Life has been hectic since we arrived back home 3 weeks ago.
We missed Xander's 2nd birthday party while we were away, but made it home in time for Jaimeson's first birthday.
Tassy's 10th birthday party a week later.
. Tassy always has the day off school for her birthday and chooses an activity for the family. For the third year in a row it was ice skating. No one else was at the ice rink at 1.30pm on a Monday!
|Beyond Q Bookshop Curtin|
Yvette took us to a very interesting bookshop, downstairs in the tiny shopping centre at Curtin. The number of books for sale was amazing and each bookcase was topped with a display of old toys or bits and pieces of interesting stuff. A lot looked like they had come out of someones old house. While looking through the books we were delighted to hear an old Grandfather clock chime. It made the whole atmosphere perfect. Especially when the smell of brewing coffee wafted from it's coffee shop tucked away in one corner of the shop and furnished with old velvet dining chairs and little tables. We indulged ourselves with an Apricot custard tart, Irish Cream cheesecake and chocolate caramel tart.
We also visited The Silk Road Exhibition at the National Museum.
It was very interesting with the sounds of the ancient market towns and displays of stalls selling herbs, spices, exotic vegetables and furs.
