ONLY 2 BLOG POSTS THIS YEAR. THAT PRETTY SHIT
You have been like that house visitor that you want to leave but they just keep on sitting on the couch drinking your coffee and won't take the hint to leave.
2016 The year of the NON-STOP EVERYTHING.
SINCE MY LAST POST
I went to the Miss Fisher Season Three Costume Exhibition and Lawn Picnic.
I was going to do a whole blog post just on that but ..... 2016 happened and well...........
My date was the delightful and divine Sherry Knee.
The exhibition was bloody fabulous (I know I overuse fabulous but it was). We wanted to touch & caress all the things but Mz Lisa was there to rap people over the knuckles.
Everybody looked INCREDIBLE. The building (Old Government House) was INCREDIBLE.
I promise I will post more photos in 2017 or 2018 when my life slows down
GOT CALLED UP FOR JURY DUTY for the first time in my life.
I only had to go in for one day & they DID call my name.
I had to go into the courtroom.
Surprisingly, given my shady past this was my first time in a courtroom.
40 of us lined up & then they called 12 numbers out of us to be the jurors.
The whole time I was standing there I felt so sick & thought I was going to throw up.
The case was a real yucky one involving young boys. HORRIBLE JUST HORRIBLE.
I was standing there sweating & trying not to hyperventilate repeating "please don't pick me Please don't pick me." Thankfully they didn't & I could go home. Phew.
Bloody missed out on the free lunch though. Bugger.
I REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY need to do a blog post just about my favourite weekend of the year.
As always, the bands were fucking fantastic!!!
JOHN LEWIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GAWD. OH. MY GAWD.
THE RHYTHM SHAKERS lead singer made me question my sexual orientation .
Oh MY pass the smelling salts did someone say HUBBA HUBBA!
The new venue took a bit of getting used to but the entertainment & the fact that my bunch of nut bag friends could have a ball in a blank concrete room made the weekend AWESOME as usual.

FINALLY GOT TO MEET THE INFAMOUS JOY TAYLOR!
I have been social media mates with Joy for AGES and we've often thought we were separated at birth. Well, it's like we've 'known' each other for years.
Funny as a fit. Mental. FABulous and gorgeous. So awesome.
Did I mention funny?

THE DOLLOP AUSTRALIAN TOUR AT THE POWERHOUSE
Went to see the live recording of one of my favourite podcasts The Dollop at The Power House with some of my special lads. It was so great & hilarious. The subject was William Bligh which I already had a fair bit of knowledge about so I knew it would be good.
They didn't disappoint.
WE GOT AN AIR CONDITIONER INSTALLED AT HOME!
Anyone who knows me, knows that me & the heat do NOT get on.
I LOATHE & HATE THE HEAT. A LOT.
The normally lovely happy Mz Vicki transforms into a bleached blonde albino version of The Hulk in summer. So Mr Hardly Normal was having one of his 500 years interest free things so I stomped my widdle foot and exclaimed "That. Is. it!"
Besides the day I met The Big Fella, the day the air con was installed was the happiest day of my life.
It's so beautiful. So so beautiful
THOSE DARN SEW AND SEWS MEET N GREET
A bunch of the Brisbane chapter of my FB sewing group got together for coffee and scones to chat all things fabric. After a delicious brunch we headed to what I will now call UTOPIA or East Coast Fabrics where my brain exploded with excitement at all the fantastic fabrics at only $5.95 A METRE.
I almost had an anxiety attack because the choice was so overwhelming. I will never shop anywhere every again. INCREDIBLE.
Did I buy any fabric? hahahahahahhahahahah
AND LASTLY WORK
I have had the two gals I work with off (one honeymooning and the other really crook) so it has been just me & the boss lady. It has been full on. I have surprised myself though with how much I have handled it all. I'm pretty proud of myself but I've been getting home so mentally exhausted that I just don't want to think about ANYTHING.
I even watched ONE episode of the Bachelor. That's how zombifried my brain has been.
Only 3 months left.............
