271/365 'Scenic Saturday'

Thank you for all of your beautiful words on my last post, we really had a lovely night out together just the two of us.
My hubby and I were lucky enough to have some more time together today, a belated anniversary celebration. I am so grateful to my mother in law who enjoys having the girls allowing us to be able to have time together. We sat together, had the most delicious brunch and really felt like adults. We took a walk along the newly opened river walk and then visited Newfarm Park (where we married 16 years ago). It was good to get some alone time and to soak up the beautiful spring weather. 
Have you had a beautiful Saturday?
Enjoy your Sunday.

269/365 'A Rainy Day'

269/365 'Homemade Sushi'

We are having a pretty quiet week here this week.  There has been the usual shopping trip, a couple of early mornings of athletics training for Miss 15, baking and a trip to the dog groomer for Molly.  As the girls grow trips to the museum and hours of crafting aren't quite the thing to do which is hard for this Mum who has been so used to organising crafting sessions over the holidays for many years.  With nothing much planned today I thought a nice lunch treat might be in order so we made our own sushi.  It was simple and very yummy indeed and cheap too which I liked, bought sushi can be quite expensive for three people one of which is a growing teenager.  I didn't have any sushi rice at home but gave arborio rice a try and it worked perfectly as a replacement.  This is the recipe we used today for our sushi.  For those with teenagers and older children, any great holiday activity ideas?
