We were booked into to go for a holiday to a little town 2 hours north, but due to a severe weather warning and no other accommodation available, we used the opportunity to stay at home and do fun things with the kids.  We went to Scitech on the Friday and the older boys got to watch a movie in the planetarium with Daddy.  We then had take away for dinner and watched Star Wars for the first time.  Eli liked it, but Zi loved it.  The swords captured his imagination for weeks afterwards.  We went to Ikea and bought a new dinner table – yay, now Zeek can sit with us at dinner.  It also means that we now have a craft table (the old six seater table) and an eight to ten seater dinner table to utilise during the day.  It was decided that we buy the plastic tablecloth with jelly beans all over it.  It is driving me mad.  I can’t see dirt on my table and am constantly putting things on wet patches!

We went to visit Father M on Sunday.  We attended mass at his parish (an hours drive away)and then spent to rest of the morning and afternoon with him.  The kids absolutely love Father M.  It was really nice to spend some time with him.

Derek and I did some cryptic crosswords together and we all spent a night in our sleeping bags in the lounge room!

Though our weekend didn’t go as planned, we were glad to take time out of our busy lives and enjoy each other and create memories for the future.
