Saturday was cold and rainy and I honestly cannot remember much about the day other than sleeping in and watching movies and possibly eating/drinking more than usual!
Sunday being Fathers day we decided to head out and do something. Bizarrely we ended up seeing Maleficent and I was pretty impressed with the movie. I am not a Jolie fan but have to agree no-one could have played the part better and I really enjoyed it. There is a little Maleficent in us all and the story did provoke some interesting discussion.

to requests for a bikini for summer. (from my hot pants and second skin girl?!)
While at the mall we picked out a new dishwasher (hallelujah!) and I also purchased some new duds from Mr Price Sports and Cotton On. One would be justified in thinking it was Mothers Day all over again. ;-)

and paid with her debit card. Her sibs followed not long after!
On Monday (Youth Day) Russ and I headed out for a long road run. I had to seriously twist his arm as he is a trail junkie of note. I just wanted to get in the zone, not concentrate on every step, which is essential when trail running. He relented and agreed to accompany me and we had such a great run - easy on the whole with a little hill action toward the end. Loved it.
|Slow, unimpressive trudge up Black Hill but I surprised myself and Got It Done.|
We arrived home to find dogs and kids chomping at the bit so loaded the 6 of them up and went for a long beach/wetlands walk.
The afternoon found us huddling in the lounge, fire going and series on the box.
