haha- yeah, I know I've been a little slack at my blog this last week- but man, School holidays really have had me running around outside the home (Wayne was away for just over a week again so it's MOM, MOM and oh MOM) - and I was busy getting something really special finished-*hee hee*- but that will be revealed later this week. ( can't miss this one!!!)

Thanks for the fishcake recipes- I haven't tried them out yet- hahahahaha, But Nathan did grill us some gorgeous pieces the other night - ALL BY himself- wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee. And it was perfect! Lightly basted in a butter, lemon and garlic sauce and browned on the top just right, moist and not dry at all!  Served with a fresh green salad too- I was sooo chuffed for him, and he kept asking if it was ok- Hell boy, how many compliments you want huh??- hahahaha.

Funny how that is in this house- even when Wayne cooks, you have to tell him about 5 times minimum just how good it is LOL.( I'd tell him 100x if it keeps him at the stove- BWWWWWAHAHAHAH). Are your men the same??

Nathan goes on his hike to Rhodes on Thursday. There is a huge race that is held there every year in the snow ( running one that is) and the schools hiking club go up and help with the route. They also CAMP in the snow and I've had to spend a lot of time this past week looking for thermals and a down sleeping bag that wasn't going to bankrupt me- hahah. We found one that was on sale and can is has a comfort factor up to -15C!! He must be freaking DAFT! hahahah

Last year the water pipes froze by lunch time -  that he went door to door asking for a hot shower- BWWWWAHAHAHAHA. OMG, he so takes after me that way it's scary. The lovely old lady that eventually let these too strange teens into her house even made them hot chocolate and gave them biscuits! He said he will go and say a hi again this year and probably beg for a shower again- OUCH !

And my CT have been hanging on patiently for me to finish what I was doing- lol, and have been keeping themselves busy making us some AWESOME gifts!

LOL! My sweet darling is definitely the same. I have to listen to a detailed description and then compliment/assure him of the wonderfulness of it! That's OK, I didn't have to cook it, ha, ha!

Thank you for the fabulous mask & brushes!

We don't let my sweet husband Will into the kitchen - my kids swear he boils water wrong. THE PRINCESS has been turning into a pretty fair cook, but she needs LOTS of compliments afterwards (of course, she rather expects a certain amount of flattery anyway, being both blonde and royalty).

Thanks for all the cool gifts! I'm heading over to wish your sis a Happy Birthday now. Hugs!
