Out and About

Happy Weekend

What did you do this weekend? 

For the first time in what feels like forever we went out for breakfast.  Pre kids we went out every weekend for brekky, but this slowed down after we had Cadel and halted once we had Hamish.  The thought of trying to keep the boys happy in a busy cafe while having an enjoyable breakfast just seemed unfathomable.  

Anyhoo our local cafe Big Brekky recently changed hands.  The food has always been brilliant but frankly the service ranged between slow and just plain rude.  We tolerated it pre kids and often joked about it, but since having kids a 3 hour breakfast ordeal is no longer funny.  

The new owners now have a 7am opening time on Saturdays which suits us because we usually wake at 6 anyway.  The food was as brilliant as always, the coffee was prompt, and they had a very large selection of toys.  Cadel was in seventh heaven with such a large collection of Thomas trains to play with.  It was such a great experience, that  I can’t wait to go again.  

We also observed Earth Hour, and hung out with my sister this afternoon while Dan and her boyfriend went to the pub to watch the Formula One.

  1. Nice to meet you too Rachel. The cafe breakfasts sound fab. We have always made a pact to brave cafes and restaurants with the kids in tow, no matter what the fallout. Sometimes I think we’re a bit masochistic, but most times it turns out to be quite OK!!
