Fab Florence - You've got the love, we've got the moves!

Florence and the Machine

Sidney Myer Music Bowl 
Melbourne, Australia 
Wednesday 11th November


Woo Hoo. Look at us! 
The whole family enjoying indie rock band Florence and the Machine in Melbourne this week
Such fun, up the front amongst the Bands friends. 
When Florence Welch says 'turn and hug the people around you', you do as told.
I hugged a very glamorous lady next to me, 
'Who are you?' I asked, "I'm the backing singers friend," she replied! 
'Who are you???' she questioned. "I'm Little Wandering Wren" I replied 
"Oh!" she said 
I think I carried it off well.


Until the 'Psst Mum, what are you doing?'
I'm dancing, like Florence! I replied.
'No, Mum, no!'
How then? 
'When in doubt copy the backing singers' moves' says daughter no 1

I think we carried it off well
Me, my daughter, the backing singers and the backing singer's friend
We've got the moves!


'Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
 Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"                        
But you've got the love I need to see me through'



'Sometimes it seems the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
But you've got the love I need to see me through'




When friends are gone I know my savior's love is real
You know it's real
Cause you got the love.






'You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love'




Time after time I think it's just no good But

'Cause sooner or later in life, the things you love you lose
But you got the love I need to see me through.'



'You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love
You got the love 
You got the love'



'Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
'Cause I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care" 
'You've got the love I need to see me through'

Anyone for Tennis?

At the Australian Open qualifying tournament... 

Are you ready for the first Grand Slam of the year? The Aus Open starts next week (Monday 13th - Sunday 26 January) but Melbourne is already in full swing (ha ha) with tennis players and tennis action. 


You can pay to watch some of the top seeded Men's players in action at the Kooyong Classic, just down the road. Or, you can join me for what I say is one of the best value tennis, indeed let's say sporting tickets in the world. The Australian Open qualifying tournament (Jan 8 -11), where you can wander in for free. Yes free!

The 'Qualies' is one of the secret treasures of the Aus Open where players compete and must win matches on three consecutive days to secure one of the last remaining spots in the main draw.
For the past seven years we have been a host family for tennis players, which is how we have become so familiar with the highs and lows of this lead up event... 
So would you like a sneak peak inside Melbourne Park, whi…

Keep Calm And Birthday On!

So far I'm onto my fourth country celebrating my birthday. Usually, I don't fuss much about birthdays, I'm not one for the big girls night out, or to treat myself with a big splurge... 
But this year is different. I've moved country. I now have a new visa in my passport enabling me to stay in the Kingdom of Thailand until May 2018. I'm away from the kids and the dog and Mr Wren looked at his work calendar, scratched his head and declared a meeting with dinner on my birthday.

I thought for a moment about pulling the old 'I can't believe you've got a meeting with dinner on my birthday AND it's International Women's Day' complaint, but wait a moment, no... That's a perfect excuse to celebrate with everyone, everywhere! 
'Hey, but I thought you said  you never bothered much about birthdays...'
I can hear him call out as I am part way to booking a flight to Malaysia and using all his Airmiles for a return trip to the UK!

He's right, I&#…

Bangkok Blogger

Life is not about finding ourselves it is about creating ourselves! George Bernard Shaw

Cooee! It's me calling in from Thailand. Sorry, it's been a while, it's been a tad busy. Still, we've not done badly. We've moved into our temporary apartment and are well on the way to finding something more permanent. We're overlooking the American Embassy compound, which is acres of impressive greenery in amongst the high rise buildings. I love it, I can even hear the little birds sing in the morning.
So welcome to my new life as .... drum roll please, Hmmm actually, I have no bleedin’ idea, so how about Bangkok Blogger for now?
How would you feel if you were to arriving in a new country, where you know no-one, and you're not even sure what your life will entail? For me, it was a feeling of excitement, crossed with a rolling of the eyes, a smile and my 'here we go again' expression. 
Of course, this always happens Mr Wren was away travelling and so I rocked up for …
