look out Azzurri

Australia has woken with great excitement this morning - the socceroos are through to the round of 16!!!!!!
20,000 fans braved the cold and dark of a winter Melbourne morning to watch the game on the big screen at Federation Square, in the middle of the city.
Now it's bring one Italia - and let me tell you, the Azzurri are one breed of blue that will be getting no love from this kuka!

calm blue buddies

These are my buddies who sit on my desk and help me relax during those stressful times at work:

Pen Man is always at the ready with a writing implement just incase I need to make an important note to self (or anyone else hehe)
Then there's my MoeMoe Baby aaaaahhhhh
She sits there on her lilly pad smiling and nodding at me all day, agreeing with my every word. So cute yet so agreeable!

ole ole ole ole

Well it is world cup fever here in Australia.
See, we haven't been there in 32 years so its been big news!
I have to say I'm a bit of a football fan, having lived Europe =)
Unfortunately there is a really inconvenient time difference between us and Europe, so the live games are on at 11pm, 2am and 5am =S
So there I am, in the middle of the night, heart in mouth and knitting in hand!
Australia's coach, Dutchman Guus Hiddink, is being hailed as a national hero and here is my 'krafty' tribute:

So, yesterday I made my first ever purchase from (as if the Robbie Williams tickets weren't excitement enough!!!! hehe)
I can't say too much just yet, because it was a gift for someone - so if you know anyone whose birthday it is today shhhhhhhhhhh hehe
Maybe tomorrow.....
I'll be back later with more info, and hopefully some pics of some blueness =)

Today I got tickets for the Robbie Williams concert!
I am super excited, even though the concert isn't on until december 17 =S
The tickets sold out within 30 min, so I was really lucky.

bring on the blues

Yay I heart blue! =)
I'm really excited about working on some blue projects this month, so it is kinda funny that my first project this month is pink - a bunny called Belinda =)
She is from a free Spotlight project sheet, and is for my work colleague Belinda's daughter.
I've still been knitting up blue squares for my patchwork blanky, and have a few other blue projects on the go.

It's been a beautiful weekend here, chilly but blue sky =)
It was my weekend off from work, so we spent it relaxing - a Noodle House laksa dinner (the Noodle house is famous in these parts for having the greatest laksa in town - this could be debated - I must get together with Beauzo to make official some of this debate -, but it is a mighty fine laksa!)and Wig & Pen drinks with friends on Friday night, followed by a late lunch then the X-men on Saturday and a fabulous sleeping in on Sunday =)

Also on Saturday I made two exciting purchases.....
Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation!!!!!
I have been looking for this everywhere, and was starting to think I would have to order it from Amazon, and suddenly there it was on the shelf before me.
I really like the bags, and the mudflap chick tank, among other things.
I must make a list of what i want to make....

The other purchase was a jar of Chilli Jelly from Food Lovers
Food Lovers is a divine gourmet food store, many of their products are made instore.
The Chilli Jelly is heaven with some brie on crackers mmmmmmmm
Visiting the Fresh Food Markets is really fun - there are stores selling organic foods, a great book store, amazing kitchen-ware and a pet shop with the cutest little kittens - awwww =)

Must go check out the Australia - Netherlands football match oooh I'm getting excited about the World Cup, and seeing all that orange is certainly increasing that excitement level!
I was living in the Netherlands when the last European Championship was played, and the atmosphere amongst the fans was amazing - I've never felt anything like it!

Ooh, just in case I haven't used the word 'excited' enough yet, I have just got my hands on the rest of the Veronica episodes I have been waiting on =D
