Mornings are often far too early for my liking here. I have an early bird, who no matter what time he is put to bed is up at the crack of dawn. It must be the way he is built!
Picnics are something we don't do enough of. We often go for a bushwalk but don't stop for an actual picnic. We went to our national park and discovered kids had been busy building huts!
So we had our picnic inside which the kids loved. Home made bread, Aussie ham off the bone and fresh chocolate cake were on the menu.
I always make soup for lunch during the week. Healthy, cheap and instant food which is packed full of goodness. Finished with herbs from the garden makes it so satisfying.
And making chicken broth for the unwell boys in my house. Grant is still battling his bug but getting better slowly and little Henry has a virus too. He has had a wheezy, tight chest and despite dealing with serious asthma in my eldest for many years, moderate asthma in my middle boy, and being a nurse by trade little ones with tight chests make me extremely worried. Fortunetly he seems to be on the mend.
Every time the boys get sick, especially asthma I am reminded how lucky we are to live in this amazing country with modern medicine that helps open their small, sensitive airways. It is certainly something to give thanks for!
And I have been sewing Gussy's birthday pressie at night this week too. It's nearly finished now. Here is his head. It's 'Toothless' from 'how to train your dragon.' I should finish him tonight and will post a picture next week. Along with the post about our lined out shed. I didn't get a chance this week.
Hope everyone has a relaxing and safe long weekend. We are looking forward to catching up with family and friends and also a bit of rest in there too.
