I feel like every week I seem to be repeating myself. Colleagues will ask me how my weekend was, and every week my answer is the same "good, but not long enough!" ugh!
Friday night we headed out with a few friends to see the Butterfly Effect live.
What a fantastic gig! Unfortunately, the Effected tour is their final as a group as the singer is leaving to pursue other things. Mega sadface!
We were lucky enough to meet the group after the gig... top blokes!
I didn't have anything for them to sign, as they took the tickets from us at the door! Instead I rummaged around in my handbag and found the box from my Essendon radio. Although not the usual fan merchandise that they're used to, they willingly obliged and signed the little cardboard box for me. Glenn did flip the box over and realise, so we had a nice chat about his supercoach team!
Whilst I did that, Liam papped away and managed to capture a few blurry shots for me.
We were one of the last people to meet them (I think you actually needed a VIP ticket to do that, but we managed to talk our way through security!) and had the chance to have a chat with Clint about his last shows with the band, and scored a hug as we said goodbye.
After the gig we headed to a bar near by...
...and consumed these shots as well as copious amounts of other various beverages.
These delightful little drinks were part of the reason I was feeling a little worse for wear on Saturday morning, and needed a hearty dose of this to remedy that!
As much as I would have liked to have spent the day lazing around the house feeling sorry for myself, this was not an option. Instead I was awake bright and early with a day full of house inspections to attend.
We have come across the most GORGEOUS little property, and have both promptly fallen in love. It's not perfect, and it is missing a few aspects which we had initially thought were important, but this place is absolutely stunning and we both agree that we can work around it. Unfortunately, however, the property is in the higher ranges of the budget we had set, so we're just trying to work out whether we can sustain this long-term, reviewing all of our options, and trying our very best not to rush in with our hearts instead of our heads.
Aaaaaanyway! Moving along now... we had dinner with my parents, aunt, uncle and cousins on Saturday night. Liam prepared a yummy pub-style parma meal for us!
He had decided to attempt to make my favourite sweet potato fries in addition to his normal chips, but unfortunately didn't account for the difference in cooking time so ended up massively overcooking the sweet potato... which resulted in crispy potato chips with crumbly bits of crunchy sweet potato through it! Not how he had envisaged, but still very tasty!
My Aunt and Uncle are moving house this week, and have offered us their couch and this gorgeous step cabinet that we have loved ever since seeing it! On Sunday we went over to pick it up and help them pack a few things.
Adeline had other ideas though! Instead of helping pack, she demanded I come into her room and help her build a Playdoh village for the two Playdoh families which we created. I do as I'm told!
You can't see them, but there are two families living in their little chimneyed houses. There's the Blue family living in the house on the left, and their neighbours the Greens in the smaller house next door. However the Greens have a (green) friend called Greece, who also lives with them!
Just between you and me, Baby Blue looks a little too green for my liking...
I think Mummy Blue and Daddy Green are having a little fun on the side!
