Things I'm Loving - At Home

Linking up with Kristy at PaisleyJade today for Things I'm Loving, so here we go.. 

I'm loving spending time at home with my little one. 
 I'm so grateful to be able to stay at home and look after her..
Playing with blocks and chatting
Pasting and making collages

Taking her to playgroup, she looks forward to it every week, and so do I.
Here I can relax a little, have a cuppa and a chat with other mums. 
There's plenty to keep her busy, and lots of other kids to interact with. 
 I was a little lost before I joined this group, now I've made some new friends and feel less isolated.  It took a little while to find the right playgroup, but I'm sticking with this one! 

Right now
my daughter is so little, but one day she'll be all grown up,
so I just hope she remembers hanging out with her mum.

I'm also loving seeing both of my little treasures playing happily together (at least sometimes) in the new space we've created in the spare room (it's neautral territory).

And lastly, we're all loving Donna Hay's Simple Lemon Cake (with sour cream). 
The recipe can be found in her Modern Classics Book 2. 

 Yum! It almost didn't make it into the oven, since the batter tasted like
lemon cheesecake (my favourite)!!
So moist and lemony, that it just didn't need any icing on top,
 just a sprinkle of icing sugar!

Hope your week has had plenty to love. 
 You can pop over here to find out what others are loving too!
