Fathers Day

Hobart’s weather certainly turned it on for Father’s Day yesterday – it was such a beautiful day.  We went for a spin in the Speedy Boat with my sister Cath and the crew, where we stopped into Kings Pier Marina for takeaway coffee from T42.  We sat in the sun basking in the glory of these Tasmanian spring days and true to form, Jamesy Boy fell asleep in my arms for his morning nap – bless!

On Saturday night, Nick and I went to the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania’s Blue Water Ball.  It was fun to don the high heels, my Alannah Hill ‘bunny’ bolero which I wore to my wedding and enjoy bubbles, conversations and a boogy.

Poppy told me I looked like a ‘Super Beautiful Cinderella‘!  I would have turned into a pumpkin because we didn’t get home until 1:30am – 4 hours past my bedtime!!

We also enjoyed a breakfast cook up of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon over the weekend.  On Friday we popped into town where Poppy enjoyed a baby chino at Villino Cafe, and James destroyed some takeaway Sushi – a very messy affair!

Mmmm ... Breakfast

Spring has Sprung

IMG_2709

Wow – what glorious weather, spring has certainly sprung!  We had such a great weekend as my sister Rob and her husband Paul were visiting us from Castlemaine.  I love hanging out with my sisters and this weekend was no exception.

Nick and Poppy had organised a father/daughter boat trip to Bruny Island for Saturday night and were joined by James and his daughter Meg in their boat!  Pirate Poppy packed her wheely bag full of books and toys and apparently had a fantastic time away with her Dad!

I, on the other hand, had a lovely weekend with little James.  I can’t believe how quiet the house is without a two-year old tearing around.

I met my lovely sisters for a picnic at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens for lunch on Saturday, where we unfurled in the warmth of the sun, ate beautiful food and chatted for hours (as James slept soundly in his pram).  It was so delightful!

The next morning my pirates returned from their adventures and we all met up with Rob, Paul, Cath and Bronte at the Botanical Gardens again for more food, sun and chats.  Xx
