Christmas 2012

A camping Christmas
filthy children
friends (new and old)
and the (very) occasional bath

Tip shop wins

 On a recent trip to my favourite tip shop for more bird cages to protect our seedlings I also found this 'Riversdale Bobs' contraption (there is nearly always other things to find!) 
Tim remembers playing it growing up, apparently as a snooker-like game but it works 
just as well for marbles too.

The end of year whoosh is upon us....

The weekend was dominated by the school fair. Given how much effort went into it all (by everyone involved) all I could find on the camera was this photo of the herbs we picked from the garden. There were several late nights brewing up cumquat marmalade (fruit picked from our little tree and our other source). It's amazing how a rather small bunch of families manage to do so much, and it is nice to be part of it all.

The rest of the weekend passed in a more relaxed fashion, with kitchen bath-time

a new rider in the family

bush walks

Summer planting starting......I promise there are tiny tomato plants in there somewhere. The zucchini is not under house arrest just protected from the chooks and blackbirds.

and the start of this years bean crop, a teepee like structure that I hope will eventually be covered in beans not sheets off the kids bed!

A start....

The requests for dance class have been consistent for about 2 years now....perhaps I figured they would stop if it was just a phase. Mostly it has been my reluctance and low-grade horror when looking at the images on various dance forms/websites of little girls wearing excessive make-up. Now with a friend teaching a ballet class we have begun.

With much enthusiasm!

random pictures I find on our camera but missed in real life
