"Hello followers! How are you all? I've missed you. I've been away on (another) road trip to Canberra! And a 4 day long holiday with relatives in Noosa after that. Rather tired at the moment. Did you miss me?"
Yes, I'm back in the blogging world once again! *sigh* It's good to be back : )
The holiday was very educational, but tiring. ' Lots to do in such little time' would have been our motto! But out of the road trip we got some nice photos.
|along the way to canberra, we stopped at places to do with astronomy. they set up the planets and there size and distance from the 'sun' (which was a big telescope).|
|a funny photo in the mirror in one of the astronomy museums|
|sophie and i feeding the giraffes carrots at western plains taronga zoo|
|at the war memorial in canberra. all the poppies that people had put on their friends and family who had died in the wars.|
|the pool in the middle of the old building|
|in front of the big 'dish'! an amazing radio telescope thingy that i didn't really understand at all : )|
|outside the war memorial. you can just see parliament house in the distance|
|the little buildings set up at cockington green. so cute!|
|they smelled beautiful|
|missy had to pose with my sunnies!|
|all the children (except for india) dressed up in different period outfits at the old parliament house in the heart of canberra|

Another educational, interesting, challenging and fun road trip! But let's say goodbye to them, for we won't be doing another trip for a while at least. Time to relax a bit and not have all the holidays filled up, says I!
And a big round of applause for the wonderful guest posters who kindly contributed to Roses and Bluebells! Unfortunately again, one of my guest posters did not post at all. It's the second time that's happened and it's can be unhelpful with getting out of date with the other posters etc. : (
Oh, and it was Mum's birthday yesterday, so I made her a lemon cake. To cheer up her day a bit. Think: Everyone sick with fevers and cold except for the youngest two, stuck at home all day while Dad goes to work! Not the ideal birthday. And the annoying thing is that something went wrong with the cake too! It kind of fell apart. (don't ask me why. in the book, it doesn't mention anything about it falling apart and the photo of the cake looks amazing!)
But I did take some photos of it any way...
|and this is the same cake in the recipe book!|
I'm disgusted, really. (if you want to try your luck at it, then here's the recipe and more photos.
K, that's all from me for now. See you all lovelies and I hope that there will be the giveaway post up on Roses and Bluebells by Saturday or something. It depends on a few sponsors and how soon they email me as to say if they're definitely sponsoring. But yeah, something you don't want to miss, so keep an eye out for that : P
p.s. the wedding is in 4 days!! i'm so excited. there will be many photos from the day i'll post for you all to see, i promise. i still find it hard to believe that i'm being a bridesmaid! really special...
