Gingerbread Buckwheat Pancakes

As I sniffle into yet another tissue this morning,  I am both nostalgic for the weekend we made these beautiful, warming little winter breakfast pikelets and yearning for next week when I step out of the plane into the welcoming warmth of the Bali sun. Winter gives me all the feels. Made a Veggie Mama recipe for yourself? I’d love…

A little trip to Bendigo Woollen Mills (and THAT vanilla slice!)

I love Bendigo – I go there every chance I get, and I make up any reason to go. That reason is usually that my yarn stash desperately needs something from the Woollen Mills, but we all know that’s a lie. I DO need it though. Honest. Have you been? I used to go there a lot when I was…

The Dusty Bookshelf Challenge – Level: Fail

Along with 95% of the population, I’m struggling to understand how it’s April already and the year has gone so fast. What happened? Did I fall through one of these? Can it stop? The challenge of finally reading the books I’ve collected over the years is like, a quarter over and I’ve had a very slow start. I blame it…

The story of the 12 towels

The other day I was reading this post by Brooke at Slow Your Home. I had just donated the bulk of our towels to our day care centre, who had specifically requested them. But it was one of those things I’d never thought to donate because towels are useful, you know? They’re not dust-gathering trinkets. And while we didn’t even…

These are the Golden Days

The other day I was buying one of Smalls’s birthday presents, and I couldn’t resist getting myself a little something too. This These are the Golden Days print sums up pretty much exactly how I feel about parenting my two- and three-year-old right now. They are hilarious. And totally adorable. One serious, verbose, sensitive, kind, and completely incapable of having…

Just Ace

A few things I think are just ace lately. With apologies to Grinspoon. Sooooo nobody told me that pyjamas that feature leggings are far superior to baggy trousers (not these baggy trousers though, just so you know). I bought a set from H&M and was so disappointed when I put them on and found them rather legging-like. Then when I…
