Look – twice in one week – could I be making my comeback?
Friday already and October. What the hell is going on people? How can we be in October already? The weather is warming up and a couple of weeks ago the kids even had their first swim in the pool. Still to cold for me. I can’t wait until it warms up enough to go for a swim.
I have been making the most of my walks each morning.
Soon it will be too hot and I will have to use my treadmill again. Gee I have enjoyed this track, so peaceful.
The mail plane came yesterday with 5 esky’s worth of frozen goods. We were getting very low, so it was great to see. Here is a visual. Just a few bits and pieces really…
There wasn’t a ute handy so I had to squeeze it into nooks and unexplored crannies in the buggy. Managed to get it all in though.
The kids have been making the most of their last week of holidays. Tom went out trucking all day yesterday while Harry managed to drag himself off the lounge to go out with Mr Chardy all day – shock horror. We knew he would get bored so I suggested he take a book with him.
I packed the boys a lunch bag to take with all sorts of things in it (don’t worry, it wasn’t Pinterest worthy). Anyway, Clancy wanted to get in on the action and brought me out his lunch bag. So I packed him one too, even though he was just going to be hanging out with me all day in the kitchen.
Clancy loves to help out in the kitchen…
Last night we trotted out a favourite: Crumbed steak & potato bake with veg…
And I thought it was only right that I trot out a pavlova for dessert…
I don’t think you could get an easier dessert. This pav that I make is so simple: 4 egg whites and one cup of sugar! Seriously. Add a bit of whipped cream and fruit to the top and Bob’s your uncle. Yummy too. (This recipe if from The Common Sense Cookbook).
Now before we finish we must talk about The Batchelorette… who is your favourite? I think mine is still Sasha but I do have a soft spot for Michael – that soccer player! Isn’t he cute, looks all of about 18. I think Dave is in with a chance too.
How awkward was that group date they went on to the day spa thingy – I could hardly watch it. Seriously, those fella’s must have been a bit worried when she was rubbing that mud on them, they were probably getting all hot and bothered, poor buggers! So tell me – who do you love? Who is in and who is out? I am glad that musician has gone just quietly. Lovely bloke but don’t think he is right for Sam. Because I would know!
I think that is about all we have been up to over the past couple of days.
How have the school holidays been for you? Did you go anywhere exciting?
Are you looking forward to school going back? I know Mr Chardy is!
