A List..... 10 REALLY personal things (because I don't think my blog is very personal at all!) 1) I wet the bed untill I was 13 years old (yikes!!!) 2) I don't like prawns (at all - cooked any way you like) 3) We conceived our child via IVF 4) I love my own child, but am (generally) not that keen on other peoples!! 5) I like to drink beer AND smoke (at the same time no less!!!) 6) I hide my freckles with foundation 7) I worry about my foundation making me look older than I am 8) I worry that I won't be able to drink beer and smoke when I'm old and in a nursing home 9) I worry that this whole blog business is a bit on the vain side 10) I will never let a Bratz Doll into my house - ever!!! NB: At least 4 of these items could change on any given day! (cept for #'s 1,2,3 and 6!!)

2 Paintings I'm proud to own 1) Jenny Gow's 'Persophene' 2) Paula Bannan's 'Ancestors' Both oil on canvass. We bought these both from an Art Gallery in Byron Bay, both artists are originally from Sydney (Paula Bannan was short listed for the Blake Prize 2004), for a further squizz at some really fine art, check out the website: www.byronfineart.com.au

What to do on a rainy day part 2...pinny4's three Somehting like 5 days of rain in Sydney, cleared today, I quite like the colder, rainyer weather, but don't think Miss P enjoyed it that much. I made 3 pinny's for her though, because, well, I'm not going to let mass consummerism dictate to me that I dress her like Paris Hilton! Probably only another year or so left of the pinny - shame really. Not much longer I can trim her things in rick-rack either! Showing a pic of the button detail - buttons are all retro plastic ones, ahh they don't make em like they used to!!

What to do on a rainy day... Raining 'cat-dog' (as Little P says) the only thing to do on a day like this is to keep the minx-ess well and truly amused, so Big D stuck some paper on the wall and drew a huge rocket with Miss P inside (and Kabuki the dog) she loved colouring it in, the novelty will soon wear off, and we will be back to Charlie and Lola DVD soon .... still not a bad way to spend a rainy day!!! Hopefully she will snooze so I can finish her pinni.
