As I typed this my ugly laundry is having a little makeover. (I can’t decide if the current look is late 70s or early 80s – what do you think?) This space is being transformed with a wall of storage draws and shelves. It’s going to make my life SO MUCH EASIER having good storage space again. Simply can’t wait for them to be finished. Unfortunately the stylish tiles and chick little bathroom will have to say ‘as is’ for a little longer. That, along with the horrible brown split windows, are the last vestige of what this place looked like when we moved in three years ago. Renovating with kids is a long hard road – and one I would never travel again.
This weeks selfie. I love taking shots like this of me and the kids in the car. Yesterday I was sitting in the middle seats of our 7 seater while we took Granny Pink on a birthday picnic and tour of our old stomping ground (aka the farm I grew up on the local community there abouts). Such a great day and some happy memories to look back on.
Instagram Tip: I hate chopping onions but love eating them in my meals. So, when ever I’m using my food processor I tend to end by sticking three or four onions in and blitzing them. I stick meal sized portions in snap lock bags and freeze them. (They freeze fabulously.) Then no more chopping up onions for the rest of the week. Gotta love that.
Flowers delivered to my door. Doesn’t happen much these days – but it sure puts a happy little skip in your step for the day. These ones were sent to me by Ferrero Boutique to celebrate their new arrivals (baby/new mother hampers). Aren’t they beautiful? I love Irises Appreciate you making my day Ferrero.
My beautiful blondie Pinks playing Geleeze. Like most little pink people my kids are obsessed with stickers. (I find them everywhere and may have on occasions been driven a little mad by them.) These Geleez are a bit more creative though as the kids have to colour them in themselves with the glow in the dark paint. And best of all, for me, they have a low level of stickiness – so you can remove them easily. (That’s what mama wants to hear:)
And just one last one for this week. My kitchen chairs seem to disappear regularly into the playroom so that they be imagination stationed into a car. (Big teddy looks like he might be off to a birthday party here.) Imagination is such a gift and I love watching the way they make things happen – even though I really wish they’d let me have my chairs back!
