Thanks to my amazing Mum and to my equally amazing husband, Mr FGB & I have just returned from a kid-free weekend!  Two whole days and two whole nights in Daylesford to celebrate our twelfth wedding anniversary.  To say that I am grateful may just be the understatement of the century!

What are you grateful for this weekend?

Because I just couldn’t help myself…

Our kids are more than a little obsessed with superheros at the moment and when I saw these free printables (as well as these & these) I just couldn’t let it pass!

Goose and I created a superDad costume with cape, armbands, mask, boxers (to be worn on the outside of course) and a Superdad shirt (using an old tshirt of Mr FGBs).  It was certainly received with the humour in which it was given and the kids LOVED it!  So funny!

The kids all excitedly set up a Superdad breakfast, with whatever we could find in the house – because of course I’d forgotten we were out of eggs (his favourite) and the pickings were slim!  We ended up with a fruit platter and superhero fruit toast (yes, there are stars stamped on the toast – no detail left unturned;)
Yes, I have an addiction and I’ve passed it on to my kids but one thing I love about blogland is that I’m not the only one!


In Australia, we celebrate Father’s Day on the first Sunday in September – that’s this Sunday.
