We have been home from our trip to Queensland for just over a week. I am still sorting through the many photographs so I can do a post on here.
We were away for three weeks and while gone our quandongs (wild peach) ripened and were mostly laying on the ground beneath the trees. So we collected up as many of the good ones we could,
and hubby set to work de-seeding them in preparation for stewing. He was kind enough to do the cooking for me...
The end result...
a yummy wild peach pie.
We had our grandson sleep over the other night. His mum had to work and dad was working away so we picked him up from school.
He thought he was in need of a little exercise on the Wii fit
(something I bought for keeping me fit, but I rarely get on it)
oh the concentration..
And a little bit of dinky car fun.
He also got me to dragged out our two large boxes of lego for some construction learning.
To finish off he wanted to play mathletics on my laptop. A great site for the littlies to learn maths. I was very surprised at how good he is at doing sums and he is a very good reader. Our son also goes on this site from time to time.
The little fella ate all his dinner, had a shower and hopped into bed for a good nights sleep. Next morning, bright and early at 6.30 I could hear him up and about, so I crawled out of bed to find him all dressed in his school uniform playing quietly with the lego :)
Our grandson doesn't get to sleep over much so it was great to spend some quality time with him, they grow up so quickly, I can't believe he is already 6 1/2 years old.
We have experienced an interesting week of weather, from pouring rain when we arrived home, to freezing cold and fire on at night, to two days of 31C (87.8F) on Thursday and 34C (93.2F)on Friday. Today it is back to cold again with a little more rain, but it will warm up to 34C (93.2F) by Thursday again next week. The weather really can't make up its mind.
A busy week ahead for me, I have three houses to give a full clean from top to bottom, oh the joy...
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend,
