Ten on Ten - November

I'm not joining in with the "Full Harvest" prompt because we are heading into Summer here in Australia. The weather was trying to be Fall like, but we all know otherwise. Even though it was a stormy cold day, those hot crispy days will be here again in a day or two.

We had a huge day Saturday with swimming training, a bike ride and the Great Moscow Circus. I thought Sunday would be more interesting but it turned out to be a pretty low key rainy day. My lovely hubby took the kids into the city, to his office, to the kids Christmas party they were having. So I spent most of the day at home, by myself, which I really enjoyed.

Little Remi is obsessed with balloons at the moment. He found a whole bunch of water balloons in the cupboard and it has become his mission to use all 100 of them in 2 days.  He has been blowing them up and tying them himself which he is pretty chuffed about. (He threw all the water bombs at us  on Saturday when it was a bit warmer). Both boys made a mini version of themselves - so funny.

Tidying up toys...
 A souvenir from the circus..

My Father in Law dropped in for his usual Sunday morning visit before he went to work. He bought over some flowers (as he often does) to brighten up the place. He gave the boys a rainy day treat - mini Meccano sets. They sets took a while to put together but they were so pleased with themselves when they were done.

Lunch for me, was Vegemite on Turkish bread toast - yum!

I cleaned up a little bit while they were gone today, but also had some time to get some ideas out of my head and onto paper. I can't walk past the kids textas without drawing something in my mind.

On their return home they had some helium balloons (from the party) so they joined their balloons to mini balloon versions of themselves that they made earlier this morning. 

A game of GoFish before a short movie and then it was lights out!

It was a really lovely weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by, see you next month!!

See last November's 10 on 10 here! They grow so fast!
