Busy busy busy!!!!

I have been so busy the last week or so...
Have had The Beez from Berlin staying with us. They were playing at Newstead Live! festival last weekend but were heere for longer. An absolute delight to have around - and better still! they are returnign whilst on their travels.
They are performing all over the East Coast of Oz, and then some - Adelaide (Spiegeltent) and Darwin, and up to Brissie, Toowoomba etc. Check out the link above for gig dates and get along.
Terribly good - slick and tight performers of everything from very serious (I think) German and Russian songs to farcical skits of all sorts of classics...
AND - they will be on Spicks and Specks some time soon.

I remade a frock of Jula's - it was too cosy under the arms with a way too modest neckline.
So I recut it, and fortunately had more wide dark blue cotton ric-rac in my stash to match the 1960s stuff around the hemline.
This is Jula in her remade 1960's frock. She plays bass in the band, and has a Masters in Theology... (Oooh that sounds like a dating thing - she doesn't need a date!)And here she is on stage:
Check out the boots...

There you are! Was wondering where you had got to. Sounds as though you are having fun.

I was laying in bed last Sunday morning, snoozing and half-listening to Australia All Over, as you do. Ian McNamara was talking to someone about the festival at Newstead, who described you as "a wonderful woman". Yay for Jas!
