Exciteable descriptions of a new life living in "The Best Place on Earth". The new template is more basic, more classy, tidier... so totally not me!

9:17 a.m. - Weekend of burnt shoulders and gardening-leg.

On Saturday we went to the Peach City Beach Cruise to hang out with the petrol-heads. We didn’t take the Toad because she’s not really a hot rod or a low-rider. Hubby bought some paint though and started painting her blue on Sunday. Meanwhile, I planted out the last of the flowers in either pots or the garden and the weather is obliging and raining on them and the cow poo that I applied.

Last night we watched, “Men with Brooms” – a kind of “Brassed Off” meets Nova Scotia comedy about 4 members of a curling team whose coach dies and leaves a legacy that they put his ashes in a curling stone and win the golden broom award for the town. Traditional levels of romance, intrigue and moral values. Good Sunday evening stuff. On Saturday night we watched “Spanglish”. I wasn’t really keen on doing that as I’ve heard it’s a bit of a heart-wrencher but actually found it brilliant without being too icky and very spot-on, having experienced living with families whose mother tongue and cultures are not my own – being involved, yet an observer at the same time.

Well, off to work, then time for a change of template I feel, to get rid of this problem I am experiencing!
