Catching Up - January

It's been a long time between posts. Pour yourself a cup of tea and grab an apple or two.
Sit down and see what we've been up to since mid-January*

Emily and I spent an afternoon (or two) making these tiny felt dolls.

Too cute.

We went on a picnic with my extended family for my aunt's birthday,
close to Australia Day.

I discovered a recipe for the most amazing Vegan Cashew Cheesecakes.
Perfect for special occasions.

I made myself an omelette every morning.

Despite my post-Christmas intentions, I only went for a walk once.
Maybe twice. So much for that plan.

I enjoyed taking many, many photos on my new iPhone.
(My old phone would crash if I took more than a few photos in one go)

There was much lazing about, interspersed with a little planning for the new year.
The girls probably had more social outings these holidays than ever before,
and there didn't seem to be many completely free days. There were times when we all got on each other's nerves, and moments when everything was good. Not much time to myself.
So go the holidays.

This year, there was also the knowledge that this might be our last summer like this, 
depending on what Emily does after leaving school early next summer.

But eventually it was time to go back to school.
Emily glad for a cold day so she could wear her Yr 12 jersey for her last "first day of school"

And Laura started Year 10, her last summer in this uniform.

And then suddenly, January was over.

*The truth is, since I've had my new phone I've been using that instead of the camera,
and I haven't been in a good photo/blogging routine ever since then. And I've been finding Instagram an all-too-easy alternative to blogging.Time to fix that, because I do love recording of moments of our life via blogging.

All these photos were taken on my phone.

Oh wow, maybe I could eat those cheesecakes?
