Bring back the weekend

This weekend we got a public holiday on Monday in lieu of ANZAC day on Sunday. ANZAC day commemorates the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops in Gallipoli during the first World War. It is a day to remember the brave troops who have served Australia in battle and support those serving now. Most people attend an ANZAC day service than go to their local pub to drink and play two - up. Its the only day in Australia where two - up is legal, it is pretty much a game of heads and tails with money involved.

I had a wonderful weekend with family and friends.

On Saturday night we had a party...


Than on Sunday we went to the football...

And our team (The Rabbitohs in the white) won!!!

Than we played two up...

and guess what? We won! (Thats my sister by the way)

Than yesterday we went on a big shopping spree, I will share what goodies we bought in an upcoming post.
How was your weekend? Get up to anything exciting? x

    Looks like a fun long weekend. Congrats one winning!

    And looking forward to seeing what lovely things you bought on your shopping spree.

    We didn't do anything really...We did a bit cleaning and organising and that's how we spent the long weekend.
