Had such a good but extremely busy weekend. Saturday I got to visit the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show at the beautiful Carlton gardens and Exhibition building. As always it was a spectacular display of flowers and plants, sculptures and garden ornaments. There were the breathtaking gardens and anything you could think of for the avid gardener and those like us just wanting a nice day out.
Sunday was another wonderful day at the soccer. We went to see Melbourne Victory take on the Newcastle Jetts. Perfect weather, lovely venue and a good show by both teams saw the game end in a draw.
OMG every mother knows that feeling of dread when you realise you have forgotten something very important for your child!!It is a feeling like no other. A sick clenching of the stomach and a feeling of overwhelming nausea.
This weekend my son was supposed to go over to one of his friends place so that they – 5 boys in total, could work on their science project. This was a long weekend and it was chocker block full with stuff on, and yep you guessed it we forgot!! My son just noticed an email from his friend asking where he was, that’s 5 minutes before his bedtime and a day late.
I offered to email the teacher and explain what had happened but he doesn’t want me to do that, he is going to wait till he gets to school tomorrow to face the music. Because thats just the sort of kid that he is. I’m guessing he is not going to be popular and that just breaks my heart.
He is a worrier, he stresses and this is just going to add more worry and more stress.
This is one of those times when you wish you could somehow go back in time and change things, but you can’t.
On Monday he received a birthday card in the post from the Victorian Electoral Commission, along with his electoral forms to fill out and return so that he is ready to cast his vote next year.
We celebrated the milestone of 17 with a family lunch at one of his favourite souvlaki restaurants and then mum made him the most amazing chocolate ripple birthday cake. Yum
