Saturday: Sunday

I need a few days to recover from the weekend. It was very busy. Lots of socialising with friends and neighbours on Friday night, and then Saturday afternoon into the evening and then again yesterday afternoon. Too many drinks. Children that are overtired. But it was good fun.

And in between? Well the girls jumped. And jumped. And jumped. On the new trampoline that Rob put together on Saturday morning.

Rob sat and pondered, well, most things, from the hammock he finally managed to get put up for summer.

I sat and watched all of them with a coffee in hand recovering from one or another of the hangovers that I seemed to have.

The sun shone, so we ate breakfast outside. Easier to get back to the jumping that way you see…

It finally feels like summer is on it’s way.

I have such a busy week ahead of me. Prepping for the 35 people we have for lunch on Sunday, visitors staying for the weekend, school, birthday parties and all the rest in between. I am actually exhausted just thinking about it all. Oh well, best get on with it with swimming & supermarket shopping this morning.


  1. Lovely photos. Your weekend looks like fun. The girls seem very happy with their new outside toy. We had a lovely weekend visiting family in the upper hunter, and my children love playing with their cousins. We have to drive back to Sydney today.
    By the way I love love love your chunky white watch. Where is it from?
    Have a nice Monday!

  2. And, of course, it’s freezing again today. I have a cardi on. I don’t think I’ve actually had it off yet (except that one day in early October). Weird Spring!! x

  3. ooh the hammock, and Rob with a little beard- looking good!

    xo em

  4. We got the kids one of those coming for Chrissy. Bluey has been asking for a few years and the old place simply didn’t have the space.
    I am so so excited!

    Also I LOVE those plates. Where did you get them if you don’t mind me asking?

  5. Cripes Beth, you sure know how to pack a lot into your weekend! I thoughts ours was tiring enough. And yes, I love those little plates, too! J x

  6. We have a springfree trampoline. We’ve had it for 4 years and I swear hardly a day goes by where the kiddies don’t use it, great investment. Love the hammock too!

  7. We bacame tramp owners this weekend too.
    Bouncing bliss!
    Hope you find some down time somewhere in your crazy week.
    Go lie on that tramp. Alone!

  8. A lovely story….being nearly 80 all those wonderful things we did when young are but fantastic memories so I hope you don’t mind my checking out your blog from time to time sharing in some of your exploits. It helps the return of those memories I am still very lucky to have stored in the old brain box.

  9. That silly goose plate is AWESOME! I say that to my kids all the time. And is there any better summer combo than watermelon and trampolines?
