Under construction

Just to let you know I am aware and on top of some cosmetic changes around these parts. A blog make over is cheaper than a nose job.

If I was....

A fashionable man, I would alternate between these three looks.
Not everyone can pull off white jeans, but girls dig a nice forearm in a scruffy trainer...

One of the best

My favourite Film is My Brilliant Career. Set in the 1890's in rural NSW it is a story of Sybylla Melvyn (Judy Davis) a young woman who is sent to live with her Grandmother during a devastating drought when her family can no longer afford to keep her without an income. Sybylla has wild crazy red hair. This would be me if I lived in the 1890's - so I can relate.

Away from her family's poverty, Sybylla reunites with family friend Harry Beecham, and a strong friendship forms instantly. Tragically they fall in love but crazy Sybylla "has to go find herself" and ends up finding she doesn't want to be with the alarmingly handsome Harry. I'm sure ten years later she regrets this.. Just sayin'.

I love this movie so much and yet every time I watch I hope hope hope right up to the end that the plot will magically change and they will get married and live at shiny Five Bob Downs*.

Can I hear an Amen for Sam Neil in a white bow tie.......

If you've never seen this movie, go rent it. I've basically told you the plot but its so romantic and there is the great Jerusalem singing moment when I allways cry. Ok now I've told you all the good bits.

*Five Bob Downs is Harry Beecham's amazing rural property. Just like Pemberley.
You can watch the trailer here.
In other news my husband has developed a whistling snore which is quite irritating and yet soothing at the same time. Weird right?

W is for

How about this for a romantic first kiss?
I've been on hiatus this last 8 days (yes I've been counting). I can report that I am now wisdom teeth - less and my face is black and blue. I haven't left my house for a week. There has been apartment fever. I'm sick of watching tv. That's saying alot. Just sayin.
There has been pain. And then some. But I have made use of my spare time between sleep/ being unconscious from drugs and crying/ moaning. And I have been researching. Wedding details. Just for my friend.

I came across this beautiful wedding from a lovely photographer in the US.
