Hello. Apologies for my rather long absence from this space. I've had some computer issues this week and could not connect to the internet. I am also unable to download any new photos. Two issues that I don't think are related. I'm afraid I don't cope well with computer issues, nor am I very good at resolving them. My patience just flies out the window and I have had to distance myself from the computer for several days before attempting to get back online again. A new modem means I am back online, but the wireless connection is still proving to be elusive. So I am now blogging from the kitchen bench. Which I can't say is an entirely bad thing, but I will need to change a few things around. And find a higher chair.
Meanwhile it's been school holidays, and a rather sociable one at that. With three or four, sometimes five kids around the house, there has rarely been a dull moment. I've been spring cleaning the kitchen, baking rabbit pie, magazine culling and reading Stephanie Alexander's A Cook's Life. We're expecting a few family visits to their nearby weekenders over the long weekend. I've written out a little menu plan for the possible 14 guests that may make their way here.
Outside a strange hot wind is blowing. We're expecting rain, which would be a good thing around here. We had to order a load of water this week. The first in quite some time.
I'm hoping to get some time to play around with the blog set up in the next week or so. Is it just me or has the writing and photos become smaller? I'm afraid I'm not terribly tech savvy, so please bear with me.
I've missed being here and I expect a little catch up blog reading will be on the cards today.
How has your week been? Are you in the midst of school holidays? Any plans for the long weekend?
Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend.
