Hope you have a truly fantastic day! I will chat to you all soon
Coop and rocks and our storms Grant managed to catch the heaviest fish - an 8kg Carp on 4kg Line, and it wasn't until that night we realised that he had a world record and we didn't save it. Bugger it, Grant was truly devastated! Looks like we will be chasing world records next year! LOL!
Other than the fishing, and the relaxing, kicking back, I read some of my book - Paulina Simons new book. The second day we moved camp, due to the wind and found a more sheltered spot which was much more secure. I think come the new year it will be time to look for a camping trailer, that you just pull out and away you go. None of this setting up tents, trying to hold them up in huge winds! Actually looking forward to the next trip! Though in saying that, I think March would be good. Not too hot!
Relaxing and Kicking Back
Can't wait for next years, was talking to Jo who was the mastermind behind the whole concert, and a bloody great job she did too, and next year they are going to add fireworks at the end of the night! WOW! This kids will go crazy!
Just love this time of year!
Well tea is done and dusted, think I might settled back with a few Christmas recipe books and find some nice recipes for Christmas lunch. Going to have Christmas lunch with my parents and Aunty at my place this year instead of going to theirs. Give mum a break this year. Then go to Grants family for dinner! Though in saying that, haven't heard of their plans yet! Busy Busy!
Then our traditional BBQ on Boxing day for Coops Birthday! The big 4!!!
Have a nice night, I am going to enjoy the break, kick back, relax and go through some recipes. Glad I had dinner first. LOL!

All I want for Christmas
This week has been so busy! We have finished on side of the fence with one side to go, we have had a new air con go in just in time for summer as our last one died at the end of summer last year.. Lucky for us we didn't need it during the year as we have the fire... This weekend we will be fencing again all weekend to do our other fence, though I have to say, the cream colourbond with the black trim looks awesome... Makes our yard look even bigger than it already is.. we have a 1300 m2 block, which is practically all backyard. 55metres is just one of the side fences! Yes pretty big for a suburban block, and we back onto 100's and 100's of acres, so no back neighbours, just the two side ones. We are going to leave the back fence open with a wooden post and rail fence (something like horse studs have), so it doesn't block out our beautiful view.
On that note I am also back to working at the salon in the morning, looking so forward to getting back there, missing the girls terribly. Lucky for me I did go in yesterday and had some maintenance done before starting again, so got a little fix from seeing the girls...
I hope you all have a brilliant weekend, for me it will be more fencing!!!
Take care, chat soon Lisxx
We had such a lovely day! Took nearly two hours to walk around the whole gardens. The boys absolutely loved the Storybook Garden! It had statues all through the gardens of characters out of old storybooks, like Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Pussy in the Well, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Little Bo Peep, Alice in Wonderland, etc... Fantastic!!!

Recovery is going a little better in my second week. I have progressed to being able to go out in the car and things are improving. My cut in my belly button is still quite sore as is my bladder. Wierd!! I have watched so many movies I couldn't even name them all but here are a few I can remember off the top of my head. Gforce, Aliens in the Attic, Ice Age 3, Transformers 2, Ghosts from Girlfriends Past, Confessions of a Shopaholic, the first season of True Blood, The last house on the left, 17 Again, Renee Zellwegers new one (can't remember the name), Bring it On (the latest one), Fired Up, OMG I am all movied out. Grant even took the boys to see Up at the movies. I stayed home! Have been doing a little scrapping, but only manage about 10-15 minutes at a time before my stomach starts to ache! Bring on Week 3!
Hope you are all enjoying the school holidays! Its so nice to have all three of my boys home (thats hubby included)!
Take care, Chat soon
As for my recovery, it is coming along slow. I still have not progressed into Jeans yet, only Pj's and trackies. Lucky for me I am still housebound, doing a lot of resting, watching movies, reading, etc. Hubby is home looking after me, wrangling the kids, doing his best at the housework and doing the dinner duties. Bliss really! Now just to get rid of this pain and I would say I was in heaven! I am sure a few more weeks and I will be doing heel clicks in the air again! LOL!
Chat soon, take care
What creativity do you create this weekend??
See you all at Medowie tonight!!
Cooper not very impressed at getting hit! LOL
Travis being hit!!!
I even got a reprieve from cooking tonight. Grant decided that he was going to try out the new BBQ and cook a roast in it! Well, I have to say that is the last time I cook a roast, Grant now has the job! What a top job he did too! And no mess on the BBQ! Even better! Thanks Granto!
Well thats the end of my weekend! Great fantastic family weekend with perfect beautiful weather... Bring on next week!!!
What did you get up to over the weekend???
