Good One

The Starchild recently won tickets to a corporate box at the footy and we were fortunate enough to have everything work out so we could go last night.

Mamma Bear looked after the widdies - she is so good with them and even though they don't see her as often as the outlaws, they take to her immediately and it always makes things so much easier.

The tickets included parking, which was fantastic and a first for us at Homebush Stadium.

We felt pretty spesh going into the box area and were the first ones in the box we were in - which also has to be a first for us. There was a hostess chicky, who was just basically an employee of the company and was very easy to get along with, and a chef chicky, who was very nice but ever so busy all night. All up there were about a dozen or so people.

We had two types of bruchetta and a smoked salmon wrap for the entree, dinner was a succulent beef on a bed of couscous, there were also hot chips, spicy sausages, curry chicken puffs, baramuni puffs, beef and mushroom pies, baby burgers, cheese and mushroom mini pizzas and a load of other things that I can't remember due to the lovely semmilon sav blanc that was my choice of beverage for the evening. The ever-fussy Starchild didn't eat a thing the whole night except for a few chips, but he drank lots of coke and enjoyed the fantastic view of the ground.

But, best of all, Souths actually came away with a win, and we also won a little over $20 on the complimentary TAB bets that came as part of the box tickets.

We got back to Mamma Bears around 10:15pm and were on our merry way home a bit after 11pm, which put us safely home around 1:15am and in bed just 15 short minutes later. It was a long day, particularly for The Starchild who had risen almost 23 hours earlier, but it was a good one.
