Day 24 - Freesias and the first rose of the season

A quick Friday flowers post.

The freesias keep blooming, and although the coloured ones are striking, I think I prefer the creamy original "Grandma's Freesia", with a hidden golden throat.

I picked my first rose for the season today. Elle.

Day 23 - First golf lesson

Rob has been keen to get the girls into golf. This afternoon was sunny and a perfect time for a first lesson on our lawn.

Day 22 - Hot

Today was warm. We stayed at home keeping inside where it was cooler. Eventually in the heat of the early afternoon the girls were tired enough to go to sleep for a nap without much fuss. Elisabeth in her cot, Maggie next to me on our bed. After a quick tidy up of the living area and kitchen I joined Maggie and napped for the first time in ages. It was heaven.
Unrelated photos from today.

The girls and their trikes. It's love. Maggie likes to turn hers upside down to "service" it, carefully cleaning everything.

After dinner while I did the washing up the girls joined Rob in the flower garden for a feast of freshly picked alpine strawberries and some weeding. Have I mentioned how much we love daylight savings?

Tomorrow is a public holiday thanks to the Hobart Show, so I am looking forward to a quiet day with Rob home.

Day 21 - Picnic in the park

We had a surprise day together today, as our Family day carer was unwell, so I took the day off to be with the girls. It wasn't a difficult decision to make, especially with the perfect weather.

So we headed into town at lunch, picking up Rob from work and heading to one of our favourite parks in Battery Point with provisions from Jackman and McRoss. The girls enjoyed seeing their Papa in the middle of the day, and we enjoyed eating outside in the shade of some trees together.

It's meant to be even warmer tomorrow, so on our way home we went shopping for bathers and rash tops to go with their new paddling pool.

Day 20 - Lemon linguine

I have written about this pasta before. So I won't repeat the recipe. Needless to say it is very easy to make, even with the girls about, and even easier to eat.
