Awwww! Another Brit in the world…

Nope, sorry, no baldheaded dribbling newborns here. Just a big congratulations to my sister-in-law, Melly, who, looking all resplendent, attended an official ceremony yesterday and is now a British subject. Three cheers for Melinda!

Pip ray Pip ray Pip ray!

This means an end to immigration issues for her side of the marriage. Now little bro gets to wait a year so he can become an Aussie and then both parties get to come and go freely between nations. Good show.

And speaking of Aussies, Bill and I were up late last night gripped by the Brisbane v Port Adelaide Australian Football grand final. I was rooting for the Brisbane Lions (roar!) while Bill was on the side of the Power. It was highly entertaining mayhem with the game continuing as players duked it out on the pitch, and the Lions coming back from behind to take the lead at half time. Unfortunately however, half-time came at 2am our time and we both conked out and crawled to bed so have no idea who won. A google search isn’t doing very well in providing me with the info either…bah humbug! I hope my team prevailed.

And speaking of fun violent sports…it’s very lame but it’s looking highly likely that their will be no ice hockey in the US this year. Due to some disagreement the owners have locked out the players and the dissent is at a dead lock. Though good news for Europe I believe as many of the players are returning to their home countries to sign up for teams there. Typical, just as we get cable TV too. Bah humbug.

Oh dammit. Port Adelaide 113 – Brisbane 73. Rats, got to put up with Bill’s gloating now. Grrrrr.

    Thanks.

    I had a look at that link, it looks great but is out of our price range. The nights we are looking at seem to be a minimum of $160. Still pretty reasonable when converted into Sterling, but not for us who are in the dollar system now. Rats!

    I guess we’ll keep looking.
