The children are finding the transition hard and keep asking me when we are going back to our old house to live. I really want to get the house totally sorted and unpacked to help with them settling, but the energy is eluding me and I am struggling big time. And am sure it doesn't help that we still haven't found the box that has the boys much loved matchbox cars in it ... Usually by now I am totally unpacked and sorted - am I getting older and slower haha? Whoo hoo for the long weekend this weekend, no commitments and time to just hang, settle and cruise at our own pace.
I decided to give the kitchen a trial run and bake some Afghan biscuits, using the recipe here from Baking Makes Things Better.
I haven't found my flow in the kitchen yet, but know it takes a while to get used to something new. Lucky I had my wee helper to assist.
And while we were busy creating, The Girl decided that it would be the perfect time to escape outside and go for a ride in the rain ... why not?
The hubby assured me the biscuits were devine, as all of the recipes off Baking Makes Things Better are! I am into week 6 of my 12 Week Summer Challenge, so there is no baking for me. Here is a bit of trumpet blowing though - 5.7kgs lost in 5 weeks. Hard work, dedication, determination and self control of crazy sugar cravings - I am just a little bit proud. When I am finished I will post before and after photos. If I am brave.
Roll on this weekend for some quality family time and settling in!
