Fishing and Kite Flying

We had a quiet Easter weekend, and week of holidays following. As we live on a pretty tight budget and with no time to save to go anywhere after all the bills we have had, we spent time at home fixing the cubby house (well my husband did) and we also did a couple of free holiday activities.


We flew kites, well tried to but it wasn’t very windy.


We went fishing. My (selfish) head was saying Noooo I hate fishing, but my heart was saying, the kids will love it and they need to get outside. So we went and it was fun, even though very windy, we all had a great time.


Testing out some new Lightroom templates I found over at

super easy to use.

Crazy Day Sale – Launceston, Tasmania

Every year our city has a Crazy Day Sale, a lot of local businesses use it to get rid of summer stock etc, I don’t often go to them as I never have any spending money, or often don’t find anything I like.

This years theme was Star Wars, and when I mentioned to my son, of course he wanted to go. A few years back he dressed up as Darth Maul for a school event, and wanted to revive the outfit.

Saturday morning arrived and we scurried around trying to get to town in time for the costume parade.

...and fight

Some cute little Darth Vaders to fight with

Look at that face

Who wants to be in the parade?

Up he goes, parading his black bed sheet, strategically placed with hair slides and a pin

I think Chewwies face was annoying him
