Indulging in Australian Dairy Cheeses at Maroondah Reservoir Park

Hubby and I headed out to the Maroondah Reservoir Park near Healesville a couple of weeks ago with our Australian Dairy Cheeses hamper. We decided to drive out there, have a picnic together and indulge in this delicious assortment of goodies which was kindly given to us by Dairy Australia. It included some Australian Dairy Cheeses, Australian wine and some extra delectable condiments.Read more

A Morning Coffee With Me…

Hi there and how are you today. If you have come over from Pips place, welcome! I’m Simone, come into my lounge and lets find a spot to sit down on the couch. I can put the kettle on or would you like a coffee. I love using my coffee machine, a latte or cappuccino?

It seems so long ago now but back in May I enrolled in a fantastic blogging course called Blog with Pip. I met some lovely new friends and even learnt some new things about blogging too. I might even go back and enrol for the July group.

Now although the course has finished, our last thing to do is to share our 5 things that we are loving right now and join in with Pip over at meet me at mikes. She is hosting A Cuppa Tea with Me so her May students can share some things about themselves. Unfortunately I don’t drink tea as I love coffee too much. The only time I have drunk tea is when I had morning sickness with all five pregnancies and last check, I am not pregnant! But I might put the kettle on and grab a tea bag if I feel the sniffles coming along. A nice warm cuppa will fix that.

So, with our nice warm drinks and a special morning treat here are my five things I am loving right now…

1. My cup of coffee. I always have one in the morning at around 9.30 am. It’s my routine and I love it. And if I have done some baking for the kids, I will indulge in a treat for testing purposes of course! Baked good seen here were Jam rolls made with small bread rolls and baked in the oven. I made these for the kids breakfast this morning. School holidays have started so I get to try out some new breakfast recipes. These were very nice and the kids liked them, tick!cupcoffee 2. Venturing out and going for a walk with my hubby. Exploring new parks and places. Enjoying some ‘we’ time.

I have missed being able to sew. But not anymore, there will be more sewing projects to come!hottieproject14c4. Baking in my kitchen. Just making, baking and making! I love trying new recipes and the best bit is I have lots of helpers to test them for me. I made this for breakfast last Saturday. It is a german style oven pancake. Very yummy, hubby and I had two servings! We had a good reason, we needed that extra serve so we could finish off our coffee!cupcoffee5. Using my Nikon D3200 dslr camera. Hubby bought this for me for christmas. I love photography. I am learning all the time how to use my camera and enjoy jumping into the car and finding places we can visit to take photos. This photo was taken on my birthday weekend getaway. Hubby and I went to Daylesford for a weekend and found this church between towns. It was a beautiful church just sitting there in the open between fields of grass and fences.daylesfordtripWell, what a lovely chat we have had! I am glad that you dropped by. Now don’t leave it too long between visits. I would love to put that kettle back on. There might just be a freshly baked treat sitting on the bench cooling.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

See you next time,

P.S. Normally I do a post about what is happening in my garden or parks that I have visited. Anyone can join in and you share your garden, someone else’s or a park that you have been to. All you do is link your blog via the linky at the bottom of my post. But since we are having a tea party today I have postponed it. I don’t want to miss out on all the fun. I love having a chat and meeting new friends. There might even be some of you that would like to join in next time. The more the merrier, I say!!

What we did on Mothers Day

kangarooground8kangarooground3 kangarooground2 kangarooground4kangarooground7 kangarooground6 kangaroogound1Now I know Mothers Day was over a week ago for us in Australia but I wanted to share with you these lovely photos of what we did on Mothers Day. It was such a beautiful day weather wise so we headed out for a little drive and ended up at the Kangaroo Ground War Memorial Park and Tower of Remembrace. It was such a lovely place for taking photos especially up in the tower. There were such amazing views all the way around.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Mothers Day afternoon!
