One of the best things about growing your own food is when your friends do too.
You know what’s even better? When they pop round with their fresh pickings, especially when their pickings are as beautiful as rhubarb.
I must admit, the rhubarb had been sitting in the fridge for the last week while I contemplated what I could make with it. I wanted it to not just be delicious, it needed to look delicious and it also needed to be spectacular.
There’s a little glimpse of sunshine peeking through the windows and it tricked us into thinking it’s warmer than it is and forgetting that it’s only about 10C outside.
We popped outside to give the chickens our food scraps and quickly ran back in to get warm. On the plus side, one of them had just laid and the egg was toasty warm.
School went back today for another term and the silence in the house was pleasantly noticeable.
We made a fresh batch of playdoh and rolled it out, cut out shapes, made long sausages and tried to make balls.
Last days before school heads back for term 3 and I think we are all ready for us to get back into our routines.
We have had heaps of fun with library activities and also enjoyed a night at Disney on Ice thanks to Melbourne Mamma . It was the most magical experience and the kids just loved every moment.
Today has once again been one of those days with the little one. It feels like it has been raining for days on end and this day would just NOT end.
We have had every emotion possible from giggling silliness to anger to tears. SO many tears.
