A Slice of Summer


This morning the Doctor and I set to baking some ANZAC biscuits. Instead, because I was distracted by the phone, it turned into an ANZAC slice that got covered in chocolate. A freak accident. I never saw it happening, completely blind-sighted. Ahem. The results. A little too delicious. And with a piping hot cup of tea - a little too completely delicious.

Next blog post may be titled: I Am The Christmas Pudding (look out for me with the sprig of holly shoved in my hair - and let's not forget the flaming brandy).

Please excuse my shoddy photos. Someone very small may have grabbed the lens on Christmas day, and until I find the lens cleaning cloth, it's smudgy. Or we could call it 'soft focus'. Something I'd use on myself as I age ever so gracefully.

Anyway. It's stinking hot. The Doctor has been for a swim with his aunty. Tiny is teething with one heck of a molar poking it's sharp, fierce head through. Makes for bad sleeps. And a slightly cranky mama.

At least I feel as though I'm on holidays. All this heat. It just makes me think, even if it's house work, it's kind of relaxed. No work at the moment. No client phone calls. Just me and the smalls kicking back summer stylie.

How's your day?

It's a pretty easy summer livin' over here!

Swims every morning at the local pool, movies this afternoon and some sewing in between.

Perfect!

It's cold here! I am wearing a jumper and contemplating lighting a fire - perfect!

Could do with a piece of chocolate anzac slice though....

A such a good day for a swim...
That anzac mix up looks great. Sometimes mistakes turn out to be the best..xxx

I love that your child has an inherent need to coat in chocolate. Great job Doctor!

Stinking hot over here too. It's only 9am and I think we must already be at 30C. It does slow you down...
we have a little water-world going on in the backyard, a wading pool with a sprinkler thingy connected to a playgym! that's keeping kiddo happy.
