oh dear! a disaster is in progress...

Sorry, created a new logo and then redesigned my twitter page, which meant I had to redesign my blog and site all on the same day, so weird things may happen :D

I do have a really good reason though!

Are you turtley enuff for the turtle?

kidlet got into Uni, YAY! is majoring in photojournalism.

We found a friend :D An Eastern snake neck turtle that seems to have been hibernating in the creek over the road until rudely awakened by the Council grass slasher & wandered out onto the road *eek* so he was rescued and we're taking him/her to the creek with water or the lake. The creek over the road is still dry, so we can't put him back there. here's a pic I took on my phone earlier

my new little friend. Must have been woken up when the counci... on Twitpic

And as I said on twitter, it seems like a good night to have a Hugh Grant movie marathon, now that I have conceded that I do in fact, like Hugh Grant movies! heh.

random tilt at full speed!

sorry, been busy. kidlet's end of year exhibition and other busyness have been going on. I feel like Alice down the rabbit hole, except I didn't quite make it and got stuck upside down with my legs waving wildly in the air.

There is nothing worse than almost finishing an A3 artwork and stuffing it up. that you can't fix lololololol arrggghhhhh... so, ahem, I started a new one and am thinking of cutting out the best bits of the first one then gluing & sandpapering them into the new one. The weather swing [good time for gilding!] caught me out & the paint went off :( should have thought about it, but, hey I've been upside in a rabbit hole, what else do you expect? trial and error is a good thing, except when you're working to a deadline...

anyway, I am about to be throttled back to dial up speed [ smacks youngest daughter upside the head :D] so will be back when I am back to normal speed.

MusoMagic | Adam Thompson Music Workshops

Here's the link to the song and video the kids performed at the MusoMagic workshop earlier this week. They were all great and a good time was had by all, even in the middle of a heatwave! Adam as usual got the kids involved [ even the shy one's!] and had them all singing and dancing by the end of Day 1. They all jumped in and had a lot of fun.

MusoMagic | Adam Thompson Music Workshops

I really recommend schools and groups to host one of Adam's workshops, the kids get a lot out of them and by the end every kid [and adult] is enthusiastically joining in and don't care anymore about whether or not they think they can sing or dance.

MusoMagic Workshop

Tomorrow [errr, today actually LOL] I am a volunteer again for a MusoMagic Workshop here. I love these workshops, they are run by Adam Thompson [ex Chocolate Starfish lead singer] and he really gets the best out of the kids, even the shy one's! 2 days and you wouldn't believe how happy they all are and how hard they work with Adam.

I have to say, for me, the best part is at the end when the kids see their hard work and they are all smiles. Me too :D

So, will link to this years when it's finished on Tues night. In the meantime, you can see the song & video from last year here MusoMagic Bendigo 2008
