Weekend Review

We've just returned home from a very special, albeit 'quick' trip away to visit with Matthew's Mum and Dad.

There was quite a bit of football played, due to coaxing by this footy-mad goon,

some heckling,

a whole lot of eating, which seems to go hand in hand with any family gathering,

and even an early birthday celebration for a young girl who turns six later this week.

These candles sure do take some blowing out...

still blowing...

Amidst the flurry of electioneering, we managed to enjoy a special birthday tea, enjoy the odd beverage and add much to the ensuing election coverage!

And after what was a six and a half hour drive home, amidst a convoy of demountable housing, children slept, ate and teased each other (just a little) right to the front gate. Dogs, pigs, bulls and weaners all pleased to see us home.

  1. Hello, it's good to be home again; it all feels like a bit of a dream now.

    It's a tough gig when your kids leave home - and for boarding school parents it happens so much sooner, but I guess you guys don't have a choice hey? I remember the emotion of Meg leaving for Uni, thinking well at least I didn't have to go through that again for five years - and now it's here!

    Time just rolls on though, each day and week slipping by so quickly. Before I know it I'll be heading a post with "That's it, it's Done" and lamenting the passage of time.

    There will be positives all 'round though, I just need to remind myself of them - and Drew is very excited and that's infectious. It heralds a new time in all our lives but, as a mother - well, you know what I'm on about!
