friday in Brunswick Heads

We are calling Brunswick Heads home this week. Each town surrounding Byron Bay has its own distinct personality, I love this little town for its sleepy but not fully asleep relaxed feeling. I love that it is situated on the Brunswick River and that the ocean is skipping distance over the bridge. From our holiday unit we can walk to River and Sol's favorite beach, Torakina, and the park, library, cafes and health food store, it is a liberating feeling not to rely on a car.

My nan and her partner arrive today to spend a few days with us I am looking forward to seeing them and to a few free hours to wander the beautiful artisan boutiques dotted around Brunz as it is affectionately known.

The Byron Bay Writer's festival starts today. I usually love going along for at least one of the three days but this year I decided instead of spending a whole day listening to authors talk about the books they have completed I am going to use that time to finish writing my ebook.

I've listed Georgia Harding's blog Well Nourished here before, I love so many of her posts for their common sense and realistic approach to feeding families well. This is a fabulous post on children and snacking. A must read so informative and packed with really great practical ideas.

Do you struggle with your children pleading for food 'treats'? Read Georgia's post The Well Nourished Child - Treats

And I love a recipe that has nourishing and chocolate chip in the title.

Speaking of chocolate, have you seen Natural New Age Mum's seven sensational healthy chocolate recipes?

Thanks to Liz for the heads up on this great post about how to make sauerkraut. Fermented foods are the best for great gut health and cheaper too than probiotics in capsules!

Very excited this weekend to be celebrating River's 7th birthday with a bonfire on Saturday night and especially excited that Jay and her lovely family are making the trip from Bellingen. Then on Sunday, Jay and I are meeting up with Natalie who is in the Bay for the Writer's Fest.

Happy weekending to you and yours. Oh and if you are of the facebook world and haven't visited my page yet click on over. I hope you like it :) Bye for now xx
