Bits of My Weekend - Volume Two

Friday night on my way home from work I saw this:

You can't see it? Here's a zoomier picture...

Now, as I live in rural Australia, I see kangaroos all the time, so that is nothing new, but this paddock normally has alpacas in it, so it was a bit odd to see another type of animal there.

I arrived home to a present from Chyken for no reason.

Stamps! I love stamping! Perhaps I worked in a bank in my past life or something, anyway, these are great, not that I really have any cause to use them. I did stamp 'Good Work' on my Mum's hand after she cooked Roast Lamb on Saturday night though. On Friday night I also came upon a catalogue containing such treasures as these:

If you were wondering what to get me for my birthday, wonder no more!!!

On Saturday I got up early and went to the pool for some water aerobics (my new favourite thing!!!) I do not feel that there needs to be a photo of this, but I promise it did happen!
After that I came home and did some serious couching with Chyken. I finally watched Avatar (yes, for the FIRST time!). It was OK. Can't see what all the fuss was about, but perhaps that's cos I didn't see it in 3D and/or IMAX. We got off the couch briefly for the aforementioned Roast Lamb, and then it was back there for 'The Ugly Truth'.

On Sunday I went to watch my nephews play footy. Jack is number 10 and Will is 17. Jack's team thrashed the opposition, and Will's got thrashed by the opposition.

That's Will in the yellow and black, about to take a mark.

We then had a massive late BBQ lunch. Here is a delightful picture of my favourite niece called Emily. She is having an operation to remove lots of teeth tomorrow, so I thought I would take a photo for comparision later. We then hopped in the spa for a couple of relaxing hours and then come home for an early night.

Here's a bonus picture of Chyken, just cos he's wonderful and showed me enough html so that I could stop swearing at the PC and move the photos around a bit.

Pop on over to Six in the City to see how others spent their weekends and then please come back here and tell me how you spent YOUR weekend.


  1. Jo, this was fun to read. Water aerobics? Now, that's something I've never considered trying!

    How amazing that you saw a kangaroo where alpacas normally roam. I'd love to see one of those in the wild. We're currently in Africa, so we've been blessed to observe some fascinating wildlife. No kangaroos, though.

    Have a great week!

  2. What a fun weekend!!
    It is just amazing that you see animals like that!

  3. Seem like lots of "bit of my weekend" folks had BBQ this weekend. Now I am craving it as well!
