Saturday again?

(Bonnie, having an upright snooze in my overgrown garden)
Wow, another working week over! This week has been a bit of a blur with lots of re-filing (out with the old, in with the new), debtor statements and more reconciliations for the end of financial year. I haven't done much at home apart from cook dinner each night and wash clothes and watch them hang limply under the pergola. Any wind we had only bought rain with it.
My menu for this past week:

Monday - Beef Stroganoff (Gus said the leftovers were even better for lunch on Tuesday)
Tuesday - Pork cutlets, tomato & zucchini bake, sweet corn on the cob and baked potato fries.
Wednesday - Southern style oven baked chicken strips, salad and potato
Thursday - Mac n Cheese for Bri and Me! :)
Friday - Devilled Sausages, mashed potato and green beans (Gus got home late from Adelaide so I had something hot in the pot for him)
Sorry, no pictures at all! My computer man is coming on Monday morning to sort out my pc. It has scrubbed some files so I am hoping he can restore all of that and have it back to me on Tuesday. He is really good and reasonably priced.
Bri is now on 2 weeks holidays then goes back to do her 4th term of Year 12 (she started Yr 12 in the 4th term last year) then in actual 4th term they revise and study for their exams. It just gives them more time to cram all of their learning into the 4 whole terms. She bought home a brilliant report so I think she is on track to complete her studies and do well and hopefully achieve a good ATAR score for her South Australian Certificate of Education.
'Schoolies Week' is celebrated here at the end of last term in November and Bri was planning to go to Torquay in Victoria with some friends and rent a house for 4-5 days and chill out. That seems to have fallen through so they are going to stay closer to home and do the same thing. That makes me happier!
Kirby comes home tomorrow for a week of her Uni holidays. She is in for a busy second half of the year (the final year of her degree in Marketing (Management) as she has been chosen to do a business practicum and is also a 'mentee' with a 'mentor' from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra where she will see how the marketing is handled for the ASO.
Some baking is on the agenda this afternoon - some Choc Chip Cookie Bars and I promised Joe, at work, some cookies for his kids as he has been supplying me with farm fresh googs! I also want to spring clean Kirby's room before she gets home tomorrow. Plus I have plenty of washing to deal with too.
Wishing you a restful weekend (although mine doesn't sound it)
Cheers - Joolz


  1. I am so impressed that even with an extra-busy work week, you still had home-cooked meals that sound amazing! Enjoy having both your girls around. Hope your weekend laundry has better drying weather. k

  2. Sounds like it's been busy over at your house. Just wondering if your computers still "sick" as you haven't posted.

  3. you are a busy bee that's for sure. Hope your PC feels better soon,
