Where were we?

One of the best parts of the job in event management is menu tasting. 

Was at the MCG today with some colleagues picking the menu for an upcoming event.

It's hard work but someone's gotta do it.

Can you guess what we chose?

Spotted this pretty garden as we left the grounds and headed back to the office.

Needed to walk off the generous helpings of the very more-ish menu items we tasted 
- or inhaled with great appreciation.

Starting School 2012

The kids headed back to school today. I mistakenly thought my son was supposed to start yesterday - the real first day of term. My husband went to all the trouble to get him and his lunch and breakie ready. Then he drove right past the school. My son called out: 'Why aren't you stopping Dad?!" He replied: 'Because there's 500 people missing from the school ground!' Back home they went. Today, my son didn't even make it into the school building before he hurt himself by falling and badly skinning his knee. He still went to Little Athletics in the evening, but it would have been sore to run and jump.
