Salad for lunch…..again!

Saturday Love

Share the joy

Ethan is at a birthday party, there is nothing I HAVE to do right at this moment so I am listening to my favourite music loud {Modest Mouse, Built to Spill & Death Cab for Cutie, The Flaming Lips}, working on posts and trying not to check the time!  I have been looking forward to this little bit of ‘me’ time all week and it’s lovely.

New Laundry Cupboards

Loving our new jumbo laundry cupboards that are finally taking shape, can’t wait until this part of the house is finished and we can use all of our new storage.

Salad for lunch…..again!

I eat salad for lunch every day, not the same salad, I change it up, but I never get sick of it.  Lashings of mayo mixed with hot sauce, avo, egg, tomato, celery and tuna today.

Postcards from Dave

We received some postcards from Dave in the mail this week.  I bet the teacher had a laugh at the Frankfurt postcard when Ethan took them to school for news!  His trip has just been extended to well over 40 days now, Zurich after Paris and then home finally!  Can. Not. Wait.

Nectarine Blossoms

Mum bought this gorgeous nectarine tree for our yard, now every spring we will have beautiful blossoms like our neighbours!

Maths Certificates

After only two lessons at Number Works Ethan has received not one but two certificates in maths from School.  He has never received a maths certificate before.  Ever.

Amazing aye?  Just goes to show that it wasn’t anything other than confidence.  He didn’t think he could do it so he didn’t.  So proud of him.


I am LOVING this tip I found on pinterest.  To clean silver, line a bowl with tinfoil, add 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup baking soda, fill with hot water and soak silver for 30 minutes.  I have a metric shit-tonne of silver jewellery and this method cleaned the lot with ease!  Amazing.


Ethan no longer co-operates when I want to take 3 million pics so I have to be sneaky.  I’m having fun with this.

Backyard Fishing

Ethan Fishing

Saturday morning, 7.15 am.  The sun was shining.  It was time to fish for catfish.  He has never been a fan of Saturday morning cartoons that boy.

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful matter how simple it is.
