Ruby wanted to do some painting, so we found some cardboard things to paint and both the girls got to work. Marlise didn't really need the tissue box that I purposely emptied for her coz it was more fun painting her arm, obviously !
And later, somebody got caught out sitting on the table having the time of her life with a spoon and the last little bit of chocolate icecream - thankyou big sister for giving it to her !!
And while all this was happening, my little fenugreek sprouts were quietly growing.
I made sourcream for the first time by adding 1 tsp of store bought sourcream ( left over from the night before) to 500mL of cream. Mixed them gently together, put a lid on the container and left it for 24 hrs on the bench. Next day, thick sourcream. It was so good with the nachos we had last night !
Ok, look at this picture, do you think she's giving me a hint ?? She wants to go swimming maybe ?? And she insisted on wearing the jumper even though it's hot and humid outside.
So we obliged. What's a weekend without some time for the beach anyway right !! The weather has been getting warmer and warmer...
OK, so now I can't make these pictures bigger anymore, how come?
Nothing beats a bucket and spade and a beach full of sand.

And finally, I made some laundry liquid. I only have about one load worth of my last store bought powder left, so I made this up tonight - i've been saving the milk bottles up just for this purpose. I found the recipe here at the DOWN TO EARTH BLOG. It was so easy to make, and now I have the bottles sitting by the door cooling down. I'll try it out tomorrow.
Homemade laundry liquid - another thing I don't have to buy from the shops...love that !
