Taking off again

Well as you know we took off to Perth last week for the football & man didnt we have a fabulous time!!

The weather was pretty crappy on the Fri & Sun, BUT thankfully Saturday was glorious sunshine for the footy & much to Natasha’s delight the West Coast Eagles won the game. And much to our delight she has finally stopped singing the bloody theme song!!!

Now while we were there enjoying ourselves we bought a new car!!!!!!!! Soooooooo we are off to Perth again on Friday to pick her up. Whilst I am extremely excited about the new car I am very sad to be saying goodbye to my little zippster.

I love being able to park anywhere in my Rio & zip about on the smell of an oily rag, but poor Miss Lanky Legs (AKA Natasha ) is getting a bit tall to be sitting in the back seat, esp when her father drives. And the lack of boot space was noticeable when we came home on Sunday with extra shopping!!

So the new 380 platinum we are getting should solve all our problems but may create some for me until I get used to parking a large car again 😆 Oh & then theres the power too as I am going from a 1.6 4cyl motor to a 3.8 V6…………ohhhh thankgod its got cruise control me thinks 😆

Though I think I may have to hide the keys as Sunday I take off to Coral Bay & wont be home until Friday so Bob will be hooning about everywhere in her!!!

So until I get home from camp

Hittin’ the frog & toad

For those that dont know Aussie Rhyming Slang it means we are hitting the road, travelling. We leave tomorrow morning (Friday) & return Sunday night

After having the worst school holidays on record, with both my kids unbelievably sick we are off to the big smoke (city) for the weekend. Natasha recently won tickets to the football at Subiaco Oval so we are off, much to Bobs disgust as he hates AFL,to watch West Coast Eagles & St Kilda battle it out.

The Target toy sale also starts today so we will be visiting Target whilst in Perth & the kids are taking their hard earned (yeah right!) pocket money with them for a spend up I know they are eyeing off a couple of DS games among other things. I am hoping to get a new pair of boots as my old faithfuls have given up the ghost. The zipper sticks & the soles are cracked 😦

While we are there I would love to go to the Janome shop & check out the MB4 *drool* but I know if I check them out I will hanker after one even more. Better keep putting my lotto tickets on I think!!!

Have a great weekend everyone

Happy Stitching
