Around Here

Around here I haven't taken as many photos over the last few weeks and find after I do my "Week in the Life" photo project I tend to have a little break from taking photos.  My WITL 2018 photo book arrived from America and I love it.  I have to go back and complete 2013 and 2015 and turn the photos into a photo book but at least I have taken the photos.

I have recently joined "Old Brisbane Album" facebook page where people post old photos of Brisbane and if they can a current photo of the same thing.  I've seen lots of tram photos and old Brisbane City Council buses when they were orange back in the day and it reminds me how important my "Week in the Life" project is by documenting everyday life.  The clothing, the cars, the buildings you can really tell what era a photo is and while life today might not seem that interesting in 20 years time it will be.  It's been such a great page to join and a lot of it has been a trip down memory lane for me.

This Friday the kids are on school holidays so it will be nice to spend more time with them not having to rush out of the house each day for school.  It's hard to believe we are at the end of half way through 2018 already.

Here's a link to some recipes that might be of interest over the school holidays.

These are amazing Raspberry Lemon Muffins, more like a cake really but 100% delicious.

Best bread roll recipe ever and they are so light and fluffy.

Swedish Meatball recipe which is so tasty and 100% better than Ikea meatballs.

Our very famous Chicken & Leek pies that the kids love.

Five Seed Bread which the kids love and Sienna made this a couple of weeks ago and it's more of a "Toast" bread so yummy and healthy for them.

This is my Mother In Law's recipe and amazing...Apple Slice recipe.

Our friend's dog will be visiting again over the holidays while his family are away.

Good old Aussie Kookaburra

My tween-ager.


  1. Oh, I love that dappled light behind your kookaburra, Kathy. That's just gorgeous. I was trying to photograph a kooka up at Jolly's Lookout the other day but he or she just kept flying off! Meg:)

    1. I was pretty close and I had a zoom lens on too...although the ones at our BBQ spot seem pretty tame.

  2. I can't wait to try some of those recipes Kathy, thanks for sharing. 😋

    1. I love going back through recipes on my blog for myself too...sometimes you get in a rut cooking the same things.
