Life.....

Is so busy. I can't remember which day it is, or what I'm meant to be doing, it's been that crazy busy. And the Mr has been out every night with work. Sigh.

This was my dinner tonight. Was rather nice!

Top - Jeans West
Jeans - Max
Black wedges - Rubi shoes

Nothing handmade to go with Nin's theme this week. Sorry Nin, am very slack!

Our fishing trip with Nana and Poppa was a brilliant success. Miss 3 caught her first fish ever - and a pink one at that! She caught it on her pink rod, while wearing her pink princess life jacket! I caught my first fish in almost 20 years! Mr 5 caught the first fish of the day, and the biggest too! The kids had a turn at driving the boat, with Nana declaring that Miss 3 cannot ever get her license! We can't wait to go out again soon. We went around Whale Island, spotted a seal, and some pigeons too.

We came home with fresh fish, fresh fruit and veges and home kill beef, yum! We are so incredibly lucky!

I hope everyone else has had a great weekend.

Cake......

21st cake for a male family member.....

Photobucket

Chocolate mudcake with chocolate icing, chocolate fingers and Cadbury flake. 

Wont be there to try this cake tomorrow night, so am scoffing the left over chocolate fingers at the moment!

Happy Friday!

Hope everyone has had a brilliant week, and is looking forward to a lovely weekend. The sun is shining here, yay!

We are off to stay at Nana and Poppa's this weekend, and Miss 3 and I are going fishing on Poppa's boat, for the first time ever! I haven't been out fishing since I was a child, I'm quite excited. Although I am taking my Sealegs, just in case!

I went shopping today, to find Mr 5 some winter pants for school. I came out with these, and no pants.

 Over $280 value for $60, score! Oh and my skirting boards do get cleaned, but the vacuum cleaner head leaves this horrible black mark there, which I can't get off. And I don't fancy paint them each time I vacuum, which is daily....

Anyway, off to make a 21st cake, pack our bags, fold washing, hang washing out, make dinner, etc, etc! 

Have a nice weekend xx

Cold Saturday.....

We went for a walk to the park today, and I wore my boots for the first time this year. It was freezing and really, really windy! The kids rode their bikes, while The Man and I wondered around, looking at the destruction of last night's weather bomb.

The kids sailed leaf boats down the stream, and into the pond.

I tried to take some nice pics of the kids, they were far more interested in their leaf boats. But then Mr 5 wanted to take a pic of The Man and I, so we let him. This is what we got, I think it's kind of cute, even without our heads!

Photobucket

I am currently wrapped up in 2 layers of merino, a cotton jersey and my lovely, fluffy dressing gown to keep warm, I cannot believe how freaking chilly it is on the 3rd of March for goodness sakes.

We had pumpkin soup for lunch today, which was very nice. And The Man made homemade pizzas tonight for dinner, they were awesome. Although I did get a little tired of all the questions coming from the kitchen while I was trying to read my book. I gave up in the end.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, keep warm!

The End......

The end of summer is here. It's officially Autumn, which is quite unfair really, since our Summer didn't show it's face much at all. Currently, I am wrapped up in a woolly blanket, this morning I was making lunches and dishing out breakfast in my new, cuddly, winter dressing gown. This afternoon at Rippa Rugby, I stood in my boots, shivering on the sideline while yelling encouragement! (Which by the way, was a brilliant game that was won by the Chiefs, with a score of 9-3, and Mr 5 getting 2 tries!)

Photobucket

After this beautiful day last Sunday, I am not happy about the impending storm due to hit us in the early hours of tomorrow morning. We have been warned to make sure tramps, picnic tables, etc are secured down. They have also told us to make sure we have torches and radios close by.

Umm, hello, it's March. Not June/July/August. I guess I should really embrace this soup making, movie watching weather, but I'm still rather annoyed that my swimsuit didn't even leave my drawer this summer. Maybe I can bust it out at the hot pools instead?

I hope everyone has a brilliant weekend! I am off to decide what soup to make for lunch tomorrow!
