We had a surprise visitor earlier this week. He arrived with this Kit Kat in hand. See how pretty it is with the dried rose, hibiscus and raspberries dotted all over it. It tastes pretty awesome too!
Who was our surprise visitor? Our oldest son. He walked in the door on Sunday night for a three day visit from Melbourne where he is on the tail end of completing his trades training for the Australian Defense Air Force. The visit had been pre-planned for some weeks apparently – and kept a secret to the very end. Christopher and Tess picked him up at the airport.
Because his brother was home, Christopher of course stayed at home too. Family time – all together for three days. Lots of home made food. Apparently Air Force food at Marc’s current location is not so good. We even ventured out for to an Italian cafe for brunch one day.
Christopher, who is currently in the middle of a three month vegetarian bet, settled for – wait for it, the boy has a big appetite – four eggs, four hash browns, followed by muesli with yoghurt and protein powder. The waiter had to verify the order a couple of times just to make sure he had heard right.
TRH (The Retired Husband) settled for a Big Brekkie served on this huge wooden platter.
I settled for lasagna. We were in an Italian cafe after all. The pasta was home made. It was all good.
Between eating and sleeping we watched movies. Having both boys home again for a while was nice. Having the house back to ourselves after they left is nice too. I think we’ve struck the balance.
