A get together to watch the grand finale of Melodifestivalen 2010. A frantic effort to download the show and have it ready to show on the big screen just a couple of hours later! It all paid off and everyone had a fabulous time. Even if no-one agreed with the winner!

This year we provided snacks - a very good idea as you can see!

A group shot - most of the Melodifestivalen revellers

Crazy Louisa was given to emoting Melodifestivalen entries at the drop of a hat

Oops, she's off again and this time Andrew is getting in on the act. Patrick is in the background.

Not one, but two large Swedish flags this year! Andrew & Louisa almost look like a married couple in this one!

Andrew is ALWAYS ready for his close-up!

The emotion was all too much for some!

It was just another Wednesday pub night but I decided to take a few shots. As usual, it was fun and lively with lots of talking, lots of laughs and lots of beer. Hard to believe this Wednesday night tradition has been going on since 1993!

All the pictures are clickable to see the full-sized versions.

Paul K and the Countess were in town visiting from ever lovin’ Adelaide. James, Grant and I met up with them on Saturday night. We started off at FA Coffee for a prolonged dinner (service was a little, let’s say…slow!) then went to the Midnight Shift and then to Palms. Naughty James & I ended up back at the Midnight Shift at 1.30am or some ridiculous time. Then I had to try and get home at taxi changeover time – 3am. Got a bus, walked, went to Hungry Jacks and finally found a cab that was actually ‘going my way’. Lucky, lucky, lucky. It was fab to catch up with P & C again.

Thanks to the waiter for this shot!



  1. Palms is that the same Palms from the early 1980’s?

    • Palms has been around for many years but I am not sure if it goes back to the early 80s
