#304 All’s well…

That ends well 🙂 Surgery was a success and the patient is fast asleep. I’m not far behind and wish you well, until tomorrow night. xo

#303 Early Start

I need to be up at 4.30am to get one of the womb fruits to the children’s hospital for 6.30am. His surgery is tomorrow. He’s been a little anxious but is feeling alright about it now. He needs surgery on his right foot and because he has the same problem in his left foot, he…

#302 Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…

I’m referring to a recipe for fish curry 🙂 I know I’ll find one eventually. I got distracted in my search and I’ve been revisiting an interest in food history. This interest began in earnest about five years ago when I was looking for recipes from the depression, that lead to recipes from wartime when…

#301 Recipe Hunting

This evening I have been searching for a recipe for fish curry. Fish is something I shy away from cooking and because of that, I lack experience in both selecting fish fish and preparing it. Don’t get me wrong, I have pan fried delicious skinless salmon fillets and I’m good at preparing and cooking prawns…

#300 Sunday all day :)

Day 300! I can hardly believe it!! I’m starting to think about planning for my Christmas shopping. I love thinking about gifts for each person and what we will have to eat. Can’t wait to see my Mama. That’s actually the best part 🙂 Today was lovely. Lots of good conversations and smiles and I…

#299 Reprieve

I’m headed to bed early and looking forward to a sweet sleep 🙂 Not much to tell tonight and that’s okay. Hang on though I do have some new finds from YouTube that are quite entertaining. Most of them are old instructional or informative programs from television. Some are from England and some from America….

#298 Love and more love, actually.

This evening my post is inspired by the little Snoopy plushie my youngest perched on the end of our bed. Love. Reaffirming that life is about love. The purpose of my life is love. xo Happy Weekend 🙂

#297 Big Day Out!

Today we spent much of our day out at the Aquarium. It’s called AQWA, or the Aquarium of Western Australia. The kids love it and so do we 🙂 I felt like everyone could use a fun outing so I surprised everyone with the suggestion and off we went. We stopped for lunch on the…

#296 Something different.

Tonight I decided to get a little creative in the kitchen. I made an Uzbek dish called Plov for the first time. I was mostly happy with the result, though next time I’ll know to amp up the garlic and spices to my own palate 🙂 I will also part cook my rice too. It’s…

#295 Getting it wrong.

What does it mean if your making more mistakes then usual, getting grumpy and irritated more than you like? Ugh…this is me today. I haven’t been my self. What’s worse is then feeling bad for being irritable or short-tempered with the people I love the most 😦 Something is missing and I realise that I…
