LO:CI. Q & A with Charlie Rubin and Diana Son

Answers Part I

Blast from the Past.

I received a phone call from an old friend today inviting me to a weekend get-together and 50th birthday of one of the guys . Party will be on a Saturday later in the month, sleep-over and then family BarBQ on the Sunday. Sounds like it will be fun. I used to hang out with these lovely people all the time but then life became very busy and I had lost contact except for the occasional phone call.

A couple of weeks after my mum died in ’98, they came to visit one Friday evening of a long week end, told my kids we’re just borrowing your mum(me) for a couple of days. They kept me busy playing cards till 3am, drinkies, meals and socialising with friends who dropped in during the day.
By the time they dropped me off back home on the Sunday I was exhausted but I felt I could then cope with the loss of my mother when I had friends who could give me such loving support.

New Year Resolutions

New Year Resolutions

Well I have achieved one resolution and that was to stop lurking on some message board and to post sometimes

others …

  • to learn to dance Rockabilly
  • to travel more
  • to sell my house
  • to buy a smaller house
  • to buy a new car
  • to spend more time in the garden
  • to make my own clothes
  • to read and use my new Cooking book – Nigella Lawson ‘Good Food Fast’.
  • to take down xmas decorations by mid-January.


I have been on holidays for the last two week but sadly it comes to an end as I will be returning to work on Monday. My supervisor rang this morning to discuss one of my clients with me and was nice enough to appologise for disturbing me during my break. lol.

I haven’t done anything exciting other than the usual xmas/new year actvities as I was so tired from a busy year all I wanted to do was eat/sleep/read/watch TV. Though I did manage to paint my bedroom which was a lovely burgundy colour to a pretty boring creamish as I thought (I’m selling my house) it would be more buyer-friendly and my egg-plant(purple) painted foyer is now white. Hey, it looked nice.

Now all I need to do is move everything back into the bedroom, I’m resisting the urge to update my furnishings I will just have to put up with the boring decor. Hopefully, it will sell and I can downsize into a smaller and more economically to-run home.

Aussie Christmas Songs

Aussie Jingle Bells

Dashing through the bush,
in a rusty Holden Ute,
Kicking up the dust,
esky in the boot,
Kelpie by my side,
singing Christmas songs,
It’s Summer time and I am in
my singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia
on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Engine’s getting hot;
we dodge the kangaroos,
The swaggie climbs aboard,
he is welcome too.
All the family’s there,
sitting by the pool,
Christmas Day the Aussie way,
by the barbecue.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia
on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Come the afternoon,
Grandpa has a doze,
The kids and Uncle Bruce,
are swimming in their clothes.
The time comes ’round to go,
we take the family snap,
Pack the car and all shoot through,
before the washing up.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia
on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.



Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas

Wayne says nothing else will do,
You can keep all your phones with their multiple tones,
Your Nikes and play-stations too,
Cos Wayne’s had visions of riding
Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas

Out on an ocean of blue
So Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas
And only a surfboard will do

Wayne’s been a good boy since Easter,
when the subject of surfboards came up
And Dad suggested “behavioural improvements”
that might reflect on his luck
Now, he doesn’t backchat his mother,
And he does all his homework on cue –
Since Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas
It’s like living with somebody new!

Wayne claims he’s outgrown his boogie-board,
Although he admits it’s been fun
‘Cos he’s done all the flips and the skips and the tricks
And mastered them every one
Now Wayne wants to cruise with the big boys,
He says there are girls out there too
Yeah Wayne wants a surfboard this Christmas
He’s grown up so fast it’s not true


Deck the Sheds ( sung to the tune of Deck the Halls)

Deck the sheds with bits of wattle, fa la la la la la la la la
Whack some gum leaves in a bottle, fa la la la la la la la la
All the shops are open sundies, fa la la la la la la la la
Buy your Dad some sox and undies, fa la la la la la la la la
Deck the sheds with bits of gumtree, fa la la la la la la la la

Hang some deco’s off the plum tree, fa la la la la la la la la
Plant some kisses on the missus, fa la la la la la la la la
Have a ripper Aussie Christmas, fa la la la la la la la la
Say g’day to friends and relies, fa la la la la la la la la
Wave them off with bulging bellies, fa la la la la la la la la

Kids and babies youngies oldies, fa la la la la la la la la
May your fridge be full of coldies, fa la la la la la la la la
Chop the wood and stoke the barbie, fa la la la la la la la la
Ring the folks in Abudabe, fa la la la la la la la la
Pop the stuffing in the turkey, fa la la la la la la la la

Little Mary’s feeling ercky, fa la la la la la la la la
Rally rally round the table, fa la la la la la la la la
Fill your belly while your able, fa la la la la la la la la
Joyce and Joany, Dave and Daryl, fa la la la la la la la la
Sing an Aussie Christmas Carol, fa la la la la la la la la
