Good times good times

We had an awesome weekend!

Because my parents couldn’t take the kids on Friday night the surprise dinner was cancelled. (if they had known about the dinner they would have made a plan but since I didn’t know I couldn’t tell them about it.) Not to worry, Himself cooked and Jellen & Kim came round to our place.  After dinner we sat chatting by the fire for hours. Don’t you just love an open fire?

We met up with them again for lunch on Saturday … Kim had ‘taken’ the day off from work, just to be able to spend the day with me.

Then it was off to the rugby … 

Will Fraser scoring

Heineken Cup, Saracens vs Racing Metro.  Final score 30 -13 to Saracens, yay!   
 It was not the most exciting game of rugby but it’s always great to go and watch the game live Especially since there are so few games here in Belgium. After the game we walked round to the payers exit … I really wanted Himself to introduce me to one of the players. They had been in high school together, plus he is the ex Springbok rugby team captain.

While we were standing around waiting we spotted someone we knew in the VIP area, who arranged for us to get in.  Luckily Kim & Jellen could take the kids over to my parents cause it turned into quite a long meet and greet session.  As of Sunday the kids were telling me what bad parents we cause we just ‘dumped’ them on Jellen & Kim who, in turn, just ‘dumped’ them at my parents.  I think they were more annoyed that they didn’t get to go into the VIP area cause they were going to go sleep over at my parents in any case …. they are so lippy these kids of ours!

After we went out for drinks in town, saw loads more people who I haven’t seen in years.  It was great!  I think we got home some time after 3 (I fell asleep in the car on the way home).

Sunday morning it was up early and go go go. I had to fetch the kids from my parents and then we had a breakfast date with some other friends.

Afterwards we went for a long walk in the forest.   

It was such a lovely day the kids were out playing and riding their bikes till about 7:30 last night.  I was knackered by this time and just wanted to fall into bed.  But by the time I had the kids fed and put to bed and everything ready for this morning I was wide awake…. didn’t get to sleep till about 11:30 so you can imagine how tough it was to get up this morning.

How about you, did you have a great weekend?


  1. sounds so fun!! love that you got a picture too with them.

  2. Sounds like a GREAT weekend for sure!
    I know exactly how you feel - it was such a busy weekend, and I was exhausted, but then got into bed and was wide awake... didn't fall asleep til almost midnight last night. But now I'm so sleepy. Hopefully sleep comes easily tonight!

  3. How fun!! That does sound exhausting though.

  4. That sounds like an awesome rock star weekend! Mine was more like your last weekend. We kind of just relaxed and took advantage of the beautiful weather by being outside as much as we could.

  5. good for you! sounds like a busy happy weekend!
