My plans for the weekend alone with the kids are starting to take shape. Here's the rough itinerary--
  • Friday morning farewell E. Drop Little e at preschool, then go to the library for a while with Little i.  Maybe go to a cafe and Vinnies too. Home for lunch and Little i's rest.
  • 3pm, pick up Little e from preschool, go to a fish shop and buy a whole fish. Take Buddy for a walk. Go home, and get kids to help me make fish and chips. Movie night with chocolate custard.
  • Put kids to bed. Ahhh. Watch football. Have a cup of tea and smoke a cigar. watch a kung fu dvd in bed. 
  • Saturday morning. Eggs for brekky, and a slowish morning. Late morning drive down to Symbio Wildlife Park. Home in the arvo, make something for dinner, kids to bed etc. Tea. Cigar. DVD in bed.
  • Sunday morning, church. Then go to some friends' house for lunch. Home in arvo, play in the yard, do some gardening. Late afternoon, welcome E home. Phew.
ps-I reckon about four minutes of the three days will be as peaceful as in that photo..

Such a beautiful photo! I left my husband and son to themselves last weekend and they had a blast; praying the same for you and the girls/dog this weekend. :o)

I'm hoping the cigar bit is untrue. Have fun. :-)

I totally thought you meant to buy a pet fish and then subsequently make fish and chips for dinner. Sounded potentially traumatic, but now I see it's all one and the same dead fish. Excellent.
