Howdy all! It's back-to-school time here in Australia, so for this week's Mum's Business article I've created some FREE printable notes you can hide in your kid's lunchbox for a nice surprise at lunchtime! All you have to do is print them off, cut them out, write a little 'Love from Mum (or Dad)' if you wish, and pop them in the lunchbox. My mum would sometimes put a cute little note in our school lunches, I remember it made my day when I opened up my lunchbox to find a sweet little 'Have a great day' or 'I love you!' message. You can download them right here. Have fun! xo

|We've been eating our rainbow carrots and spuds mmm!|
|Bean and pumpkin flowers turn into....|
|Beans! And (baby) pumpkins!|
|Waiting for blueberries to ripen. And we've had a HUGE big bumper crop of strawberries this year mmm! I've frozen enough for a huge batch of jam and I think we'll even have enough to make sorbet too.|
|Little green crab apples and cumquats starting to ripen.|
|My Summer garden is not complete without basil! Sage and silver thyme grow alongside parsley, oregano and rosemary for super fresh instant flavour in all sorts of dishes.|
Helloooo! Wowsers things have been B-U-S-Y. Pedal to the metal, all systems go! Great to have such a lot of work on so early in the year but my poor old blog has been a bit neglected. How have you been? Are you well? I hope so! Summer is kicking along here and it's such a nice time of year in the vegie patch. Thought I'd share a few snaps of my garden this week :) The chickens are doing really well too yay! Oh yeah we named them all... They're all named after dragons, with Godzilla (OK so that is a monster not a dragon) - the blue chook, Falcor - the araucana and Mushu - the gold.

Happy New Year lovelies! Did you have a nice Christmas and New Year's Eve? I hope you all had a rockin time. I had a rad time! Christmas was extra special, being Elora's first, and New Year's Eve was a nice laid-back evening with some good friends and a fabulous bottle of Tasmanian champagne - yummy!
Anyway - just a quick link to my latest Mum's Business article - 'Pimp Your 2012 Diary'. Thought I would share this super easy project with you all, so if you fancy making your diary look a bit funk-ay this year, why not give it a go?! Find instructions here. Hope you're all doing great - Happy 2012!
