The weather has certainly turned much cooler in the evenings this week. My two youngest children have been at camp this week. Both of them were totally outdoors, cooking on fires types of camps. I won't be the least bit surprised if they are sick this week. Mitchell has come home with the most awful burn covering at least half the top of his foot. It looks really bad, so I will have to find a doctor to see him in the morning. He had shoes and socks on beside the fire and a pot of boiling water was spilt on his foot. He was so badly hurt and says he went into shock. I am a bit cranky that I wasn't called. Alexandra has hiked with a backpack since Tuesday and slept under a piece of canvas strung up somehow at night. She is one tired little poppet. They were both in bed around 7.30 tonight.
I finally got my lemon curd and lemon passionfruit curd made. It is really delicious. I must get some little tart shells to eat it with. It has turned out much better this time, I realise now I haven't cooked it long enough in my past attempts. Those naughty chooks didn't come to the party with any eggs though - and I still found another eaten one today.
Also, this week while the children were away I had a day in Brisbane - well, disappointing would be an understatement. I went down to the Stitches and Craft show. Nothing jumped out at me with that WOW factor that can sometimes hit you. Some of the stalls that have been previously quite lovely were just very ordinary this time. I found my way to some shops too, but that seemed a little boring as well. I was so looking forward to my day out and it was all just a bit of a let down.
So my highlight of the week then was a trip to the thrift/junk shops - better then Brisbane! I found some lovely old silverware that is the same pattern as my parents silver cutlery and a couple of lovely old pieces of embroidery. It is all soaking at the moment, so hopefully some pics later. My mannequin will be getting a new outfit too! She will be stunning in this little number!!
A long weekend here this weekend, so hopefully a lovely weekend at home mostly.
Off for a cuppa and a read in bed, which never happens due to BJ's awful sleeping routine with being a night worker.
A happy weekend to everyone!
