    I was... delayed.

    You weren't kidnapped by an evil wizard and imprisoned in an impenetrable tower were you Tom?

    Thanks Casper!

    Kerryn, how did you know!? :eek:

    Alright, here's a little Stevie Wonder...

    I was made to love her

    I was born in Lil' Rock,
    Had a childhood sweetheart,
    We were always hand in hand.

    I was hightop shoes and shirt tails,
    Suzy was in pig tails,
    I know I loved her even then.

    You know my papa disapproved it,
    My mama boohooed it,
    But I told them time and time again,
    "Don't you know I was made to love her,
    Built a world all around her"
    Yah! Hey, hey, hey.

    She's been my inspiration,
    Showed appreciation
    For the love I gave her through the years.

    Like a sweet magnolia tree
    My love blossmed tenderly,
    My life grew sweeter through the years.

    I know that my baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    That's why we made it through the years.

    I was made to love her,
    Worship and adore her,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    All through thick and thin
    Our love just won't end,
    'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

    My baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    And I know I ain't going nowhere.

    I was knee high to a chicken
    When that love bug bit me,
    I had the fever with each passing year.

    Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
    If this whole world crumbles,
    By her side I'll still be standing there.

    'Cause I was made to love her,
    I was made to live for her, yeah!

    Ah, I was made to love her,
    Built my world all around her,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    Oo baby, I was made to please her,
    You know Stevie ain't gonna leave her, no,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    Oo wee baby, my baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    OO my baby loves me....

    Casper - if you're here from the 16th to the 30th, let's make the 23rd the Big Day Out. How's that?

    Another one for Meg. A tribute to the fact she started the secret shed! :D

    'Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
    When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
    I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
    I'll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
    In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
    Everything up to that point had been left unresolved.
    Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail,
    Poisoned in the bushes an' blown out on the trail,
    Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there
    With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
    She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Now there's a wall between us, somethin' there's been lost
    I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed.
    Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
    But nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts
    And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    I've heard newborn babies wailin' like a mournin' dove
    And old men with broken teeth stranded without love.
    Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
    I bargained for salvation an' they gave me a lethal dose.
    I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
    Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine.
    If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born.
    "Come in," she said,
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

    Excellent! That should give you enough time to get used to the unbearably hot weather!

    You guys will have to take pictures so I can see the two of you together, how exciting!

    Here's a little U2...

    Sweetest Thing

    My love she throws me like a rubber ball
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    She won't catch me or break my fall
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Baby's got blue skies up ahead
    But in this I'm a rain cloud
    You know she likes a dry kind of love
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing

    I'm losing you
    Hey hey hey, I'm losing you yeah
    Ain't love the sweetest thing

    I wanted to run but she made me crawl
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Eternal fire, she turned me to straw
    Oh oh, the sweetest thing
    You know I got black eyes
    But they burn so brightly for her
    Mine is a blind kind of love
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing

    I'm losing you
    Oh oh oh, I'm losing you yeah
    Ain't love the sweetest thing
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Oh oh, yeah

    Blue-eyed boy meets a brown-eyed girl
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    You can sew it up but you still see the tear
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Baby's got blue skies up ahead
    And in this I'm a rain cloud
    You know we got a stormy kind of love
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
    Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing

    Oh yeah. I'm not used to that at all. My great fear is that I'll feel sick and bloody hot all the time.

    EDIT: I can stand heat quite well, but up to about 30 degrees Celsius. I never have experienced more than that.

    It's going to be a really hot summer. It's pretty hot now and we're just out of winter. We might have to stick to lots of air-conditioned joints, or drink a lot of sweet, cold beer.

    ;)

    That sounds better already. :D

    One thing you don't have to worry about: I'm not a great sweater. I won't be walking around stinking and with these huge dark spots under my arms and on my back.

    Well the hottest temperature recorded in Queensland was 53C. So at least if it gets any hotter than that, we'll be breaking records!

    In Brisbane, the average November temperature is about 25 I've been told.

    Faithless - Don't Leave

    Packing our bags like people in the movies do
    All severe, and not saying a word
    And I'm sitting down here just watching you, and I'm thinking

    Where has all the love gone
    where's the love gone to
    Don't Leave
    You got me hurting
    Don't Leave
    You know it's never been easy to love someone like me

    Hanging with friends like we used to do
    I didn't know anything was wrong
    last night when I was thinking it through
    Trying to find who am I
    And what you lead me to do
    (Don't Leave)
    There's a record you used to play
    There's Joni singing
    The bed's to big without you
    And I know just what you say
    help me, I'm falling

    Where did all the love go
    Where's the love gone to
    Don't Leave
    You got me hurting
    Don't Leave
    You know it's never been easy to love someone like me
    Don't leave

    Where did all the love go
    Where's the love gone to

    We'll fly around the world
    give you what you're giving me
    I should dress you up in pearls
    finest silk to touch your skin
    don't know hot to write a love song

    Don't Leave
    You got me hurting
    Don't Leave
    You know it's never been easy to love someone like me
    Don't leave
