Happy Monday!

What a wonderful weekend – we picked Hunter up from the vet on Friday, so spent most of the weekend snuggled up at home nursing him and giving him lots of cuddles. Add in a bit of baking, DIY-ing around the house and catching up with friends, it was a lovely couple of days.

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

We spent a lot of time at home with the kittens this weekend as our poor kitten, Hunter, isn’t too well. He’s been diagnosed with severe orthopaedic issues in his knees and hips, and is booked in for the first of several surgeries on Wednesday which will help him walk without pain. Click here to find out more about what’s going on with our poor furbaby.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and lovely Father’s Day. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Well, despite it now officially being Spring the weather was certainly a little more wintery this weekend, huh? Luckily we didn’t have anything too pressing to do, so were able to spend most of it snuggled up at home with the fire blaring (and kittens to snuggle!) It was wonderful to have a chance to really recharge.

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.

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!

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…
