Travel diary: Our Hamilton Island getaway

Last week we jetted off to Hamilton Island for three days as a family. I’d been to Hamilton Island before, but never past the airport of the jetty right near the airport, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. About a decade ago, when Hubby and I went to Daydream Island, we were told that…

RUNAWAY

Are you suffering from weekenditis?

Brought to you by TFE Hotels. When’s the last time you had a really, really, REALLY good weekend? You know the ones where you’ve actually done a great mix of good things; a bit of feet-up-and-relaxing, a touch of consuming good food {and perhaps a little bit of wine}, and a dash of good times…

Thermomix Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

We had friends over for breakfast the other day and I thought while I was doing my ‘a Thermomix recipe a day‘ it was fitting to make them eggs benedict for breakfast. Plus, they were running the Gold Coast marathon the next day so I knew an indulgent breakfast would be quickly burned off. As…

TEL-walking

A weekend of firsts

I’ve always known that when Lacey started losing her teeth that it was going to be a downhill slide into big-girlhood, and that it would be an emotional roller-coaster for me, her mama. A week ago she told me that her tooth was ‘wibbly’ and she’s told the same a few times before {only to…

In defence of the phone-haters club

Last night I shared an article on Facebook that I read and thought was quite funny, and true. I went to bed straight after and didn’t think much of it. At 2am Luella woke for a few hours, so I checked my phone and the share had exploded. Lots of passionate opinions and views were…

Which flavour are you?

Brought to you by Cadbury. Let’s have a little fun, shall we? Remember those quizzes that we used to do in magazines when we were teens and totally hip and happening {read: also totally angst-y and annoying}? I loved those quizzes so I’m bringing a bit of that fun here today. Let’s figure out what…

Thank you

I’ve been meaning to do this for days now, and am finally stealing a moment to write it. What a wild ride these past handful of days have been. Late last month I launched my App, Little Moments by Fat Mum Slim. Looking back I didn’t have any expectations on how well it would be…

In the Thermomix: Quirky Cooking’s

I love a good chicken soup, and trust me, there can be some bad ones. My favourite chicken soup is this one which I adapted for the Slow Cooker. Well, that was until I met this one. I put off cooking this chicken soup for a while, because it seemed too complicated with it’s almonds…

Thermomix playdough: I think you’re

I’ve been wanting to make playdough in the Thermomix for a while now. I usually make a no-cook playdough that is really simple, but I’m always up for something new. This one was amazing. I think maybe because the recipe says to blitz the salt, and then dissolve it… it makes for a really smooth…

How to make friends*

*when you’re 34, have moved to a new town and know nobody Two years ago last month we moved all the way up north from Sydney. Looking back it was such a brave, leap of faith. I don’t usually do big chance-y things like that. I was talking to Hubby about it the other day…

Falling in love with my Thermomix &

Do you know anyone that has a Thermomix? Those people are passionate, lovers of the machine. I say that in the kindest way possible. I love that they love it and use it. I have tried, and I’ll admit I’m getting better… but I actually find it therapeutic to chop and stir things sometimes. I…
