It’s so cold here at the moment but I think that if I had these gorgeous gloves I might even get out of bed! I say might.

Night Owl Baby

There’s always things that people think they need, but when you are expecting a baby, there are things that you MUST have!
Over at nightowlbaby they have a gorgeous range of kids clothes and here’s some cute stuff I need to get my hands on.


There are heaps of designs to choose from, each bright and fun and every piece is made to order so you can expect to wait up to 3 weeks.

I’m Beck Jeck!


It seems I have neglected my poor little blog since before Christmas. Things are pretty flat out here, like always, but I am going to try and get back up and running again!

In between work and looking after the kidlets, it’s hard to find the time (and energy!) to do regular posts, but with another one on the way I think I will have some rest time up my sleeve. Here’s hoping!

Hot and Bothered

My word it is hot! Today’s predicted temperature in most parts of Australia is 35 degrees or higher. Where I am it’s already reached 40 degrees and it’s too damn hot to do anything. I was out shopping earlier and all I wanted to do was head home and sit in the air conditioned comfort and do nothing. Incidently, that it what I am doing now. The cricket is on and I’m enjoying an ice cold glass of water. I Feel Better now.

Hey Rosetta

I’ve been cooking a lot this morning, trying to make up for the fact that I have been pretty slack over the holiday period. I figure by making lots of slices and cakes all at once, it cancels out my slackness.
I’m just hoping they will all be eaten up!! Loud music is needed when I cook and the kitchen was pumping earlier on as I listened to some great tracks by Hey Rosetta (six-piece band from St. John’s, Newfoundland who I was lucky enough to come across last Thursday night at the Northcote Social Club).
Check out these tracks from new their album Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood).

Our Night In Northcote

It’s been a crazy few days! If you have read my earlier post Frightened Rabbit, you will know that Agnes and I went to see one of our all time favourite bands last night. Scottish outfit Frightened Rabbit were everything we imagined, and more!
We decided to hit the merchandise first and just as we were trying on our awesome shirts, we overheard a gorgeous accent and it was most definately Scottish! We looked up to see Scott Hutchison, lead singer and song writer extraordinaire. He introduced himself (and I shook is hand, that’s right, SHOOK HIS HAND!!) and then signed our shirts. We would have been happy to leave then and there, our giggled and gushy convo with Scott had made us so happy and we were so excited! We chose our spot and waited for Frightened Rabbit. 
The Northcote Social Club had never heard anything like it, and as it turns out, neither had Frightened Rabbit. Hutchison talked in between songs and seemed genuinely suprised that people had stayed around to hear them perform.
They sang songs from The Midnight Organ Fight and I was over the moon as I listened to them play The Twist, although the crowd favourites were The Modern Leper and Keep Yourself Warm.
We were happy to hear that other people were singing along to their music (apart from the loud and obnoxious people who stood behind and yelled repeatedly at each other!) and it was clear that everyone had come to see them and were enjoying every moment.
I wont write anymore as I know Anges is forming a post in her mind even as I write this, and she’s soooooo much better at describing the music and setting the scene! Make sure you could keep an eye on her page in the next few days.
Oh and as  Frightened Rabbit say on their Myspace, “Lets keep pop music alive by getting it out of that dress and into a sweater.” On ya guys.

Name That Song

I’ve only got a little bit of time to post tonight so I thought I’d make up a quiz. It’s pretty simple, just guess what songs these lyrics belong to and I’ll comment back with the correct answers. No cheating! Go! Do it NOW!

1. “And the room fills with steam, oh, evaporates, disappears.”

2. “I might go to bed now, I’ve got work in the morning.”

3. “You can love them all and when you’re through, maybe that’ll make, huh, a man out of you.”

4. “And all the roads that lead you there were winding, and all the lights that light the way are blinding.”

5. “And give my love to Angus and to Frank and Dolly, tell ’em all I’m sorry, I screwed up this time.”

6. “A kind of respect and trust that shouldn’t even be questioned, how can I open my heart with dishonesty sitting next to me?”

7. “Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down, we couldn’t destroy a single one.”

8. “There are those of you, who got the wrong idea right now
but man you should of seen me when I got through.”

9. “And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart, only the shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof.”

10. “Could be happy can’t you see, if you’d only let me be the one to hold you.”

Frightened Rabbit

I am so excited I don’t have the words to tell you how excited I am. Agnes and I have just purchased tickets to go and see one of our favourite bands, Frightened Rabbit. I am unsure how we didn’t know they were touring Australia until now, but no matter, we have tickets!!! You have no idea how much I love them, their music is amazing and I am so looking forward to seeing them live! Check out these songs and you’ll soon realise why I love them so much!
