No.4. A busy day


Saturdays are always a busy day for us from the moment we wake up and rush around to find the kids horseriding gear for their riding lessons at Pegasus stables.

We then have a brief moment to grab a cup of coffee in town, go to the farmers and growers markets and maybe even read a page or two of the local weekly newspaper.

Then it is time to change into swimmers again and back to Teddy's swimming lesson at Suzanne's place, Ted's school teacher Judy is also his swimming teacher which he loves.

Mum and dad are staying at Fletcher Christian apartments. The grounds are looking lovely at the moment as is the swimming pool. Ted couldn't wait for his lesson and jumped in followed by his sister, the only problem was that she was wearing her jeans still!

This morning was the annual Christmas toy sale at the Bounty centre which is a huge toy shop in the centre of town. Santa came to visit, but by the time we had finished the horseriding lessons, Santa had already flown back to the North pole on his reindeer.

I thought Sienna (5) would be most upset but it was big boy Teddy(7 and a half) who dissolved into tears.

We found this cute little Santa baby on the shelf and will have to take him home as he is so gorgeous!

This afternoon, we decided to go to play free mini golf and have an ice cream at the mini golf toy shop.
The mini golf course has recently been renovated and shows the history of Norfolk Island from it's birth as a volcano to present day.

Such a busy day, poor Sienna didn't last long after her bath, she just curled up in an armchair and fell asleep.

We are hoping that it will be a lovely day for swimming at the beach Morla (local speak for tomorrow).
