Vonny made the bags, I made the gnomes (with a little more Vonny help) and Andrew made the blocks. Now we just have to find more branches to steal to fill our orders!

The pretty hair accessories stand.

My handsome assistant who totally helped to make this all possible.

My other handsome assistant who made more mischief than help but also made up for it by his total cuteness and his awesome Mumma who was a total star and helped out in every way possible.

Thank you to everyone who helped out, to everyone who popped by to say hello and to everyone who bought something.

We'll be back the same time but not the same place next month. Cadel Evans is coming to town so the markets have been shifted across the road to Transvaal Gardens. I presume they'll still be called Steampacket Markets but the view won't be as good. We'll probably be looking at the tax office, hmph.

Time flies when you are having a blast!

Little Surprises

I love surprises, as long as I don't know that it's coming because then I just get impatient!

Andrew created this little surprise for me in the studio out of blocks we'll be selling tomorrow at Steampacket Markets. I don't get to keep it but it was nice while it lasted!

And Then Vonny Asked...

"Is it still alive?"

Definitely dead but exquisitely fresh Sushi at Sakuratei on Shannon Ave. So, so good.
