catching up

Its been a busy 2 weeks, only 2 days without a sick child at home * ... and tomorrow is break up day for a one week school holiday, I'm looking forward to catching up on some sleep.
(* 28/9 I remembered its actually its been 4 days without a sick child at home in the last 3 weeks!I love this time of year but not the sinuses and colds! )
Over the weekend we went to the Food Lovers Market and found this beautiful display of freshly made pasta - just look at those rich colours!

And I had to show you a picture of the green cheese!! Its sage cheese!

Another day we went out for lunch to Monte Casino, its so beautifully decorated in there and it was full of people - choc-a-block full! So after lunch we went to look at the bookshop, which looks new since the last time we were there, and it was so peaceful and quiet.
Upstairs they have a "Champagne Lounge" that's beautifully decorated and has a man playing beautiful soft music on a grand piano (you can see him in the corner)

And as you step outside the doors of the second floor of the bookshop you are suddenly on a balcony looking out over the "streets" below, I love the way the plants are growing over the roof area and all the comfortable places you can just sit and read.

We bought the children a "Diary of the Wimpy Kid" book set and our bookworm Emily has just finished all 4! (in 5 days) She has been laughing the whole way through :)

And finally look what arrived in the mail - lots and lots of beautiful stickers! I use them in the children's lunch boxes. Thanks Carrie!
