It’s been so long since my last Project Life update, that it’s back to showcasing two weeks per post! I have to admit, I fell behind a bit during our family holiday which meant that last week I had five whole weeks to catch up on! That was no small feat. It’s definitely nice to feel that I’m back on track now. (Remember you can click on the photos for larger images.)
Week 25 seems so long ago now. Clearly, it was in the middle of winter given Jamie’s attire. It was also a week of comfort food, with homemade pizza by Rick and Chinese rice congee by me. I also love that photo of the three boys (top right) lined up against the windowsill in our dining room, cooking together. They can be pretty cute sometimes.
In case anybody is curious, the last photo in the second row is a red date drink that I like to make when I don’t feel like drinking tea or coffee. My mum got me onto it a few years ago and I’ve been addicted since. It’s easy to make and it’s good for your blood (supposedly). You just boil eight dried red dates with a couple of honey dates in a few inches of water in a small saucepan, leaving it to simmer for about ten minutes and voila! A healthy and delicious caffeine replacement.
Oh, and who doesn’t love seeing an overflowing fruit bowl?
Week 26 was when I started taking photos during the golden hour (top right). It’s one of my favourite photos because it takes the eye awhile to work out that there are actually four people in that shot, amidst all that beautiful golden haze. Jamie discovered he loved rolling around on my sheepskin that week, and I discovered the beautiful tiled floor at the nearby Pattison’s Pattiserie (their coffee is amazing too!). Rick managed a nap and the boys received some a new train set from Nan.
On the right hand page, I included a few photos from Rick’s sister’s birthday brunch, bordered by photos of the boys at home (and some Chinese BBQ pork buns). I love that last one in particular (bottom right) because they were pretending that a stripy sock of Jamie’s was a little kitty that they’d trapped inside the laundry basket. Seriously, for five minutes or more, they were all going “Here, kitty, kitty” to a baby sock. It’s moments like this that I want to remember in years to come.
