we've been baking bread, discovering allergies and trying very hard to feed our family well with unprocessed,  homegrown, delicious food. It's the most satisfying feeling as a parent, knowing that you are providing your family with the good stuff.  Once we get to the bottom of the allergy issue it'll be much easier, but it sure is nice to see our little people enjoying everything we're making and not feeling at all like they are missing out on all the yummy stuff..
we've been spending time... 
just hanging about... 
we've been celebrating a never ending birthday...still! 
we've been visiting nan & pop's, a favourite place on earth... 
sewing heat bags with nan to keep us cosy on these cold winter nights... 
we've been climbing trees (always climbing trees)... 
and building bonfires with uncles, sharing stories, dreams and plans for the future..

what have you been up to lately?


  1. It's so lovely to see you back and that life has been treating you well. It is a lovely feeling providing wholesome food, knowing what goodness is going into them to feed and nourish their bodies. I hope that you discover soon what the food allergy is.

    Lately we've just been hanging out together, a little crochet and a little bit of craft, slowly the mojo is returning. Have a wonderful week. xx

  2. So great to get to the bottom of what they are allergic to.
    It does help with the eating wholesome business!!
    Anything from scratch is so good, you know whats gone in there
    and it'll taste better made with love anyway!!x

  3. I've missed your posts, glad to have you back.

    It wounds like you've been having wonderful family time. Allergies can be very tricky but great when you get to the bottom of it.

    It's been a bit of survival mode for me. I normally love winter but this year it has been rather cold and glum in Adelaide. Most weekends I am happy to stay close to home crocheting and baking.

    Enjoy your week. xx

  4. That tree is awesome! There was similar style tree at my grandparents, we'd all pack ourselves in and try and get the top. Hours of fun. Good to see it still happens!
    Loving all of the others pics too.

  5. Ooh yum, that bread looks very tasty Mel! Allergy foods can taste so good, coz there are so many options out there these days to make it. Enjoy.
    Lovely to see all those fabulous cosy shots of you and yours. ♥

  6. Did you make a photographic appearance on your blog???!!! Yay! I dont know what I like most - the bread, your nanna's sewing machine or the fabulous tree climbing!

  7. You are so cute.....with your pack of adorable boys....I love baking bread and cooking from scratch....right now its lots of fresh salmon......we only have 14 more day till our trip and when we get back.... its off to school....

  8. Gorgeous post....,

    And that tree !

    Lately, i've been busy, but a good, crafty, productive busy.
    Have a great week, Dee

  9. Your bread looks delicious. LOVE the old SINGER sewing machine.
    Your boys look like they are thriving on lots of good things :D

  10. I feel your pain on the allergy front. I grew up being able to eat ALL foods and as an adult have now developed several food allergies, to some of my favorite things. :( It's made eating out a challenge, so I'm finding more excuses to cook at home and to eat other foods I really enjoy (sometimes in massive quantities, like my latest blueberry binge!).


hello! thanks so much for visiting x
