Did That Just Happen?

Never in my life has time moved so fast as it did last weekend.

From Thursday family began to arrive and by Friday afternoon we were all here! That's 13 of us in total!!!

Time went by so fast, after two park trips, lots of naps, nappy changes, and a mountain of food it was Monday before I knew and half of my beautiful family had already left and the others were due to leave that day :(

The two little people got along brilliantly, and by geez when they're just a little bit older I think they'll get up to mischief whenever they're together.

Meal plan? what Meal plan? Any plans I had made at the beginning of the fortnight were quickly shoved out the window. Before everyone got here I was too busy planning their arrival to follow a plan...and after they left I was too buggered! So we've just pulled something together from what we have and now lo & behold it's bloody shopping day again!!!

I have my work cut out for me with no meal plan for the coming two weeks as yet and a pantry & fridge that need a good sorting out! But I will persevere and succeed!! Stay tuned for what I come up with!!

p.s. I can't decide who I want to win Masterchef...but boy I was really pleased when Kate beat Alana!!

Moving Up in the Tech World...& Sewing...

Yesterday I became the new, and admittedly pretty proud, owner of a brand new Ultrabook. In my eyes, the Microsoft equivalent to a MacBook. But that's to a layman like me. In reality I'm sure I am way off.

I have an iPad and I love it, but for what I wanted the MacBook's were just too much of a financial investment. So I went on the hunt for something speedy (to handle my photos), something light (to carry around the house) and something smallish (to sit on my lap). AND it had to be within budget, and look okay too.

Two visits to Harvey Norman later - we have changed our HN of choice for purchases after receiving lackluster service at our original preferred store. And I walked out happy as a pig in the proverbial with a Toshiba Ultrabook - 4gb ram, 32mb SSD, 13.3 inch screen, and Windows 8! (But no touch screen)

Windows 8 is a trip. Everything has an app, so it's like your ipad, on a computer. But the standard desktop and Windows set up is running in the background - acc…

Be Yourself.

Heard this for the first time yesterday... it made me smile. Be yourself.

Taco Tuesday, Bunday Monday, Sunday Roast.

And so the list goes!
Many would be familiar with Taco Tuesday, and a definitive Aussie culture is the Sunday Roast.
My 6 year old last week coined Bunday Monday! This means on Mondays we eat buns with various fillings.
Week 1 was YIAH slow cooked pulled pork with homemade coleslaw, on brioche.
Week 2 was YIAH La Parissiene meat patties with salad - essentially a hamburger - on tiger buns.
It's not fancy, it only classifies as healthy because it's homemade and comes with salad but the most important thing about all of it is my 6 year old son is involved in the process.
He named the funny meal day after working to find a word that rhymes with Monday, he has chosen the bread rolls each week and as a result is keen to eat what's in them. 
Anyone with a six year old will understand the magnitude of a new food item being added to the revolving repertoire at this age. 
So If Bunday Monday means cucumber and lettuce being eaten, roll on next Monday!
