Weekly Recap

Well it’s been a busy last week of the three-week school holiday Wee Man was lucky enough to enjoy and we made the most of the last few days.

I had to get my car fixed on Monday to pass it’s roadworthy here in Canberra which ended up taking a day longer than planned so we did lots of walking being car-less and just pottered around at the shops and at home.


On Wednesday we visited Questacon which was fantastic fun and we loved all the interactive displays and demonstrations.  Wee Man was particularly impressed with the earthquake simulator.

Later that afternoon we had a big bake fest where we cooked up some homemade pinwheels and sausage rolls, stocking the freezer ready for school lunches and snacks.


Thursday was a bit of fun with a drive to Westfield Belconnen to take a Sushi Master Class for the school holidays thanks to Sushi Sushi.  Wee Man loves sushi and will always chose it as lunch if we are out at the shops. It was a fun hands on activity for kids and William was happy with his own-made inari and cucumber handroll.


Wee Man also had hishair cut at the trendiest of barber’s shops: Big Barber                         A fresh new look for his new school, he looks like a different kid now.


We met up with Bob for lunch at Grill’d which was yum, although their vegan burger still tastes just like a processed patty, I see no improvement from their previous, which is super disappointing.


Wee Man and I then headed off to the movie to see the new Goosebumps Movie which was excellent, we both enjoyed it and it provided some good laughs.


On our last Friday of the holidays we headed to the National Museum of Australia for some history and also to see the new exhibit – Rome. I highly recommend seeing the Rome exhibit as it is very beautiful and so amazing how we can see these items and not have to just see imagery on television or in books.


Saturday was a bit of fun, we thought we would check out the Finnish Crazy Games at the Finnish Embassy, a little disappointing as there didn’t seem to be much happening BUT we did get to see Wife Carrying racing which was just hilarious and so entertaining.


Sunday was a chilled day, with breakfast at Frankies and then we did some shopping for some extra shelving for the boys’ rooms and I did a little bit more back to school baking.

Have a Happy new week!

Thanks for reading.
