Four things meme

My blog's name has been very accurate lately, but a tag from Helen has motivated me extract the digit and post! Thanks Helen!

Four Jobs I've Had in My Life:

2. The Castle
3. Love Actually

Four TV Shows I Watch:
1. The Bill

    Welcome back, Kelly! Wow, does this place in Tasmania look incredible - have you been there? I may need to add this to my list of vacation destinations.

    And I have to admit that I just can't get into chili crab. Too messy.

    Hey Venitha, yes, the Wheelhouse Apartments are absolutely beautiful. We stayed there for two nights during our honeymoon in May last year. If you're craving cold weather, Tasmania is the place to go!

    Mmm, the chilli crab is messy, but that's why you carry around those small packets of tissues! It's worth it :)

    Hi Lushlife, thanks :) Real life has been getting in the way!

    Good to have you blogging again - we were starting to think that you and RJ may have had an "elderly Sydney-sider" incident... and we might have to come over and find out what the smell was...! ;)

    Hey Helen, yep, we're off to NY in November - got a deal we couldn't resist at the travel expo!

    Hi Pseudo Chef, thanks! Hope you enjoyed your holiday :)

    Hi!
    I am looking for a caramel slice recipe. I lived in Brisbane from 2000-2003 in Manly and loved it. Now we are back in Calgary, Canada. Would love to duplicate the recipe (I keep finding ones with peanut butter and that is not what I want). Can you help?
