Decor chat during ballet class

Hi there all you great readers. I've been missing in action the last while due to us deciding to renovate / redecorate our kitchen and our daughters bedroom. Then while this is happening i also attended a photography workshop and school has gone back so i've just been rushing from place to place. Trying not to be late for things and trying to squeeze everything in. When we have any spare time we are covered in paint and saw dust trying to get the kitchen and room finished! Half my daughters room and pieces of the kitchen are in the lounge making everything chaotic. So everything is still not finished! I've been so inspired by some of the home decor blogs out there. There are so many talented people out there and i'm so glad they decided to blog about how they decorate their homes. It has really helped me with some of my paint choices and layout ideas and just inspiration in general. So thank you all you great decor bloggers. Well i do have some great recipes to blog about but as i type this from my cellphone while sitting waiting for my daughter during ballet class i don't have any of then with me. Maybe i'll get it right next time. Have a great day.

I feel the need to bake something

You would think after the Easter weekend and all that chocolate that I would be sworn off sweet food but today I feel the need to cook/ be creative so I think maybe I'll bake with my daughter. With all the cooking blogs I read there is no wonder I feel like cooking all the time - they have me drooling in front of my computer screen daily. I think we'll go whip something up right now.

how is your thursday going?

P.S. Feel free to send me pics of your creations and prehaps I can put some of your delicious goodies you made up on my blog (don't forget to send the recipe).

Well happy Monday - umm errr Tuesday :)  Being the long weekend and having monday off my brain thinks it's monday when it's actually tuesday (ha ha ha silly me) I keep thinking tomorrow is tuesday when it is actually wednesday. Pretty sure the rest of the week is going to go like that which is great cause when it gets to friday - which will feel like thursday the weekend will have come early - what a nice surprise it will be for my brain :)  It is funny how our bodies get into rhythms and certain circumstances make you feel differently. Anyway Easter was lovely and great to see friends and family and relax and eat ...... wait for it.... CHOCOLATE :)

We (my daughter and I) did try make our own easter eggs and I thought I had this bright idea - we blew out the inside of the eggs and washed them out, let them dry and then filled them with melted chocolate and let them set so we had solid easter eggs in a real egg shell which then you crack open with a spoon and inside is a solid chocolate egg. It kind of worked but the filling of the melted chocolate took way to long and you couldn't see if it was full so i gave up after 2 eggs. but it was kind of fun!

We also made an easter tree :) which was fun. Which we got the free printable eggs and bunnie pictures from Spagat a really cool blog. We had lots of fun making it and I think it came out really nice.

In all we had a very creative and relxing Easter - hope you did too
