I know I disappeared for a minute there. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my mother-in-law and I took the boys on a road trip from Sydney to South Australia and back, around 3,000km. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I loved driving the endlessly straight roads and seeing nothing but fields and the occasional station, some dead roos and some live Emu’s, it was an education!
Here’s just a glimpse into our wonderful, fun-filled 14 days:
Another reason I popped back on here tonight is to show you a very quick shot of what I am working on at the moment. Another lovely byproduct of the road trip was the fact that we saw my MILs sister and she and I share a love of wool and knitting. She passed on a huge amount of yarn and some amazing old patterns. So with some of the yarn she gave me and one of the patterns I got started right away.
I look forward to showing you the completed project when I am done!

Luke: started school this week and he loves it!
In Germany, on their first day of school children receive a cardboard cone (Schultuete), prettily decorated and filled with toys, sweets, school supplies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter.
