Due to illness, injury and some unfortunate personal circumstances, I found over the last two years I have become a hermit.
Friday nights is traditionally stay at home with Benny and watch movies night. Saturday nights, often the same.
However I have furthered friendships with some pretty amazing people, through sport.
I have been spending a lot of time with some of the girls from my hockey club, namely Bianca and Kirst and they are doing their best to get me back up to speed.. Sometimes three times in one week!
Otherwise it’s the lovely ladies I know from surfing. The likes of Larissa, Amy and Briony.
JUST AS EXCITING, my best friend Sarah has finally flown back from India. It’s good to have her back after nearly three long months.
So good to see her face all the time. Oh and the HUGS!
Next weekend is our traditional Girls Hen’s Weekend down south, as Clare gets married in a few weeks.
Just the original crew, who I have been doing life with, since I moved to Australia.. back when we were all scrawny teenagers.
Clare, Sarah, Chantelle and Jess… It’s going to be amazing!

Currently listening to Mgmt - The Youth

So my brother finally had his engagement party, and it really was a good night out.
Everyone dressed up, the theme was orange and white, and I got commissioned to make over 100 orange and vanilla cupcakes to match the theme. All vegan of course.
Now, Greg’s fiance Gayle, is a dance school teacher, and most of her friends are dancers, so you can imagine the quality of rug cutting that went on.
The quote of the night, by one of Greg’s workmates, in reference to Gayle’s friends.
“Well boys, with a show like this, who needs to go to the strip club after”
Look who made it in the news…. Bowls….
What a game!
It's gotta be yellow
The Opening Seasonal Party for the Wasps.
It was a beautiful night.
Up in the hills in 3/4 acres of property where my friends resides.
We had to wonder through the bush scattered with hanging fairy lights to guide our way onto the tennis court, which had been converted into a reception area.
Hanging balls of white light, long white tables, and newly put together wooden benches.
It’s an awesome brand new built double storey three bedroom house in a really nice neighbourhood south south of the city.
We have a park right outside of the new house, and a garden (what’s up my new dog to come;).
So to celebrate this, and the fact that I am getting older and having another birthday (gulp), we are having a nice lil shindig.
Barbeque, food, music, good times, some sports etc..
Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you deserve an invite
(Sorry, I’m not posting where I will be living for everyone to see)
So it was a short and sweet trip. Arrive Friday, Leave Sunday.
Really cheap flights via Jetstar. I’m talking about 190 return. You can normally pay up to 600 one way.
The catch, two people have to travel.
So I dragged my lil brother along (for those playing at home, he’s a lot taller than me and weighs more too)
I barely took in any photos, we didn’t get to catch up with everyone we wanted to, but we did have fun.
Oh boy did we shop.
Turns out that was my brother’s agenda for the whole weekend.
Here are some snaps.

Mmmmm. I iz Russian.
Partied with these kids, God knows what I'm doing in the background.
I could barely walk after the weekend, and still show the evidence of my barefooted walk 12 blocks through melbourne at 3 in the morning with blisters all over them. Gross
So it was Stevie’s birthday. Hurray. Always a good time to gather and have fun.
We did the whole dinner thing, and then there was cake.
Joel the up and coming male nurse (as made popular on youtube) made the cake. I did not eat the cake, nor get hit by flying bits of said cake, however I did admire it, and watch it being devoured.
I’m related to a moron. My brother overdosed on party blowers. I live with that.
This was also the night were were introduced to Tommy Wiseau. More about him later. Mwaa haa ha.
