Ringing in the new year with a cup of tea, a bowl of cereal, Movie Ticket Radio and Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries.  When did I become such a nana (albeit a rockin' one)?

Thanks to my lovely friend Lotta in Sweden for this one... love it!

Aaron Tveit really was the best thing about Les Miserables.  Anne Hathaway a close second.  Underwhelmed by Hugh and downright loathed Russell... their singing was pants.

A little shouty and some dodgy accents, but War Horse is absolutely beautiful.  Incredible puppetry and amazing effects.

My work life is about to get very busy... and not in a good way.

A sleep-in, a lovely lunch with my cousins and the Downton Abbey Christmas Special.  Fab boxing day.*




* Except Downton reduced me to tears yet again with their storyline.  Nooooooo!!!

Doesn't matter how many times I've seen Home Alone it still makes me giggle.

LB's making me watch Carols by Candlelight. Karl Stefanovic makes me want to puke.

My family clearly know my favourite city in the world... my lovely cousin made me these cushions for Christmas!

A big day driving to Ballarat to visit the rellies... I. Am. Cream. Crackered.

Friday, 21 December 2012

So glad I put my foot down and abandoned work for an hour tonight to go to the gym... not so glad I had to go back afterwards to finish off the mountain of work piling up.

Christmas is less than a week away and I feel bizarrely calm and organised.  Weird.

A morning of pain having laser at the dermatologist followed by an afternoon of fun watching Girls, drinking chai and dancing in the kitchen with Kate.  Happy Tuesday.

It completely throws me when my work day is so busy that I have to cancel my yoga class.  On so many levels... the only cure is an early night.

Our little production of Compleat Female Stage Beauty won best production at the awards ceremony today... woohooo! What an awesome show we made.

The world is a fucked-up place sometimes... RIP beautiful souls of Newtown, CT.

Sometimes there is no better way to spend a Friday night than by taking advantage of technology (thanks Google+!) to have a group chat with your awesome mates in Edinburgh and New York City.  ♥♥

House clean.
Laundry done.
Filing up-to-date.
I think I've about procrastinated enough...

Don't be fooled by the rocks that she's got... she's just Jenny from the block. Except she's been sequinned and feathered and bejewelled.

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

A wonderful catch up lunch with another old London chum who I haven't seen in twelve years... we both agree that we look exactly the same... it's very reassuring!

My yoga instructor's constant referrals to herself in the third person make me snort with laughter. It's not very zen.

Technically media deprivation is over tomorrow morning, but I couldn't take it any more. Six and a half days is enough and I think I've done reasonably well considering I'm such a media-addict... I've not turned on the TV, picked up a book or read HuffPost even once!

Sarah Silverman at the Palais. Four rows from the stage, right in the centre. Effing. Amazeballs.

Friday, 7 December 2012

Work, pilates, quick run on the treadmill, dinner at the taco truck and an evening of design market shopping with the lovely Bridget. A fine way to spend a Friday!

Writing my Christmas cards... this year I've gone the inappropriate route...



Wednesday, 5 December 2012

The occasional slip-up, but not doing too badly on day three.  Powered through a bunch of stuff at work and then hit the gym for a pilates class plus a session on the treadmill and still made it home by 7.15pm!

Media Deprivation Day 2.  Easy morning - an awesome two-and-a-half hour conversation with the lovely Goldos.  Late afternoon/evening has been more challenging... it's not cheating if I listened to Movie Ticket Radio for a good portion of the time is it?  It's not TALK radio - just songs - and it's managed to prevent me from beating my head against wall in sheer frustration at the lack of social networking.

Monday, 3 December 2012

Day 1 of Media Deprivation.  Allowing myself 10 minutes each morning and evening to check emails and update the blog but otherwise, it's a banned substance.  Doing ok so far... SO FAR.  Ask me again tomorrow.

Sunday, 2 December 2012

A morning at work being yelled at by crazed Wiggles parents. Ugh.
An afternoon with friends drinking wine, eating cheese and making each other laugh.  Awesome.

Saturday, 1 December 2012

It's all about the little things... like the sheer joy and delight on the face of my neighbour's two-year-old when I gave him a bunch of blue hydrangeas from my balcony.  You're so right, Hayden.  Flowers ARE cool.
