for those who don't want to just wait it out

like the song says this is a blog for someone who wants to say something (anything) and who's happy to wait and see what time will bring...

These are a few of my favourite things

This one's for "The Blogger Team"...

In a world where too often we dredge ourselves up out of bed, weary from weekends and wary of what is to come the question must be asked - How can Monday mornings be great? Well, normally they start for me with good Bourke St Bakery coffee but this particular morning my buzz came from the great (and only slightly idolatrous) delight of having my new baby delivered in the form of a 15inch Mac Book Pro. I am in love...


It was a weekend filled with two of my favourite ladies. First up Pen and I watched "Becoming Jane" (terrible movie - like "Titanic" or "Romeo and Juliet" you spend the whole time waiting to see just how exactly it is that the main characters end up alone and without love) and then spent Sunday arvo at Luna Park.It was so much fun! As you can see here, Liv had her first ride on a carousel, although she seemed somewhat dubious about the whole thing... and it was a great afternoon to just wander around and try and look at everything with the fresh eyes of a child. To just delight in the sensory overload of colours, sounds and the sweet smell of fairy floss. Of course the cynical eyes were also able to take in the wearied parents, the cigarette butts and the temper tantrums of little ones who couldn't cope with the excitement.

I had the excitement though of getting the chance to start to get over my dislike of snakes and had a python wrapped around my neck (ok trust me - it looks littler here than what it really was!). Just as I was asking the woman if the snakes get cranky being passed around (she said "yes - but they try and hide") this guy tried to make his way under my top... not an experience I'll run to again but it was worth it. They're surprisingly soft and silky to touch but there was that weird feeling of helplessness as he wound himself around me and I was too nervous to try and direct him elsewhere...

But now I am going to continue to discover the delights of my new metallic baby!

    Mac laptops are sweet aren't they.

    I cannot BELIEVE you had a python around your neck! Kudos! Kudos! Kudos!

    There is still much enmity between the serpant and this woman....
