Weekend wrap

Well, it's Monday morning yet again. Another weekend down.

We're supposed to be on the Gold Coast this week, having a bit of a family break at Seaworld while Skip did some work. Unfortunately, plans changed and Skip will just do a fly-through trip, quick presentation and then home, while I do some more single-parenting. Sigh. At least the sun is out today.

Our weekend was good though. A perfect mix of fun time, alone time and family time. Friday night I roasted a chicken, the first time since the Canadian burnt chook fiasco of 1996. I didn't burn it this time, thank goodness. Saturday we braved the rain to breakfast with friends and later in the day baked banana bread.  That night Skip and I went to a party, a house party, no less! I can't remember the last time I went to a house party sans kids. It was to farewell some friends who are moving overseas for a couple of years (lucky buggers). It was terrific fun to catch up with old friends and pretend to be young and carefree.

Father's Day we treated Skip to Bircher museli, banana bread and coffee before heading off to the Campbelltown Show. Skip loves to take a Sunday drive and this way we had a destination that the kids loved. Dodgy merry-go-rounds and dodgem cars, cow milking, acrobats and strange carny folk with missing teeth. The show had it all. Lunch at Maccas topped off a grand day, before we drove home.

How was your weekend?


  1. You deserve a medal for all the solo parenting that you do. Honestly. I don't know how you do it. Sounds like a good weekend though...hope the week flies by!

  2. House parties are awesome and probably the only place I'll go to a party now, I'm such a nanna.

    Your weekend sounds lovely.

    The show yesterday sounds awesome. Nothing like seeing some carneys with missing teeth!!


  3. Bugger about the solo-parenting and lack of gold coast holidaying - but your weekend does sound rather lovely - hold on to those memories xx

  4. Sounds like a great weekend. Cherish those.

  5. oh what a bugger you don't get to go away... still sounds like a lovely weekend

  6. Sounds like a great weekend topped off with a lovely Fathers Day. Hope you get to enjoy that Gold Coast escape at some stage.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
