Wow, there's a few cobwebs around here.
The late summer/back to school combo got the best of me, but I promise I haven't been idle.
Neither has the mister - he finished his epic, 7 day biking event in the Alps. After 780km, 19 cols (biiiiiig hills) and 21,000m of ascent he was mighty tired when he crossed the finish line in Nice, right in front of the Mediterranean.
He was a little gaunt too, as they tend to be after an endurance event. I set to work fattening him up again.
It helps that the figs are in season:
And we have easy access to lots of double cream soft cheeses:
We managed to squeeze in two date nights - including one in lovely Ansouis:
Then there was the whole back to school routine. Two in primary school, one spending mornings at the maternelle school (preschool) and the baby with two afternoons of garderie (creche). The routine took some getting used to but now we've got it down pat.
Lots of admin for our move home to Australia in January as well. House renovations, new schools, finding daycare, part-time work, inventories and flights. Feeling better now we've broken the back of it.
We've booked an autumn holiday for Malta! I'm really excited we're going.
Of course there's been some sewing:
And just to give myself a big kick into action I joined up for the Travellin' Pic-Stitch Blog Hop (details on Katy and Laura's blogs). Did you know that EPP stands for English Paper Piecing? I've got a lot to learn before October!
Hope you've all been good this past month. I've got lots more to show you but until then I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
