School Hols - simple pleasures & One Direction

School holidays are the best! After a busy term 1 at school we all needed a holiday and we are loving it; almost at the end of week 1! Sleeping in, long pyjama mornings and having no usual sporting commitments. No racing around from A to B and C to D.

Apart from the 3 generations boys camping trip over Easter we are not going away. Living in Sydney there is always something to do so we are very lucky. Being a 'tourist in your own city' is always great for the kids or doing simple things like going to the park or the oval for some kicking practice. At the park there's a big swing which I can fit on with the boys. Thank you Council for the big swing, it's pretty cool; not a care in the world when we're on it. I get really dizzy when they spin me around too fast though; call me boring or too old but I just like to go back and forth. Going green is not fun.

Yesterday we went with Grandma to the Fish Markets. Once the boys got over the initial smell they enjoyed looking at all the fish, crabs, octopus, lobsters and boats. It's foodie heaven at the fish markets; the cheeses, olives and condiments and a fabulous fruit shop. We also shared a big platter of seafood while we were there - so good! My eldest son is a Jamie Oliver in the making so he loved it, especially looking at all the cheeses and herbs etc.

With the corporate working day almost over my two eldest went into the city to meet up with hub. I dropped them there straight from the fish markets. They got more then they bargained for. With walking a block to their Dads work, they were surprised to get caught up with 100s of girls screaming for One Direction outside The Intercontinental. When the boys got home they said it was an adrenaline rush. So cute!! They are not huge One Direction fans but I think they loved experiencing the hype and the atmosphere and seeing so many girls their age on mass! An experience like that is great - doesn't cost a cent; it just presents itself and you enjoy it for what it's worth!! They secretly loved every minute of it.


These boys can draw a crowd of screaming girls

Big enough to care for another Dare!

Flicking through a Grazia magazine teamed with a glass of wine. Sunday evening's a rare occasion...home alone... - my hub and 3 boys have gone away on a 3 generations boys camping trip. May I add the house is so quiet without them!

My brother, his wife and their 1 & 2 year old were visiting for the weekend at Mums. Combining catching up with them and having a little 'me' time the weekend has been rather full in a lovely way.

This week has involved partaking in another style dare! #armpartydare it's been heaps of fun and lots of others have joined in too sharing their arm party jingles. There is an endless array of amazing arm jewellery out on the streets and it was great to see it all in Andrea's latest dare.

So many great bracelets and bangles, needed to be exposed! There are no rules as to how many, there is no right or wrong and sometimes it's a case of 'the more, the merrier!'

Hope the Easter break has treated you well. Here are some photos of the week that was.
