A weekend to remember

As far as Australia Day long weekends go, this one was the best!

On Friday morning we made our way down to have Australia Day breakfast in the park. I love the eggs cooked in toast and the bacon. It just tastes so bloody good, surrounded by our friends and other community members.

Around lunch time I jumped on a bus at the Sommery (local pub) with a heap of other cool humans to attend the Red Hot Summer Tour concert, at the old gaol in Mount Gambier. It was awesome. I had the BEST day! 

The line up was amazing and I had a glorious time, reliving my youth. The portaloos were a disgusting mess by the end of the day though, can I just say.

Moving Pictures, Screaming Jets, Chocolate Starfish, Baby Animals, The Angels and Suzi Quattro. They were ALL fantastic performers, I hadn't seen any of them before. I am totally signing up for next year, I hope the showmenship is as awesome.

Saturday we hung out at the beach until the sun went down. Another fantastic day with our neighbours, this is becoming somewhat of a tradition, and I like it!

Sunday we were all relaxed with a quiet day at home with the aircon, before school begins for the year, and I go back to work at the gymnastics club for Term 1.

How did your long weekend go?
Tell me. What bands take you back to another time?


  1. What a line-up! Sounds like you had a fantastic Australia Day! :)

  2. What a great post and you have had a marvellous weekend by the sounds of this. How good is it that you had some FUN without the kids too. Today is the first week for ShareYourSnaps...for a mostly photos post over at my blog...and YOU have certainly captured memories in both pics and words. I hope back to school and your teaching goes very well! This is YOUR year!! Love, Denyse xx

    1. Loved my day out, with my sister and friends at the bands. It was a chance to have FUN and not be responsible for anyone but me. I had a ball :) I have linked up, later in the day after my busy day at work and then grocery shopping :)

    2. Thank you!
      Fun for mums is too scarce in my opinion. Keep on keeping on!

      Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 5/52. Next week's optional prompt is "Starting School Memories".

  3. Hi, I saw your link from Denyse's site and just added my post to your link up. Great beach pictures! Glad you had a terrific weekend.

  4. This looks and sounds amazing! It is so hot here today and I am drooling at those beach shots!

  5. Sounds a lovely and relaxing weekend! Thanks for sharing!


  6. Gorgeous photos and such an awesome weekend! My long weekend was good but ended a bit blah as I fell sick and turns out I have the flu. But before that, it was filled with socialising.

  7. Looks like you and the family had a great time. Thanks for sharing the photos - made your weekend come alive.

  8. We both had a great weekend !! Love your blog!!

  9. This sounds like a great weekend! Excellent photos, too!!

  10. I love this, what a day! And like someone said above, what a line up.

  11. We sat in that exact spot on the beach on Australia Day! It's a great little beach for kids to swim safely. It got a bit hot on the weekend though!


Thanks for so much visiting, and even more so for leaving a friendly comment!
