Scared Weird Little Guys

Tonight Surfer Boy and I are actually going out TOGETHER!  We usually find that these days we end up going to things individually so someone is home with the kids but tonight we get to actually go on a date.
Our lovely (and hilarious) friend Rusty has invited us to see his final show at The Atheaneum Theatre.  Rusty is one half of the 'Scardies' who are performing their final tour after 21 years and four and a half thousand shows together! 
Enough Already is their farewell tour and I'm so rapt that we get to see it.

'I'll leave your names at the door'  Who doesn't want to hear that every now and then?

Post Script - We just got home and I can honestly say we have not had that much fun in a long long time.  The boys were in fantastic form and were hilarious.  They will be sorely missed.  You must see them if you can!

Caravan Inspiration - O.T.T.

Sometimes someone needs to take you aside and tell you when you've gone too far!
This is a perfect example of this not happening.
Maybe this van looks better from a distance but at the moment it is giving me a sugar rush.

It's Here

The caravan arrived yesterday - Surfer Boy took the day off to go and pick it up and then drove past my shop so I could see it - hilarious. 

When I got home from work he had already started working on it - it was absolutely filthy and unfortunately smells rather strongly of dog!  Not my favourite aroma.

The poor girl is in a sorry state but I noticed there were measurements for sheets of ply on the dining table this morning so I'm tipping that by the end of the weekend she will have at least one spanking new panel.    I'll have to make sure I take lots of photos of her transformation.

I have to make a decision as to whether I cover over the current (original but gross and beyond saving) upholstery or if I splurge and get the seats recovered.  I'm leaning towards the latter as I don't think that dog wee smell is ever going to leave if I don't.  I've already removed the hideous curtains and binned them - tempted to make new ones tonight but think I should wait until everything is sparkling again.

So much to do - so fun.  Grab a pair of gloves, some Spray & Wipe and join us for a weekend of scrubbing....

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was an icon in the truest sense of the word long before she passed away yesterday at the age of 79.

 I think this is my favourite photo of Liz - candid, relaxed and relishing the sun on her face.  Perfect.

Just Ace.

Personal life
Bell is fluent in Persian and English. She is fond of motorcycling, skiing, snowboarding and kick-boxing, which she has been practicing for over 10 years. Her hobbies include cross-stitching and making model cars, which she has done since age 8. She met actor/production assistant Adam Beason on the set of Death Becomes Her in 1992 (where she was the body-double for Isabella Rossellini), and they were married on May 8, 1994. They have a daughter, Gemma, who was born on April 16, 2003 and a son Ronan born on August 21, 2010.
Bell was the grand marshal of the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on June 3, 2007.

During the Hollywood writers strike, Bell took flying lessons in a Cirrus SR22.
When she was in her 20s, she had thyroid cancer and had to have her thyroid removed. She does not cover the scar on her neck because she "thinks it's kind of cool".
