Weekends are never long enough

Friday night – home after a very long week at work.  Just want to lay on the couch, but washing needs to be done.  Over the course of several hours I bring in last week’s washing (slack aren’t I?), run two loads of washing through the machine and hang them out.

Still managed to watch a fair bit of HIMYM, Doctor Who and whatever else was on TV Friday night.

Saturday morning it was up early to head to the other side of Melbourne for a movie night with Mr P and Mrs S (and little Mr R).  Amazing home theatre setup!

Before we left I tried out one of the many granola recipes I found.
Unfortunately I think I overcooked it slightly.  Next time less cooking and rolled oats, not quick ones.
Tried it for the first time this morning. Not sure if it is the recipe or that I are not so used to sweet things at the moment, but it was VERY sweet.
Next time maybe less maple syrup or less dried fruit.  Definitely edible, and tasty, just needs a few tweaks.

I took a brief hiatus from the anti-sugar crusade to enjoy some lovely gluten and additive free chocolate cake and a late night ice cream rush.We took full advantage of the home theatre for as long as we could – movies and Harry Potter Lego on the big screen – then headed to bed.Early Sunday morning full of banana pancakes, hash browns, eggs and bacon.

We said goodbye to our wonderful hosts and headed out early-ish for our next stop.
Star Wars 1: The Phantom Menace in 3D.

We enjoyed the movie (with the exception of Jar Jar), mainly just from seeing it on the big screen again.  Can’t say that the 3D conversion was all that amazing, or possibly even necessary. After spending the first 30 minutes with slight eye strain, the headache went away and I was able to relax and enjoy the movie. There were no scenes or effects that we had a ‘wow’ reaction to. In fact most of the time it was difficult to even remember that it was in 3D. Still loved it.
