Made It...

This oppressive Melbourne heat has kept up locked indoors (grrr) & today we (I) did a bit of making... New cushions, made as a gift for Mum & Dad. They took about 15 minutes to make because I cheated by stuffing them & sewing them up instead of making proper cushion covers. They are really basic with boxed corners & I think I will make a bigger version for us to use as a floor cushion. Ours will have to be washable though because of the small people who live with us...
Florentines made with Mum's Recipe...
Home made muesli bars. These were a trial run & a bit too sweet, but with a bit of tweaking they will be a great homemade snack sans all the ridiculous store-bought packaging & mystery ingredients...

Tempers are getting pretty frayed at our place. The combination of Willow teething, the heat & Ryder's boredom from being stuck inside are all getting to me. I told 'The Boss' that if we don't take a holiday soon then 'I quit!'. When to stay-at-home mums get to take annual leave....? Man, we need a union! Luckily we are heading out tonight for some adult time with some fantastic friends who are in town from Dubai. No sippy-cups, tantrums or nappy changes for me tonight, just adult conversation, champagne & high heels- huzzah!
