This moment - (a day late) Balancing

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

These are a few of our favourite things

These are a few of our current favourites for simple play....
Rascal is loving these big, fat, liquid chalk pens - nice bright colours and so easy to use on the black board, windows or black paper (plus no chalky fingers for those littles who don't like icky fingers!) ...
bubbles ...  a perennial favourite  .....
  ...  and of coarse playdough. These garden printable are perfect for creating our own little garden with a bit of green play dough.
What are your current favoirte simple play ideas?

Bali Bali

Where has the year gone? It is May already and I haven't visited this space for a long time. There are various reasons - so much to do and so little time, hubby's parents have both been quite ill which has taken up a lot of his time over the past 6 months, and then I have just got out of the habit and I'm so far behind I don't know what to blog about now.
But enough excuses. We have just got back from a lovely family holiday to Bali so I will simply let you enjoy a few photos.
It was our first overseas holiday as a family so Bali was a relatively easy option. Only a few hours flying time, same time zone and easy family accommodation when we got there.
We didn't do too much sight seeing and we spent most of our holiday hanging out by the pool but it was very relaxing.
Apart from me getting an ear infection no one got sick ... which always makes a holiday much more enjoyable.
 I hope to be back with you again soon. Fingers crossed!
