Keeping busy....



So looks like I've had an unintentional break from blogging lately. I've been keeping busy with school holidays, doing a spring clean-up in my garden, quite a bit of sewing, and oh yeah I've just celebrated a birthday :-) My girls made me feel loved and special with presents, artwork, and thoughtful words written in my birthday cards. My parents took me out shopping and to lunch for the day and 2 girlfriends organised a casual dinner of home made burgers and wine. I whipped up the above Strawberry chocolate tart for dessert and it was the perfect decadent ending to a perfect birthday. You can find the recipe here. Be warned that the only thing healthy about it is the 2 punnets of strawberries underneath the white and dark drizzled chocolate layer. Although dark chocolate has some health benefits too right??

Okay I shall be back very soon with a post or 3 to share what I have been sewing.
