Friday night. This picture captures a moment in time. Gail, ever confident and with a super-healthy self esteem, is relaxed and confident in Team B's ability to smash Team G.
Mr G meanwhile, has a secret weapon - a Magic Magnetic bracelet, said to give extra balance and strength to the wearer, loaned to him by Jean-Claude, Lyns' hubby.
See the mirth on Jean-Claude's face as Mr G scores a STRIKE with his first bracelet-ball??
The occasion? A night out with friends, bowling. All of us commenting how this made us feel like we were back in youth group, as we left our kids behind and revisited our teenage daze.
There is some debate over an overall winner...
Round One of bowling was standard competitive, bowl-your-best. Then some bright spark decided to make it more tricky. So for Round Two we all had to bowl from the beginning of the run-up; bowl left-handed; bowl backwards through our legs; bowl using the kiddy frame; and bowl standing on one leg with a hand on our head. It made for some interesting scores. Tee Hee.
Saturday: Look at our Boy. His daddy and me look at this photo and can't get over how grown up he is. Not a little boy any more.
Another phenomenal game this Saturday. Makes the getting-up-early so worth it.
A scorching 14-0 scoreline. Dash scored three goals. We call that a "hattrick" in soccer-speak.
Here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on for the Toy Story party.
With Miss' Fab's artistic help, we have been making Andy's Western cowboy town, from brown boxes, as seen in Toy Story 1.
This is "Als Feed Barn" (get it???).
We also made a Store, a Hotel (Saloon) and the Jail. The Hotel has a real verandah. The Feed barn is big enough for Scrag to climb inside.
Sunday: It was School Gala Day today; we turned up after church.
Scrag freaked out cos he saw Ronald McDonald wandering around. He hates clowns.
Started screaming, "I want to go hooooome!" so we left early, leaving the kids with neighbours.
Why do people think kids like clowns??
I was hoping to score an old check shirt for Woody (alias Mr G) at the White Elephant stall, but got there way too late when there was only dregs left. However I did manage to score this...
Better go and make the car-lover a jam sandwich.
Hope your weekend has been good too.
