Long weekend-ing (last one for the year!)

I’ve just realised it’s been a while since I last posted here! Life has been quite busy and time just seems to be slipping away. Anyhow, we’ve just had the last long weekend for the year here in Sydney and it heralds the start of the warm season.

Pokemon craze

I grew up when Pokémon was all the craze and like everything else it disappeared only to be brought back by the game that was Pokémon Go. My kids are too young to understand that game but they do love collecting the actual cards and making up their own game. Even on occasion they might swap cards – only to ask for them back a few hours later (cue arguments and tears when that doesn’t happen). Continue reading
