Friday, May 11

Can I just start by saying thank you.  Thank you for being so kind and supportive about my feelings on my last post.  I knew it was time to take a bit of time away and just get my head in a better place when it came to blogging. In the end I'm responsible for my feelings so that break really gave me time to just focus on the things I really enjoy doing, knowing that I am more content within myself. I just wanted to say I don't want anyone to feel like they have to comment on my blog and I am so very sorry if it came across that way it was never my intention to make anyone feel guilty for not commenting.  I totally understand how busy everyone is so I am grateful for any time you may have to say hi when ever you want and if you want, I just wanted to let you know.

I've been doing things like hanging out with my nephews who came over for their first sleepover, playing lots of games of playdough.
going for a drive to the scenic rim going to a gorgeous lookout at Mt French with views of the Main Range and then a stop by Wyaralong Dam which gave me a few more photographic opportunities of nature and my fun family.
I've been in the kitchen making, biscuits for lunch boxes that always need filling,
tried my hand at some homemade ricotta cheese using this recipe
and baked some bread to go with cauliflower soup for dinner.
 Some seeds have started to sprout, anyone for lots of silver beet and zucchini?
And enjoyed a light show put on by my youngest, there was singing involved too.
Have you had a good week?

  4. There is so much amazing natural beauty in Australia and your pics have captured the mountain range there beautifully................ what incredible views.

    My eldest daughter is coming to visit for the weekend so we will spend time cosy in front of the open fire talking for hours, catching up..............
    Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day.X

  8. Now, that is so strange. The font was large when I read the post. Now I've posted my comment, it's reverted to the smaller format. Curious! J x
