Yesterday I visited Melbourne’s Ice Bar. For those of you that are not familiar with the Ice bar, let me elaborate. The ice bar is a bar like no other where the temperatures are a freezing 8 degrees below zero. Where everything is made entirely of ice. The seats, the tables, the ice sculptures, the entertaining ice hockey table, even the glasses where the cocktails are served are made of ice.
In order to be able to stand to be inside the ice bar you need to be rugged up in these super warm water proof ponchos, wearing ski gloves and ugg boots.
It was a really fun night, like no other. We had dinner in the quaint little Inuet restaurant next door which was just as lovely, lots of different flavours, nice ambience, and finished off the night at the Lindt chocolate shop sipping on mocha and eating yummy macaroons.
Almost makes you wish the weekend didn’t have to end, doesn’t it?
74 Sleeps till Christmas
Today Melbourne put on its most glorious weather yet, it was a stunning 29 degrees!! My children took advantage of the warm weather and hit mum and dad’s pool, braving the cold water they had fun swimming and splashing around.
But it would not be Melbourne if the weather stayed like this, so as you rightly guessed tomorrow it is going to be a chilly 15 degrees, wet, windy, nothing like today at all!!
Feels strange that we are so close to the end of another year. The race to wrap things up at work and at school has begun, everything seems to be about the end of the year and all the events leading up to it. With only 74 sleeps till Christmas I can’t help feeling a little bit of panic knowing that there is still so much to do.
Smile it’s Friday
I love Fridays!!! No matter how many times I say it, it just won’t be enough. Fridays mean casual dress and lots of fun at work. Fridays mean takeaway food or going out for dinner. Catching up with friends and family. Fridays are homework free. There is wine on Friday nights and sometimes like tonight there is a romantic chick flick on. Friday brings with it the promise of a much coveted sleep In. What’s not to like? If I had things my way everyday would be Friday.
Another week over
It’s funny how quickly times flies when you are having fun, and how it just seems to drag during the week when it’s all work and school.
Well our mini family holiday is over which means it’s back to work for me tomorrow, and even though I am one of those people that actually enjoy their job, I can’t say I’m really looking all that forward to going back.
It has been so lovely not having to worry about waking up early, or cooking or cleaning, the last 6 days have really just been about having fun, relaxing and soaking up the sun.
Alas though all good things must come to an end, and today in preparation of the week ahead I spent the majority of my day catching up on the laundry. Thankfully the weather here in Melbourne has been warm and windy, perfect washing weather. I’m relaxing now with a pre dinner drink, taking a moment to go over all that I have to do this coming week.
Fortunately it’s still school holidays and lucky for me, my husband has the week off, so hopefully he will be able to entertain the kids while I am at work.
What is even better still, is that dinner has been taken care of tonight. We had the family over yesterday for a BBQ while we watched the Grand Final Aussie Rules footy game so leftovers it is tonight. Hope everyone in the blogosphere had a wonderful weekend.
There is a distinct buzz of excitement in the air today, and that is because work is finished and school is over for another term, so that can only mean one thing, holidays!!! Yay
This time we are not wasting another opportunity, we are off on an adventure, a road trip to Bateman’s Bay in NSW!! Ten hours in the car with three children is not everyone’s cup of tea I know, and if I am to be totally honest I can’t say it is what I am most looking forward to. I am looking forward to having fun, exploring, relaxing, soaking up the sun. One glorious week of not having to cook or clean or do the laundry, sounds like bliss doesn’t it?
Because as my sister will often tell me I am a sharer I will be sure to post lots of photos and updates. There is still the weekend to get through though, lots of packing and preparing. Even Dexter is going on a holiday he is going to spend the week at my mums where he will be pampered and made such a fuss of that I fear he may not want to come home. Have a safe weekend everyone. 😊😊😊😊
So much to be thankful for
Today I am thankful for many things. I am happy that I have my beautiful
little car back and it looks better than ever, in fact it looks brand new again. (Unfortunately this shiny clean look won’t last long knowing my kids, but for today I am happy to have it back).
I am thankful that it is Friday which means the working week is over and it’s time to enjoy quality time with family and friends.
I’m thankful that the freak hail and storms seem to be behind us and the sunshine is back for the weekend.
I guess the only thing I am not thankful for is Telstra – our telephone and internet provider. We have been without a phone line and most importantly without internet access since Monday and it really is driving us a little batty, the kids are fighting more because they are bored and my iphone has already used over half it’s allocated monthly usage something that never ever happens.
Still I’m thankful that I have my iphone so I can still read all the blogs I enjoy so much.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Today I spent the day with two of my most favourite people in this whole wide world my mummy and my big sister. We hit the shops for some retail therapy. It’s what I call girl bonding at its best.
I couldn’t think of a nicer way to spend a quiet Sunday, the last day of what has felt like a very long winter. Tomorrow Spring, my most favourite season will be here, bringing with it l hope, lots of sunshine, beautiful flowers, fun and happiness.
I hope that everyone in the blogosphere has had a lovely weekend.
