Time out with Bakers Delight

It's school holidays again. Gah. Two weeks of your kids incessantly asking "What are we doing today? Where are we going?" So if you're organised you would have booked your restless kids into some fun-filled activities with other restless, sugar driven bouncy kids who are screaming for some action. It means basically no time-out for yourself. This is where Bakers Delight comes in to save the day.

Bakers Delight sent me some yummy scones from their selection. I recieved Chocolate Mud, Berry and White Choc, and Date. Just make a nice hot cup of tea, put on a movie for the kids (or put the babies to sleep) and I enjoyed those few precious moments to myself to recollect thoughts in my head. I must say that Chocolate mud was the first to be enjoyed in our household. It's our favourite as it's rich and has the best chocolate taste ever.

This is the date scone close-up. Personally I've never really liked anything related to dates/sultana's etc but it does taste nice. But I did give the rest of the date scones to my elderly neighbours next door along with some berry scones. When I told him I had scones he initially didn't understand me until he said "scohnz", you know, the proper Aussie way of saying it. Ha ha. Yeah, sconz. I hoped that the sconz would have perked them up a bit as his wife has Alzheimers so life for them right now is tough.
A close-up of the delicious Choc Mud. It's a little dense due to the addition of choc chips but when you've tasted it, there'll be no stopping you from finishing off the rest and hiding them from your kids. Just a warning.
This is the Berry Scone opened up. It was really nice and not too sweet. It has blueberries and white chocolate which is a perfect combination for your taste buds. They were nice and fluffy. Mmmmmm.

So thankyou Bakers Delight again. For making my day. For reminding me that time-out is not only good for me but good for the family. It also means I don't have any washing up to do!!! So go on and remember to pick up some scones when you pass your local Bakers Delight store. * find your nearest location here *
I hope you are all enjoying your holidays with the kids and it's only for a short time so enjoy it while you can. See ya!


  1. We say 'skonz' too round here too ha ha! What can I say, we're the Aussiest half Chinese family you'll ever meet!

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

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…

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…
