I scrapbooked.  This one simple page has taken me all month, but it is the first page that I have done in well over a year. I've missed it, but I am struggling to make time to do this favourite past time.  Something I'm thinking about and working on.  Obviously with baby steps.   I did this page with the inspiration of the March challenge at the Kraft + blog. A very old photo and very old products but another story told.

Back In Action

I have been laid low by a cold of very few symptoms - just a sore throat and extreme lack of energy.  But I'm getting back to normal now and hope to post soon. I missed a couple of days worth of photos and that makes me sad.  But I will press on.  The photos I have been taking while unwell I think I will find have been less than stellar, but at least they got taken. My kids can expect to be shot this afternoon. I'm sure they'll be thrilled.

Watching Them Watching

We took a trip to the zoo earlier in March.  Making good use of our year pass we received for Christmas. I love the zoo. But I do have a lot of zoo photos. So this time I decided to take some photos of them as they were watching and moving around the zoo.  It was only a quick visit, so not a lot of opportunity, and these are the kind of situations I seem to not do so well with.  Practise makes perfect. 


What’s Been Cooking? #1

You may or may not know that I love cooking in my Thermomix.  I thought it might be fun to occasionally share some of what we've been creating.   Teeny Teddies…

Not My Best Morning

Monday morning. It did not go well. We discovered a lack of milk for breakfast. That's okay, I'll run down the shops and get some (with a bit of a huff and a puff). A lack of bread for lunch. That's okay, I'll let them have a lunch order. A lack of lunch order bags. That's okay, I'll use an envelope. Then we discovered head lice.  The possibility had arisen earlier over the weekend, but I had not followed up on it sufficiently.  This was the straw that broke the camels back. It was not pretty. Elisha had…

Not Forgotten

It's not that I've forgotten, it's not even that I haven't had time, it's just that I'm not sure what to do with this my little ol' blog. So many ideas floating around in my mind.  I'm sure I'll pick something and stick with it soon. See you when I come back!

School The First Day

I may have left taking the obligatory first day photo until it was well and truly time to leave.  That may have meant for quite a rush job. The kids may not have been to happy about having to have their photo taken... What year are you in kids?   We dropped Elisha off first, but apparently when you're in Year 5 your parents don't even have to come into the class room to help you get settled and sorted.  Times they are a changing.   Then Cayley...   And last, but not least, Jos.…
