Since I need to bring you up to date on my weekend...
Friday night flew to Brisbane with SJ, MissH and MissF (sisters and friends of mine also invited to the wedding).
Saturday, spent most of the day at Ikea with MissH and MissF looking at goodies they intended to buy to furnish the house they have just purchased together. I will be visiting them tomorrow to help them put it all together. Don't tell anyone, but MissF didn't know what an Allen Key was...
Which brings me to Sunday. As I obviously won't be in Brisbane again this weekend, my sisters and I decided to celebrate Mother's Day a week early. I shipped SJ off to visit some of his family in Toowoomba and sent (though they went very willingly) MissH and MissF to MovieWorld for the day.
As you can see from the boat above, we hired from www.capriboathire.com and they were really great. My dad has a boat license but we hired a 'restricted' boat, meaning it's bigger than a 'tinnie' but they stop it from going faster than one. It means you can hire one for the day without a boat license.
Mum loved it, says she wants one.
We drove (is it still driving?) through the Broadwater and stopped for lunch on Wavebreak Island.
If you're looking for something to do on the coast, I can definitely recommend it. Cost $160 for four hours and gave us plenty of time to get to Wavebreak and back.
Mum loved it. She was so excited to have all of us in one place
without boyfriends, something that hasn't happened in a long time
(Christmas morning maybe? even then I think we had an extra). Even
better, we were all well behaved and there was no arguing all day. Quite
an achievement for four daughters I think!
