The week that was…week 35: seasons change

Started the week with the boys coming and meeting me for post school afternoon tea. I had to go back to work, but nice to see them to break up the day. And Zachary with his chocolate face.

2013-08-21 21.58.39We have gotten back into pretty regular D&D which is pleasing. And young Andrew has been bringing wine which is even more pleasing still.

2013-08-22 08.13.44As is our usual thing, Zac and I walked to school together early on Thursday so he could go to choir. He has become quite obsessed with the fake fur scarf thing and can be seen wearing it in all sorts of odd ways. This is one of the more conventional.

2013-08-22 20.51.10Thursday night was derby trivia night – a chance for everyone to get together and have fun. As president, I got the job as quizmaster. Fortunately, other people wrote all the questions.

2013-08-23 10.35.25 2013-08-23 10.35.34Friday morning was a Daffodil Day morning tea at work. The pink cupcakes were delicious.

2013-08-23 18.38.48James made Heston style roast potatoes again. Magnificence.

Saturday morning and Sebastian and I headed to hockey via Lonsdale Street Roasters 23. The lovely sunshine made it very nice to sit outside.

2013-08-24 10.59.05Here is the hockey team. It was their second to last game of the regular season. after a number of glorious victories they were up against the top team and lost, but we are hoping for a more successful rematch in the grand final if all goes their way.

2013-08-24 11.55.25Time then for the last football match of the season.

2013-08-24 12.12.16Zac was along to watch.

2013-08-24 13.45.10I got a bit experimental during Jude’s last match of the season.

Saturday night was derby night – woo hoo!

2013-08-24 18.01.36Sebastian was the lone Black and Bluebelles supporter for the evening as the rest of us were cheering for the Red Bellied Blackhearts, particularly because my friends Bubble and Kat were making their debut appearances.

2013-08-24 18.13.21 2013-08-24 20.12.29Sadly, Sebastian was the one with the last laugh as the Bluebelles won convincingly – but both Bubble and Kat played excellently, with Bubble outscoring ShortStop twice!

2013-08-25 11.12.48All three boys could not resist the lure of merchandise and now are the proud owners of Surly Griffins caps, paid for out of their own pocket money.

Sunday was the Tournament of the Minds competition for Sebastian (which I will blog about separately). It was lovely to have Jackie and the two Andrews come and join us to watch Sebastian’s presentation, and afterwards we all headed off to a lunch of many dumplings.
