This Week





This week I finally finished my mammoth read "The Count Of Monte Cristo", which I loved. I felt very lost without it, you know that's a sign of a good book. I needed something a bit lighter to read and decided on this one. I loved the film "Confessions of a Shopaholic" which was
based on this book, it has some similarities but is different enough to keep me interested.

I actually see a bit of me in this book, when I was younger. I had several shop cards and run them up to the max without little thought about having to pay the money back. Happy to say I've changed my ways.

I will get around to reading the books that other bloggers suggested, but I don't have them in my home library yet.

Apple and sultana cake another CWA recipe and a yummy one.



Ava has her plaster removed. Yay! But how do you tell a six year old she can't use the monkey bars for the next four weeks.







A stroll to the Fairfield Boathouse for afternoon tea, scones with lashings of cream.



My beach collections - driftwood



Ava's collections - stones


Sarah's collections - glass

What gorgeous girls you have....

They look close in age to mine.

It's such a delight to see them growing up. I try and make the weekends special for my girls. I remember looking forward to the weekends so much when I was young.

Glad the cast is off, how will you keep her off those monkeybars?

I've been slack with reading lately but now I wanna check out the book you just finished. Good luck keeping Ava off the monkeybars!

My daughter broke her arm on the monkey bars, going for third bar, she then broke it again whilst still in plaster at 5 and a bit weeks, so take it slow, after that she can go for gold.
love the nature finds.
I love the beach glass in particular

Reading is such a great way to unwind isn't it.
I like your recipes!!

You are three charming women and I love seeing the different collections. That Sarah is such a wise woman in disguise, but I see her. I am so glad Ava has her plaster off, the joy on her face said it all.
