the decorations, a big long cake, whoopee!

For more general prettiness, check out Trelise Cooper's latest fashions on Runway Reporter. Some jolly lovely frocks and frillies.

Just finished a fab book called "The Lost Cosmonaut" bout a Scotsman's travels in lesser known Russian territories like Tatarstan. Do read it.

And now ripping through a recent discovery by my favourite author - writing as Danuta de Rhodes, "The Little White Car" is as gemlike and fabulous at the other books he has written as Dan Rhodes.

Then I will take a diversion into "Tommyland" - ROCK ON!!


Quizzing again last night - we had three teams and got the 1,2,3.

Without a trace - an article about the murderers of James Bolger. There was a recent murder in Perth that was attributed to one of the boys. Their crime was called an act of ‘unparalleled barbarity’. Now the two boys who murdered James Bulger are men, their freedom and identities protected by the courts. So what has become of them? By David James Smith
