Today.....just a bit of this and that


Roses from Mr H - two bunches - pink and cream - the others are in a jar on the dining room table.
Devouring books - two this month, one I had started sometime last year but never finished.
I love reading cook books in bed at night.
And channelling my inner crochet goddess....I know she is in there!
Lunch box treats - making prune and coconut balls - 500g of prunes in the food processor, roll in coconut, set and store in the fridge.  George loves these.
I tried Kimberley's Chocolate Weetbix Slice - with sprinkles.  Delicious.  The kids enjoyed this for afternoon tea - the rest has been hidden away in the baking tins, sliced and ready to go into lunch boxes tomorrow.
Pottering about in the garden today - the fairy garden is looks sweet with the "Lorax Trufulla Trees" sprouting.
Lots of washing folded....and put away - my least favourite task.
Harvesting in the vegetable garden.  I'm Googling Zucchini Fritters.  Any suggestions?
A walk round the waterfront this morning and a swim followed by homemade fish tacos for lunch.  Early night for me tonight.  Feeling zonked!
Have a great week! xo
