Busy Weekend

Did you ever have the feeling that you need a break after a busy weekend? I think that my family is having this feeling today. Our weekend was packed with stuff that we didn’t manage to do in the last two weekends. After our long weekend down south and the weekend after being with the flu there was a huge list of things we needed to tackle. Saturday my hubby helped his brother take some huge prints to the gallery in the city,for his expo that will be launched next week. So even though I had a mountain of laundry and loads of spring cleaning to do, I decided to meet hubby in the city for a cup of coffee and some early dinner. I just thought that after being sick and stuck at home it would be nice to take Luke out and about. The poor little fellow was stuck at home watching endless hours of tv, I am not proud of this but I was just to weak to organize activities for him. So off we went to the train station to get in to town. Luke just loves the train ride and I should do this more often with him. I had some iced frappe and Luke had bubblegum ice cream. We saw some street performance while waiting for hubby. Hubby joined us and we passed by Nesspresso store and bought some coffee and 4 new latte cups. After that we went to have some sushi at the sushi train restaurant. Luke loves it, he just loves all the different plates passing by on the stretcher. Then we headed back home. We were all popped by the time we got home, got Luke ready for bed and managed to do two more loads of wash while watching a movie with hubby before going to bed myself. Sunday Luke and I had our hair cut. While I was having my hair cut Grandma and Luke were doing a vintage puzzle. After that we went to the markets to get some fresh veggies for dinner. I was the whole of last week wanting to eat Lebanese food, if you haven’t tried it yet, please do! It’s healthy and wonderfully delicious. We got back and hubby was mowing and de-weeding the our almost dead lawn. By the end of the day we were all so tired and hungry that my Kibe and Tabouli really hit the spot. After this busy weekend Luke and I deserved a treat specially cause Luke had his first night with no nappies!! Hurray for us, we are done with those nappies! So successful weekend = ice cream and cake!!! Still have a mountain of wash and cleaning to do but I think I can deal with it tomorrow!

Afternoon Play

This afternoon I took Luke to petting farm in Landsdale farm school. It was a beautiful afternoon. He really enjoyed seeing all the animals and counting chicken eggs. We had a very nice lunch there too. After that we headed back home and our dear friends came for play date. The weather was so nice that I got the little water table out for the kids to play. They were delighted to play with some water after a long winter. Now we are alone again and watching some tv eating pretzels. I am trying to come up with an easy dinner for tonight. Successful afternoon entertainment for sure!!!

I love Spring!

We had a lovely weekend, the weather was just perfect! Rob and I were cleaning the gutters and eaves through out the week to get them ready to paint. So today we started painting the eaves and downpipes all white, we decided the gutters looked good enough once cleaned up. It’s amazing how some paint can make such a difference, we are not done yet but it is already looking like a different house.
Yesterday Aline came by to visit us, I was very happy to see her and Nina because we haven’t seen each other for over 5 months. It was a nice surprise when she left me a message in facebook saying she was coming to Perth for the long weekend. She spent the afternoon with us, Nina and Luke were all hugs and kisses; very cute! Tania, Glen and the boys came by in the end of the afternoon also for some hot-dogs, it was great to see them because we also needed to catch up. So our Saturday was a day with good friends, simple food and great weather, I couldn’t ask for anything better!
Today while Rob was finishing painting, I took Luke to Lansdale Farm (petting farm) so he could work in peace and Luke could be entertained for a couple of hours. We had some great news also form Kel, she had a beautiful, healthy baby boy, so in the end of the afternoon Luke and I went to visit her in the hospital (which is three blocks away from my house, handy or what?). I got a little teary when I was holding the little bundle of joy, I must admit that I miss the baby phase even with the sleeping deprivation. It was so great to see Kel and Harley so happy with their little angel. Well that’s all the news for now, enjoy all the photos from the farm and Kings Park. Take everyone!
