Awesome weekend

We had a lovely weekend!

Friday was an absolutely awful day and I left the office in tears, a mixture of unforseen costs to add onto an already stressed i-have-no-job budget and frustrations with being treated like an imbecile even though I regard myself above average intelligence! (hey you gotta back your own horse šŸ™‚

But enough of that kakĀ cos I wanna tell you how my weekend panned out and it was pretty darn cool!

SO I had dinner booked with my person, Sal, at our little local , Simply Asia in Bryanston. The food is alway a winner. Its fresh and doesn’tĀ leave you feelingĀ like you could roll out of there! We arrived at 7:30pm and I heard Sal saying toĀ the restaurant manager 8 and I thought. N0Ā half past seven , not 8, and then I turned around and there they were, 8 of my closest girlfriends! And true to form I CRIED!

It was such a lovely evening and good on my Sal for organising. Man she’s a good friend!

Then Saturday I had Sal and I booked in at the Camelot student spa for PedisĀ and me a back massageĀ and Sal a mani. UnfortunatelyĀ my therapist had car trouble so I only gotĀ the massageĀ and Sal the mani, so we canned the PedisĀ and left there feelingĀ a little cheated.Ā We decided to make up for it and headed to MuggĀ and bean for breakfast.

So I arrived home at 11am feeling utterly guilty at leaving Daddy abs to look after the ginger but also a little rejuvenatedĀ from the stress of the past 6 months!

Then reality hit and we started packing (while the ginger slept). We knocked a good 10 boxes, brining the total to 23. I’ve long let go of my bet and Daddy abs is probably gonna be spot on, on 40 boxes!

Sunday I was super excited for out PhotoshootĀ we’d planned with most of our mates.Unfortunately our photographer cancelled on us last minute. But where there’sĀ a will there’s a way’, so armed with a tripod and camera and some very willing mates we headed off to the park just down the road for some pics. We got some lovelies.



We had some hysterical moments getting the kids pic as we had a runner (aka ‘Luko'”affectionately name by my son). We managed to get him to stay still by seating him.



Sadly as with all good things, they must come to an end and we dropped off Daddy Abs at the airport. Dan was with me and he cried pretty much the whole way home šŸ˜¦ He had such an amazing time with his daddy this weekend. He does however seem to understand whenĀ I say daddy’s coming tomorrow so roll on Wednesday so that can be true!!

How was your weekend? Hope it was a goodie.

Single figures toĀ go till theĀ move Yipeeeee!!!

    LOL! Love the running pics šŸ™‚
    The photos are perfect! You didn’t need the tog after all, and I spot a tog in that group anyway šŸ˜‰
    As for your 1st paragraph, don’t take it personally… I had a similar day today and went home moaning to Lance.

  2. Shame, you are going to miss your friends. Lets hope that they are all keen to visit you at the beach. My weekend was great, I got to go to the bush, which I always love.
