I Heart This.....

because I do rustic REAL well
if I ever have a kitchen that it can be put in, it will be there before I can say
"I LOVE rustic butcher blocks"

Another Update- Emerald's Sleep Apnoea

For the ones that have asked of late-

It seems like we finally have a handle on Emerald's sleep apnoea & with many thanks to her fantastic surgeon the operations a success and she doesn't have to sleep on a CPAP machine. Thank goodness for that it would have been devastating at such an age.

Mind you she wasn't overly impressed with the ultra fashionably leg wear she had to wear her entire hospital stay!!

Of course waiting around hospitals is never easy

if you have to be in a hospital The Noosa Private Hospital was great.
Fantastic care & attention & the nursing staff were lovely & very attentive.

This was the lovely bush view from Emerald's hospital bed, such a lovely peaceful setting has just got to be an advantage with patients convalescing. There was always something new to see looking out the window. Plenty of birds flitting around along with lizards scurrying to & fro.
Must say very good for mothers sitting beside for MANY hours.

and so life continues....

Have a great weekend (flooding in our area again)

Mooloolaba Fish Market

On the New Years Day holiday we had on Monday we went over to The Mooloolaba Fish Market to get a last bit of holiday seafood. We LOVE this place for seafood, they have their own boats so it is fresh fresh fresh.
While over there picking up our seafood we got a serve of their calamari, they soak it in milk & garlic overnight & it really is the most tenderness, flavourful calamari I have ever had. Everything is really fresh, filleted in-house & the staff are SO helpful even when it is busy(& believe me it gets super busy at times)

So in-case your wondering if I've been paid or have received product for this good plug, I haven't (they don't even know I'm doing it) I simply like good service combined with good products something I think is sorely missing of late.

So if you live or are travelling/holidaying in the area try it, give it a go & let me know what you think?
This year I'm going to tell you a few more places I like to go.
Good service /product deserves a good word & is much nicer than complaining about the bad that seems to be so common now.

Where do you like to go/shop/eat??

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all.
I hope you all had a Wonderful & safe Christmas & New Year.

A big thank you to all my followers & to the people that take the time to read my posts & leave a comment for me. It makes my day!

Just before Christmas I was lucky to be able to go to my Dil's ultrasound with her & my son.


I may or may not have shed a tear.

After, we went shopping for baby clothes in the applicable colour.

NO! I'm not telling.

Guess what?? I'm even lucky enough to know the name. Everything has to be discussed & decided well ahead of time as Soldier Boy will not be here for the birth.

Nup! I'm not telling you that either.

BUT.... I do promise to keep you posted.

Best wishes for 2012
Caroline xoxo

PS- A big yeh for me. I actually took down all my Christmas decorations on the 1st Jan.
GULP! they have been known to stick around way into February ;0
