Well it’s all over red rover!
Thanks to my mum & the children’s god mother, (her name is also Kristi...). The baby was sick so trying to get everything ready was near on imposable on my own.
We had a table for mum’s to make their own tea/coffee with chocolate & Pavlova to keep there energy up.

Table for gifts so we could sit down with Sam after the party read cards to find out who everything was from, which took all afternoon as Sam opened a strawberry short cake DVD & rested on the couch once everyone left leaving all the other gifts on the table..........
Bright fabric raped around the patio to decorate & a sign on an easel placed at the gate for guest to know where to go done the day before made things a bit easier.
The little pot's of "gold"given to children as they left were loved!
& what every little tired party goer needs at the end of the night is a relaxing foot spa!

On my mind

On my mind today is Sam’s rainbow party tomorrow.
No land fill lollies bags for kids a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow with seeds to re use the pot,
Little fabric bags filled with lollies & a balloon in the pass the parcel it a few hidden prizes.
Paper cones to hold pop corn with little rainbow’s glued to them.
Fairys for the garden because fairys live under rainbows Sam tell's me!
Homemade rainbow tooth picked to rainbow up any food, sandwiches, fruit ECT:
Gluten free cup cakes that I will all so be rainbow for our gluten free friends, because rainbow cake is for everyone J
Lot’s of rainbow fabric to cover the patio,
I have so much work to do but I will stop & take pitchers for you tomorrow.
Wish me luck......

winter wednesday

I for one am going to miss winter.
I will miss looking out my kitchen window, Watching the damp night melt away into the day as the rays of sun stretch across the lawn till it reaches each corner of my yard.

On my kitchen window sill

·         My kitchen window sill is always a shambles, its home to many changing things.
·         My scrap bin to take fruit/veg scraps to the compost bin.
·         Candle that can always be found in a black out.
·         Good old hand wash & cream a constant.
·         Orange vinegar (cleaner) that’s been brewing for weeks.
·         The murky looking jar is chilli & garlic water when diluted into a spray bottle is applied to the veg patch to deter pests.
·         Oil burner
·         Flowers from my grandparent’s garden.
·         New potatoes dug up out of curiosity.
·         Recycled can that holds my bottle brush/scrubbing brushes.
·         A shabby wooden box that holds dish cloths, scars, essential oils.
·         Everything gets dumped on my kitchen window sill but it’s a peek into what’s currently happening in my home.
·         What’s on your kitchen window sill?
