The prettiest hen house in Perth

I've been wanting to post photos of our friend's chook yard, look at it! Even without chooks I had massive hen house envy the first time I saw it.

While I snapped away at the chook house Charlie enjoyed their swing, hung from a huge old olive tree also in the back yard.

I was in Perth last week during the week for the first time since we left. It was great to have the extra days to relax whilst there. Did a spot of cloud watching with Dad.

I even had time for a bit of this!

Beau's Quilt

We had lunch in Freo and Charlie fit in perfectly, look at him with no shoes on! It's ok, big Charlie bought him his first pair of sandals across the road at Target.

We'll be back again this weekend for Kings Of Leon!

The Weather

has been changeable around here. Unfortunately we went from this

to this...
2011 1103

in the space of a day last week.

The crops were looking so great around here and rain is not something the farmers want now that the crops have hardened off.

Fingers crossed that it will still be a good year.

We're having our first hot days and the shorts have been cracked out.

The Mr said he liked my look* the other night so I thought I'd hop on Polyvore and have a go at recreating it. I've been aware of Polyvore for a long time but seriously do not need another distraction on the internet. However, I am in love with Pinterest and often see a Polyvore 'set' that I like, so I've given in to temptation.

This is my first attempt and after only one go I can say it is pretty fun, I can see myself spending a bit of time on there. I'll have to see if they've got an app for the Iphone so I can create outfits while I breastfeed the wee man to sleep. You know, cause I like to multitask, and you need two hands for Bejeweled Blitz.


* I wasn't actually wearing shoes or earings or sunglasses but it would have been a pretty bare set without them, and if I didn't buy ten dollar sunglasses from the Red Cross I would totally get those Ray Bans.

Agricultural Show

CHOGM and the long weekend are both over.



I went to my first country show. Had the lightest fluffiest donuts. yum. Won a first and a second in the photography section, and watched Theo Kalogeracos make pizza dough.

Friends from Perth with a little boy 5 days older than Charlie came too, so we had another fantastic weekend. And on the boys suggestion we watched Bridesmaids, I haven't laughed so hard at a movie for a long time.
