This weekend we were very kindly invited to Rob and Gails as they threw a leaving party for The Grays. We had a fab night with mine host Rob D.J.ing the night away for all their guests in their OWN PUB adjoining the house!! With a floodlit pool, tropical surrounds and alfresco balcony the setting, like the video from Wham's Club Tropicana was so good even the Possums decided to join us.
Highlights of the night included Robs party games and a visit to see his pet Tarantula!! Taxis were put back an hour as frivolities cut into the night. Gail and Rob ended up in bed at 4 a.m. Thanks you two we had a another great night.
On a foot note for friends and family of the McKenzies:-
It would have been great to have Becky and Ian there but unfortunately they could not make it as they were tired after doing something every weekend since they got here SEVEN weeks ago.Awwwwwwwwwwwww. Sorry you two but that's not the Australian spirit, I think we better H.T.F.U. to quote a famous Aussie comedian.
After the party's we had at McKenzies before we came to Oz, I think they're boxing well below their weight. LOL.

Hello from sunny Brizzy once again. Actually its not been so predictably sunny as it usually is this week with some big down pours and a few showers thrown in for good measure. That said we have had a very busy Easter weekend that started with a few cheeky ones and a dinner of bar-b-q'd chicken with garlic and ginger king prawns, with our guests Becky, Ian and Megan on Thursday night. Friday morning we were up bright and early and after a full English breakfast we headed off for the Redcliffe festival of sails down on Suttons beach.
The festival is an annual event with heaps of stalls,rides, eaterys and atractions along the beach front. It took us a while to get there as we had a stroll around the market stalls first, but after buying Cornish pasties for £3.50 english, EACH!!!! we headed for the carnival. We were stopped short on route as we walked past the lagoon, little Miss Megan insisted she was going nowhere until she had herself a dip. We eventually got there around mid afternoon, by the time Megan had a ride on the ponys and we had a bite to eat it was time to head back as Lauren had to go to work. But not before she bought a blow up Dorra the explora for Megan, her face was a picture and she has taken it every where with her since.
We were up early again Friday morning and once again heading down to Redcliffe, this time to the jetty to catch a boat before heading over to Morton Island for the day with a bunch of mates. We had a great day snorkling amongst the ship wrecks and boom netting off the back of the boat even though a bunch of Tiger sharks had been spotted off the island just the night before. We saw no Sharks but lots of Dolphins and their tiny babys. Adrienne cannot lift her arms above her head today after holding onto the boom net for dear life yesterday. Oh well, you only live once!!
The day was finished with an impromptue get together back at ours where after a great day everyone was in great spirits and by the end of the night great spirits was also in them, Vodka, Bacardi,Sambuca,............
P.S. almost forgot to say, Buddy didn't want to be left out of last nights festivities. He was caught skulling a near full glass of Bacardi and coke and didn't even have an hang over this morning. Unlike the rest of us.
