Today Evie and I enjoyed a quiet morning at home....our third quiet day at home.
Together we made some playdough
As those little hands were kept busy, I made a loaf of bread
and managed to squeeze in a few rows on this little project.
I also prepared a yummy lunch.

We headed off to school for an early pick up, our big girl has just returned from a 3 day camp! Very tired and weary mind you, and nothing that a late afternoon hot bath and an early delicious home cooked dinner can't fix!
Evie is very pleased that Abbey is home! So am I. 
We all missed each other a little too much.

School holidays are here again, Abbey and I have written a "holiday things to do list", we are hoping to do everything on the list and possibly more!
I especially enjoy the reduced pace of the holidays, not having the morning rush to school, no after school activities, and the occasional sleep in! (notice how Abbey has upper cased and underlined this on her list.)
Happy Spring Holidays to you! What are your plans for these holidays?

Yummy Lunch Recipe:
*Vegetable stock (I used 1 litre)
*Spring onion, garlic, carrot, celery
*Chick peas, parsley

In a deep pan, fry off spring onion, garlic, carrot and celery. Add bacon and continue pan frying until ingredients are just cooked. Pour in vegetable stock, gently bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer. Add chick peas and chopped parsley. Simmer until chick peas are warmed through.

Play Dough Recipe:
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
food colouring
1 cup of boiling water

Mix dry ingredients together, add oil, boiling water and food colouring. Stir and knead. Store in an air tight container.
