The last couple of days have been bliss. I'm not sure why I have felt such a calm, but it has sure washed all over me and passed onto the wee ones. Admittedly there are still moments of hectic but all in all it has been a serene couple of days. The sun has been shining again (though everyone keeps warning me another cold snap will pass through soon) and I have spent most of the last couple of days playing cars or tiggy with DS on the front lawn. I haven't really managed to get many 'jobs' done, but I really don't care. It has been so nice to just 'be' with the bubs. I keep saying to myself I have this and this to do, but I know that they will always wait to be done, so really there is no hurry. I did manage to save enough citrus peels to start brewing my citrus cleaner. I saved all my peels after I ate or used for cooking and popped them into a glass jar and kept in the fridge. I added vinegar and kept topping both up. I have now left it in the cupboard where it will stay for another couple of weeks to really let the goodness of the citrus peels and vinegar combine and then I will use that as an all purpose spray cleaner - with no nasties! I will continue to save my citrus peels now to keep this in stock.

This morning I had delicious free range eggs on homemade toast with lots of butter. The eggs come from a lady that DH works with. I love to open the carton and look at the different colours and sizes of the eggs we get from her, there must be at least 7 different mumma's in this carton. We are in the middle of tossing up whether to get our own chooks again or not. They really make a lot of mess and on our 550sqm block it kinda gets everywhere. I'm not sure if I like the idea of them cooped up, but I love my eggs and all the other bonus's like manure, scraps and bug catchers. We'll have to make up our minds very soon, because if we do I want to get little chicks and raise them so they can be pets for the bubs too.
