|Easter Selfies with my girls!|
|A great walk along the beach at Willunga|
|Easter morning - never too old for Easter Bunny|
|Big brother teaching Little Sister to skim stones at Bushland Park - how to make mummy's heart melt!|
Making : progress on the WIPS - finishing the second sleeve on my blue jumper and finished Maddie's school cardigan this week too
Cooking : malteser cheesecake for James' birthday
Drinking : coffee, and probably a little too much red wine but it is holidays so care factor?
Reading: Drums of Autumn (ALL holidays - I was hooked!)
Trawling: Pinterest looking for skirt patterns
Wanting: To make myself some simple, flattering, quick skirts from the stash fabric
Looking: For suitable high waisted work pants (not easy to find)
Deciding: I really need to lose weight
Wishing: It was that easy!!!
Enjoying: The sound of children alternatively chortling, shrieking with delight, and grumping at one another - the sounds of siblings
Waiting: for James to put the fire on
Liking: the slow but sure success that is coming with my 100 day goal
Wondering: If this house will ever really be clutter free
Loving: Cheese and onion bread toasted
Pondering: How to keep the rabbit out of mischief in the loungeroom
Listening: to the sound of footsteps upstairs
Considering: Best way to market beginner scrapbook classes
Watching: Call the midwife (episode after episode)
Hoping: For a more relaxed term at kindy (bring on Bush kindy!)
Marvelling: At how well my pot plants are growing - normally I kill anything in a pot!
Cringing: At the inevitable chaos and mess that happens when we are all at home
Needing: Fresh air and some serious Spring Cleaning (even though it is Autumn!)
Questioning: How I can keep the same relaxed feeling of holidays during term time
Smelling: my lovely Strawberries and Champagne Serenity Wicks candle - I am not really a candle fan but I do love Serena's fragrances.
Wearing: My comfy black leggings and burgundy tshirt dress and my almost dead black boots
Noticing: The sauce bottle without its lid and a big trail of crumbs on the table...definitely school holidays LOL
Knowing: That this is not a catastrophe and I will miss them when they are all grown
Thinking: About page layouts for SOM blog hop and National Scrapbooking Day
Admiring: Green Gate Porcelain on pinterest (how I wish we could get it somewhere in Australia!)
Getting: slightly chilled - definitely fire time
Bookmarking: slice recipes in Fete Magazine
Opening: Brand new paper packs to play with
Closing: Kitchen cupboards and drawers (I swear we have a ghost - they are ALWAYS open!)
Feeling: Blessed and grateful and slightly cold!
Celebrating: James' birthday tomorrow
Pretending: He is not getting older!
Embracing: My life, my family, and simple happiness
I hope that the holidays have been good to you, and that you are embracing the chill of Autumn in the air, and the many, simple joys in your life.
