9 years...

I miss my dad.
He's been gone for nine years.

Not sure if it gets any easier...
July is a terrible time of the year when I feel the loss.

I'm sad that he didn't get the chance to be a granddad.
They would have had such a wonderful time together and geez,
all the things he could have taught them - my dad could do anything,

Let's light a candle and remember our loved ones
♥ ♥ ♥
Always in my heart.

Mt Tamborine Excursion

Last Wednesday we went to Mt Tamborine with one of our Swedish friends and her Swaustralian kids. They have an Australian dad just like my kids, Lots of Swenglish going on... So much fun when you find friends you can do fun things with.

Love the school holidays when I can whip up treats for the kids at any time...

I made Swedish vanilla buns the other day.
Perfect to bring to the park and share with friends♥

My Little Pony Show

Free show for the kids at our local shopping centre during the first week of the holidays.

This school holiday it was a My Little Pony Show. Not really my nine year old's cup of tea, so he went to the arcade with his dad instead.

The Fun Fair 

My two♥

Last days of the holidays

Oops, the last days of the holidays are upon us and I haven't been blogging much at all lately. We've been busy with a some play dates and time seems to have flown past pretty quickly, especially the last week.

On Monday, we are back to school again and it's only 10 weeks until the next school holiday... Not that I've started the countdown or anything lol

OP shop finds

Spotted two Christmas books at our local OP shop when I was there the other day. It's been ages since I did any shopping there. I think the last time was in February when my mum was visiting from Sweden and almost on her way back home. Jeez, such a long time ago... Time flies with kids, school - and life! 

I always keep an eye out for good cookbooks, especially Christmas books. I know I have too many already, but I can't resist a really good bargain... Are you running out of shelf space too? 

These books will be perfect if I decide to celebrate Christmas in July!

Enjoy your day☺

Winter Holiday Playdate

It's the first real day of the Winter holidays and we went to a good friend's house for the day. We had a wonderful time. All the kids played nicely - and us mums too... lol

A lot of friends...
My two, my friend's three and two extra kids.
Imagine having seven kids at the table - at all times!
It's enough with two, I think.

Big smiles when it was dessert time ☺

The three friends.
They all go to the same Prep class.

The boys were busy playing games.

Some Wii-dancing... ☺

More dancing!
Ah, the energy these girls have...

The boys were being creative.

My friend's husband made us coffee.
So scrumptious!
A perfect ending of a perfect day ☺
