It's just us now, and it feels normal again. But it didn't on Thursday. I was trying to look composed as we drove to preschool on Thursday, but as Luca sadly waved goodbye from the car, he said 'I love having Grandma here', and then the bit that really finished me off: 'why can't Grandma live here?'.
But it was a lovely long month together. Here's what we got up to (linking in with Sunny + Scout).
|Remember this? Well, I don't have to save up now. |
Mum unveiled the teepee that she made for Luca's
4th birthday. Isn't it gorgeous? Mum's thinking about
turning it into a business...

|Despite any attempt I made to warn Mum of the harsh|
Australian sun, she frequently 'forgot' her hat
|A plate of our very own sashimi. Every bit as delicious as it looks.|
Luca gave it a go and spat it on the floor. Oh well.

|Mum and I did lots of eating. Too much.|
|They do bicker despite what these pictures|
might suggest. And they whinge, and they
fight over things. But sometimes they look

And finally to announce who won the books in my giveaway. Bron from Maxabella Loves, you've won Sensual Home, and Greer from Typically Red, I managed to take a name out of a hat for the food book and out you popped, so I guess it's definitely going now! Thank you to those who entered, and well done to the two of you! Drop me a line with your addresses.
(I've been pondering why there were fewer entries than I had expected, but then realised that the blasted word veri has been switched on the whole time on my blog! And I'd been complaining about having to type in those stupid words on other people's blogs! Anyway, mine's off now. For good.)
I'll be back soon with a very exciting gardening post. Well, OK, exciting for me.
