The Week That Was

With all our travels it’s been a while since I did one of these posts. I do enjoy them as a way to share random photos or photos taken for my Project Life album. This week we returned home from our fabulous long weekend in Canberra, with no intention of leaving for another 5.5 weeks.

There were beautiful fresh flowers to be enjoyed….


There was a very sad looking chicken (vet said it was just excessive malting)…


There were pups to be played with…and photographed being cute…


There were friends to play Masterchef with… wedges and scones were made and enjoyed…


There was, of course, the Royal Wedding, to watch on Friday night. Amy only watched a little of the actual ceremony with us. I watched the BBC coverage from 5pm until after the kiss. Christy surprised me by watching the whole ceremony. She loved knowing she had stood at the gates of Buckingham palace last year


And insisted on staying up until they kissed – she JUST made it.


There was  a new chicken house bought and assembled…



Just a bit of an improvement don’t you think? The old one was really falling apart.


For those who think the Prius is a small car… just look what it can hold…


There was an exercise bike delivered and new desk put into the spare room.


Love it. Will use it for sewing, doing household accounts, wrapping presents,etc. Just need to tidy the rest of the room now :-).


There were also new chairs for the scrapbook room… looks nice and co-ordinated now…


There was  a VERY rich and decadent chocolate cake made by…. wait for it…. Kevin !!!!


There was art done by the girls…


And there was a new headband worn by me…


It’s been nice being back home, and getting back into our normal routines. Unfortunately I’ve really been suffering with swollen hands and feet (going to Docs tomorrow) and my heel spur is bad again so I’m just trying to get my house back in order as I can. It’s going to be a bit of slow, and frustrating, process :-(.

    Hi Lib, the cake looks delicious. Maybe Kevin could post the recipe on his blog 🙂 If not could you send it to me please. You know how I love mud cake 🙂

    It was actually a packet mix for a dairy free chocolate cake. Of course he choose to make the icing – which was made purely of butter and a HUGE block of chocolate …. making it a non-dairy free cake :-).

    Can I ask where you got your chook cage from? We are thinking of changing the avairy into one, but it might be easier just to buy a kitset.
