Spur of the Moment

You know how I said I was going to make gingerbread? Well this is what happened instead...
There aren't many things we do on the spur of the moment. Having six kids will do that to you. Two weeks of Easter holidays requires a calendar page printed out so that days can be planned: who has a birthday party to go to, movies, visits and visitors, a day out here and camping trip there...with a few 'unplanned' days for sewing, resting etc.
So when I realised that the "Masterpieces from Paris" exhibition was due to end on April 18, we urgently had to find a day (or 2) to flee to Canberra. Luckily the big C is only a two and a half hour trip away for us.
Anyway to cut a long story short, we booked our accommodation at about 10.30am on Wednedsay morning, told the kids, Princess, Minky and Miss Bee, we were going and to pack an overnight bag and left at 2pm for the Capital. Ms Diva (19) and Master Bath (18) were left a note to say we'd gone, we'd be back tomorrow at around 7pm and please make sure you feed the guinea pigs.
And this is what I saw


Thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

*If you are wondering what happened to the sixth kid - she is "all growed up" (21) and has her own little flat 'n everything...
