But for a bit of indulgents, I figure every girl, whatever age, should have one good dress just for party's, whenever the occasion arises.
I smocked the yoke, bishop style, it is, perhaps, my favourite syle of smocking, dainty glass beads and silk leaves, vines and knots compliment the smocking.

Well he was, he said 'I don't want girls at my party and I don't want to get dressed up', this comming from my boy who's best friend in prep and grade one was a girl, a gorgeous girl too boot, I'm picking her as my future daughter-in-law, I think arranged marriages are not such a bad idea,( no I haven't had too much to drink!) I mean, you know, DNA is important, and I'm thinking about my future grandchildren.
Okay, I better stop, or my free thinking Steiner friends will tie me up.
So we went to Tuki trout farm, with 9 of his friends, and it was fun.
We had a bbq for lunch and the chicken schnitzel burgers went down a treat.
And for a lolly bag?
The boy's got to take their 'catch' home for tea, they were grinning from ear to ear, all that hunter/gatherer stuff , you know.
When I asked Jim what cake he would like, straight away he said a soccer cake mum, one that I can smash and it's full of lollies.
This is the third time I've made this sort of cake, I wonder who will ask for it next year?
It better not be Alice!

His prep teacher Jacinta is leaving, so he wanted to give this to her, which crushed me, because I wanted to keep it, who knows when he'll do another one!
Well I guess I should focus on the positive, and be gratful that I have generous children.
This reminds me that a need to post two more birthdays partys, they are well over but if I don't post them, well, you'll think I'm playing favourites.

Gather a group of like-minded woman, with the purpose of crafting together,
share a lovely morning tea together,
order a day of sunshine, and let the children run outside...free....

There's a sense of accomplishment for the children, everytime we cross the stream, their faces glowing.
5minutes to the sea, 5mins to the mountains, and this stream running through your property.
Where is your dream place to live?
