Hi folks,
As I missed my 100th post this a Happy February Giveaway instead.

First giveaway is a Lobethal Community Kindergarten Cookbook (featuring my infamous biscuit recipe and lots of amazing food from my amazing teaching partner - her jelly cakes, scones, and lemon nut bread are all much sought after and appear in this book!)  It is also illustrated by the kindy kids so my son's artwork appears on the dips and sauces page LOL!  Lobethal Kindergarten is possibly the best kindy in the southern hemisphere.  We are selling these cookbooks as fundraisers for $15.

Second giveaway is Shannon Honeybloom's book "Making a Family Home".  I enjoyed reading it but it is not a book I need to have on my go-to-again-and-again list so it is being re-homed.

For a chance to win simply leave either a tip on parenting/homemaking for the Shannon Honeybloom book or a quick and easy recipe idea for the cookbook (or one of each to be in both draws)
I will draw this next wednesday.

I am off to Melbourne for five days child free at a Creative Memories Conference.  My friend Meredith and I won an incentive package where we will be treated like princesses for 2 days before Summit starts.  So I am off to pack for my glam girly experience.
Have a great week,
Keep smiling,
