Remember Meatloaf? The singer, not the oven baked variety. When I heard he was the pre-match entertainment for the AFL Grand Final, I was looking forward to what I thought would be a pretty specky performance. Now I’m certainly no great shakes as a singer by any stretch, but after watching this, I’m pretty sure you’ll come to the conclusion that maybe he has been oven baked. The true magic happens between minutes 6 and 7, so do tune in until then. I’ve enjoyed watching the body language of the guy playing the keyboard – make sure you pay attention. According to a YouTube comment, he redeemed himself at his October 6th concert in Brisbane. I hope so- he was certainly an entertainer of some merit in his time. *unfortunately, this review from the Sydney Morning Herald tells another story. : (
School’s still out here until next Monday, and already I can feel the weight of it resting on my shoulders. Holidays are funny things; you feel so light and untethered in the first week, then the slow creep of the next term starts to wind itself into your subconscious, and the leash of expectation begins to pull harder on you. This weekend will see me trying to clean out the linen cupboard, and attend to any other unfinished tasks I promised myself I would do. Let’s see how far I get!
Enjoy whatever comes your way this weekend. Hope it’s a good one. : )

Indeed, the strange pull of the weight of school does drag towards the end of the holidays…and strangely, even whilst on maternity leave! Yet knowing the seasons of the year through its landmark events – third term holidays, Year 12 practice exams, Year 12 final assembly, Speech Night – does provide a nice familiarity to the year, even when you are so snowed under that you don’t get to see the change of actual seasons outside. Will catch up some time; I’m hoping to come to House Debating/PS Friday to help adjudicate, if the little munchkin will let me.
Hope we get to see you Aloma. : )
