The Weekend

The teen finally has her new bed and it is in her room after spending the best part of 2 weeks in pieces in the loungeroom. A big bed for my big girl.

My neice celebrated her 6th Birthday. Notice the shiner she scored at her party? I found her a cute little bento style snack box at the $2 shop of all places. I also found some adorable scissors there that I just had to buy.

We watched the Hawks get flogged at the footy with ace friends and enjoyed Hot chocolate here (which was about all we could afford!)
I made the yummiest french Onion soup which I think will become a Winter staple. The ballerina ate THREE bowls for dinner!
I enjoyed catching up with my Mum and Dad to hear their news. They are BOTH exhibiting quilts in a local quilt show which is very exciting. Their first quilts I might add. My dad in particular has caught the quilting bug, after attending a class late last year, really just to hold Mum's hand! Go Dad!


  1. Wow! That's certainly a jam packed weekend!! That shiner is a beauty! :)

  2. that is so sweet that your dad has got into quilting! sounds like a great weekend :)

  3. Those scissors are the cutest! I hope your niece likes her bento box - it's very cute!

  4. I remember getting my first queen size bed when I was a teenager. It was the most wonderful thing.

    Those scissors are absolutely gorgeous, and what a shiner. Impressive. I hope it didn't hurt too much.

  5. Correction to Dad's quilt.Combined with Mum's to make a wall hanging for our family room.
