A very busy but satisfying weekend: Saturday and Sunday
Saturday, the little Eaglemont Village which is literally around the corner from me (20 metres) had its Spring Festival. This was such a fun day, with a sausage sizzle, a petting farm, rock climbing, face painting, lots of Father's Day stalls and a jumping castle. TraderVic, DD and I all went around to have a snag (sausage in bread) and to watch the fun. We caught up with friends and neighbours we hadn't seen for a while and the sun shone and it was really great. Sorry, that I don't have any photos to show you but I stupidly forgot to take my camera.
Sunday, I got up early to make carrot cake and scones for my family coming over for morning tea to celebrate Father's Day and my Dad's 93rd birthday - altogether we had 3 Dads at morning tea. Now, this I did take photos of to show you:
Getting the morning tea table ready:

Furio fled up to the top of the spiral staircase when all of the guests arrived:

It turns out that our surname dates from the 7th century (as a first name initially) and then by the Domesday Book was recorded as a surname. How cool is that? Dad seemed really chuffed by his present.
DS2 was only at the morning tea very briefly as he had to head off to his Football (Aussie Rules) Final. I headed over to the game in the afternoon and it was magic - the sun was shining and the boys had such a good time playing (although they lost, unfortunately) and my best friend came to watch with me and we had a good natter. It was really pleasant. Then, in the evening, the kids and I took TraderVic out for a pizza dinner - good stuff!
Just to finish off, here is a picture of DS2 - he asked me to take it for him to take to a job interview he was going to (for a second part time job):
By the way, he is so pleased, he got the job!
Lastly, have a think about putting your name forward for my PIF - comment on this post if you would like your name in the draw.
