Whoa Nelly. What a busy, happy weekend. It's almost a case of thank goodness it's almost over so I can get back to routine. What what what? I hear you squark. While I don't dig Mondays, this weekend has left me pooped!
Matt's studying for an exam. I managed to take the two smalls out of the house for the two days and as a result. Pooped is what I am!
Saturday was a 1st birthday party and a garage sale. I offered to make some mini-cupcakes (for the party, not the sale). I made 50 of the little beauties, beautifully iced (butter icing mmm mmm). Unfortunately an incident whereby juggling two small children, a bag, two containers of cakes and the bonnet of our car resulted in half the cakes being tossed upside down. Yes. My handiwork in tatters, I fronted up to the party with a very messy arrangement of cakes. Thankfully they still tasted good, even if they did look like they'd already met a taste test from a tribe of three year olds. Hmph.
When we got home we bribed one of the dogs to play in our circus. He jumped through a hoop in return for a handful of kibbles. We treat our circus animals very well.
Sunday we headed off to meet a good friend in Bondi. We flew a kite for a while, hit the beach for a wee while, had a gelato (our first for the season), went to the skate park, then meandered through the shops. Such a great, tiring day. Headed home to get Tiny down for a sleep, and I headed off to a flea market, and then to Spotlight.
