Do You Want To See What Fear Looks Like????


 It's funny how things change as you get older. When I was a kid I used to be the one who would climb the highest in a tree, jump of the highest things and I had no fear. I really don't know what has happened to me, I now get dizzy and clammy and don't feel comfortable at all on anything over a metre off the ground. I thought I would be fine doing the Q1 which is the highest sky rise on the Gold Coast. Obviously safety is paramount and you are all harnessed in but it still scared me.

 It was a beautiful view from the top and our host did such a great job of pointing things out to us. With it also being whale season we saw lots of Whales in the distance. I'm acting all cool calm and collected on the photo below, my acting skills are truly amazing.

 Look no hands!!!

These last two photos make me laugh. There was a pose to do where you let go of your harness, squatted and leaned back. This pose was not for me as my legs were shaking so much and I never let go of my harness or the side rail at anytime. Then our host said to pretend to push my friends off the edge. It was funny because miraculously for a photo I could take both hands off the harness and pretend to push them. The things you do for a photo. I hope you all have had a lovely week and enjoy your weekend xxx

Orphan Black





Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah. After witnessing a woman's suicide, Sarah assumes the stranger's identity - who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman's savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth - she and the dead woman are clones. As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there - genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she'll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one. 


 

 
Tatiana Maslany who is the main character who plays all of the clones is absolutely amazing. Each clone is likeable in their own way, I even have a soft spot for Helena the crazy clone. I was addicted to this series straight away and cant wait for series 3. If you haven't watched it I promise that you won't be disappointed. If you already watch let me know who your favourite clone is and why.

Party In The Park


 Our house backs onto a park and we never use it so we decided to have our Birthday party in the park this year . It was a huge success amongst my friends with kids and my friends without kids. We had volleyball/badminton net, totem tennis, Frisbee and soccer. All good clean fun for every age group.

 My friend Nicci made Jeremy, Mario cupcakes and she made me Sunflower cup cakes. They were so delicious and she did such a amazing job. I was only allowed to take one photo of the sunflower cakes as she wasn't happy with how they looked because they had melted a little bit. I really didn't care I thought they looked amazing, we all know how much I love sunflowers.

 Jeremy cooked on the BBQ a massive sausage sizzle and I got fondled by me cheeky friend. Did I say good clean fun, it was good clean fun until this shot.
 One of my older friends Margaret showed me some really cool moves with the hoola hoop she was amazing on the hoop. It really surprises me the secret talents that some people have. I loved that she got up and showed all young one's how to do it.
The badminton was also a lot of fun, unfortunately I am really unco when playing but I still gave it a go and had a good laugh in the process. I hope you all had a lovely weekend xxx

I Want, I Want, I Want!!!!!!





 How cute are these brooches from Thousand Island Dressing. In winter I always have a brooch attached to my coats. This year unfortunately I have none as they were all stolen when I got broken into. I forgot all about my brooches when I put my insurance claim in, so it's a little to late to claim on them now. So I am on a mission to start a new collection of brooches to brighten my dull winter coats. I am majorly crushing on the fox. Which one is your favourite?

Miss Muddy

I started my one week holiday off with a bang by doing the Miss Muddy Obstacle Course. It's a 5km course of madness. Considering it's winter here and it was a freezing cold day, it didn't stop us. We went through ice pits, got hosed by firemen, ran through water and played in a lot of mud. If Miss Muddy comes to your area I highly recommend it. We are not fit and did all of the course and had a lot of laughs along the way.


Oh by the way on some blogs at the moment I cant leave comments. So please don't think I am being a snob, it's just when I hit the comment button nothing happens. If anyone knows how I can fix this can you please let me know. Enjoy your week xxx

Super Hero Training School


 Last weekend it was our Goddaughters 4th Birthday. My Bestie organised a massive obstacle course as a Super Hero Training School and all the kids got certificates at the end. There was 50 children and it was quite a full on day. Kids and sugar equals HYPO!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a photo of the beautiful Birthday Girl!!!




 My Bestie did so well with all the food. I haven't posted any photos of the kids I didn't know as I know how some parents are about having their children on the internet.


 This is our beautiful little angel in the dress that we bought her for her birthday. As soon as she opened our present the Wonder Woman costume came off and our present went on. So nice to know that she loved her present.
This last shot is very late in the night when it was just family and close friends. Have a look at all of her presents on the chair behind us, she is a very lucky girl. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, it is certainly winter here at the moment. I am freezing!!!!!
