Lunch with the Ladies

Just a little peek at a lunch I recently hosted for my sister in law Jo's birthday and for us all to have a little catch up before Hugo Maxwell arrived!

Nine mothers and twelve children, including a set of twins and a newborn...........we had it all.

On the menu were chicken, mushroom and leak pies with rocket pear and parmesean salad, dressed in a sticky balsamic, follwed by individual lemon and sour cream cakes for dessert.

A fun time was had by all, both mums and babes which proves you CAN entertain with children! 

The next day I did it all again but this time for four ladies and no kids.

I love an entrance!

I love an entrance! 

So many farm houses have one but nobody uses them............what a waste.

When we were building our house I deliberately set up our round driveway to make visitors enter through our front door and into our entrance hall. 

I think first impressions are so important.

What is your entrance like?

Thanks to Susan from Lemon Tree Photography for taking these pics for me.

It's a boy!

I am so happy to announce to you all that I have a beautiful new baby nephew Hugo Maxwell born on Thursday at 8.58am and weighing in at 9lb 8oz (a week before his due date!).  

He was the baby I referred to in my The Shed Before and After post whose conception was blamed on my launch night!

We were lucky enough to be able to scoot off to Adelaide yesterday to meet him! 
Straight to The Shed for bunting, bunny and singlets for our precious little nephew.

My big boy Ollie is completely taken with him and the proudest big cousin ever and I am a very proud Aunty too!

My husband was lucky enough to be able to swan off on a "farm tour" today with one of his boarding school friends Wes, whilst I and my lovely friend Susan from Lemon Tree Photography  (who took these photos of my little Tommy) were flat out on my house shoot for a mag (details soon). 

The day was not without drama we had a visit from a HUGE BROWN SNAKE!

Thankyou Susan you are amazing! xx
