Wrapped with Love

A few weeks ago, I dragged the boy out in the cold so that we could knit for charity at the ABC studios in Ultimo.

Here‘s a link to the ABC site with pictures.  And there is a pic of Inigo and I here.  Which I found out about today, Lyndal from R+L told me!

A Poultry Place

Here is a link to an ABC clip about Bede Carmody, who runs a sanctuary for poultry. It was Bede that took our three roosters after we were left with them by animal liberation a few years ago.

You can read more about Bede’s work here and here.

As far as I can tell, there is no way to make online donations, but there is a mailing address at the bottom of the last link.

Not for the weak of stomach

Now, I used to be a goth. And I appreciate the black nail polish and corsetry better than most people. I even owned some black lipstick in my time. So I am hardly one to start chucking rocks at transparent houses. Or something.

But this. This is wrong.

In case you’re wondering who the flat chested tramp with the semi naked muscle is – that would be Paris Hilton.

Congratulations Emma and Roger

We spent last week travelling, and on friday (08.08.08), Emma and Roger got hitched. I did my second wedding, and despite a hiccup (or two), the wedding went off swimmingly, and a whale of a time was had by all.

Here Inigo sports wedding outfit number two, the formal one. Jacket courtesy of Miriam, pants, bib and ribbon trimmed shoes by me.

I’m a bit wobbly at the moment, not posting much because I don’t really know what to say.
