Check out this list of my goings on and you'll start to get the idea of just how much I can ram into 6 weeks, whilst still work 5 days a week. It's actually pretty head spinning how much I have been able to achieve really.
- Visited an art showcase
- Hosted a dinner party
- Went shopping for a 'mother of the bride' dress in Melbourne
- Went to friends for dinner
- Went my son's final day of school ceremony
- Went to see the specialist - twice
- Went to a yoga festival in Bendigo
- Wrote my emcee and mother of the bride speeches for the upcoming wedding
- Celebrated Halloween
- Went to the NGV
- Went out for Yum Cha in Melbourne
- Had a spa day with my daughter
- Went to Modiva's for dinner
- Went to a Bridal Shower high tea at The Grand Hyatt in Melbourne
- Went to a Grade 4 overnight camp
- Celebrated my in-laws birthdays with a family dinner
- Got my cat desexed
- Went to my son's year 12 graduation event and dinner
- Had dinner with my mother in Ararat
- Went out for a wellness massage and hydrotherapy spa with my husband
- Had my 28th wedding anniversary and went out for dinner
- And never missed a day of meditation, brain gym or French in the process!
Hopefully, I will deliver it all with just the right amount of magic, humour and joy to make their event run smoothly and seamlessly. May need to sprinkle a little extra magic on my speech though, because I really want Zoe and Ben's day to be extra special!

Running Time: 120 mins
An art house comedy/horror that was written, edited, directed, produced and scored by Anna Biller, an independent feminist American filmmaker who consciously explores feminist themes throughout her work. The Love Witch offers a playful and colourful homage to the 1960's and Technicolour Hammer Horror films whilst probing into contemporary gender roles and stereotypes.
A beautiful young witch named Elaine is looking for a new start in life after the death of her husband. Elaine attempts to use spells and magic in an attempt to find a new suitor, and although she succeeds at getting men to fall in love with her, the long term results are disastrous.
From the dramatic eye make up to the lurid bright-red fake blood effects, The Love Witch is a throwback masterpiece. Amusing and at times visually stunning, this film isn't subtle in any way and although it is slow, it still delivers in so many unique ways. Samantha Robinson is terrific as Elaine, bringing loads of feminine energy and rocking all that swinging '60s fashion with big charm and allure. Jeffrey Vincent Parise also does great job of Wayne, the first man to fall under Elaine's spell and that psychedelic sex scene is utterly unforgettable!
FINAL SAY: Men are like children. They're very easy to please as long as we give them what they want.
