a little sneak..
Heres a little sneak peak of the apron I made for the sassy apron swap which should being reaching it's new home soon. This swap's theme was summer which is something that has definitely left us here on the east coast of Oz. It's been raining for the last 3 days and more rain in forecast for the rest of the week (note to self at you need to buy an umbrella and stop putting it off girl!!). I'm looking forward to Saturday (even if it is supposed to be rainy) as I'm sure Camera shopping will lift my spirits :) I can't wait to get some actual 'good' photos up on this blog!
In other completely unrelated news have I ever mentioned how cute I think my dad is and blessed we are to have him in our family? Tonight he cooked us dinner to give mum a break because she is not feeling to well (naaw!) and it was yummy. I really love having a dad who loves to cook (morgan take note here). After dinner as we were sitting around enjoying our after dinner banter conversing and laughing about our days he gets this sudden excitement in his voice and exclaims that tonight is 'just the night for making some rock cakes' (a big favourite of his) He looked at mum with a pleading look and asked if it would be too much trouble and fuss for him to make some tonight and if we had all the ingredients and then off he went. He got out his little blue recipe book where he has recorded all of his mum's best recipes - her potato salad, her casserole and rock cakes - all the favourite ones from his childhood and he was so happy.
So even though the weather has been awful over here it was just so lovely inside the Mac household tonight with the fire glowing, the rain falling outside and dad in the kitchen looking mighty pleased with his progress and I realised that as much as I want to leave home and get a place of my own (with my boy) to decorate and love these are the little moments that I will truly miss and will always think of with fondness. Thank you God for this amazing family you have placed me in!
