what i want my children to know #3

your value doesn't decrease because of someone's inability to see your worth.
believe in yourself.

what i want my children to know #2

think for yourself.
everyone around you has an opinion. on everything. 
but always listen to your inner voice.
do what you know is right.
some decisions are hard. some things are scary.
but when you know in your heart
that it is the right one
it makes all the difference.

ravioli heaven

hand kneaded dough 
stretched and rolled
then filled with a mix of sausage, sage, onion and cheese
cooked and drained
then served with 
a chunky tomato sauce

made from scratch 
every step of the way
by my son

a truly proud mumma moment

a time to relax

five days away
just my (not so little anymore) loves
and me.
medical check-ups,  combined with the alleviation of stress
that automatically comes
from travelling abroad.

menu planning

as long as i am planning to have proper meals at lunch and dinner
{think grilled fish and veggie stir fry}

it's okay to have brownies for breakfast, right?

bring me all the fans

hot doesn't even begin the describe the inside of my home right now.
outside, the air is still, dry and stifling at 33 celcius
the leaves are caked in a film of grey dust
the soil is parched
even the birds seem to be praying for rain

inside i am in an oven
being baked alive
and when the weather report tells me 
that there is zero chance of precipitation 
i want to just buy myself a ticket to the north pole

dear lord,
in this time of political vengeance and unrest
within this tiny community
turn our hearts towards you
bring us together
and cultivate in us
a greater capacity for understanding
