The Week that was

NOTE : Sorry this is a day late. We had to go up to Sydney yesterday and then I couldn’t load up the photos :-(.

It’s been another funny week. It was the second week of school holidays with more cold, wet weather. It was lovely having the girls at home and we managed to spring clean both their rooms.

Rain, rain, go away

It was also the week we got our Hawks season tickets and this year we got free t-shirts. Mine’s a bit on the big side so I’m not sure how much I’ll wear it….


It was the week we met Russ….

  1. what a wonderful week indeed! ps – when I saw that you got Hawks membership – I assumed you mean the AFL team! So I was a bit confused for a while there when I saw the red tshirts lol

  2. Wow, I never knew your name was Elisabeth. I love that name. You should definitely use it. At least with the bad weather you got to do some inside jobs. Glad you survived the holidays.

  3. Great seats Libby!!! Those brownies look amazing!!! Hey the UCLA team is going back to Australia next year!! I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can go again!!
