weekend love

:: still admiring my new glassware {if you're following me on instagram you will know what I mean}
:: drawing, always drawing, anywhere, anytime
:: birthday cake preparations for hubby
:: late night, last minute sewing
:: happy birthday dad!
:: three year old birthday party with the best mushroom cake I have ever seen!
:: meeting Mr Austin (receiver of the late night, last minute sewing)
:: reuniting with a very grown up Miss Grace {who was just a bub last time we saw her}
:: having such a lovely time reuniting with old friends that we arrived at the party at 11am and left at 5.30pm.. many a laugh, cuppa and beer later.. welcome home dear friends!
:: straight out to birthday dinner, dad's choice, made even better by the best behaved children high on sugar and cake and adrenalin at so many wonderful things in one day
:: bubbles and bike riding
:: washing up
:: playing fairies
:: late lunches
:: happy playing
:: vegemite toast birthday cake for dad {the following day as we were all caked out after eating it all day at Grace's party}, all credit to Ruby, this was her idea 'because dad loves vegemite toast!'
:: hip hip hooray!

I am so relieved we are heading into the last week of term. We all need a break. The only commitment that will continue through the holidays will be swimming, which is okay with me. I am editing shoot photos like a crazy woman, trying to get them out and into some eagerly waiting hands, and then need to turn my sights to Easter prep. My parents will be here with us on Easter Sunday and Monday as they come back from South Australia for a wedding. Hip hip hooray again!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend too x
