Bush Birthday Celebrations

I only have two nephews. They are cousins, born two years apart and by pure chance their birthdays are on the same day! 

I share a birthday with a cousin and joint birthday parties growing up were the best. We were lucky enough to be invited to join in the bush birthday celebrations on the weekend and what better excuse to pull the boots out of the cupboard, leave behind the weekend sporting schedule and head out of town.

feasting...this is the hand of experience in the roasting of lamb!

it wouldn't be a party without games

even the young at heart joined in

and of course  there were marshmallows
This was the perfect weather for roasting marshmallows in the great outdoors and a great way to celebrate a couple of special birthdays!

Here & Now ~ June


lunch in the tree

Loving //The last of the autumn colours and the winter sunshine
Eating //out in the paddock. It's the best way to have a sausage!
Drinking // vanilla lattes...why did no-one tell me?!
Feeling //a little overwhelmed but there are school holidays on the horizon. This may be a chance to breathe and reset. 
Making //lots of making. I have the crochet bug again and have completed a granny stripe blanket and a cushion cover. Every time I finish something I still surprise myself at my ability to read and complete a pattern
Thinking //about my garden. There are some unloved corners but I know from experience that gardening gets pushed down my priority list if I'm pressed. I am trying to come up with solutions to make my garden a place I want to be while not making it something I can't manage!
Dreaming //of a pair of winter boots from Frankie4 Footwear I have been coverting for a while now. There is a sale on today....
