The Wombats Concert

IMG_5799.jpg

Athena, Christy and myself were very excited to be seeing The Wombats in concert. We all paid for our own tickets, so it was a concert we all wanted to attend (in other words, I wasn’t just doing Mum duty this time :-)).

The support band Circa Waves were awesome. Best support band I have ever seen. Purchased their album the next day. And really hope I get to see them headlining their own gig one day.

Of course, the band we’d come to see was pretty amazing as well. We sung along to all the songs and had a really great night.

I really enjoy concerts at the Hordern Pavillion as (since I have no desire to be in the most pit) I can sit (in comfort) pretty close to the stage and get a great view. And even better photos and video (when I zoom in).

If you’d like to see more of my whole day, or just the concert, be sure to watch the vlog:

June in Photos

June was a mixed month as far as my health and I suffered a lot of migraines. But I did celebrate my birthday and was luckily well for Supanova. We had a few cold days but for the most part the month was very mild.

Athena made more progress with her driving and is doing really well, both in my car…

IMG_4721.jpg

and her manual…

There was a trip to Costco.

There were lots of lovely skies.

Time for a short walk….

Rosie being extra cute.

Decluttering and tidying the kitchen drawers with Athena’s help.

And I also sorted out my candles and candle holders.

We still manage to have a few games nights each week and are currently enjoying this new game we got at Supanova.

Current bag I’m using (while waiting at an appointment).

Finally soup weather.

And time to wash the dog toys.

For the first time ever I saw Yellow tailed Black Cockatoos behind our home. They are HUGE!!

 

IMG_5083.jpg

Had a craving for toberlone after seeing it on YouTube.

IMG_5093.jpg

Found this gorgeous flower  (rose?) outside my Granny’s home.

IMG_2472.jpg

Received a beautiful gift from my online friend, Debbie.

IMG_2474.jpg

There was an unexpected breakfast of pancakes made by Kevin.

IMG_2481.jpg

We had a lovely lunch out with Nan, Pop and Granny.

My veggie burger was delicious.

And Kevin and I had a day date – seeing Inside Out (which we both loved)…

and having lunch at the Hogs Breath Cafe.

Supanova Weekend

Having had such a good time at Supanova the last two years, we decided this year we’d attend both Sat & Sun. Athena & Christy also decided to make their own outfits for cosplay. Athena was inspired by Bill Cipher from Gravity Falls (Thea’s friend Harriet went as Mable Pines) and Christy was Princess Luna from My Little Pony.

IMG_4865.jpg  

IMG_2450.jpg

We arrived before opening on Saturday…. to a big crowd. But once the doors opened at 10am it wasn’t too long a wait to get in.

IMG_4875.jpg

There were quite a few people people we wanted hear talk this weekend.. starting with Graham McTavish (from Outlander and The Hobbit). Loved him. He was such a great storyteller.

 

IMG_4895.jpg

Athena and Harriet went off by themselves but also spent some time with us and Athena was so excited finding other cosplayers from their favourite shows.

IMG_4909.jpg

IMG_4910.jpg

And this guy from Mad Max.

IMG_4923.jpg

After we had some pizza for lunch and checked out some more stands Kevin & I ended up going to talk by two guys from the Power Rangers. Not huge fans of the shows, we still really enjoyed this. And were quite shocked to find they had been payed so little they couldn’t even afford to by a car and hence left the show (which was making millions).

IMG_4920.jpg

While waiting (yep, the weekend involved quite a bit of this) we enjoyed chips on stick.

IMG_4926.jpg

Christy found another pony. We later found out she actually made this costume – wow!!

IMG_4927.jpg 

IMG_2447.jpg

 

IMG_4930.jpg

Time for the cosplay competition. I don’t know who won because we left before the judging.

IMG_4939.jpg

IMG_4947.jpg

A few more photo ops. Christy had been so thrilled earlier when someone had requested her photo.

IMG_4960.jpg

 

IMG_4954.jpg

Back again for round two on Sunday. We decided to arrive just after opening – which worked well and we avoided the line and just walked right in. But it seemed a little quieter today anyway.

IMG_4962.jpg

We went straight away to line up for Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) and Bonny Wright (Ginny Weasley) from Harry Potter. We waited almost an hour but at least it meant we got to be right up near the front on this huge crowd.

 

IMG_4964.jpg

Another great session but Jason really stole the show.

IMG_4975.jpg

IMG_4991.jpg

More photo ops for Athena.

IMG_5003.jpg

IMG_5022.jpg

IMG_5023.jpg  IMG_5024.jpg

There weren’t many food choices so it was pizza again for lunch (though we had to wait about 10mins for another delivery). Then it was off to the Brady Bunch Panel. With 3 guests I think this should have been longer, but it was fun anyway.

IMG_5010.jpg

Athena & Christy wanted to try out the game Magic. Looks a bit too complicated for me.

IMG_5027.jpg

Christy had been to the same shop about 6 times trying to get a Discord (from My Little Pony) and tried one last time before we walked out the door. She was SO HAPPY they had finally put them on the shelves.

IMG_5030.jpg

After two fun filled days it was time to say goodbye to Supanova for another year. We will be back, and maybe for the whole three days next year….

Birthday Celebrations

IMG_4649.jpg

This years birthday celebrations started a little early with a lovely lunch of Thai at Mum & Dad’s.

IMG_4653.jpg

IMG_4654.jpg

Followed by birthday cake.

IMG_4655.jpg

IMG_4662.jpg

Yum !!

IMG_2362.jpg

On my actual birthday I unfortunately had a bad migraine. But it was relieved somewhat with the arrival of these beautiful flowers – a lovely gift from my parents.

IMG_2368.jpg

From the one bunch I was able to get 3 vases – which meant I could spread them around.

IMG_2373.jpg

Then for lunch Athena & I met Mel and Kevin at Au Lac – my fav. Vegan Vietnamese restaurant.

IMG_4696.jpg

IMG_4699.jpg

As always everything was delicious, and it was nice to catch up with Mel before Athena & I had to head off to an appointment.

IMG_4701.jpg

Later in the afternoon Mum & Dad came over with some gifts. My main present from them is a ticket to see Robbie Wlliams, but I scored a few extras. Plus gifts from my Granny & my Aunties.

IMG_2374.jpg

And they bought me another cake. The same as we had on the weekend since it’s my fav.

IMG_4707.jpg

Then to finish off my birthday – no cooking dinner – instead we got takeaway pizza. Yum !!
