Window to my Weekend

Well, what a cool weekend.

Saturday started with a bit of a sleep in, until rudely awoken by Sarge barking at our neighbour who was spraying along our fenceline!  (Thanks a heap Sargey!)  The family just kicked back .... the weather was lovely enough to finish off the ever increasing washing pile, (got it all dried too!).  It was a really nice bit of cruisey time just to hang out with the kids and play, and just "be".
Blimmen nuisance!!

Hubby got all the lawns and even the neighbours strip of lawn nicely mowed and looking great, and before we knew it, it was time to get the car loaded up with our band gear ready for the nights gig.
Our Stage all set and ready for action!!!



Saturday nights gig was FAN-TAS-TIC!  We were hired by another popular local band called "Tempist Fujit" to play at their sons 21st birthday, as they wanted to enjoy the night without having to be the entertainment.  We know these guys well, and I have worked with them before, so we were looking forward to getting out there and playing bayyybe!!  The theme was GREEN...since it was St Patricks day afterall!  Matt (guitarist) wore some of my green fairy wings and some tinsel...... Kyle (bassist) had a green tinsel wig and some  strategically placed bits of green tinsel and some green facepaint.... and Fraser decorated his drums with some green tinsel.  I had a lime green hooded cape, and some green accessories too, so we joined in with the spirit of the night!
The crowd were AWESOME... they danced from the word go.  They screamed and they yelled for more, and we had a really enjoyable gig out in a huge Marquee, with a whole lot of crazy party animals!

<<< Matt took this HIDEOUS picture of me... I was trying to pull some Elvis facial...with pouted lip etc... but it just looks like I'm a bit drunk and ferocious!  (no alcohol passed these lips.... AND I was actually not at all angry..... lol).

 Fun Fun Fun


So, got home around 3am, cold, tired and with some aches........but a lovely hot shower (yeah, at 3am) was just perfect before crawling into bed and getting some zzzzzzz's!

This morning I got up a bit too late to head off to church, so we slothed it.  We ate delicious left-over Pizza for breakfast  (how disgustingly unhealthy is that??)  heehee.  And we hung out together.. Warren, the kids and me.   Just how I LOVE it! <3

Kendyl and I decided to do some baking for school lunches (and to pig out on!).  So it was a Banana cake and some gingernut biscuits on the cooking list (their request...not really mine!).   My little junior masterchef loves to TASTE help me cook!  She also loves to don the apron and "chef hat" to do so!

While we were cooking, Hubby got down his OLD OLD toy train set, that he got when he was a boy of about 9............. ('s an ANTIQUE!!)  hahaha.. I love teasing him about how old and grungey his train set is...because he loves it so much...  Funnily enough Asher also loves getting it out and playing with it....  (boy thing obviously).


The egg on the right are size 7 eggs and the big fat rounded looking mama is what our Hyline chookies are laying ... it's their very first lay ever, but all 4 of them are pushing out these HUGE mamas!!!  Man, no wonder they make such a noise when they lay!! LOL.

While Warren was up in his closet....he also found his (very scary looking  cute) OLD stuffed toy....... Ellie the Elephant (she has measles painted on her from when Warren had them also!!!) .... Funnily enough, Kendyl LOVES Ellie....   (I think she looks like she has "mad elephant disease" to be honest)... SPOOKY.

So... that's what's been going on at the Bassett residence this weekend.
What fun did you guys get up to .......anything really exciting?


PS: Don't know what's happening with the random placement of the photos...sorry bout that... will try and sort it tomorrow...Imoff to bed it's after 3am again!!! arrgh!
