One of the things I started making regularly is home made yoghurt. I have a Thermomix and a Thermomix warmer which is basically a bowl that's like a thermos to keep things cold or warm. I first made yoghurt in December 2013 and I was amazed it was so simple. The recipe I currently use is Fiona's from Stay Home Instead. I add a little bit of maple syrup at the end to make it a tiny bit sweeter however the one litre milk makes two jars and then a few tablespoons left over as a starter for the next batch. I was very nervous to first make yoghurt however it's pretty simple to make. Do you regularly make yoghurt for your family?
I pop the thermo warmer in a beach towel and then I leave it for 24 hours before I decant it into the jars.
After 24 hours ready to pop into the jars and into the fridge.

If you are looking for a lovely nature documentary I can highly recommend you sit down and watch "My Octopus Teacher" on Netflix. It stars Craig Foster who also produced the film. He was a burnt out film maker and suffered from depression and one day when he was freediving he came across an octopus and then every day for over 300 days he went back to the same place to visit the octopus. He then describes the effect of his experience with the octopus on his relationship with his son, and his son's development as a diver and a student of marine life.
When I suggested to my kids we watch a documentary they weren't too keen however they did think the movie was great and learnt a lot of things about octopus. The images and cinematography is absolutely stunning. At times when he was talking about his relationship with the octopus it was a little bit over the top however aside from that, it's a brilliant educational and emotional story with beautiful photography which was filmed in South Africa and a must watch film.
