 A portrait of my sons, once a week, every week in 2014

Noah - the new favourite spot to hang out. On top of the coffee table of course!

Jasper - racing inside as he is always starving & exhausted after school. 

Finn - we were walking through the electronic section at Myers on Thursday night and he had never used a rotary phone before. I had to show him how to dial a number!

Last night - dusk at the Noodle Markets

We drove into the city last night just as dusk was falling.
We headed to the Night Noodle Market in Hyde Park along with lots of other people.

I love the novelty of being out doing something different on a Tuesday night, away from the usual nightly routine.

Here are a few snippets of the night -

I did take a few photos of the food but there is something about dumplings and noodles that photograph ugly! Not appetising at all, so you will just have to use your imagination ;)
Most of the lines for the food stalls moved quite quickly and there was always somewhere to sit. The most popular stalls we saw were for "Chip on a Stick" (!) and "Hoy Pinoy" - who were selling  BBQ pork and chicken skewers. The scent in the air was delish.

We were too full to try anything else so it would be great to go back a couple of nights to try different things.

We must have missed the Messina stall as I'm sure we could've fit something sweet in to finish the night :)

The Night Noodle Markets run as part of Good Food Month and are on in Sydney until the 26th October. Well worth a look I'd say although I'm sure it will be super busy over the weekend.

We went to the Night Noodle Markets for the first time last year and I think we will try to make it an annual event. You can read more info here

Have you been?
What was your favourite stall?

Our Weekend

Do you feel like the weekends are going faster than usual?
I can't believe it's Monday already.
Here are a few things we got up to on the weekend -

These monkeys were jumping on the bed on Saturday morning and making the bed making process a long one!

I enjoyed some fruit with the first of the Christmas magazines. I love these Christmas issues, as the excitement of the end of the year and holidays starts to build. We're also hosting Christmas Day at our place this year so I'm looking for a few new ideas.

We took advantage of the sun on Sunday with a beach day. So relaxing now that the kids are older and can entertain themselves and not have to be chased all over the beach!

The boys wanted to take a drive up the hill to check out the "castle" where we got married. They are doing renovations to the chapel. It seems so long ago now, it will be 15 years in December.

I made some Raspberry Ripple from the I Quit Sugar cookbook (we're not quitting it by the way, just cutting down) Simon and I liked it as the raspberries added the sweetness but it was too bitter for the boys.  Ingredients include raspberries, shredded coconut, cocao powder,rice malt syrup and coconut oil.

I'm loving Jasper's room at the moment as I have finally added all of the finishing touches. It is looking really fresh and summery.

The grey skies came over today so these stairs were some of the brightest things on my walk today.

Picket fences and flowers are so pretty and the perfect combination.

Moody greys, blues and greens at the beach today. The water looked extra chilly and so different from yesterday.

How was your weekend?
Did you get up to anything interesting?
