at my house....

We had a great weekend, went to a great party (thanks Nikki!) on Saturday night ( child free) and ate, drank and made merry!!!!( plenty of bad disco dancing and what I like to call"social singing"!!) Woke up Sunday morning, after a VERY windy, rainy night to find this tree has been uprooted from our nature strip and fallen through the fence. Made a bit of a hole in the fence , but luckily didn't take out the power or phone lines.

We went down to Geelong to see Gary's dad for fathers day, so I managed to get a heap of crocheting done in the car and while we were chatting after lunch. Jack showed us some great home movies of when the boys were babies and toddlers, I had forgotten how cute they were!
Andre thought my hair looked like a boys (it was very short, and I have to agree, not very attractive!) and thought I should travel back in time and change it! If only it was that easy!!

This week looks pretty standard - lots of busy kids activites, ortho appointments, sport, work and other stuff. We have a bye in tennis tonight so I've invited mum and dad for dinner, I am roasting a shoulder of pork that I got from Fernleigh Farm a while ago. They grow and sell rare breed free range pork, so I'll be interested to see if it tastes different to conventional pork.

One special thing this week - Friday night I'm off to the city to see one of my fav bands, Powderfinger, on their goodbye tour (boo hoo!) I Can't Wait!!!! Great live music and a night out, it doesn't get much better than that!
Have a great week!


  1. I had a night out child free last week as well. They are nice once in a while that's for sure! What a surprise to see such a huge tree over the fence - bet the boys loved that drama! Hope you enjoy powderfinger.
