The week that was…week 34: beverages, weather and domesticity

2013-08-12 13.11.03I have been making a concerted effort to find time for lunch with James or afternoon tea with the boys each week to make up for the amount of time spent in travel/derby/work. So this week started with lunch with James followed by hipster coffees.

2013-08-13 13.12.21My attempts to use tea as a replacement for fizzy caffeinated beverages have been progressing apace. New teas help too. I do not wish to give up the FCBs entirely, but not to rely on them as a daily (and sometimes twice daily) occurence.

2013-08-14 09.34.21What is better than a visit from a friend/fellow derbier/former staff member with a rainbow cupcake. And the rainbow goes all the way through! I love these kinds of visits. Thanks Sass!

2013-08-14 22.15.48 2013-08-14 22.27.10I got distracted at D&D and attempted to create a Brady Bunch family with beholders and other monsters. Yes, I admit it, I am a giant nerd.

2013-08-15 15.02.49With the quiet of caretaker (the period of the election where the public service is limited in what it can do), I finished early on Thursday to pick Jude and Zac up from school. Sebastian had a Tournament of the Minds meeting. Zac showed off some of his work.

2013-08-15 16.04.43 2013-08-15 16.04.47The three of us then went out for afternoon tea which apparently had to include gelato. Well, you know, it isn’t all bad.

2013-08-16 07.09.18 2013-08-16 07.10.04Firday morning I got up early for a ride around the lake. My first in ages, I chose a particularly cold and foggy morning for it.

2013-08-17 12.09.14Saturday was sunnier, but still freezing for the usual hockey and football regime. Both Jude and Sebastian managed to get awards for their playing in one week.

2013-08-17 15.04.14The jonquils are trying to say that spring is coming, but seriously the freezing winds say otherwise.

2013-08-18 10.55.04Before hours and hours of derby Sunday afternoon-evening, it was time for some domesticity. Our dishwasher has still not been replaced and we are all getting pretty sick of handwashing dishes.

Sebastian and James set about sorting the pantry. Well, James did, and somehow Sebastian (and me, to a lesser extent) got sucked into the task. Life is a lot more organised now though.

2013-08-18 11.06.32Zac fell off his bike onto a wall and scraped his neck (yes, we wondered too). After the initial tears, the pain seemed to ebb away quickly enough.
