|Steaks and salads all set to go.....self service at the big island bar.|
|What was left of the caramel cheesecake which had a delicious caramel sauce to got with it.|
Also spent a day crafting with my eldest daughter and we tried our hand at making bath bombs to give as gifts....very easy recipe and I was quite amazed how well they turned out...I made big ones in a recycled plastic donut box...they came out really nice.
|Mixed up the ingredients, citric acid, bicarb, corn flour, essential oil fragrance, colour and water...|
|Placed the just damp mixture into the moulds and the donut packaging...|
|They turned out OK....great gift idea and we've put them on the list for homemade Christmas.|
We also tackled homemade candles but the soy we used was for pillar not container so we had a few problems but they came out okay in the end....I have kept my empty jars from candles I have either bought or been given over the year and have up-cycled the beautiful jars....very happy with the result....don't think I will ever buy candles again as they are very easy to make and work out much cheaper.
|My up-cycled jars being used for more candles...labelled and ready to give as gifts....or keep for myself !|
|Beeswax candles have a beautiful colour....really happy with these ones.|
A trip to Red Hill market for the last market before winter was a lovely day spent with my girls and my gboy....they had a petting zoo which he loved.
|At the petting zoo which had lovely baby animals...he also feed a kid and a lamb.|
|My little man in full flight at kinder........a school boy next year!|
Sunday saw us all having Mother's day at my mum's place for afternoon tea...... we had a lovely family day and I was very spoilt with perfume, books, chocolates and a pasta machine from my fluffy girls...thanks to my husband. Looking forward to getting into some homemade pasta !!
