point + shoot {weekend la la}

On Saturday morning we made the trip to Bunnings and I spotted these Jiffy pots. I used to love these when I was a kid, so we grabbed some and tried our hand at planting a few tomato seeds. Just place them in a waterproof container, add warm water and watch the pot grow, all ready to plant the seeds! A zero mess activity, quick but fun.

In Bunnings, I was the mum holding the hand of a sobbing four year old and carrying a screaming two year old. They were both so crazy that they were not able to calm down to play in the play equipment for quite some time. Don't you just love a public tantrum?!

It ended well, with a sausage sizzle all round. We followed it up with a call to RACQ, hoping for a flat battery as our best case scenario. Phew - it was the battery. I squeezed in a Pump class at the gym. Some home improvement, some culling. I said goodbye to lots of memories from about 18 years ago, my old high school jumper and my Pony Club memorablia. And a few pairs of old shoes! I snipped, folded and sorted party printables. Went to bed late. Headed out to play with the kids then my lovely man allowed me to have a nap with O while he escorted M to a birthday party. More culling, lots of folding (washing!). Sorting through the kids clothes, getting ready for summer. A quiet weekend. The end.

How was your weekend? Hope it was a good one!

Joining in with Point + Shoot over here.

your photos keep getting better and better Blythe! I love the way your capture your kids. It truly has been a pleasure for me to watch them grow. All the way back when Miss M was sporting (and looking so cute!) her black bonds T's and you getting some ribbing from that Mothers group about babies wearing black..... phew, it has been a while!

what processing are you doing on your photos?

i plan on doing my get-ready-for-summer wardrobe cull these school holidays too x

Got to love a weekend trip to Bunnings, if only I was young enough to play on the swings still! I've never seen those little pod things before I hope they grow for you :)

Bunnings sausage sizzles are AWESOME. I look forward to seeing the seedlings grow. My weekend here was hectic but very happy. One week to school holidays. Yippee!

Thanks for your comments! And Peta, thank you. Such a sweet thing to say... YOu've read for a long time!Most of my photos these days have a tiny bit of exposure tweaked in Picnik but nothing else, I don't have time or patience for Photoshop at the moment!
