The week that was

Unbelievably it was a week of great weather. It was also the week I got back into my (revised) routine as it was a fairly normal, quiet week.

It was the week I got my new phone… isn’t she cute?

and a cookbook stand (since my beautiful glass butterfly one finally broke)….

It was the week I found this huge butterfly in the garden – he seemed to be a bit stuck but eventually flew away…

It was the week I admired Coles new Organic fruit and veg section – then realized everything was packaged in plastic and on foam trays:-(.

and with the warm weather it was definitely the week for fresh fruit. I started making up a huge tray for the girls and I (and any friends) to munch on over the afternoon….

It was the week Amy went to a Halloween Party dressed as an Emo (depressed Goth for those of you like me who have no idea what an Emo is)….

    Love the fresh fruit platter. I saw a photo on a blog (yes I should have pinned it but I am not yet in the habit) and they served the wedges of watermelon like you have but you push a paddlepop stick into the rind so you can eat it like an ice block. Such a great idea and you know kids will eat anything thats a bit fun (not that my kids have ever turned down watermelon!)

    When I read the description of Amy’s outfit I actually read “ELMO” and when I scrolled down I was very confused LOL Then I read it again 🙂

    Hi again Libby…I turned my brain on and checked my history for the blog (duh!) and I pinned the photo I was talking about.
