Cup Cake Day for the RSPCA

My favourite charity is the RSPCA (helping animals in need). Next Monday is their annual Cup Cake charity day. It's the cutest day! You bake cupcakes and sell them and raise money for the charity. The exciting thing is...we're celebrating it at work this year! It will be so much fun!! I can't wait!!! Here's the website, take a look: http://www.rspcacupcakeday.com.au/

Happy New Year 2009!!!

Hope you all have a great night tonight. Anyone got any special plans to celebrate New Years Eve this year?? Or made any New Years Resolutions?

Australian Jingle Bells

Here's an Australian version of the classic Christmas carol...


Dashing through the bush,
in a rusty Holden Ute,
Kicking up the dust,
esky in the boot,
Kelpie by my side,
singing Christmas songs,
It's Summer time and I am in
my singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut !,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Engine's getting hot;
we dodge the kangaroos,
The swaggie climbs aboard,
he is welcome too.
All the family's there,
sitting by the pool,
Christmas Day the Aussie way,
by the barbecue.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Come the afternoon,
Grandpa has a doze,
The kids and Uncle Bruce,
are swimming in their clothes.
The time comes 'round to go,
we take the family snap,
Pack the car and all shoot through,
before the washing up.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute

Hot! Hot! Hot!

Today is 35°C and it's still only spring!!!! Crazy weather!!!

There is a real danger for bush fires now. We live near a national park and the other day I could smell bush fire smoke. But nothing since. So, maybe they were "back burning" to prevent any bad fires from occurring. I really hope that it isn’t a hot summer this year… I struggle to cope in really hot weather…

Spring has sprung!

The weather today is just wonderful...blue sky with lots of sun, warm temperatures. AND it's Friday. AND it's pay day (I get paid once a month).

So, since I'm all cashed up, I'm off to the city tomorrow to go shopping. I only go into the city centre two or three times a year these days (it's 40 mins away). There's a big mall near my place and another big mall near my office so I really don't need to go there. But, it's always fun to look in different shops, right? So, I'm off shopping...to my fave Japanese bookshop so I can stock up on cute paper and stickers and I'll also look around at the new season clothes. Such pretty colours are around at the moment.

Happy weekend!

What's up for the weekend?

They predicted rain here for most of the weekend and from looking out the window right now, I'd agree that it's not going to stop any time soon. So, I think I'll stay indoors and read...something cosy...a book and a cup of coffee... Mmmm sounds like a plan!

Carnival

We live next door to a school and today they had a fair. There was live music and food stalls and stuff. It was so funny (and cool!!!) to be able to see rides and a jumping castle from my bedroom window!!! LOL :-D

Olympic Games

Anyone watching the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony tonight? Will be great I think :-)

What are your favourite sports to watch at the Olympics? I like gymnastics the best. BMX is new (?) this year so will enjoy seeing that too.
