Daddy has gone to NZ


My husband has headed off to Wellington today to see a game of Rugby tomorrow night that his beloved Wallabies are not even playing in. Yes, that is right. He and his mates booked a weekend away in NZ and bought tickets ($400 each mind you) for a game the the Wallabies failed to qualify for. Then there is the $900 flight, $700 in accommodation. Plus spending money. All for 2 nights away in the windy city.The Wallabies are however now playing the following day. However my husband will already be on the plane back home when they start playing.

If I said I was annoyed it really would be an understatement. I just need to plan my 'compensation' (I think he is up to 4 boys weekends away in the past 3 years, to my ZERO girls weekends away). I can't decide if I should take off and leave him with the kids for a week/end. Or buy myself something significant (think Kitchenaid). All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I love the mary poppins photo reading the menu thats priceless. and love the hungry caterpillar cushions my sons would love those.

Weekend away Belinda!!
I have to say the two nights that I spend twice a year at Sewjourn with lovely crafty friends indulging in uninterrupted sewing see me return home refreshed and reinvigorated in my role as mum/wife/director of home duties!
