Savoury scrolls baking in the oven for morning tea after church tomorrow.  Smells so good in here.  Made an orange cake, and some really yummy vegan chocolate brownies earlier.  Thought I should do some practice for my entries in the competitive cookery section at the Royal Adelaide Show this year.

Bless him, my 6yo DS with ASD has started talking about when/if he has a baby when he grows up. Today he watched intently while I made him a peanut butter sandwich, and asked to learn how to make it so he could one day make them for his baby to eat !

I am very charmed by this, and also wondering if I can use it to inspire him to learn a few more self-care skills, since he’ll need them to look after his future baby. Hmmm...

What a gorgeous boy!

That DS11 asked me to buy the toy below this and has been hanging out with it all day. I love that he’s not growing up too quickly!

I got my new drivers licence.  After googling how to hide my double chin and applying more makeup than I ever have in all my life the photo is quite decent.  Thankyou random youtuber

Memories of a cracker date day yesterday. And now we're all just having a lazy day at home together.

I arrived home this afternoon from a weekend away and was enthusiastically greeted by my dogs, cat and chooks all at once. It's been a rough day so my fur babies definitely made me smile.

Arrived at our holiday, 7 hour flight. We got upgraded to premium economy, and were seated upstairs! It was so spacious and soooo quiet and the boys behaved so wonderfully.

Kids were up early and cooperated with getting dressed in plenty of time for school/kinder. So as a reward I let them clean a toilet each (they love spraying the spray).

Last week as we headed for school drop off the kids and I found the beautiful Husky from around the corner out loose.

We’ve met her before so I was confident she was friendly and we had time so we called her into the car (she was so excited to hear her name she dived right in) and drove her home. The gate was wide open and I couldn’t latch/lock it so blocked it with a bin and left a note so they’d know to check the gate.

Today they dropped in some chocolates to say thanks. It was absolutely not necessary, a thanks next time we’re walking past would’ve been more than fine but it was so nice of them.

Went to the Service NSW today.

Their ticket menu is so complicated, they have a person there to press it for you. Winning.

Only had to wait 20 minutes to be seen, and then everything was easy. Now to hope it doesn’t take the 4 weeks they say it will so I can go on dd’s Excursion.

Not sure if it helps but I find Service NSW quiet on Thursday nights, I still pull off dazed and confused and run into furniture but there is less people to see me do it then

DD hurt herself last night, and DS ran up to her and gave her a cuddle. It was so cute, and I thought very perceptive of DS. This morning they played together really nicely, it was so nice to have no fighting!

I got approval for an extension on my assessment I’ve been freaking out about. It’s only 4 days but that makes a huge difference for me.

I messaged DP saying DD was being difficult, there was nothing for lunch and the house was a bombsite.

He messaged back that he is home form work early and will pick me up some lunch.

He can deal with DD while I finish DS room!

There is a Marks and Spencer here in Singapore. I was dubious, but went in. And it’s awesome, everything fitted well, and I got work pants. Not just any work pants though, work pants that I won’t have to take up!!! The “short length” is actually short! And they have pockets!!! And they’re comfy!! And were about $60

Cant believe I had to fly all the way to Singapore to get decent work pants. Tempted to buy 5 more, but now I know my size I can get more on line I guess.

DS1 asked DP to go to a footy game with him. Normally that's something he does with his Dad but this week the boys are at our house, so he asked his Dad if he could use the tickets to take DP instead.

DP doesn't even follow AFL but went and bought a jumper (best and less knock off 😂) for DS1s team and has learnt all the players this season so they can talk about it.

In turn, DS1 has learnt about DPs NRL team.
