Get Out Of Town...

Cough Cough Cough.... Argh don't you just LOVE winter! And all the awesome winter colds, Yeh me either! 

Hey, I'm sorry for my lack of blogging at the moment but as you might have gathered I've been sick and now Again! with the common cold thanks to my lovely children sharing with me. I promise I'll be back up and running with new fabulous posts for you all shortly. In the meantime you'll catch me snuggling under a blanket, hot cup of tea in hand, lazing on my lounge watching mindless television.... actually the third season of 'Orange Is The New Black' has just been released on Netflix so that will keep me plenty entertained.

These happy snaps are of our family trip up to sunny Queensland to visit some family last week, it was great to just get out of town for a few days. We took a few road trips, went to Surfers Paradise enjoyed an ice cream on the main beach and headed down to Brunswick Heads for a market day too. We took the kids to an amazing indoor rock climbing place, Alba was a little scared at first but by the end of the session she was literally climbing the walls with her cousins. I think if you were to ask the little guy what his favourite part of the trip was he'd probably start pointing to the sky, saying Plane! Plane!... or about his new bestie his Aunty's cat, which we all wanted to bring home with us. 

Have you been on holidays recently? or going away somewhere?

Enjoy the weekend my loves.

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
