Another week

Well it has been a hectic week with lots more enquiries (some of which I am unable to do) and a new family starting. We have had visits from friends and scheme staff.

I am about to start proper programming which seems a daunting task when I have not begun yet! But I am sure it will get easier.

I am hoping to take on another new family next week which will mean some very early starts but should work well.

My favourite quote today

Each of us, in the most silent part of ourselves, has always known who we are. The eyes that look into ours from the image in the mirror recognise something that does not change with time or age.

Lamb Pesto

I am really looking forward to eating this tonight, it is from the 4 ingredients cookbook and I will use fresh basil from the garden!

Place Lamb cutlets in foil, put on top pesto, lemon rind and butter, wrap up in foil and cook for 30 mins.

I have also added a new page to my website here, it contains websites I love and also find useful, check it out!

More Veges

Our first broccoli which I have hacked a bit off to put in tonights soup, doesnt it look beautiful though?

And capsicum, not the first- we ate that when it was tiny. These ones have lasted a bit longer but are almost ready to pick!

Ok she is not a vegetable but she does lay around resembling one quite often. This is Beans trying to work out why there is not more food and milk available to her at all times of the day!

Brand new vege patches, courtesy of a very kind freecycler down the round. One has coriander and thyme in it and the other has strawberries and pak choy. Tiff also just planted some carrot and cucumber seeds that will go in when they sprout.

Shepherd's Pie

Made a delicious shepherd's pie last night. Just some chuck steak, carrots, celery, garlic, beef stock, paprika and ground coriander seeds in the slow cooker for a LONG time. Then I put it in a pie dish covered in mashed potato with some finally grated cheese on top. Just delicious!

On the Family Day Care front I am now offering a pick up service in the mornning though it is limited to the number of children I can fit in my car so if you are interested get in quick.

We are starting to fill up

Another week almost finished and we have at least 1 new child starting next week which is great as it is giving our current enrolments some new playmates :)

I made a delicious lemon and coconut slice that I probably shouldnt have eaten as much as I do of! But gosh it was good.

I have added a new page to my website here which I thought might be a good way to answer some of the questions that I often see about Family Day Care.

It is surprising to me that I still encounter parents that have no idea what Family Day Care even is. I guess quite often people just go with what is familiar.
