I spent the weekend moving around various locations eating. Girls night on Saturday for dinner, curry, squealing and discussions about our children and how staying at home is harder than going to work. ( but both rewarding in there own way)

I went to a friends- from- work-  BBQ on Sunday where a group of 7 intelligent women set fire to the BBQ not in a way it is suppose to be set on fire and our solution, momentarily, was to chuck the entire BBQ in the pool. Luckily we came to our senses and smothered it with an old towel. The level of calm was hilarious. We all just looked at it thinking " this is not good but let's not panic' - looking around the room, and considering the occupations of those present it was where you would want to be in a crisis.
Sunday night Chef cooked and some friends came over.

          There was a lot of food but we ate most of it before I could take pictures.
There was some decorating of the fairy ( altar)  door, Chef tells Busy all the time that when he was walking past the door he saw it close- so they are home now.

There seems to be so much wildlife around at the moment, heaps of wallabies and lots of little lizards , like this little beauty.

Have a lovely week!


  1. I love it when the fairies are at home. Everything is in its place and all is at peace with the world. Not sure about you, but I'm drinking cleansing mint tea for the rest of the week...

  2. It sounds like a fun one.
    Ours was the opposite, forgetting to eat until too late and then scrambling something together. X

  3. sounds like a great way to pass a few days!

  4. It all sounds so nice! I think we may need to gussy up the fairy house, it took quite a beating this winter. If only the sun would come out for a day or so!

    Good food, good friends, what could be better?

  5. I'm with tania, I think some mint tea sound perfect! I wonder if I could have mine in bulk!

  6. Sounds fun, and funny, & filling! Busy is gorgeous, as always.

  7. Oh, I would have loved to see some photos of the smoldering BBQ in the pool!! Sounds like a fabulous weekend.

  8. ok, now i'm hungry! those mushrooms look delish. oh and of course the crab. I had fresh caught crab last week so can't complain :-)


what a nice person you are- taking the time to comment in this busy hectic world...Thank you!!
