Big Weekend

We had a huge weekend - I'm exhausted but it's been great.  Thursday was eisteddfod cooking; Friday I spent about 5 hours at the hall helping to set up for troupe weekend then came home and started preparing for the engagement bbq.  All Friday the wind howled and we were a bit concerned that we wouldn't be able to cook outside on Saturday.  Was still very windy on Saturday but not too bad - John rigged up some windbreaks and managed to cook.  We had a houseful on Saturday for lunch and it was so lovely.  We've spent a fair bit of time with Matt's family over the (9) years and it's even better to see them to celebrate such a happy event.

Sunday was spent at the eisteddfod cooking, cooking, cooking - I don't want to see or smell bacon and eggs or chicken schnitzel for quite a while.  Was there for over 12 hours but I love troupe weekend.

This morning I walked into the bedroom where Elizabeth and Matt stayed and found Elizabeth's glasses, makeup, contacts solution etc so decided to make a quick trip to Sydney - caught the train up and quite enjoyed the time to be able to read my book.  Met Elizabeth at QVB and she treated me to lunch.  We had a walk around QVB and I tried on a couple of dresses.  Just seeing what's around that I may like for the wedding - no date yet as they're still deciding on a venue.  Lovely surprise day out.
