A Wonderful Weekend

Had a lovely weekend. Spent Saturday morning out the pool enjoying the sunshine and cool water, and doing some gardening.


Then in the afternoon Mum & I headed up to Sydney…


to see this….


Cesar Millan (the dog whisperer) was fantastic. The show was funny, moving and educational. We had 3rd row tickets and got to stay behind after the show for a special question and answer time.


Then on Sunday, after doing some paperwork in the morning we headed down to Kiama  to meet one of my online friends, Vanessa of Little Retro House(  they were staying at East Beach – you might remember our stay here). We’ve been trying to meet up for a while now so I’m so pleased we finally managed it. And like always when I meet blogging friends we hit it off straight away. It ALWAYS amazes me there is no awkwardness, just instant real-life friendship.


Her daughter, friend and Christy took off for a swim at the pool (also instant friends) while we chatted and enjoyed some afternoon tea. We then took all the girls (including Amy) down to the beach for a swim. Though it was overcast it was still very warm.


While we were sitting here  a Southery came through and it instantly turned cold. I think it dropped around 10deg. Just crazy.


When we could see the big grey clouds moving in we headed back to their van…


and tried to stay dry.


We really enjoyed our visit and it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Of course, it’s essential to have ice-cream if you drive through Kiama. Mad, I tell you, as it was rather cold.


Christy didn’t end up eating her’s as it was “too cold”. What, ice cream is cold? Who knew?


Me, being the sane one, opted for a nice hot tea :-).


We then headed home and since Kevin wasn’t keen on going out again to the basketball, I took Christy with me.


We had a nice time, though the Hawks lost (due mainly to bad sportsmanship by the other team).


It was a certainly a very enjoyable weekend. Hope you all had a good one.

    Oh Libby, you told the Sunday afternoon catch up story so much better than me. LOL I shouldn’t have blogged when I was so tired. Glad you enjoyed your time with us. It was good fun wasn’t it?
