The card that DH presented to me on Sunday night says it all...lol
It all started on Friday Night with another Parish Trivia Night...we now have 2 such evenings a year. These nights are lots of fun with much laughter and fellowship. There are 6 of us who usually form the nucleus of our team, and various other friends join us.
On Friday night, my art lecturer from my 2nd year at teachers' college, and his wife,joined us. Sadly we had no 'Art' type questions, but Graham has lots of other knowledge. DH is renowned for his knowledge of Sport, Movies, Musicals and Songs/music. One of the rounds of questions consisted of lines of songs being read out and you had to guess the song's title which would contain a place name...not easy without the tune sometimes.
One song that no one seemed to know but the words 'rang a bell' somewhere for me. It had maths facts like 6 and 3 is 9 and 9 and 9 is 18. I racked and racked my brain to remember the rest of the words as I recalled that the song is on the Blues Brothers album on my iPod and it's a favourite song as I ride my exercise bike... I remembered in time before we had to hand over the answer sheet...Chicago! The song was Sweet Home Chicago! Lol...
Our team won the night...luckily no tie breaker was needed, because that was a very difficult set of anagrams to solve. The photo below shows our 'loot'.
Those bags contained a bottle of white wine, a slab of Rocky Road and a jar of homemade rosella jam.
On Saturday night most of the family gathered at our house...I had said no gifts but I was thrilled with the Garden Centre voucher, the Bunnings gift card and some vouchers for La Boîte Theatre here in Brisbane.
Everyone brought something for the meal and these 2 darlings took charge of the BBQ...
After my lovely evening on Saturday, the spoiling continued...on Sunday morning I got taken out for breakfast too as it was Mothers' Day.
And while I was out at breakfast, the flowers on the right were delivered; a surprise from DD2 and her partner. The yellow arrangement was on the table in the cafe where we breakfasted...it had a label saying 'Please take home with you'...a lovely gesture from the owners of Expresso 351 at Taigum.
