The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

Gordon St Gasbagging

Still in "school holidays" so it was a fairly quiet one last week. Cheryl and I did make the most of nearby babysitters and go out to lunch with just the two of us for the first time in a very long time. We went to El Beso on View St - it's a nice little cafe, and the food was delicious.

As Lisa mentioned, we also went out for dinner with them  to The Dumpling House on Friday. It's Oscar's favourite restaurant, even though he does call it "the sushi place" (they don't serve sushi). We copied our first time there and got chicken and prawn dumplings, bbq pork buns, fried wontons, shallot pancakes, and honey chicken. Oh, and plenty of rice for Lil to spread all over her face, in her clothes, and on the floor.  Really nice to head out with the Roberts/French clan.

Sunday we checked out the showgrounds market (I bought a few books, don't tell Mum ;)) and then relaxed at home. Os and Cheryl went to the park with Rach and Shaun and played badminton, but I was holding a sleeping baby so I read one of the aforementioned (shhh) books. Ender's Game. Good!

Then we went to Edith and Landon's place for dinner. We apparently didn't eat enough, because we're going there again tonight for leftovers ;)

So yeah, a quiet week, and we're expecting another quiet one this week. This weekend, though, I'm off to Supanova! I'm pretty excited :)

And that's us :)


  1. Don't forget, we changed the car rego over so Lemony is now officially a Victorian ;)

  2. Just testing on Clive's behalf. tonight I'm quietly home alone and he has gone to a meeting.
