Da weekend recap

So, in all my 'bullshit day from hell mind space' yesterday I totally forgot to say that I'd had a fabulouso weekendos!

My Dad was in town for his new job and stayed over on the Friday night... had a few (too) many beers, then cracked the wine open - as you do when my Dad is in town.  Was super kickarse to see him - hope next time Mum will make the trek up with him.

Sat morn, headed of to the Bellingen markets (hungover as a dog - I'm not sure where that saying came from because I've not really ever seen a dog with a hangover, but hey).  Turned into the human food vacuum.  Did some shopping in Coffs, took the dog down the beach, had a swim and picked up a couple of DVD's.  One decent, one shithouse (always a dead cert if I do the picking - well, actually they are usually both utter shite).

Sunday, we went for another long walk and swim, then Micko and I took the kayaks out for a couple of hours.  Haven't done it in a while... but I really need to remind myself that it's not that hard to chuck them in the back of the ute - it's totally worth it!  It's so relaxing, floating around, stopping for a dip whenever you feel like it.  Reminds me how fucking lucky I am to live in this stunning part of the world!  

Told you it was stunning!  

Next time, I'm soooooo taking my camera with me so I can show you bitches just how lucky I am - perhaps a few might get jealous enough to book a flight and come drink frozen margaritas while sucking down some of the worlds best oysters (if that's indeed your thing - if so, I'm sure I've got one of the magic bullets I can disinfect and you can use on your nether region when the oysters kick in).

In the arvo (afternoon, that is Surferwife) Aunty Flo arrived (as you know from yesterday's post).  I parked my lard arse on the couch and watched 'Whip It' while eating chocolate non.stop!  I had a cookies and cream Kit Kat, almost a bag of milky bars, some Cadbury rip off mint Aero and then almost a bag of Cheese and Bacon Balls.  Ewwwwww!  Why???  WHYYYYY?

By the way... Whip It kind of sucked dogs balls.  I love Drew - she is totally my 'free pass celebrity' (you know, the cheating that is not cheating cause they are famous rule).  I just think this movie was slow and fucked - might have been my state of mind.

Tuesday morning... time to go box out my frustration!  Later bitches!

Damn, what a damned fine part of the world you live in. Glad to know that someone else sucks at choosing DVDs, I'm always whining to my husband "But it got really good reviews..."

Love Drew too - managed to finally catch her in Grey Gardens the other day and in one scene she was wearing this spectacular 1930s swimsuit... divine!

Beautiful pics. I was lucky enough to visit Australia 7 years ago. I hope I can get back there some day. But it was probably a once in a life time trip.

And I TOTALLY agree about Whip It. It was lame. I wanted to stop the DVD after the first half hour but D insisted on giving it a chance.

Smart Ass Sara said...

I'm appropriately jealous right now. :)

Little Ms J said...

I want to come visit, sit on my "arse" and drink margaritas at the beach!

jprp said...

aww, you always make me so jealous when you show photos of the 'buccs! but then i know, if i'd post some pics of say Five ways, The Dorset, Collins place, kilsyth Coles, Pembroke Senior Campus, that kinda eastern suburbs awesomeness, you'd be green with envy!!!

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

Alicia said...

Jacinta said...

Now, if my part of the world wasn't my favourite, then I would consider your part of the world my favourite - does that make sense?

I am originally from New England Tablelands so your neck of the woods makes me a bit homesick :)

Cheese and bacon balls?! Omg that sounds so gross and delicious at the same time! Ha!!!

I would love to live in your neck of the world. Looks absolutely amazing. Your weekendos are like mini vacays every time!

Happy tuesday!

Amy said...

If you didn't have so many Creepy crawlies and other creatures that could totally kill you, I would move there in a heartbeat.

Those pictures are stunning!

Enjoy that chocolate and feel better soon.

Kristin said...

I'm pretty sure I could out food vacuum you! Sounds like a fab weekend lady.

Elizabeth Patch said...

drollgirl said...

it is so gorgeous there! LUCKY YOU!

and whip it kind of looks like it would be lame. i am sure a real roller derby would be a whole lot more exciting!

aladdinsane12 said...

is it wrong that when you were listing all of your pig-out food, i was like "shit, i want all of that right now!" ??

and, by the way, i might just have to strangle you to death because when i look out my window, i see 2 feet of snow and when you look out yours, you see THAT. sunshine, water, beaches. kill me now.

Tracie said...

Those pictures are gorgeous! I love margaritas and oysters, too.

PS I'm glad you told us that Whip It sucked. I had it in our Netflix queue.
