Recently life has been busy. Very busy. Our days our filled with trying to get settled into our house, finishing up the school year, cub scouts, soccer, music and swimming. I can't seem to figure out how to keep up with the laundry and we still don't have a kitchen. Although, we do have a stove!! There are toys everywhere and the legos have literally taken over. Does anyone else struggle with these toy invasions?? It absolutely drives me crazy. I had a moment of weakness this weekend and told Jonas I'll take away all legos for a month if he can't learn to pick them up. While the family thinks that I am the "master picker upper" it is in fact NOT my job to pick up after everyone.

Jonas woke up this morning and immediately cleaned up all the legos and his room. I heard the soft slap of his feet running down the hall to share his excitement. And with an enormous grin, he asked if I could make cinnamon rolls. Warm cinnamon rolls with no icing. Now that, my friends, is my job.

  2. What a good boy! (and what a great mum for making cinnamon rolls!) I can't wait to see more of your new home, what I've seen so far I love! Are these photos in the park by your house?

    The courgette flowers on my blog are in fact zucchini blossoms, just a little lost in translation. As far as macaron, I have success with this recipe. I found that baking them on really low stopped them cracking but perhaps that was just my oven. The recipe is really adaptable, so you could quite easily make them a different flavour by using a different filling. One other thing I read was that if you used food colouring to use paste rather than liquid as the liquid ruins the consistency. Good luck!

    On a completely different note, I need to send you that print, could you DM me your new address and I'll get it in the post asap.
