I’ve been waking up around 5.30am this week and not able to go back to sleep and this was the case today. After letting the dogs out I made a cup of tea, which I enjoyed while watching youtube and reading blogs while waiting for the household to awaken.
Eventually they did surface and Kevin was greeted with hugs from Rosie.
Amy was kind enough to make breakfast for us…
Spaghetti on toast today.
I then did a bit of washing up….
and fed the dogs their breakfast – do you think they’re excited? 🙂
I then made the bed..
found Christy practicing her choir songs…
had my shower and got ready for the day.
Nan & Pop came to get the dogs to take them for a walk. I’m so lucky they are able to do this with my feet causing me such grief.
We had been going to stay home for the day but I really needed to get the girls some Winter shoes so decided to go into Wollongong.
First stop was Gloria Jeans (neither Kevin or Christy had eaten breakfast).
I enjoyed a very yummy HOT chocolate.
Then it was time to shop for shoes.
Both girls ended up with new boots.
They also got some new clothes. Kevin scored some new DVDs and I got an empty wallet! Oh wait, I did visit Darrell Lea to pick up some more of my favourite chocolates :-).
Kevin had heard good things about the new Indian place in the food court so we decided to get lunch there.
But rather than eat in the noisy food court we took it home to eat. It was REALLY yummy.
I then hemmed two new cargo pants I bought for Kevin yesterday.
Just as I was finishing Kay dropped off Emerson to hang out (I don’t think they “play” once they’re in high school). Kay stayed for a drink and a chat. Once she left I got stuck into doing a bit more planning for our trip (just 3 weeks and we’ll be on our way) while Kevin played War of Warcraft.
The girls made some mars bar slice (but burnt the chocolate for the top 🙁 )
The pups hung out with us…
and we enjoyed a cheese and dip platter for afternoon tea.
We had been planning to go out for dinner so had organised for the girls to have dinner at Nan & Pops. But our plans were cancelled so Kevin and I decided to have a spa.
Amy came back from Nan & Pops – Christy is sleeping over. I got the dogs their dinner…
and organised our own dinner. Kevin had leftover Indian and I had leftover mexican .
I then painted my nails…
before settling down with Kevin (and Rosie) to watch The King’s Speech.
Very good movie. I can see why it won so many awards. Then it was time for bed. With all my early mornings I didn’t even end up reading tonight – just went straight to sleep.
