JY and I were just laughing at some old photos of mine tonight.....ahh the memories, highschool seems like a life time ago. I look at these photos and I almost don't recognise the person looking back at me. Some of these pictures are a bit embrassing ...but what the heck!
Left to Right: 1997(Yr 10 Formal), 1998 (KMH formal), 1998 (Kingsgrove Formal)
1999 (My Yr 12 Formal)
Yr 10 1997 - My hair was sooo short! My Mum made my Yr 10 Formal dress and despite Marcus calling it a 'poo yellow' it was actually a lime green with 2 layers (shiny silk on the bottom and chiffon on the top). Wendy was at my house getting ready that day – would you believe our dates came to pick us up in a stretch limo??
KMH 1998 - Charley took me as his date but I can't find where I put the scanner to scan another photo. I remember getting my hair done for this and I wanted to cry at the salon because it was HUGE! I even caught a taxi home so no one would see me!
Kingsgrove 1998 - Jacky met my Mum for the first time when he came to pick me up to take me to his formal. Things went OK - Mum was always going to be difficult because she was annoyed that I was dating before finishing Uni (she'll hold it against me forever). She wasn't too sure about Jacky either, because he tragically had an undercut and she came to the conclusion that he must be in a gang??!?! Eventually she came around – it only took a few years!
Yr 12 Formal 1999 – You can’t see the dress clearly but it was by Lisa Ho (yes mum made it once again) it had a long train at the back and was made from 3 layers of silk (baby blue, an aqua colour and another blue at the bottom) finished with diamante straps. It was on this same night that I met DJ Ho , I didn't realise this until recently.

Did anyone watch the idol finals tonight? See the maroon dress that Kate wore at the beginning and the brown dress that Emily wore at the end? My Mum made those =)

I know that I was suppose to look for a birthday present for Martin at lunch today and I had every intention to do so. However, as I was walking towards David Jones I accidentally stumbled into Mollini; seeing that I was there I may as well have a look around right? Would you believe that Mollini was having a shoe sale?? I spotted a gorgeous pair of pink heels with little crystals that would go perfectly with the pink dress I bought the other week, it was the last pair and they had it in my size! (You wouldn’t want me to wear a dress without the matching shoes would you now?) So I had to buy them.
On the way to the counter I spotted another stunning pair of heels, seeing that I didn't own anything like it I thought I’d try it on just to have a look, you know how it is. It just so happened that they looked really good with my suit today (much better than the ones I was already wearing, I know this because the shop assistant told me so, they’re so helpful aren’t they!).
Well, I couldn’t decide which ones to buy…so I bought them both! Now, I know what you are thinking and Yes I do realise that this is the 3rd pair of shoes that I have bought this week and that my closet has absolutely no space and that you are sick to death at having to climb onto the chair to take down the shoes that I can’t reach – BUT they were on sale! Just think of all the money I saved.
By the time I left Mollini it was already time to go back to work, seeing that you’d probably need a break from writing your thesis and studying for exams I thought that it’d be a great idea if you went to buy the present for Martin. I’m a genius! I don’t know why I didn't come up with this idea sooner – well, good luck with finding a present, I’m sure that you’ll make an excellent choice.
So…. how was your day?

It's been very difficult; at first the family blamed themselves, maybe she ate snail poison…but then after a few tests the vet came to the conclusion that she was deliberately poisoned. Who would do such a thing? Who!??!?!

It’s an 8-week course and occurs every Monday during lunch, one of the ladies at work is trying to get certification to be a pilates instructor and needs to hold a series of classes before she’s recognised, so the good thing for me is that it’s all free.
So what did I think?
I’m not sure whether it’s because we were all beginners but I found the class to be very slow. There was many times where I found my mind wondering off to what I was having for lunch or if there were bugs in the carpet. Pilates seems to be made up of a lot of breathing, stretching and strengthening exercises and whilst it felt good it wasn’t particularly fun.

Does it remind you of those ones worn by the monkeys?
