AT MY HOUSE…

We have escaped our house and have joined Lou on an extended long weekend at Mum’s house with the whole family.

I can’t tell you how nice it is to escape reality for a few days and have the aunts, uncles, cousins and Granny there to help entertain the kids! Entertaining 5 kids indoors (mostly) for a few days is not always an easy feat, but with endless games of hide and seek, drawings of masterpieces (thanks Kate), stomping in muddy puddles, the balancing of cards and mini chairs, hilarious dress ups and trick or treating in every doorway of the house, they did a superb job – thank you!

It has been a welcome relief from the everyday which has been quite the balancing act and particularly exhausting of late. I haven’t always been managing to balance it all that well.

This weekend has been a welcome relief.
Thank you family.


What has been happening at your house?


P.S. Don’t forget my little giveaway. Details here.

THIS SATURDAY I’M GRATEFUL…


This Saturday I’m so very, very grateful for my very talented and very generous little sister who did some fun drawings of a frog, a goose and a bear and made them into a blog header for me. It’s only taken me six months of blogging to finally have a proper header!!

She also drew me my very own picture for my regular EASY PEASY DINNER WINNER linky, so if you link in on the occasional Tuesday, feel free to add this picture to your sidebar and link it back here.


I’m quite excited about the new look and I’m very grateful for her time as I know it is precious.
Thank you Clare!!!

I’m also grateful for my sister Lou and my husband for taking 5 kids out for baby cinos in the rain giving me some time to blog and for my wonderful mother for putting up with a house full of mad children for an extended weekend (while still trying to keep the house spotless for potential buyers…).

I’m grateful for all of the rain that is so needed here in Victoria, but I am also grateful that we decided to stay at Mum’s house and not go camping as originally planned!

I’d also like to add that I’m very grateful that one can still win a whole game of 5 handed 500 without ever actually winning a trick! All the glory, without necessarily having the skill ;)

What are you grateful for?




P.S. I’m so very grateful for the wonderful community of bloggers that I’ve come to know in the last 6 months, that I’m having a giveaway! Check out the details
