You know those weekends that you have every now and then where you get to Sunday night and you just can't imagine how the last 2 days and nights could have been any better? I've just come off one of those. It started on Friday night when, although we watched the worst movie of 2010, (and one of the worst I'd ever seen!!) I did some maintenance work on Hubs' dreads. It was a nice relaxing evening with Chanbe asleep in bed, and us spending quality Hubs and Wifey time together.
Saturday came around and we decided to go for a walk in the morning to check out a couple of garage sales. We only ended up with a couple of things (a book for Hubs and a beanie for Chance - see next post) so we decided to head to our favourite place for coffee in Wang - Cafe Derailleur aka the bead shop. But more about that little gem of a place later. After enjoying yet another top-notch coffee we headed home. It was lunch time and our bellies needed filling.
Dinner Saturday night was to be at our new friends house. I know Kyra through mothers group (more about that later too!) and we really hit it off once we got to know each other. The more we chatted the more we realised how much not only we, but our hubbies had in common! (like they both have dreads! More about that later too too!!) Anyway, we've really missed being able to have people over for dinner so I put a zany idea to Kyra - could we cook a meal and bring it over to have at their place! And she was all for it. So I put the rabbit stew on around midday, and headed over to their place at 3 to prepare the gnocchi. Once that was done (and after a cuppa) I took Chanbe for a walk in the pram for over an hour, as I wanted him to have a good sleep before our night out.
We headed over for dinner and had the stew and gnocchi with home-made foccacia courtesy of Kyra. It was all utterly delish.
We then juggled our little boys (not literally - but what a show that would be!) and tried to get them to sleep with not much luck. They both wanted to stay up and party with the big kids (us). We had some home-made apple pie for dessert and topped it off with some choc-coated glazed oranges I had made. It was so nice to be amongst such wonderful company and to feel completely at home in someone else's house. We walked home (they live just around the corner) and I was absolutely shocked to see that it was 11:30pm! We just had such a great night that the time flew by. It's so lovely to be making new friends, but it's also bitter sweet as we'll be leaving Wang in just 6 short weeks. But hopefully there will be more dinner parties to come - at our new place!
Sunday's fun will come soon...
