A Weaving Workshop At Miss Kizzy...

Usually our little Sunday adventures around here include the kids. Last Sunday I took myself on my own solo adventure.  To learn something new. Something that I have been admiring for awhile. Wondering just how complex the whole process would be. So.. when I heard that the new shop in town was holding a 'weaving workshop' - I jumped, ran, at the chance to take part.   
Have you seen some of the crazy beautiful weaves/weavings/wall hangings around. I've been following a few on Instagramlike.. Warped ThreadsWool and weave, and Julie Nicholson Artist. They are just so lovely. 
Such a great way to dress up any room. Currently I've chosen to tackle my dining room area ... so stay tuned on that one. 
My great adventure begins by losing my card in the stupid ATM down the road, arriving a little late and being welcomed with big smiles, relaxed faces and busy hands. It was wonderful, about 10 eager ladies sitting around a table which was laden with an abundance of yarns and twin…

Brown Rice Summer Salad Recipe - Make Friends With This Salad....

This salad is sure to win you a few new friends at the next BBQ! It's fresh, it has crunch and just the right amount of tang. Or you may simply choose to make it for dinner one night, the next time the weather is just ridiculously Hot! I've been making this salad and combining it with some chorizo sausages.

Simple to make, it really is a no fuss, filling dinner that won't have you breaking a sweat.
You will need...
1 cup brown rice 200g full cream feta (chopped) 200g semi dried tomatoes (chopped) Sugar-snap beans (chopped) 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tbsp olive oil fresh baby spinach leaves (chopped)
(Optional - serve with Chorizo Sausages(4) )





Prepare the brown rice as per the package directions. Then once cooked place in a colander and run some cold water over the rice (this will stop the cooking process and as this salad is best served cold, will help quicken it to the table). 
Transfer the rice to a large bowl and then add the chopped feta, semi dried tomatoes and sugar-snap beans. Give…

Axel: A little sad losing the ball in the water. But all is ok when there are seagulls to chase after.

Off On An Adventure.... Beachside Walk...

A Sunday well spent, brings a week of content'....... Well this sure was a Sunday well spent. A stunning beach-side walk along our beautiful coastline. I have been hoping to discover a walk like this, something that the kids could enjoy just as much as us. An easy, "as long as you like" walk, right alongside the water. If you are anywhere close to the Central Coast of NSW then this is a MUST to put on your "to-do" list. Not just for a walk, there are also camping spots just up from the beach (complete with toilets ... no digging your own hole.. haha). There are three walks you can chose to do, from just over 1km to up to 3.5km. I think we pumped out just over a 2km, which was long enough for the little one's legs. You can find out more details about the 'Bouddi Coastal Walk' here. This has now become one of my favourite places, and I look forward to visiting again. I reckon it would be the perfect spot during the Whale migrating season too!
