That's the sound of my head hitting the wall.

My little body has decided enough is enough and is shutting down. 

It's been through a lot in the last few weeks:  BuBba started childcare, travelled overseas with a baby for the first time, started work after a year off, looked after a baby with a cold, gave my wonderful SiSsy lots of TLC, taken care of a baby, a husband and itself with gastro and all the while keeping house and entertaining guests as per usual.

I am officially shattered.

Good thing we're off on a mini-break up to North Queensland, leaving in a couple of hours.  I hope to return with my batteries fully recharged.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Time for some Mush

When I think back to when I was pregnant, I initially remember it fondly.  

Until I remember, hang on, surely it wasn't all cupcakes and fairy floss.  And that's when I recall what it was really like.  I swear I was Queen Diva Whingy Pain in the Behind, all rolled in to one.  

Yes, that's my belly!

But the whole experience was an absolute blessing and I have my dear sweet BuBba to show for it.

Sex and the City 2 Premiere

Just over one week to go before I get to see the movie but until then, here are my hits and misses at the Premiere held last night in New York City.


Jennifer Love Hewitt in Herve Leger 

Baby got back and boy is she proud!  You go girl - looking fierce!


Liza Minelli in something utterly ridonculous

You've got to give it to the lady - she has a banging set of legs but wtf with the ensemble???  Was it one of those cases where she didn't realise that the flashes made her chicken fillets outfit see-through?  

Aye carumba...

A Small Pause in Transmission

The BuBbles household has been hit with gastro.  

Normal transmission will resume shortly...

Friday Drool

How droolworthy is the Missoni Home 2010 collection???

The bedroom is divine and I seriously covet the wardrobe door.  Add in a pendant light and voila!  Style to the max!

I wouldn't want to be too greedy though but a few cushions for our modular (and maybe a towel set for the bathroom while we're at it) would do me just nicely...

Oh Summer

Rachel Bilson has been trotting out some seriously hot looks at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Yes...  I loved The O.C. and oh how I miss it...  

Thank goodness I have 90210 to entertain me now otherwise I wouldn't know what to do with myself!

High Rotation

Record of the week belongs to Florence + The Machine with their debut album, Lungs.

This is one of my fave songs from the album.  Enjoy!

T.. t... t... tequila!!!


When the tequila is brought out, you know things are going to go pear-shaped.

On the upside, we discovered a new take on the "lick, sip, suck" way of drinking this golden nectar.

Grab some cinnamon and sprinkle on a slice of orange (or improvise with mandarins like we did) and after downing a shot of tequila, shove that in your gob.  

It really does make the tequila go down a whole lot smoother, I promise!

Bloggers Without Makeup Day

Ok, so I've been deliberating all morning if I should take part in this great initiative by Mummy Mayhem to celebrate ourselves, warts and all (so to speak).

I only just revealed myself here on the blog the other day and that was because I thought the photo made me look my best.  

Revealing myself in the raw is a big step for me but heck, let's throw caution to the wind and just do it!

This is me, sans make-up.  

As Mummy Mayhem said, we are all AMAZING!

Friday Drool

When I was in high school, way back when, I went through a bit of a metalhead phase.  

On "free dress" days, you'd find me walking down the halls wearing black shoes and jeans, a Metallica t-shirt, complete with scary looking skull, and a red flannie.  If you think that sounds bad, let's not even start to talk about how my socks were white!

Cue to today and I do still enjoy a lot of the more hardcore music.  

Imagine my glee when I saw that Metallica were touring Australia later this year.  And yes I got tickets and I already have a babysitter lined up for when they come to Sydney in November. 

So in the spirit of heavy metal, this is one of my favourite Metallica songs...

On another note, I've been thinking lately that the theme of Friday Drool doesn't really encompass what I post on Fridays.  I share things that I love and am excited about but not always literally drool over.  But I can't think of anything else to call these posts.

Any ideas?

Sharing is Caring

A while back I promised to share some wedding photos with you.  There's so many that I love but here's a few to keep you going for the moment.

Our scrumptious wedding cake.  Bottom tier - choc mudcake; middle tier - caramel mudcake; top tier - white choc mudcake

Down the alley way

That's a Moschino tie peeking out from Daddy BuBble's suit

You didn't think I'd forget, did you?

Don't leave things that you don't want damaged within reach of little hands...

Weekend Round Up

Ahhhh, the beginning of a new week and thank goodness!

I was SO excited about my very first Mother's Day and had great expectations.  Sadly, I was disappointed but credit where credit is due, the morning with my boys was lovely and I was treated to breakfast in bed with the newspapers and my favourite coffee.  

My first Mother's Day card - I will treasure this forever.

Things went pear-shaped after we left the house and this next photo was taken just before I had my (selfish/diva/self-absorbed/Naomi Campbell) meltdown.

I debated about whether to post a pic of myself and BuBba but thought what the heck.  It was a beautiful Autumn day in Sydney and I look half decent in this pic and my hair's not too shabby either.

I hope all the Mummies out there had a great Mother's Day (because I'm pretty sure it would have been way better than mine...) and got spoilt rotten they way you deserve to be!

Friday Drool

BuBba's 1st birthday is one month away.  Holy Schmoly!!!

I've just finished a test run of chocolate cupcakes for the big day.  It was my first time ever icing cakes with a piping bag (or whatever they're called) so please be nice to me :)

What do you think?  I reckon I did a half good job for my first time ;)

Be Thankful Thursday

I saw this little ditty over at the ever so positive and gorgeous Sunny Mummy and just had to share.

Things are a bit tough here right now with BuBba.  The combination of his foray in to childcare and the (not unexpected) snotty nose, chesty cough and general grumpiness that goes with it, a perfectly timed bout of super clinginess and me returning to work means that we're not a very happy household at the moment.  

That probably explains why I'm sitting here unshowered and still in my pyjamas.

But I am thankful.  So soooooo thankful and I am reminded that through difficult times, I will grow.

Part-time = Win

How good is working two days a week???  Freaking awesome!!!

Shame that BuBba is not settling in to daycare as yet.  Poor little munchkin was so knackered when we came home yesterday afternoon that I put him down for a late nap thinking that he'd sleep for an hour and a half max.  Cue 12 hours later and a missed meal and bath and he woke at 4am this morning for his bottle!  Sheesh!  I guess it doesn't help that he seems to still be sick either...

Anyways, enough about that.  I thought I'd share a few more photos of Fiji goodness.

Makka Pakka got his own seat on the flight over

A little sanctuary of bliss when you're staying in a renowned family friendly resort

It's not called the Coral Coast just for shits and giggles, you know!

Would you believe that I'm actually scared of heights?  I was crapping my pants beforehand, let me tell you!

I think that's enough for now but never fear, there's plenty more gorgeous sunset pics to share another time.

Bula vinaka!

I've been a very busy little bee the last month or so.  Mother visited for a week then best friend and husband stayed for a long weekend, BuBba commenced childcare and then got sick (grrrrr) and I've been preparing for my return to work tomorrow after a year off on maternity leave.

Fiji was just what the Doctor ordered.  Cocktails, food, swimming and sunsets - what more could you ask for?  Oh that's right, cheap babysitting! ;)

There's more photos to come but for now I'm off to bed because I have a very early start tomorrow morning.  

Wish me luck!
