friday before home

Next Friday we will be back home on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. We are savouring the last days of this trip to Byron Bay and surrounds, feeling grateful to have skipped the heart of Victoria's chilling winter and instead have been warmed every day by glorious sunshine.

In the morning I'm hoping to make it to Mullumbimby market for a final scout around, looking at local designers wares, enjoying a coffee most likely while River and Sol indulge in an organic donut (believe me, the word organic does not negate the fat and sugar indulgence).

Sunday may see us heading south near Evans Head for a picnic with friends, or staying local...

By next Thrusday when we leave I will be feeling ready to be back in our own home, ready to reconnect with our southern family and friends. That said, there is much to miss about being here but I am not going to dwell on that because we still have five whole days ahead of us.

Let's get on with the list. Posts and blogs that have caught my attention and/or imagination this week...

We celebrated River's 7th birthday recently and were very happy when Jay and her family made the trip from Bellingen to join us. Click on over to view Jay's beautiful photography from our bonfire celebration. Thank you Jay xxx (love your new header too by the way)

Loved this post from Jodi on creating a bedtime for YOU 

At the local library this week I discovered a brilliant new book - The Artful Parent - I will write a review at some stage but in the meantime you have a chance to win a copy, quick go now entries close Saturday August 17 11.59pm EST. I love this book because the focus is on the art making process not the outcome and it is filled with realistic beautiful art projects and ways to slot the making into your day.

What's that you're hungry? So far none of these links are to food I hear you say. Have you tried my buckwheat, banana, walnut and maple syrup porridge? It surprises me that it is one of the most read posts on my blog. Who knew porridge was so interesting?! For something savoury, nourishing, easy, delicious AND crowd pleasing try Liana's one pot chicken and rice.

Got a favorite post from the week to share? Head on over and link up at Maxabella's weekend rewind. Thanks Maxabella. Great way to discover blogs and bring new readers.

Happy weekending everyone xx
