We got the DVD out from a"Hoyts Kiosk" booth (like a code vending machine only bright green and it's for the latest DVD's which are $3.50 to rent). The machines used to be called "Oovie" however now they are owned by Hoyts. There are three machines near us in different directions and last night we gave it a whirl as a few of my friends use them. It's all done by touch screen menus ie latest releases, kids movies, etc. so you can easily see the picture of the movie on the screen and then it's just a matter of selecting the movie, swiping your credit card, typing in your email address (for the first time) and the DVD pops out. The whole process took about 3 mins. The movies have to be back by 9pm the next evening so no 7 day-er rentals however given you can get the latest DVD for $3.50 on a weekend and it's super convenient we will be using this service from now on. Going to the DVD shop requires looking through all the DVD's on the shelves, waiting in the queue, putting in your password, and waiting around the other side for your DVD's so the Hoyts Kiosk is super easy and super quick. The returns just pop back into the same slot the DVD comes out of and also you do not have to return the DVD to the same kiosk. This morning we had to go to a local shopping centre and they have a kiosk there, so we returned it to a different location which was more convenient today. All good and the movie was great too.
Anyway that's enough about that....here's the pictures of our little family picnic in the lounge room. The kids wanted to have the home made ice cream for dessert as well, however since our dinner was a little on the larger portion size I said they could have some grapes instead. It was a fun night and James told me my bread looked so professional because of the cuts in it that I should be very proud of myself. He was so impressed that it looked like the bakers loaf.
