    Oh how I wish I could’ve been a part of one of these long weekends of yours! Particularly the one involving the chocolate peanut butter caramel slice of melty oozing goodness.

  2. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    ooooh how wonderful indeed!

  3. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    That’s my dream couch!!!

    We NEED that recipe! What was the occasion for the second long weekend?
    It is such a treat to come here and read about your adventures. 🙂

    Looks like you had a fab set of weekends, it is the best when you get a chance to catch up with friends at a leisurely pace. I must admit, I’m seriously wondering how I’m going to survive with only a two day weekend and a full 5 day work week next week. I could get used to 4 work days very easily.

    If becoming someone’s squeezable teddy bear is the price to pay to have those slices – I imagine for many its really no price to pay, almost a giveaway

    LOVE that in-built radio couch!

    And can we have the recipe? For the slice I mean, not the couch 🙂

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh my that couch! How cool is that!? It’s like a window seat slash couch slash radio! 😀

    what! no recipe! that is enough to make one contemplate a few illegal activities! Or maybe I am just jealous of your long weekends because we don’t get enough at this time of year. That slice looks amazing, truly amazing! And so is the couch! hard to know what I want more! Did you make crafty stuff? Are you going to share it with us?

    There is so much I want to comment on in this post! So much, in fact, that I’m going to utilise the ever-so-handy numbered list…

    1) I think parents would be much happier if nursery’s in the back garden were standard affairs. Granted, the babies not so much.

    2) I am oh so glad I’m not the only one who struggles to get photos of their phone. The thing is, I did it once. But now I’ve lost the skill.

    3) The retro couch is amazing.

    4) That slice is even more amazing!

    5) “I’d-end-up-in-jail-and-surely-become-someone’s-squeezable-teddy-bear”? Quite literally laughing my head off at that 😀

    6) We have had NO long weekends yet this month. Not one.

    Thanks for sharing yours 🙂

    so its true canberrians do get a gazillion public holidays 😉 and i’m feeling fat just looking that slice!

    Lucky you, how I long for a long weekend. I was musing on how lovely all your friends sound but then I saw that slice and all thoughts apart from “OBTAIN SLICE” flew out of my head.

  13. Adrian (Food Rehab)

    Now that’s how you spend a weekend! Friends, laughter and my gosh…that goodey slice of peanut goodness 🙂

    Totally diggin that retro couch

    Sweet couch, although it’s got the weight of the world on its shoulders with those five remotes plopped down on top of it.

    I can’t even fathom having so many people to catch up with and enjoy the company of. Maybe if I hadn’t moved across the country away from everyone I had befriended… but no, I still don’t know that many people. If I did, I wouldn’t need Make it or Break it. But I’m happy to live, for the moment, through you and your adventures. Sounds lovely, it really does.

    Cuuuuuuutie cutie cute cute cuuute @ the zebra head.

  15. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    oh my goodness that is just drenched in chocolate. seriously, that is heaven.

  16. Theresa

    Hi! From Washington DC! I’m so far behind on your blog, but I live a good crafternoon, and a good slice.

  17. Lou

    Oh.My.Goodness – I’m sorry Jenni, but I’m going to have to steal your couch. Whilst I am robbing her, I may also steal some of your amazing looking slice – that’s the stuff dreams are made of.
    I cracked up as soon as I read the title to your post, love it 🙂

    Now they’re what I call weekends.

  20. Amy

    OMG that is an awesome couch!

  21. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    What a gorgeous time you’ve had! And the retro couch … 😀 😀 😀

    I want a long weekend now. But I usually work stuff on all weekends anyway. At least, I have friends over for a cooking and movie night tomorrow. 🙂

  22. Melanie

    What a gorgeous cake slice!

  23. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    The fact that you used the expression ‘crafternoon’ makes me want to be best friends with you! My sister and I have regular crafternoons, and we have one planned for tomorrow 🙂

  24. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Okay, that couch with the in-built table and the slice are both too die for!

  25. Anna johnston

    Get a load of the couch…. It’s fantastic!!! Glad you had super weekends. Xxx

    When I was growing up, one of my best friends had a similar set-up on her bedroom suite.. speakers.. radio etc on the headboard –And she was 10 years old.. I thought she was the coolest, luckiest girl in the world.

    I love me a chocolate and peanut butter combo.. Mmmmm. 🙂

  27. Shannon

    Your friend’s couch is seriously amazing.

  28. Heidi

    Wow. That slice is hot. I’m sorry big yes I just said that. As is that divine retro couch – shut up! & love the Spartan childrearing plan. Totally legit. Hannah, I’m sorry for all the douchy American-esque terms I’ve used in this comment. I think I’m just hungry. I blame the slice.
