Are you up packing lunches and getting ready to send your kids back to school? Back to the grindstone. How have you been? My boys head back to school today after a fun weekend with friends.
Mr & Mrs Savvy B and Co popped over for the night on Saturday. I was so excited, haven’t seen them for a month and I was having withdrawals. It was a very easygoing night…. a campfire, a cheese platter, some marinated prawns and some wine. There really is nothing better than sitting around a fire with friends. I would do it every night if I could.
We waved them off Sunday morning. It was then time for DD and I to whip around and make up some more beds…. Housekeeping… as we had more visitors arriving. This time is was Grandpa Chardy (Mr Chardy’s Dad) and 4 others. Mr Chardy’s cousin, second cousins and Captain Greg…. they all flew up from Victoria and are here for a few days. It is so great to see them all and we haven’t seen Grandpa Chardy since January 2014, so really great to see him. They travelled in style…..
So last night DD and I trotted out dinner for 18. I had already thawed some mince out and Mrs Savvy B suggested giant meat pies. So I had my first crack at making a meat pie – 4 of them actually and they went down a treat with some mashed potato, peas and gravy.
The cold weather has finally arrived up this way and I am sitting here in my winter pi’s with the Air Con on heat. I hope you are all staying warm!
How was your weekend?
Are you freezing? Is it snowing in your part?
