Yesterday Kate & the girls and I drove out to the middle of nowhere. I'd never been to Mollongghip and winding our way through the potato fields, under a blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds, it felt like we were in another world.
Finally we came to lovely Steph's house where we chatted and crafted the day away. I think we must have been on Mollonghhip time because it seemed that the day went so slowly and dreamily.
When we finally looked at the clock on the mad ride home and it was just before seven (& felt like five) I realised we really had been in another world.
Lucy learnt to sew using Stephs sewing machine. She made a gorgeous yellow dress for her best doll, Elizabeth.
Sunday, Jazzy & Arkie played outside making potions. Some of my best memories of childhood are of making potions out of flowers.
It was great to hang out with a lovely bunch of women, all different, all amazing in their own way.
I really enjoyed hearing more about Simone's life and I'm looking forward to seeing some pics of her cat & bunny sometime.
The kids played happily with a box of Hama beads, playing with colours & shapes & Pepper was delicious, cuddly & funny.
For me it was a really relaxing day. My kids have been a bit cranky at home, a bit bored and easily annoyed. Spending time at Stephs with other kids and adults changed the tone and I felt like I'd been on a mini crafty holiday. Thanks Steph!
There's something quite magical about being in a group of women and children, making & talking, sharing ideas & thoughts. And eating Kate's chocolate chip biscuits was pretty magical too! Hope you are having a lovely week, see you soon xo
