Have you ever had one of those moments where something in life absolutely blows you away for all the right reasons? Well, I had one of those moments while perusing the aisles at The Food Show a few weeks back. The prompt? Seeing my maiden name printed on a huge banner covering the back wall of one of the stands.

I pointed it out to Kevin and scurried in to take a closer look and find out what it was all about. While I was busy taking a photo of the banner on my phone, one of the ladies working at the stand came over and said to Kevin, ‘Do you know Kirsten McConchie?’ to which he replied, ‘Yeah, I’m married to her!’. He pulled me around as he said this and I popped out with ‘That’s me!’ – then the ladies brought us aside, filled  me in on what was going on and even asked me to do an impromptu book signing!

What an absolutely stunning weekend – it felt like Spring! We made the most of the beautiful weather and did a bit of exploring around the city – including getting to know our new neighbourhood a bit better. It was definitely a wonderful weekend.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend too. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

Phew, what a crazy weekend. It started off with a bit of mayhem, after finding out the reason one of our kittens has been running like a rabbit and limping from time to time is that he has dislocated kneecaps – not only does he need very expensive surgery to fix them, it needs to be done as soon a possible so he can grow healthy, strong legs. Luckily we had a lovely weekend planned and spent lots of time with friends and family – it really takes your mind off things!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

After weeks and weeks of busy weekends we finally got a chance to take some time out and relax this weekend – it was amazing! For me that meant spending a lot of time in the kitchen baking some rather special treats – not only the doughnuts I shared yesterday, but some decadent creations I can’t wait to share in coming weeks.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too and are kicking off the week nice and rested. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Can you believe it’s August already? I swear it’ll be Christmas before we know it – not that I’m complaining. We had a busy yet relaxing weekend perusing the stalls at The Food Show (I discovered something pretty exciting there that I can’t wait to share with you soon!), spending time with friends and hanging around the house with the kittens. A rather lovely weekend!

I hope you had a lovely weekend too – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

What a wonderfully busy weekend it’s been! After spending much of Saturday working away at home we headed to the lovely Lydia Bakes’ house warming – a fabulous Mexican themed party complete with churro and nacho bar. Sunday was spent catching up with friends and doing a little work around the house – I swear there’s always something to do!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Hasn’t it been absolutely freezing the past couple of days? It’s been such a struggle to get out of bed, let alone go outside! Luckily for me we had a busy weekend filled with indoor activities – baking, setting up for a party and catching up with family. A pretty great weekend!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend too. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…
