It's just a step to the left............

Sometime in the past year I introduced my daughter to The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the very first time. How she had managed to get to her late 20's without ever seeing it is beyond me but it happens I guess. About a month ago I got an email from her asking me if I wanted to go and see the stage show, her shout for my Mother's Day and Birthday present. Well I couldn't knock back an offer like that, could I? So after a bit of arranging and rearranging I finished work early Friday week ago and headed off to Melbourne with my youngest son, Beau.

It was an amazing weekend of good food, lots of wine and plenty of laughter.  Nick's housemate had her Mum visiting too so it was a really lovely girls weekend.

Of course the highlight of the weekend was going to see this with Nicky. 

And having Min come keep me company in bed early Sunday morning. 
It has been years since I have been to Melbourne but now that Nicky lives there I may be visiting a little more often. Well, as long as I can get someone to drive me there that is. Far too much traffic for this country girl to negotiate but as long as Beau has his girlfriend to visit I should be able to get a lift now and then.
Sunday night I stayed at Beau's in Tallangatta so I didn't have to travel to work on the Monday and finally home Monday afternoon. My little dog was very happy to see her Mum home but not impressed that I headed off to Carpet Bowls that night. With meetings and work during the week I have barely been home long enough to do a bit of washing.

When I look out my front windows I can see Mt Mittamatite across the paddocks. There was snow up there on Tuesday and on the road I travel to work. It is cold here!!!! 

So this weekend I have given the house a good clean and caught up on the washing, made a big pot of soup for dinner last night and to take to work for lunch this week.

I have made some amazing flat bread from a recipe I found at Nicky's and next time I make it I will throw in some Rosemary and sea salt cause I think that will be so much nicer. I whipped up a batch of Hummus from the Chick peas Nick gave me as well, although hers is much nicer than mine.  I will have to find out what she changed in the recipe. So a very productive weekend for me so far. All that is left to do is write a short report for my volunteer position boss and go help a friend out with her computer problems, too easy. Another busy week ahead for me but hopefully I am on top of things for a little while.

Enjoyed the read thoroughly Jackie! Great to catch up with some things you're getting up to, seeing as this friend of yours is so slack at emailing you!! :)

Yes it is a wee bit hard to understand how Nicky has never seen Rocky Horror! I loved that movie and even had the album! Haven't seen any stage productions though I'd love to.

I'm sure I can feel the cold fingers of the snow on your Mountain all the way up here! :)

The flat bread sounds yummo, esp if you put the rosemary and salt in it. Is it easy to make?

Keep well. Hugs ♥
