WIP Wednesday: Jumper (and some pics of our recent road trip)

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.

Max: always in motion. (Canon EOS 550D, f/3.5, 1/320 sec, ISO-1600).

I wanted to share this sweet picture of my two boys. Surprisingly Max is loving having time with Mama for most of the day and he has fallen into a rhythm with his nap again, giving me the chance to catch-up on blogging, emails, work, knitting, etc.
