birthday weekend

Hurrah on having reached the ripe "old" age of 34! Honestly, I swear it keep getting better - 34 is SO much more fun than 24 was! I'm actually excited for 44 hahaEvie picked a bunch of flowers for me, they had to be pink ones apparently! These lillies smell beyond amazing - the girls at Hello Petal always do beautiful work <3My birthday haul from...

milk & co at the woolshed

I have been following with interest the social media updates for the new Milk&Co cafe which has been set up at the Woolshed at Yallah. We headed out on Sunday morning to give it a try.I think most locals have been to at least one bush dance at the old Woolshed in their lives, things definitely looked different out there today! Seriously loved the...

35 weeks, 35 books

Working in the same building as the city Library has meant that I have been making good use of my membership, and have become something of a frequent borrower.After so many months of veging in front of Netflix of an evening before collapsing into bed, it feels uh-maaazing to be back into reading again. I can practically feel the old synapses firing...

update on Evie's room - toys and books, organisation and space

Our living space is small. It works for us, we're used to apartment living and we really like it - but we simply do not have the space for dozens of toys, nor do we have a "toyroom" or a den to chuck them all in. And as I refuse to have a living area which resembles a toddler rave party, Evie keeps her toys mainly in her bedroom (luckily it is the same...

weekend slow-down

The weekend has already been and gone, so I'm a bit slow off the mark - in my defence it's been flat out around the traps lately.The tone for our weekends easing into the cooler weather has been slow and laid-back, just what we need with so much happening in the week.This one is at an age where she is happy to play independently, but moreso lately she...

rice pudding

What is the matter with Mary Jane?She's perfectly well and she hasn't a pain,And it's lovely rice pudding for dinner again!What is the matter with Mary Jane?I remember loving that A.A.Milne poem as a child, and Evie seems to find it just as funny when I read it to her.Thankfully she doesn't have the same aversion to rice pudding as the little girl in...

pausing to reflect - april already

Can we all believe we are into April? 8 months since we settled and moved into our dream home. 4 months since I stated my new job (oh my goodness, how I love my job!) And less than 6 months before our little girl turns 3! Life is for the most part good and bright.Every Friday I hit up the produce markets in the mall (plus coffee, yew!)Last week's haul!Soup...

all things Easter...

We have had the most amazing, hectic long weekend! I'm still recovering, in every sense of the word. Many late nights have meant that the little girl is having a loooong nap, so I've got a cuppa and have settled down to write an Easter update...I was able to make it to E's daycare Easter hat parade. The kids all made their hats in class - E was very...

season of mellow fruitfulness...

I always forget how much I love Autumn until it arrives, with its cool, breezy days and mild sunlight. I'm sorry to bid farewell to summer, and our long lazy weekends spent at the beach, but Autumn is pretty nice really!E was sent home with Ollie the class Elephant from daycare last week, and she was so excited she was shaking haha She was so sad to...

the whole point of the week is the weekend...

Another weekend is drawing to a close, and what a lovely weekend it has been! V has been harbouring a touch of the man flu this week so we left him at home and headed to the UOW Discovery Centre on Saturday morning and caught up with my sister and her two kiddies. Always a nice way to spend a rainy morning.Pulled out the scotch fillets I'd stashed in...
