What a hectic weekend! We had a full-on weekend of football for Offspring #1 with his normal Auskick session for a couple of hours yesterday and then the wind-up, presentations, etc, for a couple more hours this morning. It was freezing cold at the rec grounds - not so bad when the sun was out but once the wind picked up it got positively arctic. We also had a birthday party for a small friend of Offspring #2 yesterday afternoon which both kids thoroughly enjoyed. By the time we got home today, after stopping off to pick up some vegies on way back from footy, both kids were plum tuckered out. They both spent the afternoon lazing about, alternately playing on the playstation and watching DVD's or hanging out with their Dad in the shed. Hubby and I were allowed no such luxury and had just a few short hours to get an entire weekend's worth of work done around the house and yard.

I managed to get the house mostly cleaned with just the mopping left to do and I'll tackle that tomorrow while the boys are at work and school. I also got most of the washing done and it's drying in front of the fire as I'm typing this. Of course I had baking to do. More cheesymite scrolls had been requested (that should read DEMANDED!) so I hopped on and got them made for lunches as well as baking some cookies. Donna made these when we visited her earlier in the year and they were great so I'm glad I finally got around to making them. They're still great and totally worth trying. I didn't have any choc chips so I chopped up some chocolate I had in the pantry and used that instead. The honey and the sultanas made them healthy but the chocolate made them yummy!

Oat and Raisin Choc-Chip Cookies

Mmmm...these cookies look yummy! I meant to tell you, we had little packets of vegemite in our lounge the other day and I decided I should taste it. Hmmmm...can't say it's something I'd every eat again or could taste being a sandwich. It kind of tasted like solid soy sauce to me and just stuck around! :-)
