Week 2 has been a week of friends, family and the good things about summer… It has also been another good week for the list. In fact, even Isaac was able to cross something his first list.
We started this week with great food, beautiful sunshine and good friends as we learnt how to barefoot bowl at my sister in law’s Hen’s… and despite having a few family members that are quite good at bowling… my skills left a lot to be desired. We then continued to celebrate Ness and our new skills (even if they remained poor) at a roof top bar with delicious tapas. And… seeing as Dave was a Bridesman, our whole family was able to spend the afternoon together… it was a pretty great way to start a week. Learning a new game also meant that we crossed no. 39. Play a Game of some kind, off the list.
I fully embraced the fact that my bestie has been home for Christmas, so we made the most of her presence with walks, dinners and a delicious brunch at our favourite local Half Half. At brunch Isaac got to cross his first thing off the list as he hung out with his ladies and loved every minute. He also got to wear his new jeans which match his Aunty K’s. (I also got to brunch with my besties and given that one of them is hard to brunch with living in London… we both got to cross this off on the same day, so Isaac’s picture is with K).
We won a donut wall to use to celebrate Isaac’s birthday later in the year… so keep an eye out for that…
We hung out with family for take out, afternoon tea and post holiday catch ups, making the most of the pre-wedding celebrations and hanging out with family that have flown across the ditch from NZ.
We finished the week off with Ness’ wedding. The wedding was the perfect nod to her and her partner… now husband, relaxed, fun and a little bit surprising. There is no one else I know that could have embraced a torrential downpour through your whole wedding as well as these guys did. Not only did they just go with it, but the enjoyed it and helped us to enjoy it to… because who would have a thought that a wedding in the middle of January could be quite that wet.
We also made he most of the glorious… although occasionally way to hot weather, with lots of family walks… the fit pig is back… but I think I need to do a few more walks before I can actually cross it off the list. So there you go week 2… a little bit like a primary school diary entry… but I will get better at it.
