Mum on the loose: Day 1

This morning I am nursing a pretty good hangover after celebrating a little too much at the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers soiree. Hey! I am one of the Top 50. Pretty cool hey? I  am stoked to have made the cut again this year surrounded by so many fabulous blogs I love and having a chance to win some pretty cool prizes.

I left home yesterday around midday and hung out at Mum’s before heading out. She took my picture before I walked out the door and made me pose like a tosser (which isn’t hard seeing as I am a tosser). It wasn’t long (OK maybe 27 champagnes) from things to go from this:

To this:

A Tiger from Harrys followed by a Hotdog from Harrys. Alone. At 1.20am. It appears that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl!

Watch out Melbourne, I am headed your way in a few hours…


  1. Congratulations. I love Harrys x

  2. Huzzah!! Gotta lurve the pose, too cute. Enjoy Melbs, she’s ready for you!

  3. Ah Harrys! The sign of a good night out. Enjoy the next few days.

  30. If thats what a tosser looks like as a babe, I’ll take two 😉

    Voted.. Oh and well done you tosser x

  31. Dude. Were you out on the turps by yourself? Damn fool, wish I had a ticket to ride.

    Tiger is my favourite too. I clearly remember being completely and absolutely drunk as a skunk eating pies and watching the rats on the pier. So romantic.

    Was so great to meet you IRL after I staked you out at the bar. (What kind of nerdburger am I?)
