Just a quick update from the Forbes household. Due to such a wet and windy weekend we stayed indoors for most of it! Given I had a clean scrap room again I scrapped!!! Girls did some cooking and made yummy sausage rolls for tea on Saturday along with some Banana puffs (made the recipe up as we went!)
Recently I have been investigating the additives in our food - before it always seemed too hard to work out which of those numbers were bad and then looking at each of the individual grocery items would take me forever and a day. BUT someone has done it for me!!! Odette is one of the mums in Chionia's kindy year and due to her sons allergies to additives etc she has created a fantastic business to help people like me!! I attended one of her lectures at the school which is a quick breakdown of the additives and which foods are nasty etc! An eye opener to say the least. A few weeks later I did the supermarket tour which involved going through Coles after hours with her and a small group of others where we were actually shown which products are good and which ones are not so good. Vegemite is a nasty - yeast extract is basically just about pure MSG so we are now a Marmite household (lol for those of you who know me I am a vegemite girl from way back so not happy Jan!!) Anyway we have cut out a lot of unnecessary additives in our food and along with the $10.00 book which lists it all for me we are slowly getting rid of those nasties - it is surprising that a lot of the well branded foods such as Kraft are some of the worst on the market - because of the mass production of the food, extra's are added into it. So if it means buying the Nestle vanilla ice-cream instead of Peters then we will and we have noticed a huge difference in the girl's behaviour as well. If anyone is interested in the booklet just leave me a massage and I can give you Odette's contact details.
Alice gets her needles today so guess who is having a cuddle tomorrow all by myself!!!!! I have to go by myself because when I take the girls on Sunday I don't think I will have much of a chance!!
Twiddleybitz is going great guns - lots of exciting things happening atm - Aussie Scrap Source have picked them up and it is going really really well YAY!!! Lots of new releases coming up as well as some interesting idea's floating around - My first lot of Twiddleybitz classes start next month so have been busy working on those projects - check out the DT blog www.twiddleybitzdt.blogspot.com for Sonja's challenge
Here is a few things I created over the weekend! Loving the fern leaves atm!!
Also in my clean up I pulled out the puzzles pieces I got the girls to do at last years retreat in Melbourne - I had popped them away because I am still waiting on 2 to be sent back to me but figured I could just glue them on if they arrive!! Love this - I now have it above my scrap table as a reminder of a fantastic weekend!
lol I also found my camera battery charger in the clean up!!!
