Here is a quick recap of this week’s highlights:
I am crushing on this song this week. I heard it on the promo for Winners and Losers then again on iTunes Radio that I was listening to at work. I’ve seen Paloma perform on The Graham Norton Show and she’s pretty amazing. I like this song; it sounds a bit 60s with some Motown thrown in. Love it 🙂
Saturday Morning Footy
I do enjoy my son’s footy season but I must admit I like when it’s coming to a close. Only a few games left and then it’s over for another year. I don’t think my boy will ever be an Eagle but man, does he love being part of the team. He’s such a gentle soul my Fletcher so he’s a very timid player and doesn’t use half as much strength on the footy field as I know he has. I don’t care. He’s happy which makes me happy. And that’s all that matters at the end of the day.
Oh how I love rainy days. They’re even better when you’re cosy inside watching a good movie. Or hanging out in bed with a good book.
One of the best things in life is having time with the girls. I’m lucky to have lots of lovely ladies in my life: my beautiful mum and sisters; girlfriends from primary school; school mums; extended friends and family members. Last night six of us spent a lovely Friday evening learning about everything makeup – being colour matched and trying on some awesome products. We even dabbled in some champagne. Very girly indeed.
I’m lucky that my two treasures get on so well. Very rarely do they argue, and when they do they get over it pretty quickly. Even though they deny it, they truly are best friends. I look forward to watching them grow up, hanging out with each other’s friends, maybe dating a few. It’s all so exciting.
Speaking of Offspring …
I truly am besotted with this show. I’ve watched it from Season One and it just keeps getting better and better. Seasoned actors like John Waters and Deb Mailman make the show amazing and Asher Keddie who plays Nina – well, what can I say? I want her home, I want her fashion sense, I want to be a Proudman! It’s a fantastic Australian show that really sucks you in week after week and when Patrick died, that just floored me. It was like I lost a real person in my life. Truly heartbreaking.
I’m also loving The Time of Our Lives on ABC1. Another fantastic Australian show with an amazing cast. This too is one of my faves. If you haven’t seen it, then “do yourself a favour” as they say.
All Things Food
I baked on Monday. I don’t bake as often as I like but when I do, I bake all day. My daughter will try just about anything but it’s totally wasted on my son. He’s just way too fussy. But that’s okay – I was really really fussy when I was young so I know he’ll grow out of it. I still am fussy to an extent but I’m definitely getting better.
So overall, it was a pretty good week. The hubby’s home next week and we’ve got a few things planned, plus some other stuff for good measure. How was your week?
