My Relaxing Weekend

We played tourists in our own city last night and had a ball. We went out to lunch at the Kings Hotel and had a fantastic meal and then got on one of the new Adelaide trams and went to Glenelg. My hubby and his mate kept the tram conductors and most of the passengers in fits of laughter for the entire journey - they're like a comedy act after a few beers.

Walked down along the Glenelg jetty and then sampled the alcoholic beverages at the Grand Hotel on the foreshore. Back on the tram into the city - more comedy from the boys and then onto the Old Adelaide Gaol for our ghost tour.  

I was extremely disappointed that we didn't meet any ghosts, because I was ready for them. With the history of the place you can totally understand why there have been so many sightings. I think the boys would have scared any ghostly beings away anyway.
We headed back to our luxurious room where the four of us shared a picnic dinner with cheeses, meats and crackers with more alcoholic beverages. We were totally stuffed from lunch and didn't feel like another full meal. It was just a nice relaxing and fun evening. Once our friends headed back to their room, I spent an hour soaking in a nice big bubble bath.

Breakfast this morning was the biggest and best buffet breakfast I have ever seen in my life and even though I'm not a breakfast eating person - I ate lots. We got home about 11 this morning and by lunchtime I was having a 'nanna nap' on the lounge. A three hour nanna nap (simply unheard of in my life these days)

Then the absolute perfect end to a beautiful weekend - I got up from my 'nap' and youngest MM had done all of my cleaning, the floors, bathroom, toilet, stacked the dishwasher and also all of the washing and had hung it out. Isn't he just the best child in the world? All done with no prompting or asking.

It is now early evening and pouring with rain and I'm sitting snuggled up on the lounge in front of the heater. Hubby is cooking a nice big pot of spaghetti sauce for tea and I feel totally relaxed. Awesome weekend which was much needed.

Hope you all had a great weekend too.

Cheers, Fi
