I have my mum staying with us this week.  Since all my family lives in Tasmania we frequently have family houseguests - (they used to have their own room in our house but then I decided my demand for a sewing/craft/junk room far outweighed their need for hotel-like amentities).
Mum and I had a little movie date last night and watched this...

It is Hilarious!  It is a love story with a tongue firmly planted in one's cheek since it centre's around the invention of vibrators in the late 1800's.  Mum and I were snorting with laughter through most of it.  And I am now pining for some more of the very luscious Hugh Dancy.

Of course, at the end of the movie as the credits were rolling, they were showing various vibrators through the ages and The Rabbit (don't click on that link unless you really want a visual!!!) pops up on screen. My Mother lets out a cheer and at the top of her very loud voice proclaims, "Oh, that's the one I have!"

Cue my very fast exit with a scarf over my head.


  1. Haha! That's fabulous, your Mama sounds like an absolute hoot. How cool you got to go to a movie with her. I'll have to keep an eye for that movie, looks good xo

  2. Your mum is priceless! I was staying with friends in London (in my hey day pre husband & kids) & all the girls in this share house had "the rabbit". They constantly raved about it, much to my naivety! Then one day one of the girls came home & announced they had a recall on them. They were all devastated!! Can you imagine, "the rabbit" with an electrical fault....oh the mind boggles!

  3. Hysteria - hysterical laughing here! Definitely not something I could ever imagine my own mother saying!


Welcome poppets! I'd love to hear what you have to say so please dont go without saying it!
