I love vintage lobster ceramics. I am inspired that someone decided to slap a huge lobster on a bowl, plate, gravy boat. In fact I like and collect kitch Australia pottery and ceramics in general - but lobsters are my favourite.
I didn't hand in my Year 7 major English assignment on the Moon. I normally such a studious wee bugger but I didn't say anything and my teacher never asked for it. I still got a B for English but I broke out in a sweat for the rest of the term brought on by mortal fear that she was going to ask me where it was at any moment. Took 5 years off my life, I tell you.
I am no good at any sport that requires coordinated feet action - so that's me out for roller blading, roller skating, and ice skating. I blame my parents for not buying us roller skates when they were cool in the 70s. Oh and when it comes to skiing I prefer the apres before, during and after the skiing.
I can sing the French national anthem.
I used to dream of being on Young Talent Time, so I would sing really loud in the shower, just in case talent scouts for the show were passing by our house.
I drive a 1965 HD Holden named Harriet. We've been together longer than I have been with Duncan!

We got to see Cataract Gorge on a somewhat chilly day but it never fails to make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The great outdoors does indeed feel great at this little gem of a spot. The peacocks were disappointingly unaccomodating with the plume fan out thingy whatsit despite my attempts at a faux mating dance (that's faux - I am interested in Duncans not peacocks, in case you thought you had been tricked into reading a kinky blog). That's the mainlanders bottom right (don't mention the war - I mean the Geelong Beanie) But my third and final excuse for blog neglect is this ...
My little girl is now a walking adventurer. She is off and racing and that meant lapping up the sun at the park and making our first daisy chains
and unfortunately the battery died before I could get a pic of Edie eating her first daisy chain but she tells me it was yum. Dinny would have told her that dandelions would make her wet the bed! I hope spring is as springy for you all xx

I've been tagged! by Ethel Loves Fred to do the 'if meme'. I have to list 5 things that could have changed your life. Link the person who tagged you, tag 5 others.
Let's give this a whirl... have to say I am finding it a little difficult
If I hadn't got morning sickness I may still be living in the UK taking weekenders to Budapest and Rome
If I hadn't got that spiral perm I would not have an album full of photos of my first overseas adventure with the straight regrowth look... mmm noice!
If I hadn't of had Edie I would never know that your heart could grow even bigger over night
If I had've listened to reason I would be back at work and better off financially but completely gutted to be missing out on seeing Edie's firsts
If I had of had greater confidence in my abilities I would be a glam rockstar playing to huge stadium crowds (with large platforms, big hair and short sparkly numbers)
OK here you are - you're tagged!
sadie and lance
sheeps clothing - news from the flock
vintage and vegan
the ruth spoon

Which brings me to pressies - I got a voucher and I have decided to spend it on undies. You see Edie has developed a penchant for picking my undies out of the clean washing or dryer and wearing them on her head or around her neck. It is always my undies, never her dad's. But the sad thing is - well they are really on their last legs. They are completely 'I just don't care anymore' smalls. Some even have holes. They are the type you have to hang behind larger items on the washing line in case visitors spy them. Man, I used to be a 'only wear the ones that match your bra' kind of girl. The girl has documented right before me my fall from underwear grace. So I am heading to that department store armed with my wee voucher and I am going to get me some spectacular underdungers to accompany my slow slide into 40 (and which Edie can accessorise with without shame).
