This week...

Autumn has well and truly arrived..and is most welcome in my opinion. There has been a little baking, daily bread and a baked dinner (Daniel, second generation Italian declares baked dinners his favourite... and made me take a photo for the blog despite my dislike of using flash!).  Some unpacking and then washing of woolens. Doing a few rows of knitting here and there. Secretly watching what those kid's are getting up to outside.

It has also been the first week of school holidays, which has been lovely in some ways...and a little challenging in others.

Have a lovely Friday.


  1. When I think of "living the good life" - days & weeks like these are exactly what I think of. xx

  2. Your images definitely spell Aumtumn to me :)
    Love this time of year.

    Did you knit the socks in the last pic?
    And that to share your recipe..pretty please!!


  3. Sad to say that I did not knit the socks - they were an op shop buy.
    The bread is from the Artisan Bread in 5 mins a day book...I find it's the only method at the moment that I have time for! It's roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons each of both yeast and salt in 3 cups lukewarm water. Then 6 1/2 cups flour. Mix and leave until risen and flattened on top. Add to loaf pan and let it sit for 20 mins or so. Bake in 230 degree celcius oven. Think that's about it!

  4. what lovely pictures, Tania! I love your new blog header too

  5. I love your collection of photos Tania, captures your week beautifully!

    Autumn is my favourite time of year, wish it could be like that all year round.

    We just spent the week in Victoria and it is way colder than where we live, we absolutely froze lol! Not sure where you are located but as Victoria is already on school holidays I presumed that is where you are. Our holidays start now...


  6. Beautiful photos this week Tania. Lots of beautiful colours and in all of those sweet knits. I love the bike that your daughter is riding on, I had that exact one when I was little:) Have a wonderful weekend. xo

  7. You certainly do capture the season well, love your photo's, your children are just adorable... I am so going to try your bread, Looks delish! I have just made a batch of Hot Cross Buns, they are in the oven now and smelling real Good...We have the same little trike your daughter is riding, it's a good one! Enjoy the rest of your week... :)

  8. Beautiful photos. You live in such gorgeous surroundings! xo

  9. Oh I love that pile of winter woollies!
    And that dinky trike! How fabulous. My sister and I had one just like it when we were small and she used to give me rides down our fairly steep driveway. I still remember my mum coming out and screaming at us to stop and as soon as she was back inside we would do it again!

  10. Thanks Tania, will be trying your bread for lunch today :)
