Sunday Stream

I hope everyone had a lovely few days over the weekend, and found plenty of time to relax.  It's starting to heat up at home, with the sun out all day, and the cold weather easing off.  I must admit, I love cold weather more than anything, but I am very muchly looking forward to feeling the sun on me (safely of course).

I had a really lovely weekend.  On Friday night, Jake, Shane and I sat around downstairs drinking some wine and listening to music.  I cooked some bruschetta, and after two bottles of wine decided to make a gourmet pasta dish with mushrooms sauteed in butter and truffle sauce.  Don't ask me how I managed this, but I didn't burn myself or anything in the house, and the bowls were met with, "This is the BEST meal I've ever had", by Jake and Shane. We had a really nice night, which like all the other nights with this pair, completely spiralled out of control.

On Saturday I went for a drive with my mum to do some shopping and grab a coffee.  It was a lovely morning out, shopping for plants, photo frames and cotton.

I had a Murder Mystery party that night to attend, and that was an absolute hoot.  We had some punch, and ate too many cupcakes, toblerone cheesecake and spinach and ricotta pastries, before we'd even solved the mystery.  It was very "Cluedo", and a really lovely night spent with friends, laughing and trying to pin one of the girls as the suspect.

We finished off the weekend on Sunday with Jake and I going for a drive out to the Weir for a morning of fishing. After we fueled up, bought some take away coffees and some bait we drove out to a quiet spot.  It was lovely, I threw my line out, and soaked up the sun on my very white legs. We just relaxed and potted around in the water before we drove back into town and spent the afternoon out in the yard.  I was reading magazines and browsing the internet, and Jake was busy at work on his 4wd, installing drawers in the back for our next camping adventure. 

I must admit, I love camping, and I can't wait for the car to be all kitted out with the bells and whistles for the trips we have on the horizon.  Jake is as proud as punch of his car, and is already planning trips to Fraser Island, Cape York and The Kimberley's.  Me, you ask? Well, I am stocking up on cute enamel cups and kaftans for my lazy days spent relaxing in all the different locations we travel to.  Sounds perfect to me.

What did you all get up to on your weekend? Fly any kites? Fire twirling or frog races?
