family business


Some days my family drives me nuts. NUTS.

And some days (more days) I marvel at them, wondering how I struck it so lucky. (Adam will tell you it wasn't luck, it was my little black singlet. I don't remember it. I was dreadfully hungover the day I met him.)




My Mum showed up in the commercial kitchen today, where I was slogging away on my own, right at the moment I was about to keel over. She counted biscuits and cleaned up for me. So awesome.




I smell like a biscuit and there's caramel stuck to my knuckles. (Buena Vista Farm Bikkies will be at Gerringong markets this Saturday if you're in the area. Come and nibble a sample!)

And before I fall asleep at this desk, I just wanted to take a moment to be grateful for family. 

I hope you have one that you like.

What a sweet post and what adorable pictures!
You’re right, you can never be too grateful for your family.

What a gift you have (gorgeous photos, great writing, and most importantly family). Was it you or Adam in the black singlet?

Hi Maggie,
Just a curious question: how did you come across this blog? I just notice that you live a stone’s throw from where Fi’s brother (also mine) was living until recently (Staunton)?? Is that just totally wild coincidence or was our beautiful sister-in-law involved??

Staunton is just 20 miles up the first big hills into the Blue Ridges Mountains.

I go at the least once every 2 weeks. The scenery is beautiful.

I do not remember how I started following your blog (I clicked on something and liked what I read) but it has been at the least 6 + months. My daughter is also a follower.

We have traveled to N Z and Aus. and enjoyed it so very much.

Your writing is descriptive, entertaining, and NOT ego driven.

Best of luck on your “biscuit” enterprise.

Hi Maggie,
Apologies that I wasn’t very clear before. This is SB (Fiona’s sister). Fi is the blogger and the one deserving of your praise. I’m one of the sisters she mentions occasionally – usually at some point when we are laughing a little rudely at her 🙂 I just couldn’t believe the coincidence of where you live being so close to our brother and his wife! Incredible in this big wide world where we live! And just for the record, Fi has always had a gift for writing, even back in high school. She is quite brilliant!
