Have you seen my cucumber?



I've been admiring the greenery of our vegie 'bath'.
In actual fact it's an old iron bath that hubby filled with dirt and I've been pottering about trying to see if I can't grow something .... anything... without killing it.
I wasn't successful last year but I am trying harder this time around. I've even detected what the weeds look like and pick them out daily.

While the kids were at day care I planted whatever seeds I had on hand.
You can see tomato trees above. I am thinking about re-potting them individually so I can stake them. They are looking pretty healthy but whether or not they fruit is the big question.



That's a cucumber plant in the corner. I had picked up a pot from Franklins (of all places) as I was curious. I split it and they were looking good until one of them decided to stop growing.



But lookey here! My pride and joy. See that cucumber?! It sprouted and grew and grew!
Hubby hasn't seen it since it was a wee one but he's going to be mighty impressed! Or jealous : )




This is the plant tht won't be killed by me. My ever loyal Gerbera pot.
Each year it sits out in the full sun with grass and weeds and I hardly give it a drink, yet every spring it grows plentiful happy fuschia gerberas for me. What a best friend, lol.


These are my snow pea sprouts from above. They are lovely and high and cling onto watever is growing around them. I can't wait to see if they grow something edible too.


So my news, dear friends, is that I am also sprouting something inside me.
I am about 10weeks pregnant with our fourth, yes, 4th baby.
To be honest I wasn't planning on another so soon but it was destined and I am going smooth sailing so far. A bit of nausea but mostly some tiredness. I am happy at least to have our last child baking and then concentrate on raising the best children that I can.

I log off now and thinking about making some little purses for my nieces for Christmas.
I hope you're doing some crafting too.


Cheers, Kim

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
