This week I have done things differently - you may have noticed my absence here and it has been deliberate. Time away from blogging, facebook, twitter and all things online has allowed me some breathing space this week. Not only that - but I have committed myself to taking the children out every day while the weather is fine. What an improvement this has made! Yes, I'm totally exhausted but in a good way. Now to share some of our week with you:
Lemon and poppy seed drizzle cake, recipe here
I love how my 5 year old has such a strong mothering instinct, she attracts little ones wherever she goes.
I love how my children are growing and changing and feel so blessed to be a part of it.
Op shop finds + daytura flowers = happiness!
Enjoying local sights.
Jar makeovers with paper, mod podge, colour papers and ribbon.
I printed out an old picture I like, soaked in tea and dried. Then coloured lightly with watercolour pencil and sealed with mod podge. Attached and layered with mod podge also. Tied a velvet ribbon around and placed some dried poppy heads in. Easy!
I've re - committed to my desire to live fully on baked bread. I'm going pretty well with no bought bread for about 2 weeks. I bake it every second day.
Slow and steady wins the race. I hope I've finished stippling this quilt by M's 4th birthday next month!
Rock cakes are a constant favourite here. I'll try to post the recipe on my other blog sometime soon.
If I haven't visited your blog lately I do apologise - I don't want to become one of these bloggers who expect comments but don't give any. Perhaps you'll decide to remain silent today in protest!
Hope your week has been as productive as mine. God bless!
