Our trip to Brighton

Some of the things we got up to when we stayed in Hobart with Collette last week...

Drove via the Great Lakes..........

Came across some weird rock sculptures as we headed out of the Central Highlands toward Bothwell. (ps - Bothwell has a crap bakery - they microwave the sausage rolls to heat them)

Don't go via the Great Lakes if you have just washed your car - which we hadn't because as fellow mafia car owners know.... who can ever keep a black car clean and those who can, have way too much time on their hands... or if they are mafia they pay someone to clean it everyday. Note to oneself - must establish ties with mafia.

On Fri night, Collette, Esther TT and I had a girls night.... pizza, caramel cheesecake, City of Angels, facials and hand massages. I'm not quite sure what Jonty and baby Minol thought of it all but it did us the world of good.

BEFORE.....

AFTER...........

We went to the movies.....

Ice Age 3 for Simon and the girls and Oliver. Harry Potter for Coll, me and Jont.


I spent most of the time at the top of the stairs jiggling Jonty but I still got to watch it. It is the best HP movie thus far so if you are a HP fan you are in for a treat.

Jonty started sitting up unassisted without wobbling and toppling over straightaway....

He thinks he is so clever now...

We spent alot of time driving and the kids occupied themselves by watching DVDs in the car....

The kids did their own facials with face paint....



We had dinner with Ben and Chelsea Emery who I spent many a fun time in our YSA days. Chels and Ben were two of my closest friends in YSA and so I was so excited when they got married 10 yrs ago now. We always have the best time when we get together. It's like no time has past. Friendships like that are rare.

We did some shopping. Coll babysat while Simon and I went out for tea. Jonty never slept at night because he loves his cot so much but made up for it during the day with his gorgeous grin. (sorry about the morning hair Collette).
