12 Married years…

Cliff and I celebrated our twelfth wedding anniversary this year.  To mark the occasion we went to see the Parlotones Orchestrated show at Montecasino and oh my word, it was FANTASTIC!


I’ve always loved the Parlotones but Kahn has this amazingly natural energy when performing live and honestly the orchestral element to the show really blew it out of the water.

I had so much fun taking in the incredible lighting (having worked in a theatre in a competing casino highlighted my interest in stuff like set design and how technical lighting is) and singing along to all the tunes that I normally sing in the car whilst stuck in traffic.


I loved how the music director was SO INTO his job for the night and when they did their rendition of “Lisa se Klavier” well I got goosebumps!  We even got to meet Lira after the show when we went for cocktails.  Now she annoys me on The Voice SA but what a sweet woman.


I’ve learned that even after twelve years of marriage I still have the best fun with this man that was chosen for me.  When we get the chance to just be us and let our hair down, he is still the one I wish to laugh, sing and be silly with.

Thank you my love for TWELVE wonderful (and challenging) years.

  1. Firstly, congratulations on your anniversary, I’m not sure I got around to congratulating you. May your blessings continue to follow you!
    Secondly, while I have seen The Parlotones live in concert (at the Dome, which doesn’t compare to the light show you encountered) twice in their early days, I am deeply envious of you hearing Lisa se Klavier live. It is undoubtedly one of my favourites.
    Glad you had fun,

  2. Huge congratulations! You know I think that is what we need – just to be together a bit like those years before the kiddos. Wishing you a wonderful next 12 years

    1. Thanks so much Rina, honestly I think we get so caught up in the hum drum of daily life that we forget who we were before all the mayhem of the kids and life etc. We need to do this kind of stuff more often!
