Ely's Bunting

How cool is this "Save the Date"
Back in March,
Ely sent me a message through my Madeit Store,
asking if I could make some Buntings for her wedding in Mexico.

The buntings were to say
"Sweet Love" and "Dulce Amor"
Ely requested yellow, white and mint,
to match the invitation above.

And this is what I came up with for Ely
"Dulce Amor"

And "Sweet Love"

Ely's and Dave's big day is later in the month,
this sounds like such a fun wedding - my type of wedding,
I hope they have a fantastic day - I'm sure they will.

I even made Ely a bag to keep her buntings in :)

And, while we are on weddings,
big one on today apparently,
(no request for buntings from Kate though! )
I've decided to play along with the other Facebook pages
and include a shot of me as a bride,
it's over on my
We eloped - very recommended by the way :)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Be Good,

In The Oven & Up The Ladder

It's my turn to say "Smell This!"
With 3 boys in the house - "smell this"
is a phrase I hear too often : /
These have just come out of my oven!
Cinnomon Rolls
The house smells delicious.
If you wish to make your own, the recipe is here

Outside, on this lovely day, the house is getting a wash,

9 years of dirt and grime are being removed

Lots of entertainment for the boy's, catching all the drips

I'm off to make a coffee and try a Cinnamon Roll.
Hope all is well at your nest

Take Care and Be Good

Easter Activities For The Littles

One week of school holidays down, one to go.
Hope you are all surviving OK :)
Our week has been going well -
helped along by 4 O'Clock - Wine O'Clock!
Today has been a tad cranky though,
they are all in bed now having a nap.

With the big fluffy bunny arriving next weekend,
I thought I would share a few easy Easter activities
to help keep your littles busy.

Last year we made these great little baskets - I love them,
all you need is a balloon, pva glue and scraps of fabric,
very easy and we can use them year after year.
You can find the instructions

 I have also stumbled upon this great printable,
colour it in, then fold it into a box to stash the goodies in.
Should keep them busy for a while...

I'm off to a friends farm tomorrow with the
3 boys, going to put the tent up,
hope I get some sleep!

How are your school holidays going?

Cooking Wraps With The First Born

Hi, first born here. Im going to teach you about
making your own wraps,
and share Catherine's recipe with you
(thanks Catherine)

Here I am putting the wraps in the frying pan. 

here the wraps are on a plate, all done.

Here I am with the Third Born
eating the wraps
We fill our wraps with chicken, carrot, cheese
pineapple, lettuce and avocado.
This is easy you should try it.

this recipe makes 16

400g of flour
2 teaspoon of salt
8 tablespoons of olive oil
8tablespoons of warm water

Place flour and salt in a bowl,
Mix in the oil with a spoon,
gradually stir in 8 tablespoons of warm water
until the mixture starts to form a dough.
Knead the dough on a board until it's smooth.
Divide the mixture into 16 pieces.
Shape a piece into a ball and flatten out
Roll out the dough as thin as you can make it.
Heat the fry pan till it sizzles,
place wrap in fry pan,
Cook for about 1 minute, then turn,
cook for about 30 seconds 

repeat with the other pieces.

We make this meal about once a week,
mum does the dough and rolling and I cook them.
                              Happy Cooking!
