Happy Easter

I have been quite busy since my last post. Making our outside area a nicer place to be and better organise, receiving items to create some new jeans and even some t shirts.

And of course, all the everyday stuff that keeps you busy.

The little corner of our backyard was once a very ugly shed, and that was taken down and put into another more Hidden spot of the backyard.

A little corner garden was created with a variety of daisies, my crazy good lemon grass, and I made these trellises and there will be a passionfruit vine eventually covering these.


I got this little set from Kmart, and I have put some tea light lanterns in the trees…it looks very pretty at night, and it’s a lovely place to sit in the day.

And the kids are using it already.

We are moving our Vegie patches so we have room for our hammock there, and the patches will be in a sunnier position.
My Facebook group, Western Sydney Home Produce Swap Group is going well on Facebook. Currently at 77 and plenty of people are swapping their surplus produce. There’s lots of questions and interesting articles and good Vegie conversations happening.

Here is my latest swap I did.


I have been busy looking online for lovely things to put on jeans and tops and jackets. Can’t wait until I have more time to get going on my recycled jeans. look for   “Patchy_pants” on the etsy site. I will be getting more on there over the coming weeks.


This morning is Easter Sunday, said happy Easter to you, however you spend the day I hope it’s wonderful.

I usually buy my sisters some chocolate for Easter, but actually forgot, so this morn Ng I whipped up some bickies for them. It’s nearly Anzac biscuits however I used coconut syrup instead of golden syrup.

Made double batch and. Used margarine as we didn’t have butter…. must say, they are pretty delicious, of course Raymond’s me and I had the sample one each. The rest are in this little box, all prettied up for them.


Good Friday saw Maddie, Jess and I heading up to Katoomba to go for a bush walk at Minnie haha falls. Unfortunately, I had never seen traffic like it before, barely up the hill and there was so much traffic…we were almost walking up the hill. So once we eventually got to glenbrook we decided t turn around and give on a different adventure.

We got tickets for the Sydney Easter show. We hadn’t been for man years and I must admit I was pretty excited to go without the struggle of a double pram to navigate through the crowds…lol…

It was a great day….way too much junky food, and Jess and I even snuck in a margarita, and Maddie had a non alcoholic one….we saw animals, lots of people (140000 in fact) and Di lots of walking (12km).

We walked through the produce halls, and was in awe at all the wonderful skill that some people have. I actually got myself 4 showbags, and a kewpie doll. Never had one.

Here are some happy snaps from the day.


Well, that’s about it for now

Until next time

Lots of it
