I'm full of a cold and I feel as though I have been awake for days. As much as I'd love to, I'm just not up to blogging tonight. My mind is too weary.

However, I could not go to bed without sharing a couple of pictures from today. It was my Nan's 85th birthday. Look at what she got!!

Can you believe it? I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time. I guess no one can accuse my family of being prudish! Eccentric, mad and unconventional would be better words!

Nan was listening to some of her favourite songs from the war years, and was reminiscing about her days at the Bacchus Marsh army training centre, when he walked in dressed as a soldier. The timing couldn't have been better. Although, I don't think Nan really knew what was going on until he started getting his kit off. She was a great sport though, and even managed to cop a feel on a few occasions. Naughty Nan!

Thankfully the show was family friendly - half the audience were kids! I spent most of the show watching my kid's faces - absolutely priceless. I didn't expect that my daughter would be watching her first male stripper at the age of 2! My son is the bigger concern though. Within minutes of Mr Stripper leaving, my eldest son already had at least two of his moves down pat!

I hope a good nights sleep wipes his memory of the afternoon. I don't fancy having to explain the choreography to his teacher tomorrow!

Happy birthday, Nan! We love you.
