 42! According to Douglas Adams it is "The Answer to Life the Universe and Everything".
 I'm still waiting for some enlightenment but in the mean time I enjoyed my birthday all the same. Afternoon tea and cake with my three boys and then dinner out with Aussie Dad. A lovely birthday.

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all mums out there! Hope you are having a lovely day.
 My mothers day started early this year. We all went out for breakfast on Saturday morning to beat the crowds on Sunday. A lovely meal at the Naked Fig in Swanbourne followed by a walk along the beach.
 This morning I had a lie-in (the best present ever) and then was presented with some lovely flowers ...
 ... and breakfast on the patio. 
The weather was gorgeous so we opted for a walk and play at the river. Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Autumn leaf crowns

It is starting to feel very autumn like now in Perth so the boys and I have been doing a bit of autumn craft. 
We gathered a bowl full of gorgeous autumn leaves and with a few strips of cardboard and a stapler we made a some Autumn crowns.
Puggles turned out like bunny ears...
.. and even Jack Dog has a new crown!

Belated weekending

Sorry for my absence - I have been trying to locate a camera cable which a certain three year old had taken off my desk and hidden! Eventually he showed me where it was so I have finally been able to download some photos from last weekend. It started with a quick trip to our local famers market to stock up on fruit and veg (and some sweet daffodils which Rascal couldn't resist).
Then I had to try these gorgeous French Breakfast Puffs which I saw recently at Salt and Chocolate.
 They were a delicious start to the weekend - though Rascal just seemed to like the cinnamon sugar on top!
The the boys helped Aussie Dad build a wall around a garden bed out the back (we may even get lawn back in here one day!).
And on Sunday there was a little bit  of Autumn crafting for my little boys. Hope you had a nice weekend and week!
