So I have done some rearranging and put most of our toys away in another cupboard and we are only going to have this small box in the lounge room. (Even the basket on top is going to find another use.) Half toys and half books, next to the reading corner. I am planning to try and rotate the toys more often and keep some as special times toys.
- to snuggle, cuddle, tell stories and chat
- to have quiet time and read
- chill out spot when one of the boys has woken up but isn't ready to face the world yet (did you spot Jai)
- a place to go (or be sent) if one needs to calm down a little.
- a great supply of pillows for pillow fighting
It has many, many uses.

Such a simple toy but so much fun.
There were also things for me - some very beautiful wool that I can't wait to make into something for me.
Hopefully, you'll get to see some of that soon.

Early morning veiw from the house, the lake is just through the trees.
With NO interruptions.
It was a lovely refreshing time. The next one is already planned!

My grandma used to do heaps of preserving too but she died when I was very little. I really enjoy talking to my dad about what she did and anything he can remember about how she did it. Apparently she would go to Stanthorpe and get boxes of cheap fruit and come home and preserve for days. I would love to do that. Maybe soon we will have a weekend trip to Stanthorpe.
even though I actually can't remember her at all.

I don't feel old at all!!
But I really do like old things (or perhaps vintage is a better word).
