Last night's evening out was OK.  Lovely to meet more of the people Stew works with in a casual setting.

Everyone had a good time ... lots of dancing, laughing, enjoying the company.
The theme was 'Oscar Night', so I spent a lot of time taking photos... which I didn't mind doing.

Here's a few that don't feature anyone, as I didn't bother to get permissions to post them.  

ABOVE:  This is the Gaslight Theatre in Cambridge, the venue for last nights event.
There's been a few improvements made to the building since this photo was taken.

 ABOVE:  This is the 'foyer' and bar area.  It was lovely... but got really hot once there were 3 dozen people in it!

 ABOVE:  Stew and I on the 'Red Carpet'.

 ABOVE: Stew getting some cool air outside.

 ABOVE: Yep, he wore THOSE shoes!  I love them, he always gets comments on them.  

 ABOVE: During the evening, there were 'Oscars' awarded to various staff members ... some of the categories were 'Tiger for Punishment', 'Most Hen Pecked', 'The Most Theatrical Fall', 'Super Duper Super User', 'Most Inappropriate', 'Crash Test Dummy' and 'Oh My God, What's Next'!
Some hilarity ensued when recipients went up to collect their 'Oscar'. 

ABOVE:  One of the group, NOT mentioning any names... having a quick nap before I took her back to her motel.  *smiles*

Later on this morning Stew will be going down to do the clean up.  There's not much to do, so I am staying home!

Brylee has Drama practise again today, so we won't be going anywhere I think.

Catch ya later, have a good day.


1.50 pm:  It's been a totally slow day.  No one got up early.  And nothing has been done!
We were going to go on a tiki tour of our area, but then I remembered that we have Kelly visiting this afternoon.

So... that's where we are at right now.  Just chillin.

4.24 pm:  And Kelly and Rena just left.
Kelly gave Stew an early Father's Day present... I will show you tomorrow what it is.

While they were here, Tallulah bit Kelly twice on the hand, and growled at her on/off the whole time!
Boy does she need to be trained/socialised fast.

The Dog Trainer is coming out in September to meet us and Tallulah, and give us a plan to follow to stop Tallulah's anti social behaviour.

ABOVE:  Luckily, Tallulah didn't mind Rena!  It would be a disaster if she suddenly didn't like children either.

*** Give me 10 minutes to update***

Stew is cooking tonight.  Yaaaa.  A night off.

I forgot to show Rena our Hobbit House!  Darn.  Oh well, next time she's out I will, and hopefully by then I will have some 'stuff' in it for kids to play with.  But not a bed, yeah, let's not go there!
Dr's and nurses comes to mind, or playing Mummy's and Daddy's.  Yeah NAH!  lol

11.20 pm: Well it's been a fairly cruisy day today... I even fell asleep in me chair just before dinner!  Stew... bless his heart... took a photo of me asleep.  Haven't even looked at it yet.  Maybe won't either.  lol


  1. Lol you both look gorgeous and I had to smile at the shoes. They are awesome. Was Henry there? Him and Kevin look really good in dress up lol. I say no more. Hope it's a beautiful sunny day up there for you. I can't believe the winter we've had this year. Could probably count the days on my fingers. Enjoy your day Chris.

  2. Wow Chris, I don't think I've seen you in black (with a splash of colour)... it really suits you and you both look very elegant. It's fun to dress up sometimes.
