So...Bits and Bobs

Just a few random photos taken over the last little while...

Evie playing dress up with her pup
 He wasn't phased at all and loved the attention
 I found this lovely old slow cooker crock pot while we were on holiday.  I've never used a slow cooker before so it's been fun trying it out, our bone broth, stew and chicken in it have all turned out delicious...I can see us using it a lot in winter!
 We visited with friends at the Botanical Gardens
 The tree whose shade we were sitting under had the most amazing coloured bark.
 Story time with some visitors
 A smile from my little bug
Pretty cloth bum...the nappy was a much appreciated gift from a friend.
 A yummy meal mainly from the garden, with the exception of the meat
Enjoying a splash in the hot weather

So...Flowers in the Garden

I've been snapping a few pictures around the garden recently because there have been so many beautiful flowers.  The camera just can't do them justice but here is a small bit of what is around.





 And all of this was harvested from the veggie garden for a meal I was preparing
 We have such beautiful rainbows here if we have late afternoon showers, I wish I had the right lenses to capture them properly.  This was a full double rainbow, both of them meeting the ground on both sides.
 We have the sweetest little tree frogs around, this one spent a day on the kitchen window which let us examine it's fingers, toes and belly closely
 And in other news we are renovating a little guest cottage, so far it has gotten new ceiling and light fixtures and some licks of paint, next up is plumbing in the shower, sink, kitchen sink and some tiling and hopefully we will be able to welcome visitors shortly!

So...catch up time...again

Yes I know...I am terrible with keeping up and now subsequently have a few zillion photos to sort out.

Here are a load from our lovely week away in November.  We had a fabulous time!

Holiday mode!
 We went to a water park and once courage was plucked up to try out the slides endless fun was had!








 Waiting...waiting...waiting...
 ...and SPLASH!


 The big one!

 We also had many great days on the beach.

 Someone loves rolling around in the waves






 Swimming under the bridge and to the waterfall


 #Bang wasn't too well the one day so we took it easy and built with duplo


 One last swim before home time!
