I have loads to do at the moment but I have spent the afternoon make scrunchies with my niece, she is off on her Netball teams end of season trip. As is everything with my niece it is always last minute we made 20. They are off on a house boat for 3 nights it did sound like fun however I think I would like it more with about 18 less girls.

It is hard to believe it is Wednesday and I haven't posted for 3 weeks. It was a long weekend here in South Australia. If you are looking for cratyness you can leave now I have been doing bits and pieces but nothing to show.
Saturday morning I got up to this.

Lucas and Nic got home at 1am and decided to sleep in their swags in the back yard!!!!!!!!!Then the troop started arriving it was Grand Final Day and the BBQue was at our place.

Not quite my standard of photography LOL. Not sure why we needed a photo of the lounge and the front door looking out.

Long weekend

There was tree climbing if you look close you can see a blue shirt up the tree apparently he got to the top, footy and who knows what the broom was for out on the Circuit.

Long weekend

There was a swim in the lake although it was not hot and a shopping trolley which was found and returned the next day to the nearest shopping centre. So in all it was a long day with lots of sore heads.
Sunday saw Gemma and I playing with cupcakes.

Monday was very peaceful it was just Tony and I we went for a walk down the beach and had a meal sitting out side in the lovely sunshine.
