Photos with Lily

While at Bunbury, on our mini holiday, we took a heap of photos of us, Kristie and Dave, and my stepdad Gary with the little Lilster. She was so cute, and we loved babysitting her. A.dor.a.ble!!

Weddings Galore!

Wedding movies seem to be sucking me in this week, and I've been reviewing them over at A Choc Top and Me. I've watched these three:

Made of Honour was my favourite - loved it!

Weekend happenings

We're off for a whirlwind trip down south to Bunbury tomorrow.

And it's our 12th wedding anniversary too!

We're going to have a chance to spend time with the lovely Lily while we are there (babysitting, while Kristie and Dave are at a wedding) and generally having a break from all the house stuff! Our adorable cat, Whiskers (Wicky for short) is staying at the vet's for the weekend as he had to have an op to remove an abcess (poor thing!)

I've got behind on reviews, I know, but there are a couple of new ones at Wise Owl Books, and at A Choc-Top and Me. Let me know if you've read or seen anything lately that you would highly recommend. I'm all for hunting down a great movie or DVD!

Phoneline working again!

I'm back! Sorry I've been away so long, when I'd promised to post every day this month. I had all intentions, but something weird happened to our phoneline last Friday, and it only started working again last night (Tuesday). We have been without phone, internet, and X-Box for 5 days!! Seriously, it felt like a fortnight!

But I have been spending my time watching episode after episode of a great show on Foxtel called Clean House.

In each episode, they help a family clean the clutter out of their house by analysing why it is so cluttered (and believe me the houses are wrecks!), which enables the family to let go of all their 'foolishness'. They then have a garage sale and the money raised goes towards furniture and fittings to help organise and beautify their home. Love it! So I've been making a huge pile of things to go in a garage sale, (but we'll probably take it to a swap meet), and going though all my magazines, that date back to 1993 (shame on me!) I've reorganised most of the back shed, and cleared clutter from nearly all the rooms in the house. Just the study to go. And now there's only two weeks of holiday before I have to go back to work!! Eek!

In other news, I've posted a book review of The Time Traveller's Wife at Wise Owl Books.

Heard about this movie a year or so ago and liked the idea behind it. After much hinting, I got it for Christmas, and have no regrets! Check out my review here.

Day 6 - Mao's Last Dancer

Oh, I'm late for this again! Anyway, this book was magnificent! Check it out at Wise Owl Books.
