I have really enjoyed my last couple of weeks away from work.
I have played at being the good "school mum", walking my daughter to and from school, meeting the teacher and other parents and all that starting school involves.
I have had time to sew all the things I have promised the childcare centre (two big sheer curtains for an indoor gazebo they have) and even took a couple of the worse-for-wear dress-ups home from kinder to fix!
My sewing space is still as disorganised as when I started my holidays!! I'll get to it one of these days.
I have done lots of cooking (some of which has been described as "disgusting" by my daughter - at least Trev has appreciated it). We've visited the local farmers market for the first time and I have some yummy leeks to cook and delicious pink-eye potatoes to eat with butter and mint.
Autumn has hit Hobart in a big way - and we're only 2 days in. I really want to knit! So I've found the correct needles and am about to cast on a Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan for Matilda. And maybe enjoy a cuppa and some chocolate cake before the childcare pick-up!!
I also picked some more of our tomatoes from the garden. I'm hoping we get some more sunny weather soon, otherwise it'll be green tomato chutney central at our place!! I think Trev and I'll have some bruschetta as an entree to dinner tonight. I'm also planning on making this too (with home-grown zucchini received from a friend).
