While we were on holidays


Oh the memories of the recent Easter/School Holiday Break brings me so much joy. It was magical, fun-filled, steady paced and enjoyable. We went to the show for the first-time (well for the kids anyway) and the kids loved it.

Look at that smile. Pure joy. Elijah was a bit scared at first but I held onto him and then as he got use to it he relaxed and enjoyed himself. You just have to go on the carousel when you're at The Show. The last day was great as it was Kids Day so rides were two for one until 5pm. Some Showbags ran out but we managed to get 3/4 that we wanted so it was great. I even got a bargain on the Womens Weekly bag as they ran out of stock but used the bags to put in spare items and sold it for $10. Awesome!


The older two kids attended the Nestle Active Healthy Kids session in the Food Farm. What a fantastic session which got a lot of kids cooking something healthy that they would eat themselves. My kids are use to rice paper rolls. We must have them at least once a week in the warm season. They were a bit wary of the apricots in the protein balls but they did try them.

Here is the lovely presenter who had done all of the sessions through the duration of the show and fed 2800 participants. Amazing job. Well done to her and her team.

Here are the kids next to the Super Slide (niece in the middle). I loved how the lights illuminated the darkness and everything felt so alive and magical. We didn't want the day to finish. It was perfect.

Now I'm trying to slide into the groove of things now that school has started and I'm back at work three days. My phone died so I was not contactable for a day (not fun). I'm still in the process of getting myself back up and running and with good friends who happen to have spare phones I am back on-line (but have lost some data etc etc.. go and back up your phone and contacts today!) Thankfully I did ask hubby to back up my pics from my phone last week so not all was lost.

We had (literally) torrential rain for three days. If you live in Sydney (see pic above) you know how bad it is. Rivers were overflowing, car parks and basements were flooding and our SES (State Emergency Service) volunteers had heaps of calls to attend to. Well done to them for their efforts. Today was the first day the sun shone down so I've got loads of washing to put out today.

I've got some fun giveaways coming up so please come back regularly to check them out and add me to your blogfeed ( I use Bloglovin').

See you soon peeps! xox

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…
