My eldest sister flew down from Karratha to Perth on Thursday afternoon so we made our way straight to our parents’ home as we knew that’s where Claire, the missing sister in our trio, was there.
I asked Claire to help me with lifting something heavy from the boot of my car – as I opened the door, Tan jumped out!! Was such a fabulous surprise.
Let the fun begin!
We had our first summer BBQ that night with Mum, Dad, Tan, Claire & Rob too. Friday rolled around and the three of us headed to the shops to find outfits for the big hens day on Saturday. We caught up with one of our cousins, two aunties, our Dad’s cousin and his wife all for lunch then the shopping began.
My shopping efforts were very successful, a gorgeous ruffle trimmed Kookai top, beaded flats (for the ol’ pregnant one) and coral coloured drop earrings. We finished the arvo off with pedicures.
I returned home and proceeded to finish off a few crafty things for the hens day, we ordered Thai and had a relaxing night.
Hens day fun!
We all got ready together at Mum and Dads and at 12:45 us, along with Claire’s bridesmaids and her two soon to be sister-in-law’s piled on into the fabulous limo ready for an afternoon of champagne. We spent the afternoon at the Leftbank in Fremantle overlooking the water. We played a few games and everyone got merry.
I retired at 6:30 and the girls partied on. Unfortunately the partying didn’t quite go to plan as many drinks had been shared and most venues wouldn’t allow a group of girls on a hens night out into their venue.
I came home to my hubby and we watched ‘Bad Teacher’.
I woke up with the worst headache on Sunday … pregnancy headaches are as bad as hangover headaches. We went and got take away coffee and muffins and came home and lazed about before I headed to my parents place. My sister-in-law and my two nephews came over in the afternoon and we had scones with jam & cream. My Dad has been on a baking frenzy of late – the latest recipe to master is his Mum’s scones. Every Saturday afternoon he makes a chocolate oat slice, muffins and now scones have been added to the list. It is very cute and I think it reminds him so much of his childhood which is why he loves doing it so much.

All in all – it was a fabulous weekend, I must admit, I am glad the hens has passed and I can take some time to relax. I have started washing all of bubs clothes today and have half cleaned the house, grocery shopping and the rest of the cleaning will be ticked off by the end of the day!
