Pancake Sunday

It's been 20 years, 3 weeks and 4 days since I last ate homemade pancakes and I feel that's exactly 20 years, 3 weeks and 4 days too long. We bribed incentivised our niece into cooking pancakes on Sunday morning if she behaved the night before and I'm happy to report this $2.50 bribe worked a treat. I lost count of the number of times we said the word "Pancakes" over the space of two days.

Sunday morning arrives and this little human stands at my door waiting to jump into bed with us. We spent some time laying and not talking which, is absolutely lovely by the way. Said little human then turns to me and whispers "the magic word is Pancakes, so when Uncle Tim says Pancakes we can get out of bed and go cook some breakfast". I can't argue with that logic or the fact that we had a magic word in our midst.… After we constructed a giant pillow fort and the announcement of the magic word, we were downstairs spilling syrup over our pyjamas quicker than you can say Pancake.

Burns & Babysitting

I need to stick to what I know. Flowers, and naps, and over-sharing about my life on the internet. Last night I tried to outdo myself and imitate the wonderful Donna Hay in the kitchen. It looked simple and easy enough for a novice like Moi, but after adding another oven burn to my arm of existing oven burns I reconfirmed my inability to cook and walked away…to the fridge, to get some salted caramel ice-cream and sit on the couch to watch Masterchef (if you can't beat 'em, join 'em).

I'm getting all the rest and sitting in silence time in that I can because this weekend, Tim and I are doing our first overnight babysitting duties for our niece. For her sake I hope I'm better at being a babysitter than I am at being a cook. A park date has been arranged, a pixar film has been picked, and packet pancake mix has been purchased for Sunday morning, where I will watch on from a far at all the fun being had from the safety of the couch so no pancake is injured during the process.

P.s. we had the most amazing sunset tonight and it really made me smile. It didn't however look so wonderful amongst rooftops and power lines so I didn't get any pictures. You're just going to have to trust me that it was pretty lovely and enjoy these flowers instead.

Have a great weekend now won't you!

The Month That Was || June

Don't blink!! If you do you're going to miss the rest of 2015 and wake up on New Years Day 2016 with a sore head, blistered toes from your heels and a tattoo of a dolphin that seemed that a good idea at the time. Juuuust kidding, maybe a Batman tattoo instead because I'm sassy like that. I don't know what it is about the end of June but I feel immense pressure to start achieving all those things I thought I would when I enthusiastically rung in the new year all those months ago.

I blame the End Of Financial Year advertising that floats around in June. The panic those advertisers put in me to get things done before JUNE THIRTY gets me flustered and before you know it I've purchased a brand new car. Yay for new car smell! If nothing else is achieved from now until the end of the year, I feel getting myself into more debt is a big tick off my list of 2015 goals. Excellent hustle Megan.
