- I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

V Dear Rocky - Viva Las Vegas
I know my recent reviews have steered more away from the relationships within the movie and more towards the impact it has had on my life and my relationships.
Viva Las Vegas is no different.
On Saturday afternoons, we would sit in the lounge-room with our mum and watch Elvis Presley films. My mum had the biggest crush on Elvis and would dance and sing to his records. One of them came with a poster of the King neatly folded inside. We were never allowed to touch it!
Viva Las Vegas was one of many Elvis films we watched with her. I think I had my own crush on the young Elvis, even as a little girl. He was captivating and was always chased by the beautiful girls even though he was often the bad boy. Hmmmm, maybe that explains a few things about some of the choices I've made in my life!
You know, I don't think I've ever seen my Mum so happy or as relaxed as when she was dancing around our living room to Elvis.
I can't help but wonder if I'm named after one of Elvis' characters in Kissing Cousins....
Another example of how movies have connected me to the important people in my life. This time my Mum!
