After our busy furniture rearranging day yesterday we took it easy this morning and ended up having breakfast at about 11am. Dave and I went and did the grocery shopping while Adam, Tom and Caitlin baked choc chip cookies and brownies. Then after lunch (which we ate at 3:30pm) we put the Anglo Saxon style leg of lamb in the oven to slow cook and headed over to my Mum’s place for a walk.
My Aunty Liz and Uncle Rob and my Dad had been at Mum’s for lunch so altogether there were 10 of us (if you count the dog) wandering the neighbourhood.
Here’s what we’d come off-road to see. It’s the pig face tree. One of my kids named it that years ago, I think it was David.
There’s been a few bushfires through here over the years, my Mum was talking this afternoon about being involved with a community fire group – apparently you need to either have a swimming pool yourself to do so, or a neighbour with a pool, that can be used as a water source if/when the mains pressure drops off during a bushfire. I gather the next door neighbour is being co-opted into that role.
Wearing matching jackets and earrings (though you can’t really see Liz’s earrings). I guess it’s a twin thing.
The kids and dog beat us back to Mum’s by long enough for Dave to be engrossed in his game by the time we caught up.
With the bed I slept in. And the doona cover I slept under. Almost 19 years later and nothing has changed! The bed is now used by grandchildren sleeping over. When David was little and we were first leaving him with my Mum for the night he was quite taken with sleeping in my bed.
For more fabulous Sundays in my City posts head on over to Unknown Mami’s place see what everyone else has on show.
P.S. No decluttering pics today, I gave myself the day off.
