The Urban Dictionary defines a Sunday Sesh as being short for “Sunday session”. The act of getting together on a Sunday to socialise and drink likely large amounts of alcohol. That’s not even a lie – it actually says that!
For me, Sunday Seshs’ became somewhat of a tradition of mine just before I had my accident in September 2013. There is just something about the atmosphere I absolutely love, the relaxed feeling of sitting outside, listening to some tunes, drinking a water – common be honest they say! a cold beer or in my case a dad rum. And who could forget – ADULT CONVERSATION!
Nowadays everybody is super busy but I feel if we don’t make time to catch up we never will (unless it’s at the Annual Race Meet). I’m not too worried about who does come or who doesn’t, I’m just giving the option to catch up for a few hours. I’m thinking I’m going to make it once a month or once every few months and make it pretty awesome for the kids, with different activities each time.
Now, my Sunday Seshs’ are all about the kids (Because most of my mates have kids). There is nothing better than watching all the kids playing together and having fun. Not everyone gets to spend a lot of time with their kids and it’s good to see your kids interact with other kids apart from daycare etc.
I have recently invested in some pretty cool water toys for the kids – today Ingham Travel dropped off a little kid pool with a palm tree and a slide, now I just need something for the big kids! But hey – I’m more than happy to just sit under a sprinkler with a coldie haha.
Catch ups like this don’t need to be expensive – have a bbq, even just a sausage sizzle and a few nibbles and your set. Ask everyone to bring a dish and everyone gets fed, lifes good. Here is a link to one of my favourite websites – Frugal and Thriving, check it out for some awesome ideas!
The following videos have some pretty cool activities for the kids. Mr Carl annoys me (Sorry Mr Carl!), but some of these activities are easy to pull off and for most of them, you will have things at home so you don’t have to spend a cent!
