This week...

I was surprised to find out both my older kids qualified for shot put in the zone inter school sports representing their school.

And my eldest son has been chosen to represent his school for rugby union.

My youngest son went for his 4 year old check up and was supposed to get vaccinated but got a script for an ear infection instead.

The doctor tells me he should be able to draw a detailed picture of himself but all he can manage is a scribble. will have to work on that! His gross motor skills are normal.

I have ordered some cotton yarn from bendigo mills and while i wait for it's arrival I made...

rhubarb & lemon cordial, just improvised on this recipe a little by adding citric acid. So delish, and I made mini rhubarb muffins using the left over pulp from the cordial.

Made a drink bottle holder for my cousin who moved to Virginia, USA this year. I made her son one for his birthday earlier this year and she has been 'borrowing' it from him. So now she can give it back!

Inspired by the lovely Pip Lincoln and her yellow box project

portion controlled devil's food cake :)

And this is what I'm working on, it's going to be a pencil case for a mermaid fan's birthday.
will post more on this later.

Enjoy your weekend, ours will be spent cleaning up the garden on Saturday and dusting and cleaning walls on Sunday. Who wants to come to my place?


  1. You know, for what it's worth, I don't think any of mine have been able to draw a 'detailed' picture of themselves by 4, my middle guy wouldn't even pick up a pencil till then, not the least bit interested! Love your drink bottle holder. Have a great weekend...

  2. Congratulations on the sporty children, yahoo!! My girls did well in shot put which is hilarious as they have such skinny arms. It's technique i have been assured!! Good luck with watching your precious big boy play rough rugby, hang in there, i don't think i could watch my boy, nooooo . . . love Posie
