A day in the Life of ......

This post is purely in the form of "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" , as I copy the posts I am addicted to on one of my fave blogs:  Table Tonic.  I love it for the fashion, interiors, ideas and plenty of eye-candy!  (Of course, this post will have very little of any of those ......)

What I wore:

Pull-On Ponte Pants from Witchery, long sleeve v-neck top (cypress) also from Witchery, Long line, long sleeve black cardigan from Country Road.

My EasyFit Boots - I have had these boots now for nearly 5 years, and they still look AMAZING!

What I bought:

How cute is this stroller?  QuickSmart Easy Fold Stroller .

Thank you Myers for having 40% off:  $219, down to $132!  I thought my last stroller (bought 2.5 yrs ago) would last the distance, but no, the wheels are cactus, the hand grips have disintegrated and the frame is hammered from No 3 (5yrs old) standing on the back basket.  This one is sleek, folds quick and flat, has it's own carry bag, and there is no frame on the back so I don't have to push 30kg worth of kiddy flesh.  And pushes like a dream ...... *sigh*.

Kiddy Heaven:

Grateful to Myers for providing Free Kids entertainment!  Not only were there plenty of Little Tikes Trucks out for them to race round in, but there was also this Jumping Castle (next to the Furniture Dept, so I also got a comfy chair to sit in) that No 3 & 4 had loads of fun in for agggggggggggggges.  And yes, that's my 3 yr old's Witchery-clad bottom.

The Lunch:

Home for h-made Socca wraps
Socca:  1/2 cup of besan/chickpea flour, 1/2 cup of water, 1 tbsp olive oil, pinch of sea salt, pinch of cumin.  Whisk together.  Heat 1 tbsp oil in pan to sizzling, pour in batter, let cook till golden, flip and do other side. 

Today's effort cracked so made 2 "mini" wraps, loaded with leftover lamb kofta, grated raw beetroot, cucumber, tomato, mashed avo, and some tzatziki (yes, I am aware I am mixing cuisines here).  So delish and very filling.

Soup's UP:

My soup addiction continues:  Chicken Mulligatawny & Pumpkin & Macadamia.


Yes, she cooks, and Yes, her recipes are GOOD!


We are reading through Esther at night with the kids and are getting SOOOOO much out of it!  I'm really feeling encouraged about how God's plans will ALWAYS come to be, even if everything seems to be on the brink of destruction.  How many times was Jesus' lineage threatened? - oh so many!  Yet, always, God's purpose was fulfilled and there were bountiful blessings.  Nothing's an accident or a mistake, God is in control.  :-)

Good News

I lost the 2 kgs that I'd put on.  It's all about the Mindful Eating People!!!  And lots of this ......

Super Fruit Smoothee of the Week:  Custard Apple, Banana, Coconut Water & Passionfruit, totally decadent!

And we leave for Fraser Island on Saturday and I cannot wait to chill out, do some 4wdriving, dune toboganning, and just hang with the fam.  So, see you when we get back!!!!  MWAH to you all.....
