Joyeux Anniversaire.

We met on a sultry night at this time of the year.
It was the kind of night when the warm air whispers a thousand promises in your ear.
I saw him and felt hundreds of gossamer butterfly wings come to life in my tummy.
We shared a drink, conversation and a walk home together.
The city slumbered around us.
This is the time for lovers, he told me.
We shared a kiss in an old wooden doorway.
You are beautiful in this dress, he whispered into my hair.
He played a song on his guitar when we reached his rambling home.

And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover.

As the sun rose we sat side by side, sipping inky coffee.
Trying not to stare.
Blushing over what we had just shared.
He brought me back to life.
I want you to stay forever, he whispered as I was leaving.
I did.

Bon Anniversaire to my Better Half!

List Making

The other half often laughs about my obsessive list making. I rather enjoy compiling the odd list or two-mostly because I have a shocking memory! I often come across some of the old lists I've compiled, upon the most random of topics, and today was one of those times. I was going through a box of my old art supplies looking for some brushes when I happened upon an old envelope I had thoughtfully (?) tucked inside an old drawing book of my dad's. It was "Things I am greatful for," with a respelendant pencil sketch alongside of a dreadlocked girl riding a skateboard. Judging by this, I'd put my 'greatful-ness' list circa 1998.....

Things I am Greatful for:
Kate, Bec and Megan
Triple J
My drums
My Family

A scary journey into my teen mind. It got me thinking about what I'm greatful for, circa 2009. And what other lists I should make for myself....


The Other Half and I went on our first date to the movies tonight. We saw a truly jump-out-of your-seat-scary movie Paranormal Activity. I highly recommend going and seeing it on the big screen, for no other reason than to scare yourself stupid and to laugh at your dearly beloved jumping out of their seat and spilling the popcorn.
I laugh now as I sit here writing this, but I'm definitely sleeping with the light on tonight.................

Enter the Land of Man....'Manland'.

I'm afraid I cannot write a decent blog entry today-even though I had one hundred and one million of the most interesting things in mind to do so with-because the other half is outside in Manland trying to hot up some old engine motor thingy.
It is so loud.
I cant think straight.
And I'm certain my ears have just started to bleed.
The house has started to fill with smoke. Fumes. Or whatever the grey billowy stuff is that is spewing forth from the hard garbage treasure he's tinkering on.
Oh my do I feel sorry for our neighbours.

If this continues for much longer, the other half will be sleeping in Manland tonight......

More ranting. I rant well. Do what you're good at, I say!

So everyone keeps commenting "I didn't know you had a blog," etc etc.
For y'all information, I kept it very quiet for a reason.
Because I'm too LAZY to make it PRETTY like everyone else's, and because I RANT like a MADWOMAN a majority of the time and was suffering terrible GUILT at spewing forth such a CRAP blog on the world.
Oh and because it was supposed to be a craft blog, but I haven't actually crafted in a long while. And as a result, have nothing crafty to blog about.
(My aborted mission several weeks ago to turn my aunts precious vintage frock, which no longer fits my inexplicably expanding waistline, into a skirt does not count. The miserable failure saw me destroy the dress in its entirety. I am still sulking and my sewing machine is now safely stowed in the cupboard, so I dont destroy any more precious heirlooms.)

But now I'm feeling much more comfortable in my mediocrity and have thus decided to end my self-exile and start becoming a card carrying member of blogworld. Pretty blog or not, Half-job Sarah is going to give it a fair go!!

(Please can nobody enlighten the Thaw team that I'm such a horses ass at sewing. My position as 'crafty lady' might be revoked. Rightly so, and exactly what I deserve after destroying a genuine 1960's dress that met Bob Marley on the tube in London. Sob.)

Thaw-y McThawington.

Check out the shiny new Summer edition of Thaw, out today! Big ups to Kim and Ro for another job very well done!

I'm very pleased to have 2 articles in this issue, one on the lovely Beck from Dandelion, the other from the hilarious Jodie of RicRac.
These fantastically amazingly talented ladies made it so wonderful to write these pieces.

Go forth and read.
(Especially pages 19 and 38. Tee Hee!)
