What a great weekend. The weather has been unsettled, but a great excuse to eat chocolate and watch movies.
We did the normal family things, and the not so normal for us.
Date night for Mr Treacy and I. An early booking so as to avoid crowds, noise and to ensure I didn't fall asleep in my dessert. Thanks to inspration from a Masterchef episode, we chose to dine on Tapas. The restaurant; Bolero, in Albany was quite scrummy and just the fact that we were out in the evening together (despite the early hour), without kids to watch, was fab :-)
See.......it's night time and I'm still awake, (and Mark isn't holding me up either).
Thanks for a nice evening my lovely man!
Long weekends mean swings to be swung...
and enjoying a moment of sun.......
And despite the amount of chocolate consumed over the weekend, there is always time and space for ice-blocks.
ANZAC DAY: Phoebe has a new routine since daylight savings began. The 5.30am starts are a bit painful, but this morning it seemed appropriate. The sun rose outside our kitchen while the last post and pipes were playing on the live television coverage. I will attend a dawn service one day, but today I was glad to be snuggled up in my dressing gown as it was pouring down in the North this morning!! I guess those young lads sitting in trenches on a rainy morning many years earlier were no doubt thinking of their own warm kitchens back home.
Every anzac day we use Grandma's Edmonds cookbook to make the ANZAC biscuits. Two batches this year. Mark's perfectly executed and mine; tasty but without the rolled oats (oops). Silly error, but the taste delicious and both batches are CHEWY!! Love them. Check out last year's post on the ANZC topic here
And this..........which is in here cause it makes me giggle like crazy, is Phoebe's view of the world. Funny, happy girl!!
I hope your weekend break was memorable.
