Saturday morning means footy. So Woody and I are up early and get ready and head straight out the door. Woody is delighted to be at footy and is absolutely brilliant.  He tries super hard at every exercise and just smiles like crazy. 

Back at home, Noah is awake and we rustle up beach stuff and head into Broadbeach.  We decide to pop into the surf club for a morning tea of caffeine and a brownie.  Very satisfactory. And then we are on the beach.  There is a grandstand and lots of activity as there is a rowing championship.  It is not on whilst we are there so we can to have a play on the beach.  We make foot prints for all the animals from the Gruffalo  and then Noah and Woody  have a game of footy, with a hole in the sand as goal.   Woody does a lot of crazy laughing.

We head over the pacific fair shopping centre to buy Woody a bucket.  In the process Woody sees a gazillion things he would like for his birthday. He sees the thing he is actually getting in the store and he loves it.  Phew. 

We stop for Woody to have an omelette and toast for lunch and then we head home.  Put exhausted little fella is asleep in a heartbeat.

Back at home Woody sleeps for about an hour, Noah works, and I go through the filing cabinet and reorganise and relabel everything.  I have been meaning to do this for ages as life feels a bit out of control when the paperwork is not organised.  I feel a sense of achievement.

Woody watches some TV and I check the cupboards for what I can make for a picnic dinner.  I draw a blank.  So I quickly make a pizza.  This is not the most convenient of picnic foods, especially when it means having to take a boiling hot tray in the car and to the park.  But this is what we do.

There are a few bands on at Broadwater park.  Woody has a bike ride and a dance and we all sit and have some pizza.  We then go for a walk and Woody is just the happiest kid in the world.  He seemed intent on joining another family, so that was the only thing that was a little weird – other than that a terrific night.

Back at home, Woody tries to resist going to sleep but sleep wins in the end.  Noah stays up and works and I am not sure what I do, but I think it involved falling asleep on the sofa. 

Yawn. Goodnight. x
