On Saturday, we went out to Ikea and chose bedroom furniture for both girls bedrooms at our house.  Both girls have been gone longer than 4 years and their bedrooms are very teenagey.  We also have friends come to stay from interstate so it will be nice to offer a queen sized bed, decked out in nice manchester.  We then went to Marion shopping centre to get said manchester.
 Back home, Bri and I got ready to go see Dirty Dancing in the city. I happened upon the tickets when friends offered them as they couldnt use them as they had an unscheduled trip to Bali instead. 
Kirby, Gus and Ai saw DD in London back in 2010 and Bri has been itching to see it so it was her birthday treat. Kirby and Gus had a quiet night in.

First stop, Goodlife Pizza ...
~
Pre-show, we had a Pachanga frozen slushy cocktail - watermelon flavoured!
~
Everthing was going well until this giant sat in front of me! Really? You are kidding me!
He did scooch down a bit when the show started but I still had to peer around him! Happens to me every time!   Does it happen to you too?
~
We loved the show, quite funny in places with great dancing and singing.
~
~
Last stop, the InterContinental for a espresso martini after the show!
~
We finished the weekend at Shanghai Teahouse for Sunday lunch with the girls before we headed back home. Yummy dumplings, satay skewers, beef buns and chicken and cashew stirfry, so good.
Four hours later, we were home at 6pm.
~
Now Gus has the unenviable task of puttng all those flat pack Ikea products together.  There are only two three drawer chest of drawers and four bedside tables!!!  Only!

Cheers - Joolz xx
