My Little Cowboy

Nicholas has been attending parties every Saturday for the last 3 weeks. The latest party was a cowboy party which he had fun dressing up for. His friend Darcy lives on acreage and has horses so all of the children could have a ride. They played lots of games and seemed to have a good time. The other parties have been at an indoor play centre for children and the local bowling and leisure centre where they played laser tag.
I had a good trip to Sydney. The conference was interesting and I caught up with some old work friends and uni friends from Adelaide. I also caught up with an old school friend, Kate who I haven't seen for 15 years. We had a lovely couple of hours catching up over a couple of champers on Sunday afternoon. I came home very tired so have really just been existing and doing the usual jobs.
We had a good father's day last weekend. We visited the bowling and leisure centre where we all bowled, even Penny. They have a special stand for the small children to push their bowl off. The children then enjoyed a play on the big slide, jumping castle and other equipment.
This weekend has been very quiet. Penny has been very ill with what began as gastro on Friday night (until Sunday morning) and has turned into a temperature and sore throat. She has been very flat and has slept on the couch for most of the day today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for her.
Nick enjoyed his last game of soccer for the year on the weekend and scored a goal and 2 near misses so he was very satisfied and plans on returning to play next year. Poor Penny was mortified to miss her last dancing session for the term and will have to wait 4 weeks before the next term begins. No doubt we'll be putting on our own concerts at home.
Holidays begin at the end of this week which we're all looking forward to. Hooray!!!

Parties, sometimes it almost seems like they are out of control, but then I remember they are only little for such a short time. Glad you had a great time in Sydney.
