No wonder my work pants are getting a little tighter lol I have been definitely enjoying my food as of late!

We had left over pie from last night with asparagus and bok choy and salad... Only to be followed by mango, cream and some coconut dark chocolate....

What happened to the meat group???

Holy cow white man... Now those who know me know me well and I love the ol steak and 3 veg but as I sat here and thought about my poor neglected blog I realised that tonight, my meat group was missing... Don't get me wrong, I had a beautiful dinner but there was NO MEAT!!! WTF

I had spinach, feta and ricotta pie with salad followed by some fruit and cream... All low fat of course, NOT! Lol

Christmas party time

So full

Well the slow cooked pork was a success! It literally fell apart when I tried to pull it out of the pot! So I didn't bother lol

In went some tiny tatters and off come the fat for some crispy time in the oven, peas and corn were heated up and dinner was done... Could have gone some gravy but a touch of apple sauce was all it needed!

Mind you I couldn't go past some fresh mango and cream for dessert :-)

Off to Howard Springs

Well once we finished our ice cream the kids and I continued to drive and head down to Howard Springs to see what the new area is like. We used to be able to swim here but unfortunately they closed the swimming hole... But we found a hell of a lot of fun in its place!

Wait till I find a way to upload the videos of the kids on the flying fox lol

Beautiful Day at Wangi

What a way to spend the day but at Wangi Falls!  Had an absolute ball on the drive, the swim was refreshing and also got to play with the camera!  What more could you ask for ;-)

 Termite Mounds
 I caught this bird zooming past as I was taking picks of the termite mounds

 Playing with the camera to get blurry waterfall!
 Pickies from the middle of the swimming hole

 My little man and me
 Moo givin us a wave from the smaller part of the falls
 My lizard kindred

 All the kids playing in the hole in the falls!
 A fish!  Don't ask me why but I took a pic

 The beautiful Wangi falls just after the dry and the start of the build up!  Can't wait for the wet to kick in to get some awesome photos!

And what did we do next? Popped off to McDonald's for icecream as we do every road trip :-)

Boof got an award

How very proud of my little man that he go an award at school on friday!  This just continues on the great work he has been doing in class!

The next meal

Yes I know, my next meal is never far from my thoughts but before breakfast was over dinner was already in the pan cooking away. And what's for dinner you ask?

Slow cooked pork roast! Seeing as though we are heading to Lichfield today i definitely don't want to get home and start thinking about dinner so I have taken that job out of this afternoon :-) all I need to do is cook up some potato bake and we are done dude! Lol

Breakfast of champions

Love a lazy Sunday breakfast! Kids had soldiers and runny eggs while I kicked back with coffee, juice, yoghurt and eggs.... I am sure I will be able to get through to lunch time now... I hope lol

Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Yes it was inevitable that Caitlyn and I would pop along to to see Breaking Dawn part two! We had a hoot just us girls and the movie did not let us down! Fortunately for me I had read all the books prior but Caitlyn was full of questions for the start lol which of course I didn't give her any answers!

Someone's a little pissy!

Rofl like mother like daughter... Caitlyn getting pissy

Bring on the rain

How nice was it to hear the rumble of thunder this afternoon only to be followed by a nice drop of rain. It definitely cooled the place down!

Also included a photo taken by someone in Palmerston that was sent into nine news which shows the clouds that were just amazing!!!

Caitlyn's graduating??

Well it is finally hitting home that Caitlyn is finishing primary school this year... We went shopping today for her graduation dress and shoes... Check out what we found!

Dinner time

No pork tonight :-) went for chicken instead - you know, the other white meat lol

Haven't had these for a while but seeing as through it was shopping day, I thought I would spoilt myself a little :-)

Kids.... Some things never change

How surprised do you think I was when pulled up in the drive way this afternoon only to find the kids on the balcony throwing parachutes off it. Now back in my day we used army figures and dads handkerchiefs but not my pair! They super sized it using garbage bags and Lego men lol

Brought a smile to my face!

Check out the poor lego men in the sandwich bags  LOL
