We have had a great weekend. Yesterday, we spent the money my parents give us for Christmas. It went a long way. We got an annual membership to a localish event, a meal and a session of Ice-skating. We enjoyed the whole day. The Ice-skating was fantastic but much too short a time. I really remembered how to do it. It was interesting to observe how differently my girls faced this event. The eldest held on to the side for a lot of the time and only very tentatively tried skating in the open rink! The youngest took a more dare-devil approach. She spent a lot of time on her bottom because of it. She also, took my husband and myself down with her at different times. I am going to investigate Ice-rinks near us and maybe go more often.
Today, we have had a great day. Dinner was ready in the slow-cook as soon as we came home from church, all that was needed was to crack open the packet of Doritos. The weather here has been beautiful and spring-like so we went for a walk along a local cliff and down to the beach. It was good. The girls got a little wet as they misjudged the speed of the tide coming in. When we got home the girls started to build a Knex set with their dad as I got caught up with emails.
It has been one of those great weekends that we don't always get.
