Jay & Melly 2005

circa 2005 at a friend’s party;
balmy night, corona’s with lime, seared & smoky bbq, blonde hair, Otis Redding on the stereo, strawberry pavlova, games of boggle, home-made icy poles, cradling babies, hide & seek, hyper puppies, lots of laughter. good times.

ain’t memories & love grand

SchoolGirlsHair Throwback Thursday circa 1996

That’s me in the middle with long hair & a fringe (aka bangs)!
My girlfriends are (L to R): Amelia, Tamma, Lindy, me, Janine & Rachel.

My high school reunion is happening in August! It’s been 18 years since that photo was taken in Year 12 (aka Senior) and we’ve decided it’s time to catch up.

Now if that is motivation to get my butt into gear (and much smaller) I can’t think of a better reason!!!

Happy Thursday xx

throwback thursday | Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Even though I’ve posted today already, I can’t pass up an opportunity for a Throwback Thursday! Especially when it’s Ferris!

Principal Ed Rooney

“Mr Rooney….Ed….you’re a beautiful man.
Thankyou for your warmth and compassion.”
– Sloane to Rooney


“Ladies and gentlemen, you’re such a wonderful crowd, we’d like to play a little tune for you. It’s one of my personal favorites and I’d like to dedicate it to a young man who doesn’t think he’s seen anything good today – Cameron Frye, this one’s for you.”
– Ferris to NYC

Economics Teacher (roll-call)

“Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?”
“My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from 
this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris
pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it it’s pretty serious.”
“Thankyou Simone.”
“No problem whatsoever!”


I think it’s time to go re-watch Ferris for the millionth time!
