My step dad's, mum's, 1st cousins, wife Irene (got that?) gave me a very special book yesterday. An antique cooking book from about 1908! How cool is that!! One from her personal collections. It's pretty amazing and I can't wait to get home and give some of the old recipes a go. For example the Boiled Pigs Head.. ahhh I don't think so. Perhaps the good old fashion Butter Scotch would be a better one to try first.

Right this very second I am sitting on my Nan & Pop's balcony over looking Lake Macquarie. The girls are getting ready to go fishing again with their Poppy, and Heath has taken Mitch for a walk along the lake. And how good is mince on toast!?? Soo yum, I just had that for breakie.. Thanks dad x

Thank god for crocheting! My new favorite portable thing to do. We have had a few little road trips these holidays and the sewing machine would have been a bit heavy on my lap in the car. So I have decided to make a crocheted blanket. Not sure how long it will take me, cause I like the whole "make and finish something right now, if not yesterday " approach, but I'm going to give it a go. Patients is the key here for me.
