One Of Those Weeks

It's been "one of those" weeks.. constant rain, testing children, unexpected challenges, and copping the brunt of other people's impatience and rudenes..nothing life shattering, just enough to push me to my limits, but nothing a little chocolate (most of a block) couldn't fix!

I'm so grateful to have lovely girlfriends to vent with and to help get my mind off things, amazing what a cuppa and a change of scenery can do!

Grateful for a husband who just takes over when I have "nothing left in the tank", and literally collapse on the couch.  This is rare for me, but it happened this week, everything caught up with me!

I'm grateful for the weekend too..there are no plans in schedules to follow or places to be..I'm hoping to sneak in a little "me time", and maybe a change of scenery with a day trip (no point waiting for the rain to stop, looks like its hanging around for a while).

What are you grateful for this week?

Joining in (it's been a while) with Maxabella over at 52 Weeks of Grateful.

What We've Been Up To Lately

What we've been up to lately..

It's been a while since I posted anything..what a busy few weeks we've had..

We've settled back into the school routine, yep third week down already! And I've started as playgroup leader one morning a week, which is quite demanding, but rewarding. Man, I feel as though I work fulltime, ..managing to keep things flowing for now..but we'll see how long it lasts, he he!

Baking cheesecake for hubby's birthday, of course not without setting the oven on fire!..and then putting it out quicksmart..with a cupful of sand (somebody later suggested a wet teatowel would have worked too, and probably a lot easier to clean up, but hey, whatever works at the time right?). Anyway, the cheesecake turned out perfect in the end, as it happened, I learned you can pull it out of the oven 3 times, and it makes no difference!  Think I'll make more cheesecakes - Yum!

Oh, and let's not forget that we're getting ready for our very first market..that's right..The Mummy Tree Markets - Chic Inspired Unique..can't wait..there's still so much still to organise, and only one week to go!  Here are the details if you happen to be in Brisbane next Saturday and are looking for a nice afternoon out.

It will be a fantastic afternoon of shopping and family fun, and our stall will be in the undercover area.  I'm looking forward to showing off some beautiful locally made and designed wares, meeting lots of lovely people and doing a little shopping myself.  

How do you like to shop?  Online, markets, large shopping centres, locally?
