Home alone!

This will be a very quick post tonight as I am home alone!!! enjoying some peace and quiet. SH has taken both the kids to Melbourne to the cricket. HS is a member of the Melbourne Cricket Club and we have not taken advantage of this in the last 12 months so thought we would try this year to get our worth out of the membership. To become a member you have to be nominated and basically wait on the list until someone dies to be offered membership. HS was nominated at 2 and received his membership at 16 so quite a wait. Their ground (the MCG - Melbourne Cricket Ground) is where the football grand final is played each year and cricket test matches etc. HS may take a certain number of guests depending on the event and as long as they abide by the dress code. It will be in the years to come that he will really appreciate this membership. Not quite sure why but SH has never thought to put an application in for himself and maybe because she was a girl we also never put one in for the 'horsey' one. We have decided to do that this year and one day they may be lucky enough to reach the top of the list!! Anyway they have gone to see Victoria play Western Australia in a 20/20 match, first a womens game followed by the men. I just spoke to them and they are having a great time although very cold now that the sun has gone down!! They won't be home until about lunchtime tomorrow so I am forgetting the housework and doing what I want!!! About to go to bed to watch some tv with a coffee, some chocolate and a new magazine - Homespun - no less, my favorite!!
I am so thankful for the companionship of my furry friends while I enjoy a quiet house. There are 2 bloggers out there whose husbands are both battling serious health issues. Please pray for them and their families.

Enjoy your quiet time. I had some of that myself too this weekend. (Although now it is only hubby and me.) I cranked up the music and caught up on some sewing. It was great. Who cares about housework a good thing about getting older you can say your eyesight is failing and you can't see the dust, cobwebs so clearly :)

Do you take advantage of the V.R.C. reciprocal membership ? I am sure the horsey one would love to see the gee gees. Enjoy your blog.
