a Charmed life



well Conor's home from Melbourne
he had a fantastic time and hasn't stopped talking about it v. good really
i soon lost him though to the three sisters
i went searching on Monday, (i had to leave the house to avoid going to work) for Stargate Atlantis DVD Season 2 for Conor for a Birthday present but couldn't find it anywhere! i had no idea what to get him for his birthday, he really has everything so i got him season one of Charmed
and he has steadily been watching every episode as he hadn't seen Season one or met Prue but now all's good it seems

dinner at Cafe meze

well dinner last night was Greek not Geek phew
for awhile there i had visions of Jenny and i sitting in front of our computers eating pizza and playing Star Trek
so we went Greek, but not my usual Greek - Ouzeri - my favourite restaurant ever
but Cafe Meze, still in West End but without the oil Jenny tells me
so it is unanimous for me it's all about the oil, the food was good but not to die for, but we more than made up for the food in chatter and wine
and one last comment on Cafe Meze, Greek salads do not have lettuce in them

i did however meet Marilyn's son Russell on the way to the restaurant i had to pick up some wine. Russel talked me into a deal, 2 bottles for $22, i think he was keen to get rid of me when i mentioned i was one of his mum's mad scrapping friends
poor Russel, it's always disconcerting to be the child of a scrapper and to wonder just how much this complete stranger knows about you - i see it doesn't diminish with age
for those of you wondering Russel is very much like his Mum and instantly recognisable as her son.

I've been busy

Check out what i've been doing today, iwas going thru my mending box and came across this UFO - so decided there is no time like the present so i've finished it woo hoo (oK i have finished only the top and not the wadding or the backing or even the binding and then there's the quilting ) but i've done the biggest part for me anyway i think i can pay someone to do all the rest

Ok you will notice that i haven't matched all the fabrics well i ran out of fabric so today when i pulled it all out i decided to just finish it anyway with some scraps, but i'm retty happy with it
i'm hungry i have no bread so i'm off to the shop, will have to have a shower and get dressed ugh
why can't the crock pot make bread dammit

Bon Voyage


Conor is off to Melbourne for a couple of weeks to see his other family woohoo

here he is eating a $5.95 muffin UNBELIEVABLE

and do you all know that your luggage has to be checked in 1 hour before departure time not you, so if your baggage is not checked it means that you get to go on the next flight, i'm so happy i got up at dawn just to drink bad coffee and eat overpriced muffins
Conor is having a great time, he's been out to dinner, got loads of presents and rang me last night to ensure i am taping his shows!!!! Yeah right i have the house to myself for 2 weeks for the first time in 2 years and my priority is taping Conor's shows- i so don't think so
I on the other hand had an ordinary week at work in the arctic freeze that is my corner of the office, hilighted by my friend Jenny returning form leave.
Oh and i had a moment, answer me this why would painters paint the outside of the office doors and put a sign WET PAINT on the OUTSIDE, not on the inside where we all were so yep you guessed it i managed to get paint all over my hand and do you think any one had any turps to take the paint off my hand NOPE, they had drunk it all

Crock Pot mania


Well after much research, thanks girls for your advice i joined the cult. I was hesitant, there is something about eating food that's been cooking all day that grosses me out. i like my food fresh and not quite cooked ( still crunchy) so we compromised a SC and salad for me.


Conor loves the SC and is getting quite good at cooking dinner, when he remembers to turn it on that is - otherwise it's a very slowcooker indeed; but after only 3 days of cooking with it i have enough food for a month LOL


Here's Conor with my answer to the battle of wills that is developing in this house over chores.



if it doesn't work i will abandon all hope and run away. Here's the thing why is it called abandonment if i leave home and running away if Conor leaves.


Ok am off to bed, yeah i know it's the middle of the day but new meds are making me feel queasy
catch ya

So i am a complete Luddite and i cannot publish a photo


i shall try again - yay it worked this time

Hey Debbie just for you!

Hey Debbie Y, look here i am just for you LOL, very plain and bare i know but hey i'm here.
it's been a long time between posts, but i couldn't remember my password in the other blog so can't go back.

OK a quick run down on the year so far, v. exciting happenings in the Cusack Muller household i can tell you LOL.

Friday 070105
i worked for a grand total of 2hrs today, i have a cold which i am sure is due to the arctic freeze our office is in atm, should start warming up when everyone comes back to work but for now brrr.....
I did manage to make it to the Norman for lunch and had a v. nice rib fillet with pepper sauce with a strange concoction on my baked potato and NO sour cream! Come on people what's a baked potato without sour cream I ask you?
Conor is cooking Carbonara for tea and we have the first 4 episodes of Supernatural on DVD, so looks like a quiet night in front of the Telly for me.

Thursday at Chrissy's 070104
a huge day in which i sneezed, Chrissy kindly offered me her tissues argh, she poisoned me they were lavender, sent me into another sneezing fit
Chrissy's lovely daughter Emily is a kindred spirit, we both love EMILY STRANGE, hey Emily i haven't forgotten our date for Harbourtown we will do it!
I pretended to steal Emily's back pack it's so cute pink and black, the look on Emily's face was one of pure horror, i thought she might even hit me LOL.
I had to have a serious discussion with Chrissy, poor Michael, Chrissy is quite taken with her Slow Cooker, she raves about it constantly, fusses over it and once i even cought her caressing it. Signs of one seriously in love!
The boys were all there, and they had so much fun Conor had a lovely time even if he played shooting games much to my horror, he is in love with the size of Chrissy's house.
The lovely Wendie picked us up form the station, I almost didn't recognise her, she has pretty curls happening, her hair is so lovely and longer than i've ever seen it. Julie was there as well and i have more photos of her, i am always surprised at the variety of faces that she can pull.
We had an exciting wait at the train station, are own personal dancing man, Chrissy was horrified that there was a strange man and wouldn't let us go till the train got in LOL I asked Conor if he would like him for his new daddy but i don't think he had much money and he wasn't really a very good dancer.

Wednesday 070103
I worked ugh and Conor made honeycomb and Hagrid got some serious zzzzzs

Tuesday 070102
i went back to work, the office is deserted and like an arctic freeze, i forgot my jacket so was cold cold cold, work was dull and boring and to make it worse i didn't have any batteries for my radio
