My BIG canvas arrived – yay! Not sure if it will stay here above the table but for now I’m just loving being able to see all the time. It’s just like having a massive photo stuck on your wall. I see more of these in my future – might turn the entire house into a massive gallery.
Did you know it was International Teachers Day last Friday? Well luckily the president of our local PFA did and rallied the troops to make morning tea. Dug out the never fail carrot cake recipe. It wins my award for the best dang recipe ever. Easy and never fails to impress. Just sucks that I’m no longer supposed to eat walnuts (because they stop the hypothyroidism medication from being absorbed). Will have to swap to pecan next time
A selfie of little pink and me doing the nightly bus stop. We’re pretty cute hey! Gets boring waiting for that school bus – so we usually end up playing on the camera. Excuse the water mark – decided long ago
never to walk in anyone’s shadow that any pics of the kids on here needed to either be water marked or non-identifiable. I know, it’s probably overkill, but it helps me sleep at night.
Like many other mums of pinks (and some blues) it’s ballet recital o’clock around here. This morning we headed off for the official photos – which means ballet hair. I love playing with the girls hair – but frankly I’m crap at doing the official bun. Gel, Gel and more Gel – that’s my motto. Two more rehearsals to go. Talking to the other mums today it became clear that seeing the photos of your kids all dressed up and looking so adorable kinda makes the whole ballet mum thing okay.
You know those nights when you just can’t face making tea? (Or maybe that just happens to me.) This is me making plastic cheese and tomato sauce and toasties for the girls for tea last night. A highly nutritious and balanced meal for growing girls – not! Yesterday was a great reminder that being perfect is not part of my parenting plan and frankly that’s just fine.
