Jaffle Test run for the Fair...

Thick slice bread, ~70g curry mince and 4 minutes in the waffle-iron over a "low" gas burner, and viola!

Elmar's in the Valley - Das Gud

A day out with friends is just what we needed. The rain held off and the sun shone! Bargain! As usual the beer was gud, the pretzels even better and the meals A-1! Looking forward to the next visit in summer ;-)

If you looked up "naughty" in the dictionary, this is the picture you'd find...

The girls waiting for lunch. You can just see one behind the cup; one of Elmar's AWESOME pretzels!

I'm juts holding this for a guy...not mine, no siree...


They do serve the usual Aussie sizes, but also a proper German 1 litre versions.
Let's just say one is plenty :-)

Elmar's, jou lekke ding. 
Mmmm, lunch! Bratwurst, sauerkraut, mash and mustard. Delicious.

Beat's wheat beer.

Karla sipping some Coke-Zero before her Apple-Strudel arrives...

Beat, hamming it up for the camera ;-)

Eugene and Ryan had a great 3-hours, as there is a massive grassed (and fenced) area out back.
I took the footy ball and frisbee along.

A quick stop at Yahava for a coffee before heading home.
As usual the girls checked out all the usual bits-and-bobs in the shop.

Me posing with Sandri so her dad can see I am also wearing a scarf. We are getting "soft" in our forties, haha!

Lily and Toy

A lazy Thursday with Ka and Lily

This was meant to be a day off to plan for a camping trip to Dwellingup, but the weather turned foul  and put the brakes on that idea. We were all hoping it would clear, but in the end we pulled the pin on it. Pity.

Anyway, Karin surprised me by also having taken a days rec leave, so we could spend the day together, which was great! We decided to take Lily with us for her first Freo outing, and she loved it (and behaved herself so well!).

Enjoying a cuppa at Hush in Freo. Good coffee and nice spot to watch the world go by.

Mmm, double-espresso and crisp, cold sparkling water. 

Enjoying the (!) sunshine while chilling out at Little Creatures. It was awesome having a day where one could just relax.
Lily was hyper-active in the morning, but by this time she had become accustomed to the different surroundings.

Baby Lily. I groomed here recently and we had to give her beard and eye brows a good trim as there were some dreadlocks forming, haha.

Spur celebration for Karla's good exam results, an evening stroll and testing Capture1 for ARW files

Karla topped 71% for her human-bio exam (ATAR), so we were chuffed and took her for her favourite Wednesday snack at the Spur in Mandurah.

Eugene did not complain either...

My twee Bokkies x

Mmmm, Spur Chicken burger!

...and a Chedamelt Burger for Eugene.

Don't ask; but yes, this is not unusual ;-)

Karin, Lily and I on our evening walk.

Little Creatures lunch and WA Day Freo stroll

We had Founders Day long weekend in WA, meaning a 3-day weekend, which was great. On Saturday we had lunch with some mates at Little Creatures and then wandered the streets a bit. On Monday were were back in Freo on our own for brekkie and just some chill-out time. Nice and relaxing, aaaah.

Waiting for lunch to arrive. Good to see you again too Gazza!

The double-shot boys from the North.

Our better-halves...



Mmmm, Freo Market donuts. Krispy Kreme se Moses.

When we got home it was quite chilly, but madam L knows how the warm herself up.

Monday morning, brekkie at The Coffee Club. Gino's have put their prices up to what can only
be described as silly-tourist prices. There is a fine-line between value and rip-off.

Karla playing with the RX100...

...and catching us a little unawares...

The park across from Little Creatures buzzing with markets etc as part of the WA Day events. 

At Woollies to get some bread, milk etc.

...and practising some basketball before we cooked some meat on the Q.
