Life lately.....

Hasn't been overly good. I've had shingles. Ugh. Worst pain ever. We've had a few other bits and pieces going on too, but fingers crossed we are all sorted and ok now! So I've been very quiet, and didn't complete photo a day May, which I was disappointed about. So life hasn't been overly exciting, but here's some pics I've taken in the last wee while.

Photobucket

1. Pilot Bay
2. Spiced apple mini loaves
3. Games night
4. Lemon honey drinks - bliss on a sore throat
5. Main beach
6. Pizza
7. Teacher only day fun
8. Bath - bliss and required a lot lately
9. The Mount
10. Tonight's dessert, chocolate brownie
11. Rock pooling
12. Dressing up
13. No knead bread
14. Manicure - a little girl was so desperate to have one
15. The Mount
16. Pumpkin soup

I hope to be out and about more now that I'm feeling better, life will be a bit more exciting now - it's rather boring lying on the couch all day!

I hope you've had a good weekend! Have a brilliant week!

We went for a late afternoon drive, and visited a beautiful spot, 20 minutes from town. We found crabs, shells, saw fantails and beautiful views, picked some mandarins and stopped to see a small hedgehog crossing the road. A great place that we will be visiting again soon.

Faces.

Photobucket

I said to the kids that I needed to take a photo of faces, Miss Muffet quickly rushed to her room and arranged her favourite 'faces' especially for Mummy. Cute.

Life.....

Is rather busy, so much to do, so little time!

Photobucket
Spent a lot of time in the car today. I think I spend half my life in there. Usually driving the kids around.

Photobucket
New sparkly shoes for Miss Muffit. She wont stop wearing them. She wore them to bed.


Photobucket
Dishes. Along with driving, and washing, I am forever doing these. I sense a theme.

Photobucket
Who knew shopping for a new kitchen bin could be so hard. And seriously Payless Plastics, who is going to pay $150 for a stainless steel kitchen bin?

Photobucket
Scored this lovely bunny for $1.99 the other day, was nearly $20 at Easter. I am happy with my chocolate bargain. I am hiding it from the husband.

Photobucket
It's cold. Really cold in the mornings. This wee furry critter burrows down under the covers, and doesn't come out until after 10am. What a life.

Photobucket
Loving this new Trilogy rosehip oil + antioxidants. Awesome for your skin.

Photobucket
Also loving this L'Oreal primer. Brilliant stuff.

Photobucket
I need to clean my pantry. And my fridge. And my oven. And my windows. Argh.

Wardrobe Wednesday.....

Bit slack on the WW post this week, couldn't find my camera after the busy weekend, so had to make do with my phone. But I didn't trust Miss 3 to take a full length shot, so just took a couple myself. Have now found the camera, but am snuggled up in pajamas and dressing gown, as it's so cold here! 10 degrees!

Anyway, I scored the dress from the Glassons clearance pop up shop at Bayfair a couple of days ago, for $20, score, as I think I will wear this dress a lot. Shoes are Rubi shoes black suede look wedges.

Link up with Sailor Spy if you have done WW, and if not, go check out the awesome outfits from everyone! Am very slack too, I haven't linked up with the theme 'Remix' either, was rushing everywhere today, and quickly planned my outfit while I was taking my 2 minute shower!

ANZAC Day and Wardrobe Wednesday.....

Thinking of all our fallen soldiers today, and how they fought for us. My Brother in law is off to East Timor shortly, and I have been thinking a lot lately about the brave soldiers that fought so hard for our country, bless them all and their families.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them

Lest we forget.....
