Freshly churned butter🐄 Whenever I see reduced cream about to expire I buy it and freeze it until I'm ready to make a fresh batch of butter. The cream close to expiry is better as it churns quicker. The whole process is so quick, talking less than a minute and the taste is amazing💛💛💛
• wholemeal honey thyme shortbread • I've been testing out some new recipes lately, looking forward to some quiet weekends to hopefully retest and write them out! • how cute are those hedgehogs and squirrels (great for the work lunchbox 😅😅 #mumlife ) • cookie cutters from @colessupermarkets •
Sitting here this morning full of gratitude as i reflect on the weekend just gone ✨
So many ahh-haa moments, personal development, growth and inspiration taken away, not to mention a hell of alot of fun while doing it 👊 👯💃 So thankful for my little business, the people, community and personal development it has bought into my life! 😍
I never thought these opportunities would be possible nor grow so much as a person. 💗
Nothing is left to coincidence in this life 🌷
Kiddo is sporting the 90s crop top look this morning in his protest at being made to wear a shirt because it's flippin freezing!! It's even a sensory t shirt which he will usually tolerate, but not today... wish me luck with getting him fully dressed! Happy Monday all!
When you’re out grocery shopping with your son and he’s being a little shit the whole time and you’re sleep deprived and then you’re waiting in line at the checkout and an older lady behind you starts asking questions and telling you how cute your child is and you accidentally just blurt out of no where “yeah, but he’s really fucking annoying” 😶 her face was priceless and I couldn’t believe what I just said also..... ***starts back tracking 😂 Here is a rare photo of Angus not being annoying 😂 trust me I do love him, I’m just struggling with mum life lately.
Not exactly the sort of street art we were expecting buried deep in the bush on an abandoned rail tunnel entrance. How cool is this guy?! Some of the graffiti inside the tunnel is also pretty insane and whoever did it obviously had far better lighting than we did, it wasn't until I downloaded my flash photography that I even saw it!
Left bare faced, Right- Two minute make up! Our Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturiser and LipSense and I can face the day feeling way more confident!! If this is all I get time for, than Im still happy enough with that!
When technology isn't working at home and you wanna break the vibe what better than getting out of the house and hanging at the car wash! Kids request was the car wash with the rainbow bubbles.
Happy kids now home with a new vibe and attitude and hopefully technology is up and running so I can get some work done!
I'm totally procrastinating. Making cacti. Working myself up to cutting the kinder piece. I'm thinking of cutting out the figures and then welding them back on. I have a slight adrenaline tremor, I'll have to steady that before I start cutting.
Let's face it, this parenting gig ain't easy.
We all know it, we all complain about it. But what do we also do? Well, it seems us mumma's enjoy stress, cause we go and make it all a whole lot harder on ourselves. 🙄
Every single day I feel wracked with guilt over one thing or another. Right now it's over plonking my 2 year old on the couch and snuggling up in front of the telly so we can both get some rest.
Yesterday it was because I had to rely on my own Mumma to get the medication Leo needs to help him feel better (thank you again Mum #lifesaver ).
The day before that it was something else, and so on it goes. You
But why should we feel guilty? Why should we beat ourselves up even more? Everyday my mind is constantly on the go, worrying about the infinite things that us as parents have to worry about.
So why should I add that ominous guilt to the extensive range of feelings I already go through each day?
I know it's natural, that every other parent goes through the same thing. But we shouldn't.
Mumma's, look at your baby. They may be chucking a tanty, they may be eating chicken nuggets for lunch, they may have their pjs on still.. whatever. But look at them.
Are they mostly happy? Did they wake up this morning with a Mummy who loves them? Do they have a full tummy? Do you feel your heart swell a little when you look at them?
You are doing a great job.
So #screwthemummyguilt - from now on I refuse to let myself stress about things I don't need to. My little boy is happy, healthy, clothed, fed and most of all loved beyond measure.
I have nothing to be guilty about. ✌🏼
