Today I'm off to lunch with the Sue's.  Two bloggers from Hamilton. I met Sue #2 the other day, and am looking forward to meeting Sue W today.  

I am sure we will have a nice time, we are going to the new pub in town, the Good Union.

ABOVE:  The Good Union is a new pub/eatery in Cambridge.  It's been open a few months and is VERY popular.
They are a boutique brewery as well.  I doubt I will be sampling any of their beers any time soon!

I am looking forward to trying their food though, Stew and I have been meaning to go for a while now, but it still hasn't happened.

Could have something to do with having to drag 3 kids along too? Yep, that's probably it.

Much as I love our kids/grandkids, it is going to be AMAZING when it's just Stew and Me!  Maybe in 5 years? 

Because Keera has a full day at Kindy, I can enjoy lunch and not have to rush off to pick her up either.  Her kindy is actually just 300 meters up the road from the pub! 

This morning, before I go out, I will be just doing odd jobs around the house.  Like so much FUN.  No really!  I love housework ...said no one EVER.


Oh shit, sorry I've not been on all day!  Been busy.

First up, I did some friggin housework.  Then I got all tidy and was about to  head out to meet the Sue's, when they rocked up in me driveway!

So they came inside and had a natter, then we went off to the pub (sounds so evil!) for lunch.
I got a ride with them, seemed silly to take two cars to the same place.

I swear, those two could be my missing sisters! We are so alike... it's scary.
Sue #2 warned me that Sue W was crazy and loud, and well... I think I held me own with those two!

Can you believe we ALL have a son who's a builder?  True dat.

Anyway... we spent a good couple of hours enjoying a lovely lunch:

ABOVE: Sue W taking a photo of our lunches!  Doing what all good bloggers do... cos I was doing the same obviously.  I had pork on a stick and some fries.  I didn't eat all the fries I'm proud to say.

Sue W had Pulled Pork on a Rosti... it looked delish.

 ABOVE:  Sue # 2 had a chicken and Avocado Salad, she said it was lovely.  It looked lovely too.  AND it was REAL chicken... not pressed shit.

I had a blast with those girls. 

At one point we were discussing WEIGHT *sigh*, and I was saying how I hated my face/boobs and bum... and Sue W decided to declare that she LOVED MY FACE, BOOBS AND BUM.... just at a young male waiter came to our table!

OMG!  He was highly amused... I think!  We tried to assure him we were not lesbians... but by the time Sue W got that tidbit of information out, he had scarpered.!  lol  

As I said, we had a blast, and I thorougly enjoyed myself.  THANKS GIRLS for taking me into the 'fold' so to speak.
I reckon we are going to be great friends.  *smiles*

 ABOVE:  Isn't that a lovely photo of us three?  Sue # 2 just loved those cows.  

We had lunch indoors, as it was blisteringly hot outside, and I think I would have melted if we'd sat out there.  Wouldn't have been a good look.

I'm sure there will be photos on the Sue's blogs of our lunch too:  Sue W and Sue # 2.

TRACY:  "Ladies at lunch"... ha ha ha! There is nothing ladylike about us let me assure you!  We are all down to earth, say it like it is chicks.
I love that about the Sue's.  Really, really normal, fun loving girls.  MY sorta girls.

Winding down for the day.  It's is unbelievable HOT inside this house tonight.  I turned on the Air Conditioning and closed the kitchen/family room door to keep it cool in here at least.

Coronation Street is on, 2 hours of utter enjoyment.  Then bed to toss and turn and sweat.  Oh ya.
