weekendiness

Sydney in October is a little bit gorgeous.  We explored a new park today – Ballast Point Park at Birchgrove. It has wind turbines! And lots of excellent rocks.  And apart from a massive number of sheer walls leading directly into the harbour, the views (above) were spectacular (photographed while […]

Beauty and the Beast giveaway!

Sponsored by Nuffnang I haven't done a sponsored post before because nothing that's been proposed was really right for me (or you.) This one, however, I could not turn down. Beauty and the Beast! My all-time favourite Disney animation! I've seen it a hundred times and I, er, may even […]

home economics

Dal, I find, is quite divisive. People either get it or they don't. A bit like IKEA.  I love love love dal. Even before vegetarianism, I'd wheel this one out regularly. Luckily I've got number one son on board so I can make it more than twice a year even […]

festive

:: Celebrating sweet small person moving from not feeding, needing to be constantly carried and very obviously utterly miserable to small sweet person with a headcold. I think she may have had a dreadful sore throat yesterday, today she's just snotty but peaceful. And feeding. (Important in a Walmsley.) :: […]
