Back with the Family

Friday 8 May at the Farm

On Friday morning we had breakfast with the Macs and little Katelyn and James came to visit Granny and Grandpa. They are adorable.  Earl took photographs of them in the garden with the ancient pony, Fatso that our kids used to ride!

I went to Barbara’s hairdresser, Mario, at 11:30 and she gave me an old-fashioned razor cut!  I am very pleased with the results.  My hair is short and easy to manage.

We then met up with Nicoline and made plans for our departure to her brother’s game farm near Queenstown.  We then returned to the farm and chilled for the rest of the day.

In the evening we went to Heather’s for dinner – Wow – what a spread – roast lamb and all the trimmings followed by cheesecake for dessert.   My only cheat from Banting for ages but I fooled myself that cheese was banting so it was okay!  Loads of sugar but so what!

Saturday 9 May 2015

On Saturday we went to Wacky Winter Weekend at St Patrick’s College.  It was lovely.  Shannon had a few games of hockey to play and Simon had rugby.  We were very proud when he scored a goal.  It was a very hot day and we left at about 12ish to go shopping for our next trip.   In the afternoon we relaxed at home.

The kids were tired but happy after a successful morning of sport.  We went back to the farm and in the evening Earl did seared tuna for dinner.
