Coffee, Sewing and Magical Fog...

My days are full... my blog is a little neglected... I'm still super addicted to Instagram, Drawsomething and... coffee...

The girls and I are having wonderful times (along with the expected meltdown and tantrum in the mix from both the girls and I ☺)

I was driving Big Little Miss M to her ballet lessons this morning and it was really foggy. I normally absolutely despise driving in the fog but this morning for some reason it just felt magical and looked stunning... 

Straight out of my go to camera of the moment... my phone!
I was all caught up in my imaginings of magical lands like Narnia and the sorts and wanted to share them with BL Miss M so I told her my thoughts on the fog... "It's like we're driving in the clouds." She loved this and told me it reminded her of our recent trip to the snow. "What if it is like the clouds are simply kissing the ground this morning?" I asked her thinking it was a nice, romantic kind of thought... Miss M however, broke my whimsical reverie right then and there with a massive, "EWWWW!!! GROSS MAN! Who want's to kiss wet grass?" I had to laugh - the minds of children always amaze me, whether its realism, fantasy or their wonderful innocent view on life, earth and the everyday!

I finally feel like I've got a bit of my sewing spark back... I rummaged through my fabric stash yesterday (my sewing cave looks like a fabric volcano erupted in there at the moment) and whipped up some new SpaNGle* for Spring Dresses... we're now on the outgoing journey of winter and heading to Spring, more sunshine, gardens and flowers - YAY!

I'm going to be extra ambitious and see if I can fit some more sewing in tomorrow... I've a couple of new patterns I've been meaning to try out for a while now.

Oh and check out this Triple Choc Salted Caramel cheesecake... If you know me in real life you'll know I LOVE food (actually you'd probably think I was OBSESSED with food)... and I love cheesecake

I'm tempted to give this one a whirl... but I can hear my fat cells screaming and feel them swelling at the very thought... I've told a friend that if I make this and we taste test it that she has to do a spin class with me afterwards but I'm thinking it would take one hell of a spin class to burn this baby off! 
Hmmm... you know I'm going to make it - YOLO!

Been itching to 'get-my-Grandma-on'... (that sounded so much better in my head) ...with some knitting and these huge needles - chunky scarf here I come!

Anyhow, I'd best be getting some Z's - tomorrow is our weekly pancake morning and if I'm going to sew and also do the weekly mumsy coffee, kids and fauna park stroll - not to mention the ever growing list of housewifey duties (urgh) I'm going to need my sanity and sleep!

Be back soon I promise... I've still got to do that unicorn cake tute for you, I really want to do another refashioning tutorial and I've some exciting blog sponsorship news to share too!!!

I'll leave you with this poem that I found via Pinterest (yes another time vacuum of an addiction) that just resonates... I typed it up and overlayed it onto a gorgeous rainbow photo I took a couple of weeks ago.

Nighty Nite!


  1. Just had to say...I love those gorgeous spring dresses!

  2. Thanks so much Carol! It's been a little colder than I prefer down here so I needed a little Spring colour and sewing to lift the mood! happy to read you're 'computer drought' has come to an end!! :)
