went too fast.
We had friends to dinner, Hubby took an overnight fishing trip, the kids and I went to the lake and we sweltered with temps in the high 30's (around 100 for you lot in the U.S.). I fitted in an afternoon nap, lost count of how many loads of washing were done, caught up on last week's episode of Revenge - man, I am loving that show - and got some more work done on a fundraising project that I'm working on for the kids' school. Right now I have this sausage hotpot in the slow cooker and I'm avoiding the overflowing ironing basket.
Here's the Pear Tartlet we had for dessert the other night. They were totally delicious and received lots of compliments. They're from Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals but mine took a bit longer because I didn't have the pre-prepared bits his recipe called for so I did the whole lot from scratch. And yes, I'll do it from scratch again.
And here are the kids at the lake. With their swimming noodles. Don't ask. Offspring #1 was still exclaiming at the chill factor of the water in this shot while Offspring #2...
... well, he's trying to make farting sounds by blowing into the hole in the middle of the noodle. It's a boy thing.
And here's a totally random photo of the sky. Just because it was a beautiful shade of blue, with fluffy clouds and I love the gum trees around the lake.
