Ok. In keeping with my you tube weekends I was inspired while watching "The Great Outdoors" while settling in for a night in front of the TV with my friend Alicia - Bride and Prejudice is on TV....yes - if my mother had anything to do with it I'd be out finding a suitable husband tonight- but winter calls for trackie pants and red wine in front of the TV on a Saturday night.. Now HERE is a PKB in full flight. Tom Williams rocks my roundabout. The sound on this video is SO BAD, sounds like you are listening to it underwater but hey, I haven't downloaded the video for the music..... enjoy ladies x
The parents of my beautiful god daughter Ruby love Clare Bowdtich. About a year ago while Holly was pregnant we were driving to the Clare Valley to visit her father listening to Clare's CD. This song came on - and its great. Whenever I hear it I think of the excitement we all felt about meeting this new little one and how amazing it was that they were starting a family. I hope you enjoy too, you'll be humming it all weekend! x

This is a "love song dedication" - Emma and I aren't quiet in our love for Irish band Westlife (what is it about Ireland and awesome bands? - my all time favourite is U2). Actually - Emma is more vocal about it than me. Just. When we shared a gorgeous cottage in North Adelaide together about 6-7 years ago we used to make up dance routines to their songs in hallway - and then inflict them on unsuspecting dinner party guests. We've been known to survive a whole trip home from Melbourne to Adelaide on a Westlife CD single (the karaoke version of the song provided us a chance to belt out our best rendition of the song) - recently we nearly wet ourselves on the couch watching them perform at the Logies - I proceeded to download the song onto my facebook site and ipod and Emma programmed it to be the ring tone on her mobile and went out and bought their CD. Which comes to the reason for this post (I get there eventually...) -Emma announces to me that the album comes with a bonus DVD of the wembley concert, complete with their cover of "dont cha" by the pussycat dolls. She was particularly excited by their gyrating, hip thrusting pelvic movements during the performance. Going through my CD/DVD's on the weekend I realise shock horror (damn, what a shame....) I still have this bonus DVD at my house and Emma has since left the state for work. So, I'm sending you the best bits of the DVD via this post. I've studied the clip carefully and if you need to just fast forward to the hip thrusting parts they appear at the following time intervals....2:15min, 2:50min, 3:07min, 3:55min and 4:10min(this particular gyrate involves the line dancing country hoe down kick!!) - after all, what are friends for!! xx
So - if the PKB turns up anytime soon I'd like to be prepared. For the wedding that is. Flicking through the brilliant array of international magazines one Saturday morning with Emma at Marmalade I came across a picture of this STUNNING CREATURE. Behold my wedding dress. The dress is actually a stunning muted mustard yellow colour - the above photo washes it out a bit. I'd probably have it made in ivory or champagne. But I could easily go the yellow. And I'd wear it short.
I can't remember where I found this photo on the Internet so sorry for not acknowledging its original source. But does anyone know what this dress is called/where I can get better photos of it? I've searched high and low and I know it featured in a book about Lanvin. Like I said, it is a matter of great importance, I'm not sure how much time I have, you never know when I might meet PKB.....
