back on deck

Sorry things have been quiet on the blogging front, I have written a couple of posts - but generally by the time I get around to doing it (ie. after 10pm) the connection is sooooo slow - nothing will load! So fingers crossed - although that makes it a bit tricky to type.. this will work! 
Checked out the Nothcote Winter Artisans Market on Saturday, the boys were  fascinated by the glass blowing. It is on the next 2 Saturdays - 10am-4pm, Northcote town Hall.

Hottest 100

Righto, dinner is cooked, slice and biscuits in the oven ready for this week's lunchboxes, and the rest of the family is die back from swimming in another hour....time to finally get the computer out! Time to crank up the stereo too - Triple J are the running their "Hottest 100 Australian Albums of all time" poll -   
I'm looking over my cd's and it is so hard to decide on my top 10.  Deborah Conway, Claire Bowditch, Powderfinger, silverchair, Hunters and Collectors, The Go-Betweens, You-am-I, Sia, Something for Kate,Cat Empire.... and that is not even going back to high school (which I really don't have on cd - maybe on vinyl and cassette somewhere!) Mondo Rock, Mental as Anything, Moving Pictures  (hmm, lots of "M's" in the 8o's!), Split Enz, Dragon (just listened to a best of I found cheap at JB recently). I always spend too long thinking about these things and run out of time to actually vote!

Bugger, the first tray of biccies are a bit well done. So much for multi-tasking!

Monday 20th

Monday 20th will be the next craft group, since the 13th is the long weekend!  I have some craft kits ready to go if anyone wants to do some sewing for the school craft stall, just let me know.  
Remember the Spinners and Weavers expo is on this weekend, as well as the sisters market at the Brunswick Town Hall.
