Some great ramblings there Keely. i particularly like the mention of Feijoa cider, Peanut Butter Chocolate Blocks and Hokey Pokey Block and then we got to the brownies. Your blog could be a risk to my diet I've decided. Hugs Maree

fabric downstairs needs to be upstairs: as my mother would say, "That's why I had children!" Crack that whip!

They will be SO glad to start school again.

and OMG! FEIJOA cider!! That just sounds AMAZING. (No feijoas in the US.)
