Where did January go?

With some monster orders rolling in at the end of the year, working from home while the kids had school holidays was doable, but busy. But when Sander had a day off and took all the kids to Mulligans Hut. Bliss...

Mungo Brush Campground. Part of the Myall Lakes National Park.
Where you chuck the kids into the lake at the end of the day, followed by the laundry and dirty dishes. We tend to camp pretty basis, without electricity and wifi.
A campground without tap water however, was a new experience for us. We got used to it pretty quickly, but back at home being able use the tap for a drink or to flush the toilet became a whole new luxury...
The vast sand dunes of Dark Point

Bringing out some new items, just in time for Australia Day.
Using native spices brings cooking to a whole new level. Like these Aussie Sprinkles, they shine with the kick of wattle seeds and the slow releasing aroma of cinnamon myrtle.
Chester got himself a hoof abscess. Not able to walk on it, he was one sorry sod for a couple of days.
It’s been weeks, but still slowly healing. I can’t wait until we can go riding again...
Thankful for good friends with horses. Horse riding to and cooling off in the river.
Keeping work fun, bringing out some limited editions. Like this Sweet Chilli Sauce that makes use of the massive glut of chillies currently in my garden.
Another Aussie Pride: swagman macadamias. With salt bush and many other native herbs.
The school holidays tend to be the time for massive growth spurts. They all went up at least 1 clothing and shoes size in a matter of weeks!
On the Tea Garden-Nelson Bay Ferry
Kayaking with dolphins
I had been asked to do little gifts for all those attending the Clarence Valley Australia Day Awards.
My biggest job so far. But so happy how it all turned out. Doesn’t it look cute?!?!

Scored ourselves another 10kg blueberries for the freezer!
Another day of packaging, while the kids played nicely.
Ao they all got homemade ice cream.
 Our first dragon fruits have taken off!
 Cooling off at McPhersons Crossing.

Enjoying the evening when it finely starts to cool off.
Perfect for dinners outside with friends.
Celebrating good friends
