After we've completed a house, it's amazing how many people say "Isn't it great how it all came together!"... as if by accident. This is a very small look into how it all "comes together".

My kids just love Camping!
5 minutes after we arrived, 
my son (8) had brought a 1metre long dead eel to the campsite.
Half an hour later, he returned wearing this

A cow pelvis makes great headwear!
And yes, we did have to bring it home with us.
Along with a few vertebrae and a snake skin.

The Property (belonging to my husbands' family) 
is beautiful and has creeks and waterfalls.
It is in the Hinterland north of Maleny.

We were lucky to have perfect camping weather
How beautiful has this weather been?!
After a depressing, wet summer we are now experiencing 
beautiful weather.

Our evenings were spent around the fire.
The kids toasted Marshmallows
and my son, wrong place wrong time 
had a burning glow stick land onto his arm and melt into his skin!

He's had a de-tipped finger, a broken collarbone,
Septicemia, a hernia operation & numerous other ailments & injuries,
so what's a 3rd degree burn??
I was furious with the 12 year old who flicked it on his arm!!!!

Despite the injury, we all had a ball

We returned home to find some colour in our garden too!

My project over the next few weeks is to
complete our little courtyard. 
Vertical Garden, Pots & Plants, etc.
It's only a small area but it can be seen from the kitchen,
living and dining rooms.

Any ideas from you creative people 
would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter

We saw these little bundles of cuteness
being sold at a shopping centre near Sydney.
My kids and I were devastated 
that we couldn't bring 1 or 2 home with us.

Unfortunately Queensland doesn't allow 
such adorable pets.

I had to prize these ones from Billie & Maggie!

What are your plans for Easter?
We are going camping in the Hinterland
between Maleny & Montville.

I'll take some photos of the tent as I know you'll
be super jealous of the luxurious accomodation.

The kids will build bonfires, toast marshmallows,
kill cane toads, swim in the creek and get filthy dirty
just as kids should.
There will be a ban on all things electronic.

I'm sure there'll be much chocolate & wine consumed.
Let's hope for all our sakes that the weather stays beautiful.

I'm packing my new Gumboots

I've traded in my X5 for a Mini Countryman like this

It should arrive in a few weeks (I can't wait!!)

It's stage one of project downsize!

Whatever you are doing
Stay Safe, Enjoy time with your loved ones
and eat plenty of Chocolate
I want no talk of Calories or post Easter guilt please!!
