Birthdays, Knitting and Veggies

Kye discovered a huge carrot in the veg garden!

Marin’s pattern will be released soon

We’ve had a wonderful weekend, our Easter was lovely consisting of a traditional early morning Easter egg hunt in the front garden. Richard always gets up really early and hides the eggs for everyone. Kye loves the egg hunt and even though the girls are getting older, I think they still enjoy it too, my oldest babies are both growing up too quickly… Later we saw family who were visiting from Zim, it was so nice to connect again after quite a few months.

Yesterday was Erin’s 15th birthday! We played Adventure Golf in the morning, went out for lunch and saw family and friends in the afternoon. She had a fantastic day!

Kye has been growing carrots and I seriously cannot believe the size of that carrot he’s holding! Wow!

I want to say a big Thanks You to Anne who has gone over my Marin Spring Horse pattern for me to see if everything is in order. I really appreciate you taking the time to do this for me Anne. There will be a small test knit starting soon as well. I will ‘earburn’ a few of the lovely test knitters from previous test knits as soon as the pattern is ready (for all those not on Ravelry, ‘earburn’ just means to ‘message someone directly’. Earburn does sound rather awful doesn’t it? :) )

Happy Wednesday!

Our Week

Charlie Po


Guinea Fowl Photo

It has been a week of illness here, both the girls have had flu and Erin also had a tummy bug. The weather has changed almost overnight from summer to winter and we already have our fires going. I need to bring all the warm knitted socks and hats out from storage and also start knitting a few more.

My Guinea fowls are finally finished and will be on their way to their new home soon. We are back into the busy business of homeschooling, extra murals and lessons. So many assignments are due in May and the exam series starts again in June, our new teacher has started and she is wonderful!

Oh yes, I just had to run and fetch my camera when I walked into our school this morning and discovered our very large Charlie had wedged himself, quite comfortably into this tiny shoebox. He is incredibly happy and snug and hardly even noticed me right in front of him taking pics. Too cute!

Hope your week has been lovely so far!

What’s in the Compost Heap?


This is Charlie, affectionately known as Charlie-Poe

What could it be?

More Curious


Guess I’ll have to just wait and see…


We’ve dug a new bed near the kitchen door, I’m going to plant veggies and flowers in it. I want to utilize as much space as possible for growing our own vegetables. I’ve spoken to the kids about how I want to work in the garden and try to have a continuous supply of food, they seem keen to help. Yay!


Richard and Kye have set up a little camp site in the back garden, Kye’s been wanting to camp in the garden for ages, he’s SO excited it’s happening!

Green and Red Peppers

These are a few treasures from the garden. I really LOVE peppers and they’re so easy to grow.


Red Peppers


Have a lovely weekend.
