School holidays are over, back to the routine. Lil-lil is bursting at the seams to get back. Goosey is cranky and saying she's not allowed to go, the bottom lip has been out all morning. Goose is really going to miss her as they've had a great time the past two weeks – they've invented more games than I can remember. They even created a little boy called Lowen, he was from Russia and his parents were killed by witch. He could fix anything except cars. He stayed with us for most of Saturday. Strangely enough, even though he was from Russia, he couldn't speak Russian.
We waved Skip off early this morning as he headed to the airport, to go to Melbourne until Friday evening. It will be a girly week of easy dinners and taking control of the remote. Though we do have a lot to take our mind off Skip's absence, such as a certain 3rd birthday to prepare for. I can't believe my little one will be 3 ! There is a cake to plan, presents to buy and sausage rolls to make.
I wanted to share something my girls LOVED doing over the holidays. I completely stole this idea from i-mumma. I'm so not a craft mum. My idea of doing craft is throwing some paper and crayons at them and hoping they don't draw on the walls. But this is super easy and super fun.
- 1 tablespoon self-raising flour
- a few drops of food colouring
- 1 tablespoon of salt
Combine the above together with a little water to make a smooth paste and paint away on pieces of cardboard. When the artworks are finished pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds until they magically 'puff' up and dry.
The girls had a ball doing this and created some birthday cards for their little mate's 4th birthday.
Have a good Monday!
