The boys and I are flying solo this weekend, with Scott away on a golf trip for four days. Needless to say I am searching for things to do to keep us all occupied, whilst at the same time keeping relative peace among us. Last week I received a very thoughtful invitation in my inbox, for tickets to the Better Homes & Gardens show. It is rare for me to receive this type of lovely offer and knowing I had an extra long weekend of entertaining the littlies, I jumped at the chance to snap a couple up. Unfortunately my dear Mama is unwell at the moment and was unable to join us for the fun yesterday. So my little bundles of energy and I went along and checked out the scene.
The boys had a good time in the Kid Zone, creating up a storm on the rather impressive arts & crafts table. They jumped on a springless trampoline... of which the sales guy and girl had no hope of selling to me, with our tiny courtyard. And then met some very sweet furry friends... they may have more luck persuading Mama into bringing one of these home in the not too distant future. For the adults, it was a mecca of house and garden and cooking and appliances. If I had been sans kiddies, I could have really let my hair down, but I was just happy to be there and soak up the atmosphere. And I discovered for the first time ever, just how good Weight Watchers food tastes. Because of course free food at a show is an instant hit... and it was YUM! Definitely something in it for everyone and we were ever so grateful to receive the tickets.
