Presentation to Alex for his sterling performance as David Beckham.
It's been a while since I updated our blog, but life has been pretty busy.
A few weeks ago, the football season finished (because it's spring/early summer now) and the kids all went to their clubs celebration and prize giving event. They were all very excited, because winning a trophy is almost getting the confirmation that they are champions and the next Wayne Rooney or David Beckham..... and oh how mum wishes that was the case! [:)]
So we attend their prize giving, and what a beautiful day, and officially before the first day of spring. Unfortunately, I was working all day, so didn't get a glimse of the beautiful weather, but some friends of ours had been sunbathing and turned up with a tan!! [:o]
Kids, of course all 'won' a trophy each, and a small prize, which there were all over the moon about.
A couple of week later, it's our 15th Wedding anniversary! OMG, is that a life sentence?!? I think so?!? I've put up with random channel switching and all the usual stuff us women put up with for 15 years, surely I deserve a commandation from the Queen or the Prime
Minister?!? So we did plan a night out. Luckily we found ourselves a nice baby sitter and kids love her, so we called her in and set off to the city of Melbourne for a night out. I booked a nice resturant, in the city on the side of the river Yarra. As we got to the resturant, Stef says "oooh, looks pricey", "yes, I said, but I'm worth it arn't I?". The answer of course was "year dear!" [:)]
We did have a lovely meal, and then decided to spend $100 in the casino next door. After a few glasses of wine, I was feeling quite merry and unbeatable, so we visited the roulette tables. We changed our money and made a few guesses. Luckily we won some back, hurray!!
Had a couple more goes and we won again, our luck was in! Anyway, Stef says it's time to go, baby-sitter turns into a pumpkin after 12:30pm, so we decide on our last bet, lucky black 8. We had a few other punters join the table and some had realised just how lucky I was, and copied my bets. The guy spun the wheel and we waited.
Went bowling after the presentation to celebrate.
"Oh, I said we didn't win, let's go", but Stef won't go, seems to think we won. Naww.... I can't see that we have, but then the guy behind the table, say's "oh you won big". Hurray, black 8 won, and we collected over $250, plus our original $100!
We're very happy, money for nothing and Stef is happy, it's like he never paid for the posh meal at the resturant!
Next day we decide to spend our winnings on a new Aussie BBQ, so we try it out and have a great time. Stef, beer in hand, like a native, enjoys cooking the sausages and the burgers. Cool. Looking forward to our first full Aussie summer, full of Barbies and not having to worry about putting a brolly up, because it's forecast for rain!
Check out the pictures!
Luv Claire, Stef & the boys.
