Day 3707 - Buying big, sight unseen

Have you ever bought furniture online?


It's December (no shit Sherlock), I'm leaving the house at 7.30am each day and not returning until 7.30, 8.30, 9.30, 10.30 at night.  I'm at work all day.  Fitting in my extra projects of an evening.  We've bought a house.  We're selling a house.  It's Christmas.  There's some pretty serious festivities to behold.  There's just no freakin' time to go shopping.

Day 3700 - The sunshine ring

What's in a ring?


On 1 December 2009 I wrote this post.  It's the post about losing the diamond out of my engagement ring.  I've been "ringless" ever since.

Until yesterday.

Day 3686 - One upon a time ...

The story of a queen and her new castle. 


Once upon a time the queen decided she needed a new castle. Not that there was anything wrong with her old castle. In fact it was one of the most prized castles in the land suburb street lot. She required the new castle because it was her dream to keep the royal family close without falling over their enormous shoes each time she walked from her throne the toilet to the parlour lounge room.

Day 3679 - Total Control

Who watched Australia's newest drama?


Photo borrowed from ABC iView
This year I was lucky to step out of my comfort zone and undertake some extras work in a locally filmed TV series.  Which proves you are never too old to try new things.  #fiftyistotallythenewthirty

Total Control, staring Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths, is a political drama set in Canberra which gave T and I the opportunity to dip our toes in the television waters to become fuzzy blurs in the hallways of Parliament House.

Day 3672 - A Deep Fried Update

What's going on in the land of the Deep Fried?


It seems it's been a while since you've had a Deep Fried Update. While you know about the Deep Fried Festival of 50 adventures you're probably at a bit of a loss as to what has been happening in "the real world".  So here we go, a Deep Fried Update.

Day 3665 - The British Virgin Islands

Have you been to the Caribbean?


As you know I've been having a very big Festival of Fifty which took us to the Caribbean recently. I've promised to write about the British Virgin Islands and give it the attention it deserves.  As I sit here madly blogging on the morn of my 21st wedding anniversary with wringing wet hair and some peak hour traffic to tackle in the next half an hour, I'm still not sure I'm giving the BVI's the attention I had hoped, but at least I can give you a photo album of turquoise splender.

Day 3658 - What are you thoughts on Halloween in Australia?

What does Halloween mean to me?


Choosing pumpkins in Pennsylvania
To be honest, not a lot.  I can take it or leave it.

Day 3651 - The beauty of black and white photos

Let's go grey scale


My cousin challenged me to a black and white photo a day on Facebook.  To show elements of my daily life with the colour stripped away.

I have to be honest - I loved it.

Day 3644 - The Festival of Fifty Big Five Oh

What time is it? DISCO TIME! 


All you're getting from me today is a great big PARTY which relived my childhood and teen years in true disco fashion.

Let's just say the party was exactly as I'd hoped it would be. Colourful, loud and a total throwback to a life many decades ago so that I could fully celebrate and be proud of how far I have come in the last 50 years.
