We've just moved house, I'm busy trying to unpack whilst also supervising 5 little ones now that the kids are on school holidays. And take my word for it when I say that going to a few different stores or taking them out to do easter shopping is not my idea of fun. But a quick visit to Woolworths the first day of the holidays and the Select range had all of our easter … {Keep Reading...}

Monday Morning Cooking Club : The Feast Goes on


Second cookbook in a fortnight that has come home with me. Uh oh. But I’d been hanging out for this one and there is a bit of background. When my mum was in the last few days of her life we were at the little private hospital and we’d come out of the room to […]

our sunday


Another day and more boxes to unpack. We also went to our new church for the first time, had some pastries and hot chocolate afterwards (well we had to check out where to find the best morning tea around here), I did the pantry and tried to pretend I was the organised housewife and put food […]

and we have moved


But if you’re on my facebook or instagram then you probably already knew that. Here is the very first picture I took once we had settled and we were killing time waiting for the keys. It is quite a change from our little suburban block where the play area was cement and gated in…..and I’m […]

My Darling Lemon Thyme – Recipes from my real food kitchen


I’ve been running a little low on enthusiasm to get into the kitchen lately. Exhaustion from moving and growing a baby and just all the day to day jobs I have to do mean that I’ve been finding it hard to get excited about cooking……..and especially because I also have to keep our dinners gluten […]

It’s been 9 1/2 years since my own wedding but I still love and appreciate all of the little details that make a wedding day. And I just love sharing in someone’s special day especially when it’s family and you remember the groom when he was a little kid. Yesterday my cousin Anthony married his […]

19 weeks and doing well


I think there is probably a misconception that the more babies you have the easier it gets. In some ways it’s easier and you know what to expect but if there is one thing that never changes for me or gets easier it is the worry. The nerves. The things that can go wrong. And […]

sentimental when moving house


Do you get sentimental and attached to your houses? Thinking of all the memories and things that happened in a house when it’s time to leave. I do. I’m hopeless like that. The very first flat we bought was where we lived after we got married, I’d bake for the office and knit before I […]
