It's been a long, long time

The very shaggy dog taking up half a queen-size bed!
I started this blog last year and then in the haze of working nearly full time and raising a rambunctious two-year old it got left by the wayside. I kept telling myself I would get back to it once she was sleeping through the night and guess what? She isn't. 
We've now moved to a big girl bed and last night I found her curled up at the base of the armchair, crying. Fantastic.

In the last twelve months we've been busy. We've gone to France and the UK with an 18-month old. We've gone to Melbourne for our lovely friends' wedding, with no 22-month old. Oh the joy. I've taken up craft again and have made three patchwork quilts, wings, tutus and a play kitchen. We've cooked, we've cleaned, we've gardened. We've had our share of heartache with the passing of Nanna and our share of joy with close friends giving birth to delightful little boys. It's the circle of the life.

I'm posting some pics of my craft and cooking - these are the little things that drive me forward through my sleep deprived fog.
