As you can see things look a little different here at the moment, all of my links have been blasted into oblivion, so I am working on getting that happening again.

On the home front there has been a lot of work, a fair bit of exercise, bliss that the weather is warming again, a six years olds birthday party, and some moments of true happiness.

More details later, with pictures too, but right now I am at work and need to get back to things.

That's my boy

A couple of posts ago I briefly mentioned my son was sitting an exam for acceptance into the selective stream at our local high school.

I am so happy to say we got his test results and he has been offered a place. I am so proud of him. His results were awesome, the average was 54 percent, and he finished with 75 percent. This is a university set, and marked exam which covers all students in NSW. The most interesting part is that he didn't even finish answering all of the questions as he ran out of time, so he did really well with the ones he did answer.

Very happy news for our household.

Falling out of love...

Its hard to say this out loud (OK well in type) but I think I am falling out of love...

With Greys Anatomy.

I devoured the first season, waited impatiently for the second, then the third, but you know what? I am not sure I want to watch the next one. While the third season started out all right, it has for me gone badly down hill towards the end.

There have been moments that I loved. Alex and Addison - loved it. When Meredith died and we hear from Denny about how he still feels Izzie, then at the end of the episode, she feels him too - loved it.

I think it was the right time for Ellis Grey to die, and for Meredith to start to move on.

I LOOOOOOVE McSteamy, and toward the end of the season he seems more like a real person.

I also LOVE Bailey, she has got to be the best character in the entire show, she is the voice of reason, the seemingly unassailable, but she has an empathy, compassion and vulnerability that she allows to show here and there.

I am so over Mer and Der. I love McDreamy, but he needs to see that Meredith is so not right for him, he cant save her from herself, he needs to get out.

But the thing that has ruined it for me is the George/Izzie/Callie thing. I mean George. If you were looking for a leading man to put into a love triangle would you really think George?!? Well I wouldn't. I just cant see a girl like Izzie being infatuated with George, and I cant see a girl like Callie being infatuated with him either. Both of them are successful, independent, gorgeous women, and he... well he is just George. Sorry people I am just not believing this one. I don't see any chemistry, I cant be convinced that this is right. I think Katherine Heigle is doing a fantastic job as Izzie don't get me wrong, but the idea is just not believable for me.

And as for Christina - what has happened to you? From the irritating, know it all, tell it straight "surgeon" to, to ... I cant even describe it, but I don't like it.

I hope they resolve these situations early in the next season, because it is killing the love for me.
