Fancy Dress at Work

Every year in December, my work has a dress up day.
99% of people go all out and dress up amazingly.
This year, rather than our usual team themes, we decided to to individual dress ups.
The theme, which I copied off someone who goes to my church is "A famous, film or fairytale character starting with the first letter of your name"
I debated about going as Betty White, I thought that way I can bring in my knitting!
Eventually, I decided that it was summer and I needed a summer costume.
So I started searching and found Bindi Irwin. I admire Bindi, she's such a great advocate for wildlife.
So a month ago I phone Australia Zoo and ordered a name badge, this week I dyed my shirt and I even borrowed my Dad's giant crocodile that he bought when he was in Australia about seven years ago.

In other great news, tomorrow I take my caravan out to the beach for three week away from technology and most importantly - work!
There's no mobile phone signal either. It's always the best time of the year.
See you in a month!

Pirate Friday

Last Friday, my husband had his work 'end of year' function
This year they decided that everyone shoud dress as a pirate. Grrr!
So thats exactly what we did
I still had to go to my work in the morning, but at lunchtime I was able to leave and head to JJ's work to catch a ride with them
We headed out to the country, where some genius has created a fun park
Everyone decided that lunch must be eaten first so on went the BBQ and when it was time to turn them, well... someone forgot the tongs
Husband decided his pirate hook would be a fantastic substitue
We went on a flying fox, did archery and claybird shooting 
All while dressed as pirates... 

Next Friday is my work annual dress up day!
I'm not dressing as a pirate...
