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…

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 …

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!
