Not quite as impressive as Conversations with Richard Fidler but lets chat shall we?! Are you all chanting in your head “Thank god it’s Friday, Friday, Fridaaaaaaay”? Which reminds me I really do need to get my Chardy into the fridge. How can someone by the name of Miss Chardy be always running out of either the stuff entirely or just cold Chardonnay? I really need to get my act together. But it is indeed Friday and I will be having a Chardy or 3 tonight. How about you? Do you do Friday night drinks at a nice bar in the City? Or perhaps share a drink with your neighbour? Me, well I just sit on the lounge and drink alone…. ha ha ha ha. Kidding (kind of). When I lived in Sydney and worked in the City the law firm I worked for used to provide drinks for us on a Friday evening, then we would often hit the town, of course I was 21 back then, not 37 with 3 kids living in Bum Truck Nowhere. ha ha ha. If anyone would like a Japanese Slipper for Friday Night Drinks, or FND as I prefer to call it, then here is the recipe my friends…
The weather is FINALLY cooling down up here. I love this weather, not too cold and not too hot. It also means I can start going for my morning walk outside instead of on the treadmill. Mr Chardy has graded the walking track back in for us, so we are all set. It has been so lovely too. Cruising around the track, listening to my podcasts enjoying the peace and quiet. I even had to put a jumper on the past couple of mornings. Yay!
The boys are growing by the minute. Tom will be as tall as me soon and Harry is even growing and starting to eat a bit more (a tiny bit more). Clancy just won’t stop. I took his cowboy boots to the last campdraft and then tried to get his foot into them with no luck, he had grown out of them without me realising. The trouble was I didn’t have another pair there for him. And lord knows I have boots in every single size – hand me downs from the other boys. Anyway, I pulled them out of the cupboard yesterday and he was wrapped to the back teeth to be able to finally fit into these suckers….
It was so lovely reading all of your comments over on the Miss Chardy Facebook page about where you are all from. Wow, I was blown away by the response to that little question. It is so wonderful to know where you all live and I was so thrilled to hear from all of those readers who don’t live in Australia, I didn’t realise there were so many of you. There were people from Taiwan, Germany, Moscow, Texas, Oklahoma, Zambia, Toronto, New Zealand, Manilla, The UK, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, The Netherlands and Qatar!!! Not to mention all of my fabulous Aussie readers from every State and Territory in Australia, all over the place I tell you, country towns, Cities, farms, stations, near & far. It was so great to hear from you all. Didn’t see anyone from my home town – Mudgee. Do we have any Mudgee readers out there? Anyway, thanks for letting me know where you are all from.
We have another lovely quiet weekend at home. It will be the last one for a while which I am a little bit happy about because I am starting to go a bit nutty… need to see some people from the outside world.
What are your plans for the weekend?
Are you going to whip up a Slipper?
Crack open some wine?
Catch up with friends?
