Tomorrow its the time for the exhibition "Life in Style". Today we did the stand and put up all the nice cupcake cases, sign and photos. It´s so many nice things on this exhibition. The girl next to us sells fabric and the one behind us sells silver jewlleries. She told us that it´s two diffrent exhibitions in Melbourne this weekend but this one is more high standard. You can see that when you walk around. So tomorrow they open at 1pm and at 6pm they will serve wine and some snacks and it will close at 9pm.

New hairstyle

I look this good when I came back from the hair dresser. The man who cut my hair David lived in Bangkok for 7 years and just moved back to Melbourne a year ago. He asked me what I thought about Melbourne and before I respond he said - boring don´t you think!!! He´s from Scotland from the begining and he would like to move back to Europe or Asia again. He had a Hairdresser School in Bangkok. He was really nice to talk to and he also think its hard to get to know new people here. His wife was thai and had a massage school here.

King of scores

Today was our turn to score at Jennys basketball team. Anders went for a score class to learn the basic. When we came the other team parent who also scored was not that good at the clock so she wanted to score so Anders was in charge of the clock. What a challenge..... But the game finished with Balwyn Blazers as winner and that is Jennys team. They just won with one point so the teams was very equal. A very good match.

Lake Mountain and snow

Jenny went with her friend Claire to Lake Mountain today to see snow. It is a two hour car ride from Melbourne. Sadly it was not that much snow and the snow they saw was very weet. They could build a half igloo that was all.

The Proposal

Today I went to the movie myself to see "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock (Margret) and Ryan Reynolds (Andrew). When high-powered book editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she´s actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant Andrew, who she´s tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. A nice comedy and laughs but quit bredictible.

Lukas and his friend Cassy baked australian scones with choklat inside. When they were ready you eat them with jam and cream. I think we had flour all over the kitchen when they were done.

When tragedy strikes they turn their backs on home and embark on a journey of survival. They don´t say many words during the movie but it is a strong and very touthing story about the two teenagers. I can recomend seeing it.
