Barefoot bowls 

We didn’t think we would be trying lawn bowls for quite a few years yet but on Friday night we decided to give it a go, callit a practice run for our golden years if you like.

It was soooo much fun!! I would love to be able to say that we were awesome at it but of course we weren’t. There were some moments of brilliance, and for the briefest of moments we had the opposition worried. But honestly it was such a good night and surprisingly an inexpensive night too.

I would definitely do barefoot bowls again, hopefully with the same group of amazing girls, maybe next time with my family too, now that would be fun.

Why wait for the golden years I say!! 

Australia Day celebrations

Today was a lovely day with family celebrating Australia Day!!

The sun was shining and my sister prepared some traditional Aussie treats.

The champagne was flowing and we had a wonderful time as we always do when we are together.

Guess the only not so good thing is that it’s back to work tomorrow.






School holidays- what happened to having fun??

I have taken a week off work to hang out with my kids over the school holidays and have some fun, but it seems that technology has captured my children and is holding them hostage, because aside from skyping with their friends and playing games on line they do not want to really do anything!!

We have arranged for some of their friends to come over for a sleepover Monday night and to spend the day with us on Tuesday, and we are catching up with some family friends on Friday but aside from that they really don’t want to do anything else.

I should be happy I guess that they enjoy being home but I can’t help feeling like they are missing out by locking themselves away like this. In a few weeks time school will resume again and the carefree days of the summer holidays will be but a distant memory, surely they must want to do more than this?

So tomorrow I have planned a fun filled day for us, and despite the looks of horror I received and the blatant lack of enthusiasm I am determined that we will have fun!!
