Please Mum....

After a day of playing hard with cousins and a small collision between his head and a rock this little guy just wanted to curl up and have his back scratched!
It is holidays but we haven't had too much time just hanging out....maybe tomorrow will be the day.
I am hoping to tackle a few the of projects next to my machine as well...but not before  we have paid our respects to a fine young man .

Family and Friends

Not only have our school holidays begun but we had a long weekend here in our beautiful part  of the world.
We were celebrating the Queen's Birthday apparently! Happy Birthday to the Queen.
We went on a picnic and treasure hunting outing with our siblings and their boys...plenty of wide open spaces to run off some energy.

We then headed on home to prepare for friends visiting for dinner.....what a lovely way to end the weekend and begin the week to come.
Now just to do some simple planning of how our school holidays will unfold.

The sun has arrived in full force this of tougher sprinkler bans in our part of the world have already begun......
This time of the year is the best time to enjoy the delights of being outside before we are too concerned with the staying out of the sun to protect our skin!
A great activity to participate in is Geocaching. We discovered this about 12 months ago and have had some fun little adventures in the hunt for the "treasure".

You may not even have to go very far from home to locate the treasure.....
You certainly don't need very many supplies to get going.......and the range of treasures is endless...
All you need to do is go here and sign up for your free membership and grab a GPS and head off in search of a tonne of fun...we will be continuing our adventures throughout our neighbourhood and further afar during the next two weeks of school holidays.

Our hearts are broken today by the loss of a fine young man that we did community all too short  leaving us all asking ..........why?

Simply Beautiful

We headed to one of our regional libraries today  to check out this display.......

We were very impressed with all the entries.......and so proud of Meg for having been chosen to have her beautiful piece of art  be apart of the display.

Off to the Zoo

What a busy life our Pre-Primary kid we were off on a school excursion to 

So much excitement about so much to see...if only they stopped long enough to see the animals along the way...
Lucky I took some photos to show him when we came home.LOL 

I could sit and watch these guys all day...

especially this mumma and her baby...they had such a fascinating interaction going on.....

In the rainforest habitat they had the most beautiful photographs by Jane Davenport ,scattered along the path...

As we moved around the zoo at a fast pace I kept reminding myself that I was here with my baby and I had done the same with the other two ,tracing the same steps,looking at the same animals and Yes at times moving just as fast.
The only difference was the girls were much easier to get a sensible photo of!!

A 1st....

Today was Fraser's 1st School Sports Carnival.....
A little bit of nervous energy combined with a great desire to run fast saw him do very well.....I think he has been taking some notes from his dad.....

He was even chosen to run in the Year one relay as a fill this really my baby?
No photos of Meg because she was down with some sickness that kept her in bed all day...real shame because she had a full event plate and was prepared to tackle it all.....hopefully next year.

To do list

Should I have been making a mad dash to IKEA today???
Well probably not but once I have an idea it is hard to push it aside. After my little display at the weekend, I had lots of interest in my orange and black apron.
So I set out to grab some more fabric to fill some requests for just to schedule some sewing time in a crazy week.

How does your garden grow?

This is our vegie patch...we have been harvesting spinach and rocket for a couple of weeks now and the peas and broccoli are just beginning to show themselves.

My Creative Space

My creative space this week has been a little hurried...I have been preparing a few hings to have on show at our Church's Women's Conference which is on Saturday.

I don't go public enough so I get quite nervous about putting myself out there.

For other creative spaces head here.

In all the business of life this week I have seen rainbows....the weather has become quite unseasonal and there have been some lovely displays of colour in the grey skies.

Fraser bringing home this painting yesterday just reminds me to take a breath , look up and see what is around me .......all the while fulfilling the myriad of roles and responsibilities that are staring me in the face.
