A Girls Weekend - absolute BLISS....

So what does a girl do on a girls weekend....nothing...

Arrived at Burra Bakehouse 7pm Friday and didn't leave the building till Sunday 12 noon. (other than a small sojourn across the road to ask for a couple of lemons for the Baked Raspberry Cheesecake)

Talking, Eating, Talking, Drinking, Talking, Sleeping, Talking, Solving the problems off the world and our own worlds, Talking and just having fun.  We try and do this once a year - we all have 3 kids, work, have husbands who at times just dont get us and this is our chance to just go blah...have people listen and understand and say nothing or everything back.

I'm so lucky to be able to do this - DH had the kids although 'she who must be obeyed' had 2 sleepovers and a birthday party and the boys had footy and yes I came back to the washing, mess and no dinner but oh well.

Thanks to Nic and Sandra - 12 months had better go quickly.

We were lucky enough to have lunch at La Pecora Nera, great food, cheap prices and lots of food.  
Managed to catch up with good friend Paula who lives nearby for coffee and cake (gelati)

Last night 'She who must be obeyed' reminded me that her class was going to the Loxton Historical Village.  She had given me a notice last term but who knows where that ended (oops found it today at work on my desk) so LOVE the fact that Nay's Place is fully stocked with lots of fabric and manged to whip this up. 
Not bad even if I do say myself - pattern what pattern. 

This weekend mum and I are off to Robyns from Country Harts Inspired Stitches Weekend.   
A weekend with Natalie Bird and Libby Richardson at the Novotel Barossa Valley. 
 Cant wait -
 Mum has never been to a weekend before so I am introducing her to all
 the 'secret womens business

Will post photos this weekend.
