Sorry if you thought this post would be kinky. But the bedroom antics is just me updating our bedroom with a new doonah and pretty little goodies. Red is my favourite colour and I twisted Hubbies arm and he let me get the bright red retro doonah, I so love it. Only problem is that the next doonah that we get he gets to choose Yikes!!! Yes thats baby cat at the end of the bed again, any photos of my bed that I have put on my blog he appears in.

So Naughty!

I made this last week and it's so yummy that I had to share it with you girls.

Banana Pudding
395 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups of ice cold water
100g packet instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups of thickened cream
500g savoiardi biscuits (sponge biscuits)
4 cups sliced ripe bananas

Place the sweetened milk and water in a bowl and beat together on medium speed for about 1 minute then add the pudding mix and beat for 2 minutes. Place in the fridge for 3-4 hours or even overnight.

Whip the cream on medium speed until it has stiff peaks. Gently fold in the pudding mixture until well blended.

To assemble desert use large wide bowl with a 4 1/2 litre capacity. Spread a little of the pudding mixture on the base and arrange 1/3 of the biscuits over the bottom of the bowl. Overlapping if necessary. Layer with bananas and 1/3 of the pudding mixture. Repeat layering twice more finishing with a lovely layer of pudding mix. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and allow to chill for 4-8 hours.

Up, Up and Away

It may have been a very early start yesterday being 3am but it was so worth it. I can now tick Hot Air Ballooning of my list of things to do. It was so beautiful and peaceful, my favourite part was being in the clouds and not being able to see anything else around you apart from clouds. Not as romantic as I imagined it to be with 20 people in the basket with us, but still the most enjoyable experience!

Bunny Swap

Hi Girls I have been thinking of doing a Bunny swap for Easter. Since lots of us love second hand shopping I was thinking we could buy a ceramic bunny of some sorts for no more than $5 and then we can send it onto our swap partner. Please email me at if you are keen to join this swap, also leave your postal address so I can pass this on to your bunny partner.
The swap:
* Each participant will be given the address to send their bunny to and you may receive a address overseas so heads up it may cost. So basically you send a bunny and hopefully if all goes to plan you should receive a bunny.

* If we do end up with a odd number I will post 2 bunnies so nobody misses out.

* This swap is international and any followers can participate, regardless of location.

* Sign ups for the swap will close on Saturday the 17Th of March, I will email you the details of your partners soon afterwards and then you will have to post your Bunny to your partner by no later than the 24Th of March to give ample time for postage.

* If I've left anything out or if you have any questions feel free to send me an email

I've lost my Mojo

Hi Girls. Im so sorry I have been so slack lately I have been a little bit down in the dumps. Ever since my friend has passed away I keep thinking about how both of us hated our Customer Service jobs and how we both wanted to make a change but we didnt know what we both wanted to do. Im still stuck in the same rutt but I think it is effecting me more at the moment. Please excuse my lack of posting and commenting as I am just sorting my life out.

These are just a few photos of some of my Besties and me, we were celebrating Brendon's 39th Birhtday. Brendon being my friend who just passed away recently. We couldnt let the day pass with out celebrating and we know that Brendon would have been there with us singing and dancing and drinking way to many Vino's.
