I'm a Granny!

This little bundle of human is my step grand-daughter. She's in a different city so I've not met her in person yet but I will soon. I can't wait for snuggles! She's just gorgeous and her lovely parents are understandably besotted. So are her aunties, grandparents and, well, everyone!
A few months ago my step daughter asked us all what we wanted to be called - this kid has three grandmothers and three grandfathers. I chose Mamush, which is what my nieces and nephew call me, so as to leave all the G names to the other two.
I'm too young for this!! But also, I'm not! Eep! Tips welcome!

What I've been up to...

 More Constance Ravings! Truth is, I am working a day job which I'm really enjoying but I can't talk about it even if it was interesting to do so, so Constance is the only interesting bit. Oh wait there's something else but that is for my next post!

 Golden Garters Awards, hosting with Mae de la Rue from Sydney, singing possibly the ROPIEST version of Razzle Dazzle em ever!!! We'd like to think it was so bad, it was good hehe.
 My Golden Garter for Favourite MC. Behold how masterfully I manage microphone, clipboard AND award. Those skills got me where I am today hehe.

And THEN there was the NZ Burlesque Festival last weekend, three days of mayhem, music, musings and mugging on stage!!
 Thursday night's Meet and Greet, Clever and I broke out our best Weimar? Vy not? look...
 Yip, we were channelling our best look!!
 And then Mr Lola Illusion joined us for a moment of filling viewing that reminded me of..well, I found the pic!
On the Saturday I taught a workshop in the afternoon but that was it really. So Mr Lola and I went hand in hand to the show- please note the matching cape thrown over his shoulder - he made it from the offcut of my dress! We caused quite a stir, it was a lot of fun to be this EXTRA and not have to perform. Which is fun to, but not three nights in a row thank you!

So that's what I have been getting up to when not doing boring things to pay the mortgage. Cos, well, ain't nothin' going on but the mortgage!
