I feel like I have been hiding this last week, peeking a little into your lives yet not sharing any of my life with you.
Mothers day went by and I felt a little sad. A little part of me wanted my dad to see what a great mum I am or one that I hoped to be.
It’s strange but I just missed him so much, I thought I was dealing with the grief and all of a sudden it just came flooding back.
Sorry, I don’t have many words this week but I invite you for a cup of tea and a glimpse at a few things we’ve been up to
mother’s day heart pillow for my mum
mother’s day heart pillow for my little sis
toy picnic using vintage picnic set in a suitcase found on the nature strip
op shopping with my little guy
hanging out with my little assistant
making birthday cakes
Enjoy a cupcake and see you soon friends and if you feel like voting, please pop round here
was so jam packed that this week I just want it to be as boring as possible.
I know it’s not going to happen, but I can wish can’t I
last week was the last week of term and Easter happenings were all around
I baked some Easter gingerbread for the kids at school
I made an Easter bonnet for Amelie using a flower tutorial from here (I originally saw it on someone else’s blog but I cannot remember where, if it was yours please let me know)
I had an order for a 60th birthday cake which I absolutely loved making
gingerbread numbers and a chocolate layer cake
so this week, I intend on using the yummy homemade soap I received in the mail, thank you for the surprise sweet lady ♥
this week I am going to bake some naan bread from my new cookbook from the loveliest of friends (you are awesome) which I am absolutely loving
and this week we are going to enjoy the first week of school holidays and I will be smiling as I am SO proud that my girl got through her first term of prep, exhausted but filled with inspiration and willingness to keep on learning (love you baby girl ♥)
Whatever it is, I hope it’s filled with lots of giggles, hugs and love ♥
and if you want to laugh, pop by here as well
A lot has been going on here lately, the tears have finally stopped, the uncertainty about me leaving is still there but finally school is a happy place to be
The little man started his first day at kinder without hesitation and only a couple of tears whilst there.
It’s only 4 hours over a couple of days a week but it’s a new thing for him as well as for me and even though it sounds strange, I think I am really going to miss him
Miss Amelie turned 5 and celebrated in the garden with friends and family with yummy vegetarian pizzas, rose and red velvet cupcakes and chocolate cake
and whilst there is still some sunshine about, we enjoyed the sun and the water fountain at the Royal Botanic Gardens with lovely friends
I am a little bit baked out at the moment, but I promise to share the cake recipe because I have been told it was pretty yummy.
For now, I am off to enjoy the nice weather outside and hope the dishes don’t mind.
Hope your week is a happy one ♥
B i r t h d a y s
especially kid’s birthdays as the joy they show cannot be described, the look in their eyes, the smiles, *
the amazement, the surprise, the fact that they must touch everything
leftover cake (vegan chocolate & vanilla with fondant dinosaurs)
and waking up and realising daddy is home and then enjoying some precious scruffing together
Hope you’ve had a grateful kind of day, pop round to Ms Maxabella for some more gratefulness.
Enjoy your week lovely friends, old and new ♥
* edited to add that it was both of my nephews birthdays, not my little ones
a requested bee cake with fondant bees
and a paper mache beehive pinata (with lots of yarn)
and a reallly happy birthday boy with a knitted jumper from his great nanny
Hope your day is full of amazing creativity
Happy day to you ♥
