Is this healthy?

At the ripe old age of seven, Briar Rose has attended her first ever makeover party at a local party venue. Just check out their "products catalogue" for some great tips on making your child look like a working girl.


But, of course, nothing could make Briar Rose anything but beautiful - not even an oversized pink suede cowboy hat *with* a tiara attached!

And such a brilliant idea - they hold their parties in their shop, so that when you come to collect your little princess she's ready to present you with her very own wishlist. Really.

And can you believe they ran out of kitten ears with only two children? If you're only going to offer four "looks", surely it's not too much to ask that you actually stock them all in reasonable quantities? Posted by Picasa

TV is the opiate of the masses

Otherwise known as the July 2006 photo ;).

This is what we look like on a Friday night in winter! Kind of cosy all snuggled up together - as well as the futon couch we're sitting on, the family room has a 3 seater, 2 seater and a rocking chair - so it's nice to know that we like sitting together.

Oh, that's right - the green couch has the best view of the idiot box! Note roomba peeking out from under the couch and a trace of brown dog on the floor in the foreground. Posted by Picasa

June - Photo of the Month!

And what happened to the blog, you ask? Mothers' Day!!! My wonderful DH gave me a simply gorgeous tiny compact new digital camera with a simply enormous memory card! So far, so good - except that it took me three months to then work out how to transfer photos from my camera to my laptop!

So, here we are - My toddler with the Ginger Ninja at a hotel in Sydney. A matching pair. Posted by Picasa
