oh what a weekend

Friday had 'baby free day' which neded up involving work, haircut, shopping, nieceminding, cooking dinner and swapping one niece for the other

Saturday, went for walk with Isobel (the elder niece) to the shops. It takes a lot longe with a two-year old in tow. She then got picked up and we went for the drive to Aveline's memorial. It was lovely and sad and happy and everything rolled into one. Dragged home screamingly overtired baby, had nap in the car, went to bbq, drank some lovely 'dusty' wine, fell asleep.

Sunday, shopped, had JD's lovely friend deliver her bbq and outdoor furniture and then had bbq (using the wood burning one, not the nice shiny oh so much easier to use, gas one) for dr nik's 29th birthday. Got rained out at one point but the lads manfully held an umbrella over the cooking meat while we all madly bought everything inside. We didn't go hungry and fun was still had.
I even made a birthday cake type object.

Okay, it's really 3 stroopwafles, 2 candles and some cake writing gel, but close enough.

Since it's now all of Wednesday and I'm only just getting around to posting this, I'll tell you about the rest of the week to be.

Tonight the lovely husband is whisking me off to Manly for fish and chips on the beach, tomorrow I go to work in the morning and then have an afternoon of freedom, freedom I tells ya!! (the beloved grandmama & grandpapa are looking after the wee one.)
Friday, cook nachos and then go see Violent Femmes, Saturday go to Shoalhaven with lovely friends, Sunday come home, Monday go to work etc....
