Jason gets the rough end of the pineapple in this blog. He slaves away at the Sow's Ear at all hours of the day and night and then I make fun of him. It's a hard life.

With that said, the Brisbane Times reckon he's sexy while shirtless, so it can't be all bad. And he has the blog to thank for such belated recognition.

Well, tomorrow it's his birthday. His 40th.

Toddler Jason at kindy - a style leader in checks and plaid.

He is taking the day off work on his birthday, so we can have lunch together and then test drive this baby.

Peugeot RCZ

He passionately described the Peugeot RCZ, as and I quote verbatim:

"When I first saw this car I said, 'Haahh!'. It took my breath away.

"It's like when you catch a glimpse of a beautiful curvaceous woman from a distance and you gasp, 'Haahh!'. It's just beautiful. Beautiful looking. And it's also French."

He assured me that he was completely serious, when I asked him if we were still talking about a car and not the young receptionist at work. Hmmm...I can feel a mid-life crisis coming on, particularly as Jason is not a "car person".

Anyway, think of us as we hoon around Brisbane tomorrow on the test drive (tyre kicking exercise rather than actually purchasing, unless we catch a bout of affluenza).

Oh and Happy Birthday dear Jason! xxooxx


  1. Happy Birthday Jason!Wow're really old...ha ha. I know you will have a super fun day... but importantly does the sexy car have a tow bar for lugging around large supports for sow's ear or for those trips to the dump, and does it self clean all the juice and biscuit crumbs off the seats left from Son no 3 ? Hey Anita it's a pity your Mum's fab dresses are so bloody tiny, I could imagine you in one of them in this car...perhaps with some nice sunglasses and head scarf. cheers Katherine xx

  2. Katherine, it's part of Jason's cunning plan to buy a vehicle which is so impractical for our family circumstances. And don't worry about the dresses - I've a nice retro (ie flammable) frock which will do the trick!xx

  3. Happy Birthday to Jason. He will have to wear a top in that car. What a nice way to spend a birthday. xo

  4. Jane, I'll remind him to keep his shirt on. x

  5. Happy Birthday to young Jason. I say enjoy the mid life crisis, especially if you have test drives in luxury cars every weekend....

    ...test drive, yeah right!! :)

  6. Happy Birthday Jason! I hope you have a wonderful day.

  7. Joyeux anniversaire to Jason.
    OK - I'm not really French. Just by naturalisation. And I will leave the fun test driving of a Peugeot. to you two larrikins as I tow my Renault Espace to the garage today, swearing never to buy another French car again.

    Have a great time both of you!

  8. Happy birthday to your hardworking man!! Have fun!!

  9. How is your French accent, because I'm sure in every other way he is talking about you!
    Happy Birthday Jason!

  14. Happy 40th to shirtless Jason from your international fans! And merry Peugeoting round the bends and down the straights. Window and foot down, music loud and pineapple cocktails home waiting on ice. What a day! What a DIYer!

  15. Happy 40th to Jason! I'm not normally into cars but that car looks pretty hot. Have fun!
