A week of events

Just had a really busy week
Celia is home for 2 weeks as she does some training (2days only!) for the School Reviewer job she has here in August.
Because she was here, Tony, a retired man of leisure now, decided to come over from Perth.
Tony with some Western Bulldogs (Footscray) items for his grandson. A  huge fan
He stayed at the local hotel and we met up each of the 5 days he was here. He did some touring around including visiting the site of our old house in Beaumaris, pulled down but still no building after 18mth. We three went out to Paris Cat Jazz Club and a meal in Hardware lane I think the first time we have ever gone out together!
He also organised a lunch  with some of our old childhood next door neighbours. Sandy and her sister Cheryl came as well as Alan Grant from over the road.
None of us live in Beaumaris now; we were the last to leave. In our heyday there were about 23 kids out on the streets or bushland.
A great deal of the meal was discussing the exploits of the bad boys of the area and the freedom we enjoyed roaming the neighbourhood in the 50's- 60'.

Tony, Celia and I also went to visit Bridie and Sean and Dylan who is growing into a chubby charmer!!  5 months now...time flies as they say!
Sue and Wendy after the show
On Sunday I went with Celia, Sue and Wendy to the Williamstown Little Theatre to see Two weeks with the Queen a lovely funny and poignant story by Morris Gleitzman. The lead Tim Walker and Dylan Boyd playing  two young boys were great esp Tim. A really enjoyable show!

Kate and her cake (before we added 3 more candles!)
 I finished the week with a lovely Roast Lamb dinner with Chocolate Ripple cake for Kate's 12th birthday today.
Nick picking the melted wax off his dessert
 She enjoyed all her presents including about 8 books!
She also liked the Monkey hat Celia added at the last minute!
Clowning around
I spent part of today getting soil and mulch for the new garden bed. A lovely sunny day to spend in the garden
