Weekend Update

We had our BBQ housewarming last night which was very sucessfull and Steve is nursing a major hangover today. Everything went well and everyone seemed to have a really good time. Whoever is sending me picture messages... don't bother. My LG Chocolate Mobile Phone has been sent away as the screen is playing up. I have an ancient nokia "loaner-phone" till it gets back. Its even got a green and black screen... so I can't see pic messages. It's also very hard to hear, the speakers aren't that great. ... [ Discover More ]

Redken Rocks!!!

I finally had my hair appointment this afternoon... yayness. I have been waiting MONTHS. I had a very bad cut and had to wait ages for it to grow long enough to cut it correctly.I decided to try another salon, this time one that is recomended by Redken as I love thier products. "LM Sytles"... pretty boring name but oh so perfect. They were exactly who I was looking for. My stylist name is Lou and HE is great. Yep, I got me a man and I adore him. Funnily enough he's a middle aged italian man and ... [ Discover More ]

Games Games Games

Steve and I got our PlayStations off LayBy on Wednesday!!! Soooo much fun. We both lost our voices playing SingStar Rocks :P In the morning I put it on and have a little sing and boogie :D I also bought 2 different Spyro games for $19ea from BigW... loving it. Yes I know I need to dust. Steve got his PSP and I must say I was impressed with it. He bought 2 games, Over the Hedge and Family Guy... I like them both hehehe.

Busy Hands

This is our new Buffet!!! Steve and I went into GoLo to buy a small cheap TV Unit for the spare room and ended up finding this for $149.00, I was so surprised. They had a matching TV Unit but we couldn't justify that much $$ for something that will be stached away in a room thats hardly used. But I HAD to hve the buffet. It was the last one left. Its the same colour as the China Cabinet and the handles match exactly!!! This is its new home in the Dining Room... it looks so fabulous :D Mind you, ... [ Discover More ]

House Warming

On Saturday we will be having a small housewarming BBQ with Steve's workmates, all of whom you met at the wedding (except Gloria, cos she had to leave the country and leave me all alone :P). Anyway... :)Alice and I were shopping in Freedom at Penrith and I saw this beautiful blue jug. I fell in love and grabbed it up straight away. Then to my surprise Alice snatched it off me and said "I'll buy it for your housewarming gift". Awesome! Thanks Alice :D ... [ Discover More ]

Payless Shoes

I think I might have scored myself a job...Alice and I went shopping in Richmond on Wednesday and Alice wanted to try some shoes on at Payless Shoes. I think were were in there at least half an hour, prancing around in crazy coloured, ultra high heels. I didn't end up buying anything but Alice bout two very funky pair of heels.Anyway, the sales assistant was very nice and we were all chatting at the register. As we were leaving I noticed a POSITION VACANT sign and thought "what the hell". So I ... [ Discover More ]

Lazy Sunday

Saturday was easy enough, cleaning and then an afternoon watching the National Geographic DVDs Dad sent me.Today we had a sleep in, had breakfast and decided to weed the front garden. Yep, weed. We looked like a very happy little family to everyone who walked by.Imagine it. The blue picket fence, the young couple mending thier home with their two adorable labradors playing beside them in the sun and ... [ Discover More ]

Surprises

What is that I see? By Gosh!!! I believe I'm the proud owner of a...MULLBERRY TREEWhoooooooopppeeeeeeee!!!!Grandma Henessey had a MASSIVE tree out the back of her place. When Stephanie and I were little we'd climb up and pick all the berries. I'm sure we had more in our tummies than in the bowl mum gave us :DI can't believe it, I had no idea. The tree is pretty huge and shelters the front of the house. It's only just starting to fruit. I hope the birds don't steal them all!!! **edited to add - I ... [ Discover More ]

Apple, looks tasty

So whilst I've been waiting in between burning CDs I've been browsing the Apple website. Just a little bit of investigating into Mac's, whats available and all that jazz. Right now the no virus thing is looking fabulous :D With the posibility of Uni I was looking to upgrade our software and maybe adding more space to our HD. While going over the Sydney College of Fine Arts website I noticed that they work with Macs and works need to be compatible. Bugger upgrading a PC. So I've been looking at ... [ Discover More ]

Husbands + Broadband + Unsupervised = BAD

Whilst I was away in Darwin we "somehow" managed to "catch" a couple of trojans and the odd virus... "somehow". So I've spent all of today scanning and deleting and re-filing and shredding things on my computer. Now I'm sloooooooooooooooooowly burning my entire harddrive ont CDs, yes, CDs. We don't have and DVD-Rs, they "somehow" disapeared. Now you might have realised by now, being viewers of my blog that i have an infinate number of photographs. It's taking FOR-EV-ER!!!

High School Dramas

I was innocently unpacking the odd box around the house and stumbled across my treasure chest of high school memories. A box of scrap note paper you could easily throw away at a glance... but if you look closer you realise it's the minds and personalites of several young teenage girls captured in time. Priceless. The note above is to me from Jenny about Marcus (my highschool love). It broke my heart that day when I read it in the schoolyard and even as I took it out of the box and unfolded it ...

Fly on a MarbleFor all you people who had no idea what I was talking about when it came to this piece, I hope you now understand why I love it... it's just so odd.

LoveSeat

We bought a balinese love seat on Saturday. It sits as the end of our bed and I love it. It'll make great extra seating at parties as well. I know the colour doesn't match the colour of the bed but I just HAD to have it :) In the room we have a closet thats the same colour as the LoveSeat so it's not all bad. Yay to new furniture :D ...
