About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

My Guy...

On Saturday Matt and I spent the day at Tahune Airwalk to see Guy Sebastian live.  It was a great day out; perfect weather, relaxing picnic lunch beautiful surroundings and great entertainment.  It was quite an intimate concert (only something like 250 tickets) which really contributed to the feeling there.  It kinda felt like a big family reunion (and with half the Huon Valley population there it nearly was!!) I know Guy Sebastian isn't everyone's cup of tea but I have to admit I became an instant fan when I heard him sing for his audition in the very first Australian Idol Competition.  He is great on stage and surprisingly funny.  
I loved all of the songs he performed, which was a selection from all of his albums.  

Support act was Tassie boy DeWayne Everettsmith who was an Idol contestant in 2007. 

Check out this photo! I was standing at the side of the stage snapping a few pics 
when he noticed and gave me a little Guy Smile - he he

Matt appreciates the excellent musician Guy Sebastian is but R&B isn't really his style - not typically mine either - but he tagged along because he didn't want me to go alone.  I'm glad we went together but I really should have taken the girls with me,  there were so many mothers and daughters there and they would have loved it.  Maybe next year we can have a girls day out.

"Those in the know" said 850 turned up. When you count the number of buses was surely a ton more than 250. And Guy has, according to the media, "one of the largest fan bases in Australia" its just the media USED to state otherwise. Its why he's appeared at all those massive venues usually. LOVE your photos. Thank you for the great blog. (Ex Taswegian Prins)
