Another week-end summary

I had a lovely week-end, for the first time in ages I didn't turn my laptop on once. We all went to my ex colleague Ryk's house for drinks on Friday. There were a few of my old work mate's there so it was great to see them again after 3 months. We all had cell hones stuck to our faces half the time though. The red wine and snack were great :)

One Saturday we all went to gym. I haven't been for about a month and it shows! (All I have done is eat, work, eat, socialise, eat, travel and eat! *LOL*). The kids had a quick swim, while I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and 5 minutes on the stair-machine. Pretty pathetic, but at least it was a start... After that we went through to Vicki & Stuart's place to watch the rugby and have a braai. I haven't seen that crowd for ages, so it was nice to be there again. It's an excellent entertaining house, everyone seems to just relax and enjoy and the kids do what they want and nothing gets destroyed.

Vicki as usual produced an excellent meal, and we all ate and drank more than we should have :)

Yesterday we got a gardener in - finally. I have been battling to find someone suitable, as we had some awful ones at the old house. This guy works at the kid's school, and seems to do a great job there. We have been trying to deal with the garden ourselves, but will so little time, and not being very good at it either, the garden was looking a bit shabby. He did a great job of clearing things out and trimming and making things look nice, and I was inspired to do some planting. So I went to the nursery and got a few things and planted them.

We took the kids to see Madagascar afterwards, which was fine (not great but ok). When we got home they rode their bikes around a bit, and then we just lazed around watching TV etc.
