Easter was a great break for all of us, especially Justin and I as we headed off to the Rocky Horror Show and 2 nights at the Star City Casino in Sydney. It was all very cruisey as we caught the Express Bus right into Central and then light rail from there to the Casino. We didn’t have to fight about directions or pay tolls!
The show was pure Rocky Horror fantasy, but way too loud (says the audiologist!). On Friday we went to the Powerhouse Museum and I saw the Diana exhibition. Her wedding dress was amazing, there were things from her childhood and the original Eulogy by her brother with crossouts and additions. Goosebumpy kind of stuff. After that we went to the Imax theatre and saw a 3D show about Whales and Dolphins. That was brilliant and I wished the kids were there to see it too. I got over that pretty quick though.
Came home Saturday to an exhausted Mum, who had minded all four girls for us. Brilliant job Mum. Love you for it!
Easter Sunday was low key, but began with an Easter Egg hunt in the park at the end of our street with 4 neighbouring families. That was a lot of fun and even Amy scored a lot of loot and tried to get it in her mouth all in one go. We are still eating our way though the collection and I might just make a chocolate pudding today and put the googey eggs in the middle. Yum Yum!
Yesterday I did my first ever Tuckshop duty. Do you know what? My children didn’t even come and visit me there. I had to send a classmate out to bring them in. I think they forgot about me!
Last week Meg was honoured as “Student of the week” for her class. Every teacher nominates a child in their class and they go out at assembly to receive their certificate. Out of those children one of them becomes “Student of the School” for that week. My little Meggie got it! She thinks it was for good colouring in, but it was really for having good manners and being clever in class (you know the sort of thing I mean!). So her reign of glory finished Friday, but I am still very proud of her. I think Holly is a little jealous, but as SRC she has her own glory and Meggie was a deserving winner!
Jess has had her hair cut. I asked the girl to cut it like “Dora the Explorer” and she gave me a dumb look and said “Do you mean like Posh Spice?” so I returned the dumb look and said “No Dora the Explorer!”. She now looks like Posh the Explorer. It is very cute though and scarily enough it makes her look like me and my mum. I though she was pure Woly but there you go!!
Last night Meg did a dance Demo at Westfield Belconnen. She did very well on centre stage with kids from her class. She and Addy were stuck at the back as there are the newies and don’t know the routine that well. Addy’s aunt could be heard about the crowd “Nobody puts Baby in a corner!”. Nonetheless they did OK.
After that Mum, Lisa and I went out to the Theatre to see Harry Connick Jr. Oh boy he was fantastic. It was a really great show and he is so funny. Best live show I’ve seen ever I reckon.
So that is us up to the minute. Jess has a party today for one of her Playschool friends. We are lights out and appliances off for Earth Hour tonight and tomorrow we have an after party for the Carnival Organisers.
Have a great weekend too 🙂
