Weekend Snaps


Hope everyone has enjoyed a lovely weekend. We had my sister's housewarming party on Saturday at lunchtime and thankfully it was a nice sunny winter's day so we could all sit outside. You can see her gift I wrapped above. I used one of the Marley & Lockyer clay gift tags I won in Lesley's giveaway over at Life At Number 10 to decorate the package.

Yesterday, we had a huge list of jobs to do around our house (most of which we accomplished) but we did manage time for a nice morning walk down by the river. You can see the Perth city skyline in the background of the photos below.

How did you spend your weekend?

  9. Hi Amanda. Your roses looks so lovely. It looks like you had perfect weather for the weekend.
    My hubby was away for the weekend so I spent half my time running my 16yo here, there and everywhere. The other half was spent having fun with my girls.

  10. What a lovely weekend you have had..a rare thing to see the sunshine at this time of year so clear. Love the photos...Its all rain here in SA and supposed to be until Friday. I did a small project at home, and had a night out on Saturday. The weather will give me some opportunities to do some painting. Have a lovely week.

  15. It looks so lovely and sunny there Amanda, I hope you enjoyed your weekend, it sounds like a good mix of enjoying life and getting chores done, which i always find satisfying! I bet you are loving your new heater! My weekend involved two nights drinking and one dinner with my rather difficult dad, so I feel I need a big sleep now : ) but really it was quite fun!
