Infinite possibilities for the new year

As the year draws to an end, my head is full of thoughts and images and I start to think about the year that was and the year that will be.

That's when I start writing mental lists of what I'd wish the new year would bring us, my family, friends and to you lovely friends who pop by to sprinkle some fairy dust and love and make me smile.

So for the new year my list would definitely include infinite









What do you wish for the new year?

I'd love to hear and as a special thank you for being a part of my journey and my year I will pick a name out of the virtual mixing bowl before the year ends and send them some cupcake wrappers from my infinite stash.

Go on, you know you'd love some ♥

A few tears rolled down my cheek as we farewelled kinder and are off to get ready for new adventures

Said thank you  to the wonderful kinder teachers who provided a wonderful, creative, learning and supportive environment for our little people

and left a gingerbread surprise to the little friends made


Hope you held it together for your little people's last days at kinder or school.

Are these last weeks just a tad chaotic for everyone else as well?

I am off to do some baking and will post the recipe for the shortbread above if you would like later on.

Happy day to you ♥

p.s  I am again without a camera so excuse the quality as I take a deep breath and learn to  j u s t   c a l m   d o w n !

Happy List

Sometimes things around us just don't play by our rules, maybe it's the weather, our jobs, our kids, our friends or just something that isn't going right.

I have had a 3 year old rule my life the last few weeks with horrible screams and tantrums and as much as I have wanted to hide from him, I of course couldn't.

So instead of giving into him, I am enjoy the things around me that make me happy.

fresh lettuce and tomato sandwiches

lentils and rice for dinner

with fresh carrots

chickens pecking away in the wet, wet grass

eating carrots in the tyre swing

making fruit mince tart mixture for the market on Saturday

Do you have a happy list?
Pop round to Kate's and read her happy list and let her know, she'd love to read it and so would I.

Hope you have a happy day wherever you are ♥

Gingerbread House

Construction has finished and this little gingerbread house is off to kinder this evening to be included in a kinder raffle.

It's not your usual gingerbread lolly house so i hope the raffle winner likes it.  
It's covered in fondant so I am guessing it will be sweet enough..and yes, bunting obsession is back!

I used this recipe if you are joining in on the fun. 

I'd love to see your gingerbread house if you make one.

Happy day lovely ladies ♥
