Bonjour!

 

I have some exciting news to share with you all… of course I have already shared it with my Muriel’s and now I want to share it with you! πŸ™‚

Don’t get me wrong, my readers are very important to me but sometimes my Muriel’s get first preference especially on this type of news… hmmm… had best stop trying to justify myself as the risk of losing you all could be great I know!! πŸ™‚

Market day!

So this morning I headed off to my little local flea market at Rozelle where I love to go on a Sunday morning and potter around looking for things I don’t really need but just somehow miraculously want! Β Like a pair of Italian shoes (ok, ok, I came away with two pairs!) that the woman insisted I take for .50c even though they had a $5 price tag! LOL… turns out the heel was a bit wobbly when I inspected them at home so I may have tossed those in the bin.. tom pee right… my other pair was fabulous and Italian and I love them!! πŸ™‚

As I was pottering around I overhead a conversation between one of the stallholders and a customer and the woman was saying that the woman at the next stall was the actress Gabby Millgate from the film “Muriel’s Wedding”.

I was beside myself with joy as most of you know I have set up a page on FB titled “The Muriel’s Club” which is now quite a prestigious club and holds international status with Muriel’s hailing from : Australia, New Zealand, France, Israel, Denmark, Ireland, USA, UK… to name a few! Our numbers are continuing to grow and at the moment we haveΒ 86 members and all are very proud to carry the title of Muriel! πŸ™‚

Meeting Muriel’s Sister!

Now some of you may know that I’m not backwards in coming forwards… πŸ™‚ and as I wanted to make Gabby’s acquaintance I politely interrupted the conversation she was having with the stallholder and introduced myself by saying I had set up a Muriel’s Club in her honour on FB and how delighted I was to meet her! She was so gracious and so friendly and we chatted for a short time and she even offered to take a photo and a video of us together so I could post on my FB page for my Muriel’s which she straight away emailed to me using her phone! How nice is that!!

Here is the short video she made with me : Β IMG_0364-1

When I got back home I googled her (as you do Muriel, as you do!) and I found out that she is now a comedy/writer performer and does a great impersonation of our Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

Here is a link to her fabulous work…Β Gabby Millgate.

Gabby played Muriel’s sister in the film Muriel’s Wedding and she is famous for her line in the movie “you’re terrible Muriel”!

Ahhh it’s the little things that keep this Muriel happy….made my day really!!

 

a Bientot!

 

Je embrasse vous tous!

Murielle!
