Lovely Planetarians, it’s that time of the week again when I reflect on some of the splendid moments in my week on Planet Baby. It’s been yet another turbulent one with my Dad raced off to hospital again (he’s home now), still no tenant for our rental, Joshua starting school holidays and The Big Move to our new house commencing. We’ve all had head colds so I’ve been wiping runny noses all day long just as winter has settled into its chilly ways. Anyway, this is a sure-fire way to lift my spirits and yours too, I hope – enjoy!
*I feasted upon* scrumptious Eton Mess. Have you ever heard of it? Or tasted it? It’s well worth a try.
It wasn’t *exactly* my intention. However, after trying to make my failproof-pavlova in a hurry and managing to drop a tiny speck of egg-yolk into my egg-whites, my pavlova failed to rise. So I turned to this trusty recipe I found in the Sydney Morning Herald some years ago and created something luscious out of a disaster!
Ooh, I *want* some! Desperately. Aren’t they just fabulous works of art?
* I enjoyed* receiving my latest eBay purchase, ‘Box in box’, all flat-packed and ready for me to put together for use in my new *room of my own*. Can’t you see it on my new-yet-to-be-purchased-desk? Thanks to sweet Claire for this hot little tip!
* I created* this little acrylic painting in a few minutes using left-over paint from painting my own little birdie to match the one you saw here.
It’s nothing flash but I enjoyed having a moment to *let go* and express myself. I can’t wait to unpack my watercolours and start creating in my new *room of my own*.
* I read this* Groucho Marx quotation at Kind Over Matter which made a lot of sense to me. What do you think?
* I watched* Joshie finish First Term at his new school, only to have to say goodbye to his new-found friends, ready to move schools after the holidays.
India, Sam and I attended morning tea in his honour, taking in cups of jellied fruit to accompany the fruit skewers one of the mums kindly assembled as the throngs of hungry children descended upon her! I was so touched to see how *beautifully* he mixed with all his classmates and how much they appeared to delight in his company. I am very proud of the manner in which he is handling all these big changes so far. It’s a lot for a 5 year old to adapt to, I think.
Life on PB is at sixes and sevens at the moment as we’re in the middle of The Big Move. I’ll fill you in on the latest moves on our Monopoly game soon – once I’ve done some more packing! I wish you all an enjoyable and fulfilling week.
