A wife of noble character who can find?...She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue...Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:10, 26 & 28

Twilight

I haven't done much reading over the last couple of months, I've been too engrossed with cake decorating and looking after the kids and house. That doesn't really leave much time for anything else. But last week I borrowed the movie "Twilight" off Tim's aunty. I started watching it at about a quarter to 11 on Friday night, as Tim had a gig I wasn't going to get to sleep easily, and I loved it so much that as soon as it finished I started watching it again. I've watched it 5 and a half times since then, and it's only Wednesday. Those of you who know me know that I don't usually do that kind of thing with movies, only 2 movies have I watched over and over again, and they are Anne of Green Gables and The Matrix. I knew Tim's aunty also had the book so I asked her to bring it with her when she came over after lunch on Saturday and I had the book finished Sunday morning. It's also a quadrilogy so I went out on Sunday and bought the next 2 books, unfortunately even thought the fourth book is published no one has it so I'm going to have to wait for that one, which is sad because I've already finished the 2nd and 3rd books. We're back into the swing of things today, lots of washing cleaning and schoolwork.

Family Fun

Well I'm finally getting to blog. Here I am typing at 10:33pm, having just gotten home from my sugar flower art course, to put a little girl into bed, who when daddy put her to bed screamed and I now have a little boy in my arms, while I'm typing, resting his head on my arm. We have been so busy here, yet not really doing anything much. A couple of days ago we were making paper aeroplanes and had a competition out the back, with myself, Josiah, Daniel, Kahlia and Christian competing and I won. Yay! Yesterday we went to Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick and had a fantastic time. I can't believe we've lived here so long and I've never been there before. I'm thinking of having a bbq there for Tim's birthday. Today was swimming day so we were out again and tomorrow I've got cooking class with Elijah. He's too young to cook with the class, apparently, but he's allowed to help with the prep so Josiah takes the littlies to Aunty Lesley and looks after them for me, and Elijah and I walk around the corner to the Neighbourhood Centre. 

On a frustrating note. I was supposed to have an 18th birthday cake finished for next weekend and tonight I find out that the lady doesn't want the cake now. I only bought the stuff for it today so even if she had of told me yesterday it wouldn't be such a problem but more than that I've put so much effort into all the flowers for it. I will probably still make the cake but I still have a baby welcoming cake to make for that weekend so that will have priority as that lady has already paid me most of the money. From now on I won't start anything if I haven't had a 50% deposit paid. If they want flowers I need 2 months notice and a deposit then.

On a happy note.  I love the flower course. We made roses tonight and they turned out really well. Roses have been frustrating me so much. They never turn out the way they look in the book so its good to have someone to watch and copy from. We also have half made our orchids and will wire and colour them next week. 

Here's a photo of a lily that I made and some of the cooking I've been doing.

More on Mother's Day


I just wanted to post some pics of the three cakes I made for Mother's Day. The pink and white one is mine, that I made just for me, the grey and purple one I made for Tim's Aunty and the last I made for his Mum.
