M.I.L.F Barbie

You got it, milf barbie has arrived hehehhe

My beautiful friend Tink has passed this beauty on to lucky me!
Hidden behind that bump is a baby with a strange
resemblance to pre-historic ape man!
And ta-daa, instant flat tummy afterwards!

& on the home front...
some sewing....
with yum yums from Etsy
if I find a spare 30 seconds between breast feeding & washing...sigh
& if there happens to be surplus to 30 seconds....

Garden faries

Its clean up time in the garden, with the help of the chooks & the girls.
Still cooking up tomatoes like mad.
A huge batch of roasted tomato pasta sauce made today.
Any suggestions for some interesting winter vege crops to get started?

Fleurs pumpkin

We went to check on fleur's giant pumpkin after the rain the other day...
and it has grown 'gimantis'. How cute is that?

I've been seriously neglecting the garden lately. Every thing is being taken over by morning glory. The glass house was bursting with tomatoes and before they went to ruin we picked them all and cooked them up for the freezer. This massive basin full made 6 bags, roughly 500ml of pulp per bag, I think that seriously puts into perspective how much food you need to grow if you want to be self sufficient. Don't get me wrong, we certainly grow to keep our food costs down and because we like to know how our food has been grown...not to mention that we love to garden too! But a big high five to the greenies out there who can really live totally un-dependant of the supermarket...power co.....should I go on??

Last but not least, a Birthday kiss for my Baby. Alex turned 11 the other day.
Having Imogen brought back cool memories of Alex when he was a little boy.
I can't believe he'll be at high school in 2 years!
It certainly doesn't feel like that long ago, and I'm so proud of the beautiful, kind, sensative young man he is becoming. A wonderful big brother for all his baby sisters oxox
I think the first child is always a little bit of the Guinea pig. I wish in many ways I knew even some of the things I know now...poor Alex!
Yes babies...cripes!...My brain is totally suffering at the moment! Lucky there's a spell check on here aye!

I'm off to my 'studio now' Oh yeah you heard...'my STUDIO!' yep all finished and moved in...WHOOPEE, but not quite ready for bloggy pics yet as I'm still unpacking, or rather wish I was unpacking but seem to be only breast feeding in there!
Stay tuned though, my next post will be gorgeous pics of I'm ranting ain't I?
