Tis the season to be winning ...

Don't you love school holidays?

As if the expense of Christmas is not enough, the kids have conveniently experienced huge growth spurts, rendering just about every item of clothing and shoes unwearable.

Which has meant far too many excursions to shopping centres at the very time of year I try to avoid them.

Luckily, there are some things which make the odd shopping foray worthwhile.

Spotted at K-Mart, Mt Ommaney. Oh how the kids laughed. Yes the knickers are on the floor. 

From another angle

I don't like the trend between faceless and limbless manniquins either. It's all a bit ...disconcerting. Shopping can be scary.
Anyway, following the shopping, I put the kids to work, drawing the winners of the Burlesque movie giveaway. They love helping out with giveaways, though they complain that they would like to win something too!

But I digress.

Thanks to Sony Pictures Australia, the following commenters have each won a double, in-season pass to Burlesque. That's the one starring Cher and Christina Aguilera. Apparently they both glow throughout the flick with rude good health (and in Cher's case at least, loads of surgery.)

And Christina Aguilera sings a lot and shakes her booty. And there's a story in there too. Fancy!

My spies tell me this is one for the girls, however, because of the amount of Christina Aguilera on display, even chick-flick-hating boys will probably find much to enjoy.

But never fear, there is eye candy for the girls as well, in the form of Cam Gigandet...

For the win!
The lucky winners are:
Aussie Waffler

Contact me with your snail mail addys (and your real name where necessary), and I'll pop your pass in the mail.

After the movie, perhaps you'd like to do some non-scary shopping... xo

Oh my, oh my, oh my!!!!
The last time I went to see a grown-up movie was when I was pregnant with my 6 year old boy!
Looks like the movie date on my Christmas wish list just came true.
Thank you so much. xxx
