Dry Brush + Dry Ice

Playing with colour today. Some small #acryliconcanvas #paintings . Loving the colours.

Playing with #dryice dish washing liquid and water. So much fun!!!!
The morning was spent having fun with L and his Uncle while they were playing (safely) with dry ice. His Uncle is a school teacher, he had so many experiments for them to do, I had plans to do other things while they were hanging out, but they were having so much fun, I had to join in. I did manage to paint for quite a few hours while they went to the beach for a swim. I felt like I needed to just sit and play with colour, I tried the dry brush effect, I am really liking it.

A Day by the Harbour

Pirates in Sydney Harbour. Aaaarrrrr.
Today's beautiful views. Oh, what a day!!!

We had a beauty of a day today in Sydney. My SIL is here for a few days, so we always fit as much as we can into the time that she is up here. Today was spent at Bradley's Head, just near Taronga Zoo. Almost all of N's immediate family came, we had a lovely picnic by the harbour, that is until Little R and I got bitten by fire ants!

A Quick MCA Visit


I ducked into the MCA today to have a little look as I was passing by. I love it in there, it's just so inspiring every time I walk through the door. I LOVE the new modern extension, it makes our harbor better. Way cool!

We had a few little visitors up on our back deck this afternoon. They were ever so cute and fluffy and unfortunately a long walk from the lake. We tried to catch them, the boys and I, but they were SO quick. They were making their way up the hill behind us for some strange reason. We don't know what happened to them or where they went, but we hope some kind person rescued them and took them back down to the lake.

Happy 8th Birthday L!

He has grown so fast, he is one of the tallest in his Grade at school, he loves to read, more than anyone I know. He is clever at science, music and maths. He tells me he doesn't really like school unless he is doing those particular subjects. He is a bit uncoordinated, but tries as hard as he can at everything he does. He never gets embarrassed, I guess that is yet to come. He is a bit obsessed with video games on the iPad, and doesn't listen to a word I say, but I love him anyway. He has a kind heart and calls himself a "friend of nature". He is very sweet most of the time, we all get grumpy sometimes. How the years have flown my beautiful boy! I hope today is everything you hoped it would be. Happy 8th Birthday buddy, I love you forever!

An 8 Year Old!

Somebody is turning 8 tomorrow! An early celebration with @pemso5 .

Whipped up a batch of cupcakes for L's class to celebrate his birthday. Not so pretty but very tasty. Vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting and 100's & 1000's. Hope they taste ok.
Last night we had an early celebration for my big boy's 8th birthday. We ate pizza and a delicious dessert made by my lovely friend. I took a banana cake with us to celebrate his birthday. It was a really casual, fun evening.

Can it get any better?

After a trip to the hairdresser, to get my hair chopped off, I stopped by the beach, my car was parked right next to it. I snapped a few Instagram pics of our beautiful day. My head is feeling as light as a feather!

Loving my new spring 'do'.
A new hairdo!
Perfect day!
