good stuff this week
~Seeing Milly start to knead dough with some proficiency. She made Sam a pizza for dinner which was declared "flat but tasty" (she tends to get carried away with the rolling pin and her final product is a little thin).
~Michael painted a bookshelf for Sam to display his lego creations. Once his minifigs (lego people) were lined up in rows he declared the whole effect "satisfying". He is still the same boy who would absentmindedly line his matchbox cars up perfectly rather than zoom them around.
~The first mandarins have appeared in the fruit shop. At the moment there is a love/hate relationship going on as they range from sweet to sour. In a few weeks they will be super sweet and the kids will hurl headlong back into their seasonal addiction for them.
~Sunsets and sunrises this week have been amazing. I'm a little less enamoured of seeing the sunrises as the mornings have turned cold as we settle into autumn proper.
~I saw The Artist this week. Gorgeous film that transported me out of my world and into the 30's. It made me smile throughout. As for the love I have of seeing a film on my own - that is the stuff of an entire blog post. It is truly my happy place and has been since I was living alone in Adelaide and rewarding myself for finishing work at home with Sunday afternoon sessions in the Norwood cinema.
~Finally - remembering recipes that haven't been cooked for a while. This one is red lentil dhal served with poached chicken, we ate it twice last week.
