After the whirlwind of this morning getting ready for the first day back at school, all I can hear is silence.
I am going to miss the boys today. We have had such a great time these last 7 weeks :)
Although 3 o'clock will roll around in no time at all. It doesnt take long for life to get back to the same old routine.
The up side to the boys being back at school is the house will stay tidier for longer and the cupboard and fridge wont be opened every half hour or so! And I am looking forward to those smiles and hugs at school pick up time.
I was wondering how my Sydney blogging friends felt about meeting up and having a picnic?
We have had such beautiful weather over the weekend, I thought why not enjoy it?
Of course I would have a contingency plan but how nice would it be to sit in the sun, with a shady tree nearby if needed, having a chat with some delicious eats and maybe a cheeky glass or two of champagne?
I was thinking of a little spot outside Government House, (round near spot DL48)overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. I thought that would be central for us all near the buses and train stations and parking if needed.
I am obsessed with the tv show Grand Designs on Foxtel lately.
I can't get enough!
The program follows people as they build their own houses. I just love seeing plans turn into a home. I get all caught up emotionally with them when they go over budget and stress with them over building delays and I am so happy for them when it is all over and they have their house!
Some of the gorgeous houses include this stunning Queenslander in Southport.
This home in Cottage Point.
This house on the Victorian coast.
This home in Fish Creek.
This home in the Victorian bush.
So do you watch it?
They also do a Grand Designs UK which I watch too.
Building is such an emotional experience and I have yet to see one that went exactly to plan.

6. My favourite dip to take to BBQ's is a Nacho Dip. It ain't pretty but it is delicious! The bowl is always scraped clean.
To make you need - 1 can refried beans, 2 avocados, lemon,1 carton sour cream, 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper, 1 tomato, 2 shallots, grated cheese , lots of corn chips.
-Spread beans in a shallow dish, mash avocadoes (guacamole), spread over the beans, Pour over sour cream and sprinkle with the cayenne pepper. Chop tomatoes and shallots and layer over the top of the sour cream. Top with cheese and serve with Corn Chips. Enjoy!
7. The last book I read was this one.
