All the fun of the fair!

What a huge weekend just gone! I spent all day Saturday (and alot of the night) at Toni's mega crop Cancer Council fundraiser, which was great fun. Met some lovely girls and caught up with some that I knew already, had plenty of laughs, ate heaps of cake, won a prize and raised money for cancer research. I even did some scrapbooking!
Then all day Sunday was spent at the Ekka, which was great. The boys had a fab time. They ate junk and saw agricultural delights not usually a part of their daily lives. They watched events in the main arena and had some good old-fashioned fun fair fun! We kept costs down by catching the train, limiting the kids to 1 showbag each, taking our own lunch and having a 2-ride limit for each child. They were just as happy as they would have been spending twice as much, as you can see in the photos...
Luckily the boys were off school on Monday for the local public holiday, so even though I had to work, at least I didn't have the school run to fit in. Phew. Time for a rest this week!
P.S. Some thoughts to ponder this week-
"If you think education is expensive, try ignorance." -Derek Bok
"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. " -H. Jackson Browne
and finally...
"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. " -William Faulkner
