A windy weekend....

The winds were wild in Sydney over the weekend. 
So when we heard about the Festival of the Winds at Bondi on Sunday, we thought it was the perfect place to see some kites in action and make the most of the weather. 

We arrived at the beach and found a parking spot fairly easily which is a rarity in Bondi on the weekend and walked down to the beach. It was a little crowded but not unbearable. 

We loved seeing the big kites against the blue sky but our favourite part was the people that had brought their own kites down to fly. It was so much fun watching parents teach their kids how to launch the kites in the wind, strings getting tangled, kites falling onto people. Lots of laughs! Everyone was having such a great time. Sometimes it really is the simple things.

We bought the boys their own "world's smallest kites" from a stall at the beach so they can fly them in our backyard. We'll make the most of this windy weather whilst it's here.

I've popped up some photos from our day below -

Father's Day 2019

The boys kicked off the Father's Day celebrations with a breakfast at school on Thursday.  Crosissants and apple juice for everyone!

Sunday was a little sleep in for Simon then presents in bed. Home made cards, Father's Day stall gifts, his favourite beer, pj's and socks + undies.

The papers, coffee and more croissants followed then a chilled day at home watching the football, building lego and pottering around. 

Later that afternoon we headed over to Simon's parents house for a delicious dinner and to catch up on all of their news after their month in London.  I baked my first cheesecake in years for dessert and think I need more practice...   It tasted ok but looked a little flat! 

Also a Happy Father's Day to my dad who had to work but we'll catch up soon xx

Happy Father's Day to all the dads! How was your weekend?

Father's Day Gift Ideas...

It's Father's Day on Sunday and I thought I'd put a few ideas together for some gifts for dad.

The boy's usually pick something up from the Father's Day stall at school but it's nice to add something else that Simon might like. Most of the time gifts for dad tend to veer towards the practical side e.g. tie, socks and undies but I also like to add breakfast in bed with the papers and maybe a voucher for an experience they can use later on. 

Cast iron cookware - Salt and Pepper

Aftershave - Beard & Blade

Beer and Cheese Board - Endeavour Tap Rooms

Surfing Cufflinks - Dad Shop

Tie - Tarocash

Waffles for Father's Day breakfast

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Hope you have a great day!
