Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Four

Friday night and the lights are loooooooooow...
On Friday night we went to see Mamma Mia (a reward for me losing 5 kilograms!!). Before the show I elected to go to Mrs Parma's. This was probably not the best idea, and I probably put back on some of the 5 kilograms. We'll find that out on Wednesday. In any case, it was (as always) wonderful.
This is my meal, the Chicken Bolognaise Parma. (With bacon, yum!)

Restaurants like Mrs Parma's are one of the things I miss the most about not living in the city anymore. I also miss our Thai and Indian places, but what we don't have in fast food we more than make up with in clean air and no traffic! I HATE traffic. I find it hard to believe that I used to sit in traffic for almost an hour to get to work and I travelled about 10 kilometres. Now i travel further (60km-ish) but it only takes me 45 minutes!

After dinner it was time for the show! I loved it, even from the cheap seats. Chyken claims he didn't like it (although he concedes that the band were great!), but he was clearly DANCING at the end, so I think he is lying!

On Saturday we ventured out in to the southeast of Melbourne, past the Chicken and her big yellow Chip, to visit Thea.

Now, I MEANT to get a photo of Thea, but I totally forgot. I did get one of the food though. It was incredibly nommy. Except for the olives, they were yuck.

After seeing Thea we popped in to see some other friends, and then headed for one of my favourite places - The Drive In!

We saw 'Robin Hood' (it was great, and although Russell is nowhere near as hot as he was in 'Brides of Christ' he's still gorgeous! Cate was, as always, wonderful!) Then we saw an Australian movie called 'I Love You Too'. It was better than I thought it was going to be. It's no 'Muriel's Wedding', but it was enjoyable enough. Chyken automatically liked it cos it contained a dwarf!

Sunday I spent at home alone 'cos Chyken is off doing some school concert thingo. I have done some washing and been to the supermaket. Enthralling stuff, and totally not photo-worthy.

Bits Of My Weekend is a concept stolen from Michelle. When you're finished here, you should go to her blog and see what the rest of the world did on the weekend. (Be patient, she is in the USA and her weekend isn't usually finished when I post my Bits!) Then you should come back here and leave a link to a post containing bits of YOUR weekend!


  1. Last year I went to see Mamma Mia with my 65 year old father in law and one of his navy buddies (and his wife). Imagine my surprise when at the end they were singing to all of the songs, perfectly pitched and all words correct! Apparently the Canadian Navy really got into ABBA a few decades ago. Glad your husband was dancing too!

  2. Love, love love Mamma Mia!
    What a great weekend!

  3. I loved Mamma Mia, the movie--haven't seen the stage show. Love that music--takes me back...

    Fun to see what you're up to on the other side of the world!

  4. So, were the olives "yuck" because they were a bad batch, or are you not a fan of them?

    Chyken's response to "Mama Mia" sounds like my response to "Iron Man 2". I went reluctantly with my husband and two friends, I didn't like the main character At All, but I found myself drawn in by the action.

  5. I don't like olives. These ones were apparently nice, marinated in balsamic vinegar.

  6. Mamma Mia is so much fun! LUV it.
