Anyway, one of my wee boys great passions in life is cooking - his favourite TV show is the Australian version of Junior Master chef. So he was determined to make something special for the jubilee - ALL BY HIMSELF he informed us. Below is his creation - a jubilee cake! He really did make it all by himself, although I did help read out some of the directions. He used blueberries and raspberries to decorate the vanilla butter cream icing, but alas they had to be frozen ones as they are not in season here now...the winter is upon us!

Just to be a little more frugal, my son and I also love to visit our local botanical gardens (ah the joy of breathing in all that oxygen and freshness!). This dear little waterfall above is one of favourite views in the gardens. We love to sit nearby, dressed up in our warm woollies, sipping hot chocolate from a thermos and dreaming of summer. My Mother always tells me that 'you shouldn't wish your life away' - that we should all savour 'the moment' and I think (wise woman that she is) this is sage advice. So I shall do my best to embrace the magic of this chilly time of year.
I am so behind on all my blog reading, but I cant wait to have a peek and see what everyone got up to over the Jubilee weekend - such fun! Becks xxx
