And when the sun comes out, so do the jandals (flip flops). Bought myself a new pair - I live in these over summer.
Toes done, check! And my sister talked me into getting a Shellac manicure - I haven't had a manicure in years. I'm a nail biter, and tend to garden without gloves so it has never been something I bothered with. But I'm hooked, no chipped nail polish and I've stopped chewing on them. (Penny - love how you spotted them in my review). Feeling a bit fancy!
Try not to look too closely at the photo above - there is a lot of butter in these vegemite scrolls. I never got to sample these ones. I packed Tom off with a tin full when he went to a friends house to play. I had a few sitting on the bench, ready to have with a cup of tea. The phone rang, and when I came back they were gone!
Clams for dinner. Delicious.
A lovely treat in the post from Kimberley of Creative Chaos. Kimberley sends Lego magazines and posters for Tom which he pours over for hours. And tucked inside was this beautiful wash cloth.
Thank you so much Kimberley - you are always spoiling us xo
School holiday mess. It's a give in. It's easily dealt to - I'm a bit Sargent Major when it comes to mess - I have a "place for everything" (this really does work) so it is easily tidied away when the time comes. I love seeing the boys engrossed in books with them scattered around them.
Gave the boys room another going over. I emptied out the wardrobe and re-organised it.
I'm a fan of plastic boxes. They aren't terribly pretty but they are so practical. I like to be able to see what's in them. And they are easy for the boys to take out (buy the medium sized ones) and carry to the lounge or where ever they want to set up. It makes for a quick and easy tidy up too.
Eggs! 21 eggs each week........any good egg recipes you want to share?!
This handsome little chap is my nephew. He took a huge liking to our dog Maybell. Maybell is great with children and has the patience of a saint. I have spent the last ten days with my sister and my niece and nephew who were visiting from Brisbane. We had such a great time. I loved spending time with my sister. So pleased they are coming back for Christmas. He started walking while he was here too. Wobbly little steps. Am in love with this little guy.
Discovered "Day of the Taco" a pop up restaurant. Open on a Friday night. Mr H and I went last week. Frozen Margarita's and a Set menu. Food was delicious and so filling - I couldn't eat all mine - Starter, main and dessert. All for $25. I invited a group of friends for dinner there last night. A lady's night that we plan on repeating very soon.
One more week of the school holidays to go. I've been keeping everyone busy with play dates and fresh air. I enjoy the school holidays, I love the break from kindy/school runs and after school activities. Can't believe we will be heading into the final term for the year.
Have a great weekend where you are!
