    Danceparty Unlimited

    My husband is away.

    This means we live life a little differently than 'everyday'.
    For some reason, being freed of making a 'proper' nightly meal offers me much more time to do things.
    Perhaps it's the time of day i'm most active ? Who knows.

    So last night we had cheese and bikkies for dinner ( it's ok, there was fruit and veg .. okay .. just fruit then, during the day ) and watched the ultra-camp "Celebrity Singing Bee" ( whereas normally, the boy would have to retire to his room because it's his bedtime, and CSI would be on )

    God, we had fun. It's was 80's night. I romped it in, and i'm sure the boys were impressed with my karaoke skills. Absolutely.
    I pick my audiences wisely.

    I hope I don't scar them for life..

    My girls really don't like me to sing because I get the words so badly wrong. It annoys them both intensely.

    So glad you have a trackydak standard!

    Ahh the 80's, what larks eh?

    Cosy said...

    Nah, they'll be grateful for the introduction to the 80s when they go to an 80s party in about 20 years time!

    I have to admit we watched Singing Bee too last night.

    Don't tell anyone but I sometimes like it when Lyndon is away with work too - meal times are so much less fuss free - love it. (Cheese and biscuits sounds good!) Lyndon is going away for one whole week in 2 weeks time. I love being able to eat what I like to eat for dinner. Cheezels anyone? Kidding, I'm kidding...

    Monet gets annoyed when I sing. Apparently it is okay for her but not for I. Typical.

    Mr Mangroves goes to stay at a friend's house overnight sometimes, and I can honestly say that I don't miss the snoring :P That's also the night I stay up late watching Battlestar Galactica... hmm. btw; they say we start remembering things approximately from the age of 3, so sing away, there's a cut-off date whereby you might have to show a little restraint :)

    Haha!I know this feeling :) When Hubby is away it seems to free me up physically and emotionally so that I can just let it all hang out that little bit more. 80s karaoke with the kids is a new one though .. ;)

    DH is away every week for work and I secretly love it! I get to watch my own shows and spend as much time on the net as I want.

    I never cook dinner - cheese and biccies or chocolate is standard fare. (don't worry - the baby gets vegies). :D

    Fortunately the baby is too oyung to object to my singing... yet!

    I always get a lovely surprise when I visit and see that new banner!

    What a great night! See why I love my nights on my own so much?

    BTW my bloglines showed a different post earlier. Something to do with jewellery!

    I'm going to an 80s night tomorrow for a kinder fundraiser. Happy days.

    KikiMiss said...

    Hey..we're like that here when the cat is away. In fact I wish it were more often, my days are so motivated and I achieve many more things on the 'to do' list.

    Love the 'bum to bum' shot :-)

    Stuff childhood memories are made of, for sure.

    joke said...

    My sons have grown up listening to my judiciously selected 1980s soundtrack...which, to my beloved's annoyance, they prefer to her 1970s disco drivel.



    Stacey said...

    That sounds like a lot of fun.
    The slack dinners are the best part of the husband being absent. Oh, that and being able to lay diagonally across the bed. Heaven.
    Gotta love a bit of 80s dance music.

    It is a general hit, having the moth away for the night!
    I am sure your kids had fun as well!

    Shel said...

    We're huge on the trackydaks here too.

    PS - you've been tagged for a meme.

    Claire (ethel loves fred) said...

    Ha! LOVE the 80's, NOW, didn't at the time, I was far too 'alternative' to enjoy mainstream 80's!
    Start saving now for thoes therapy sessions!!

    caramaena said...

    Ahh the 80's. I don't watch the show but I'll bet your karaoke was a lot of fun :)

    I'm afraid I wouldn't be in demand in our household... unfortunately I get asked to stop singing by the youngest member of the family.

    Victoria said...

    Yes, it's the freedom from cooking 'proper' meals that gives the sense of umlimited time, I'm sure of it.
    p.s. GREAT label! Great!
