Time has slipped away before my very eyes this week. I feel like I have been chasing my tail the whole time. I’m pretty sure I am not alone, things just get so busy around this time of the year don’t they!!!
So what have we been up to? Well on Tuesday we farewelled Lin & Mick. We managed to get them to stay an extra night in the end so we could give them a Japanese Slipper. Of course they weren’t disappointed and are now quit partial to the Slipper. It has been a while since we trotted one out and I quite enjoyed it too. Before they headed off we took smoko out to the crew who were walking cattle away.
Of course there were tears yet again when we waved Lin and Mick off. It was so wonderful to have them and they were such a huge help. The boys sure did enjoy all of the desserts Linny made not to mention her tasty meatballs. We had so much fun with them. Please come back soon!
The next day was Clancy’s 4th Birthday. Now you know all of those over achieving Mum’s who throw fancy parties for their tiny tots… you know the ones… where the parties look like they are straight from Pinterest…. here is an example…
Well lets just say I am probably the complete opposite when it comes to kids parties (adult parties are a whole other ball game). A total underachiever in the kids Birthday Party stakes. Thankfully Clancy doesn’t know what a fancy party looks like so he had a really fun day. He helped make the cake and also decorated it himself… who needs the Women’s Weekly Cookbook when you can get your 4 year old to do it?? Here is the masterpiece along with good old family shots, not a professional photo in sight, I had to intercept Mr Chardy before he headed off for the afternoon, and just as he has smothered his face in sunscreen, perfect!!! So here is what a “real” birthday looks like… it doesn’t involve perfectly lined up milk bottles and lolly jars….
That night was State of Origin so we had hot dogs at the rec club. Perfect. Miss Gabby is a total over achiever when it comes to decorating and never fails to impress with her Origin night set up. She goes above and beyond, this girl is so generous, check out the effort that she went to…
The rest of my time has been spent in the kitchen, non stop cooking and cleaning. It just never ends. Thankfully I have DD & Rexy here who have been entertaining the children and Mum has been helping out in the kitchen. The crew have headed out all day today, I am that excited it isn’t funny because it means I don’t have to do smoko or lunch – I actually have time to breath.
How has your week been? Busy?
Any plans for the weekend?
I hope you have a fabulous weekend, whatever it is you may be doing.
