In the words of Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones Diary –
For those of you unfamiliar it means a short weekend holiday away.
This last weekend we took a trip up to my sister Nicky’s. We were a little concerned we weren’t going to make it after getting problem’s with getting our car back after having central locking installed. Thankfully we managed to get it back, minus the fobs but still it didn’t hold us back.
Side note: we like having a fobbed car once more :)
It was a lovely weekend and reminded me how nice it is to just get out of our normal surroundings for a short time.
One of the enjoyable moments was taking a walk around the back streets of Bulahdelah then sitting on nice grass and letting the kids play and Toby and I relaxing in the afternoon sun, without a care in the world.
Short Story: I took lollie (candy) treats for everyone for the weekend. The little kids had gone to sleep before they got theirs, so I put them aside for the next day. In the morning Gigi or was it TJ was asking for ice cream for breakfast, thinking my sister would naturally say “no” I said “ask your Aunt”. Aunty Nicky of course did the opposite and said sure. I said hey, you were supposed to say “no”, she responded “well I’m going to spoil them”, and she said at least it’s not chocolate!
I said OIC and then said, Ezra would you like some chocolate, and he promptly said “yes”, so I went and got the chocolate and handed it all out. Ezra, TJ and Gigi were in kiddy heaven.
What they are eating is called a Chocolate freckle, it was followed by a white chocolate frog. You can just see how happy Ezra is, it was a great shot!
