Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair

This morning I raced around like a mad hare trying to get myself, Jack and Nellie out the door reasonably early so I could get to the Craft and Quilt Fair. There were some sacrifices which had to be made in order to achieve the 8am deadline - couldn't wash my hair, only gave Nellie a breastfeed and took the bottles with me, and I relied on childcare to give Jack breakfast. Felt slightly guilty about this one but I knew they did breakfast there until about 8.30am so I swallowed down the guilt and dropped him off.

A celebration.

Today is our son Jack's third birthday.

It got off to a quiet start as he has gone to his grandparents house for the day with his dad at 6am so I can get some things done (and to save my back a bit from carrying him).

So let me tell you about Jack.

Little treasures...

This morning I digressed.

After dropping Jack at childcare, I made the error of dropping into the local op shop for a quick lap to spot any treasures. And found a cracker. Up high on a ledge was a fabulous wicker baby bassinet. I have a bit of a thing for old wicker and undeterred by having only the pram to transport it, handed over my $8 and got it home the few blocks. Not that sleepy Nellie noticed:

Here we go....

So, first post.

And it's cooking! My son's third birthday is coming up and I have a lot to do. We're having just a few family and friends at home for a fingerfood style BBQ, so I thought I'd do some lamb koftas which I can prepare ahead, freeze and then pop in the oven on the day to reheat. It's a recipe I've done a couple of times before from 'The Essential Fingerfood Cookbook' by Murdoch Books.
