Cotton Picking Fun

This is part of life on the farm at present,
While things are actually rather busy, the kids are able to have great fun.  
This is the farm life we love.

Sunday Breakfast

Here is our regular Sunday breakfast - waffles and guilt free ice-cream.

This is only way I can justify ice-cream for breakfast.
Two frozen bananas
One frozen mango
A handful of berries
A dash of milk or yoghurt
A handful of nuts of choice
Place it all in the thermomix and blend.

I think a tradition may just be starting with this breakfast.

Autumn Clean

I know - you're thinking that its meant to be spring clean not autumn clean.  Well, I read blogs that having spring at present and have been inspired to do a little spring autumn cleaning for myself.

I find that I like to start things.  I dream up this wonderful new idea and run off to start it.  But then life interrupts my dream and things are left unfinished.  AND my drive to get back and finish it is non-exsistant.  Then I come up with another new idea and start that and so it goes on.

This week, it got too much for me.  The pile of half started sewing projects that are accumulating on the floor in my bed room was driving me nuts.  Now I'm working on reducing this pile.  Here's what I've finished so far.

A pot holder - a very late birthday present for my friend.  
I used two layers of an old wool blanket inside as my heat barrier.

My first pair of flannelette inside out pants.  I plan to make many more of these for the looming winter months.  They are so warm and toasty that I think I want a pair for me.

I am totally enjoying finishing things this week - getting ready for the next big idea.

Our Week

- watching our littlest one grow way too fast
- enjoying sibling love
- playing at the Beach House
- fighting sickness
- starting real food (if you can call it real)
- learning about wildlife

It feels like the sickness has taken over our week but when I look back at it there have been many wonderful moments to remember.

Fort Additions

It's been a while since we have made any additions to our fort.  We have been talking about these for a while now and how we could make them ourselves but in the end it was much quicker and easier to take a trip to Bunnings.

Scott fitted them late after we got home and the kids were already in bed 
so they were outside playing with them before breakfast the next morning.
