I went out on the weekend. Yep, sure did – hit the town on Friday night. It was huge. Par-TAY with a capital P. Ok, I may be exaggerating ever so slightly but that will happen when you haven’t left the station for 2 months, won’t it?! I really can’t believe it has been over 2 months since I have been ANYWHERE… oh that is a lie, I have been up to the airstrip – Chardy International – a few times, and to the dump a whole bunch of times but that is about it. I am not even going batty (contrary to popular belief). I am only still sane because we had visitors over Christmas, it felt like a break and was so great to have them all here. We haven’t even been on holidays. Usually by now I would be going nuts.
Anyway, on Friday Georgie invited us girls down to her house for a few cheeky drinks… I jumped at the invitation and swiftly told Mr Chardy I was “going out” and that he was on babysitting duty. I showered, gave myself a blow-dry and even popped a bit of make up on. Gee it felt good. The children were very confused… “Mummy what are you doing? Where are you going”
I hot footed it over to the
restaurant kitchen for dinner and ordered a gin lime and soda from the bar soda stream. Then it was off to the knight club. I had to laugh… Rach, Bobbie and I all perched up in the resort buggy, off for a night on the town. We busted out the blender and had a few Japanese Slippers – it felt like the right thing to do.
Yesterday was Valentines Day and also happens to be our Anniversary… 12 years! Yep, I know – how cheesy – getting married on Valentines Day. But we did. That day 12 years ago, down in Mudgee, was the hottest day we have ever experienced and I am sure all of our guests would agree. Middle of a heat wave – 12 hottest days on record. Our wedding day was 43 degrees, which let me tell you is quite uncomfortable in an un-airconditioned church wearing a full wedding gown/hoop petticoat ensemble! Oh my… the sweat was really something else. Not to mention the 3 piece suits the boys were wearing. Seriously, we had to come back to the NT for some cooler weather, it was ridiculous. Anyway, we had a totally romantic anniversary – Mr Chardy fixed a few broken pipes, I slothed on the lounge and binge watched Hart of Dixie for a few hours, cleaned the house and topped it all off with a swim and BBQ. I know – you must be so jealous right about now, sorry!
So all in all it was a lovely relaxing weekend. We really need to make the most of them because they are few and far between during the busy season.
Now if you don’t mind I have some serious mowing to attend to once I get my boys off to school. I did some mowing on Saturday and it was reassuring to know that there is no such thing as too much pink when doing the lawn. And since Tom stole my slip on work shoes I have been forced to wear his boots – which are even a bit to big and he is only 11. Yes I am really scraping the bottom of the barrel here to share photos with you, ha ha ha.
Have a great day my friends.
