Not-so-blue hair

A few months ago I dyed my hair blue!

8 weeks later, the blueness has washed out and I'm left with a light greeny washed-out colour. I plan to buy some more Manic Panic and colour my own hair when I get the time, but right now this is what it looks like ....

Moore River Relaxation B&B - second visit

Our holidays has lately been either camping with Jimmy, or quick 1-night getaways just Rob and me on our own. Last year we discovered Moore River Relaxation B&B, a great relaxing place to try floatation therapy and chill out. So this year when I received an email from them celebrating a "Certificate of Excellence" from TripAdvisor with a special deal of free floatation for every couple, it was well worth it and I would highly recommend trying it.

The ultracomfy bed and room beckons with all the amenities and little touches you could ask for

So this time around, Brad introduced us to "smudging" - which was an added quirk and worth a try!

We could also choose a tarot card before entering the floatation tank, to ummm .... dwell upon. This was mine - Rain .... purification ..... Rob and I had fun making up scenarios for our cards  ;)

And this is me after my float! The magnesium salts in the water (and a partly-lying down camera angle) softens my skin and lines ..... haha .... I am very relaxed!

With Jimmy safely tucked up in bed, Rob and I indulge in the spa under the night sky, and the warmth from the chiminea.

Preprimary Book Week - a box for Mr Strong

Last month, we celebrated Book Week with Jimmy. Kids are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character from a book, and seeing how we have lots of Mr Men books, Rob suggested the idea of going as Mr Strong. Mr Strong is basically a square red box so it was a genius idea, and Rob did a fantastic job of spray-painting a child-friendly box:

Unfortunately, Mr Strong didn't make it to centre stage ... he only made it as far as the classroom, when Jimmy decided that his friends would laugh at him.

With me holding Mr Strong outside the classroom, Mr Dad makes a dash home for the indomitable Iron Man costume - this has seen lots of wear from Chinese New Year last year (red woh ....) and Halloween.
