Weekend wind-up

1. Chinese and karaoke are a match made in heaven.
What better way to help a work colleague celebrate her hen's night than plates full of good chinese. glasses overflowing with wine and a list of cheesy karaoke songs longer than a 10k marathon. Britney Spears would have been proud but Cindy Lauper may not have enjoyed hearing True Colours being belted out purposely off key.

2. Knee injuries mean flat shoes
I love my dog. Maybe more than I love clothes (and that's a big call). But when he runs into you in full flight and causes your knee to bend a way it's not supposed to, for a split second I really disliked him. But it didn't last long as I realised that having to wear flat shoes for the next 6 weeks is fine but only owning 2 wearable pairs is not. And so off to the shops. Thanks to this month’s Instyle magazine (with the stunning Sandra Bullock on the cover), I picked up a great pair of black ballet flats from Target for just $34.95. A great copy of the pair I had my eyes on in Wittner for 3 months but without the $130 price tag. Thanks to the people behind Cotton On, Rubi Shoes has popped up in most major shopping centres in Australia. For $20, I couldn’t go past the basic silver flats (they go great with almost every colour in my wardrobe).

3. My man is caling me a Nanna but I don’t care
Being home by midnight on a Saturday and making grilled cheese on toast doesn’t make me Grandma material just yet but buying a 41 pack of ribbons and a bunch of card making bits and pieces might just push me over the edge. Yes, sipping tea and making thank you cards is something that normally goes on in retirement homes but when you see the look on someone’s face when they realise you’ve taken the time to DIY their card, it’s well worth the Nanna name calling. Get yourself into your nearest Big W and head for the stationery isles – if you’ve got even the slightest creative bone in your body, you’ll walk out with enough bits and pieces to fill your entire linen cupboard.

4. Thank god for V8 Supercars
The only thing making me feel less of a Granny on this rainy Sunday afternoon was watching Michael Caruso win the second race at Darwin’s Skycity Triple Crown. Jamie Whincup might have snared top spot on the podium yesterday but thankfully the Garry Rogers Motorsport team got their number 1 driver across the line to give Holden fans something to cheer about. Now all we need is Will Davison to overtake Whincup on the championship ladder and life will be sweet.

5. Sunday Roasts with the in-laws
The best way to finish the weekend. Enough said.
