Meeting Bec and George from The Block
As a family we would all gather around the TV to watch The Block Sky High of an evening. With young children, we don’t often get to enjoy a show together as a family, so it was nice to be able to share that time and know that after the series was over bed time would move back to an earlier time. Jasper still asks at dinner if he can watch the block, which breaks my heart just a little bit.
So, on hearing that Bec and George were going to be visiting Narooma’s Mitre 10 today we decided to take a road trip down the coast for a fun family day out.
The car park was full of people, balloons and colour while the sausage sizzle filled the air with it’s scent, the sun kept us warm – even with the cool wind. The kids had a ball playing on the jumping castle and Jasper and Kahlei had their faces painted as we waited for Bec and George to arrive.
I love these types of days out together. Such beautiful memory making moments, I just can’t get enough of sharing experiences with my loves.
Bec and George made their arrival to cheers before answering questions about their time on The Block. They were honest, open and just as down-to-earth as they came across on the show, not to mention lovely and patient – especially given that they’d already spent the morning in Bega doing the same things before traveling up to Narooma.
The children and I waited in line while James and his mum went to see if we’d won any prizes in the lucky door and, after all the waiting, Jasper managed to throw a wobbly JUST as we were about to meet Bec and George. So, Superman stood around with a grumpy look on his face while his sisters went for a photo. They were suitably starstruck and Kahlei later told me that the next time she meets them she will tell them “I already know you because I watched you on The Block.”
While we were doing photos and dealing with tantrums, James was winning 5 soccer balls (one signed by Bec and George) , 2 travel mugs and a plush dog. Honestly, it was quite a haul.
We had such a lovely day and I am so glad we took the trek.
What did you do today?
