I’m in love

I just got to meet my newest best friend for the very first time today
She doesn’t have a name yet, and any suggestions better be clean are welcome

She’s a beautiful, custom MATON guitar, created by the amazing Andy Allen
I am lucky enough to have several custom Matons, all Australian made, by Andy
Red, purple, sparkly….
So far, every guitar has sounded better than the last
And I can’t wait to pop this one’s cherry at tonight’s sold out Hexham show
‘Cause you know what they say,
“Once you’ve had black

you never go back you’ll be smiling a lot.”

classy crackers

I’m totally cheating with Christmas crafts this year
Some people bake. I’m lucky  enough to have some mates that do, then drive around delivering the cookies they made, to non-bakers like me.
Then I do my bit by eating them
It’s a team effort.
I do like crafts though
The girls and I try a different one every year
This year I cheated like a mofo and grabbed some ‘pre-made’ craft kits
And by pre-made, I mean it’s the slacker’s way to be Martha Stewart.
I must have fore-seen my pre-Christmas disorganisation when I bought them

Whatevs
It’s still fun to do
These ones didn’t turn out too realistic though

Um. hello? I have my legs crossed

We have crackers on our table every year for Christmas.
This year, I grabbed these great ‘make your own’ kits from Marks & Spencer when I was in the UK
You add your own gifts to each one
Then label it to who you think should have that particular gift
Awesome, no?

Bet my mother-in-law LURVES her new teeth.

crumpets and carpet for the win

I was already having the best day ever, when I was sent to the carpet store
BY MYSELF.
Like, Diamond totally dropped the ball on that
Because before he had time to realise that the little blonde bull was well and truly out of the gate
I’d picked thickest, purple SHAG carpet I could find.
I’d like to think it’s exactly what Marcia Brady had in HER bedroom.
Except ours is going in our LIVING ROOM.
Which is obviously WAY better.

So yeah, paid for, and booked to be installed, ALL before Diamond knew what hit him.
Tee fucking hee, right tharr.

Then I found these
Making today a champion fucking Thursday

Any Australians living in the U.S. would totally understand my *ecstatic-asm over this

*new word….think ECSTATIC meets ORGASM.
