A piece of cake

It's the last day of the Easter school holidays here in Sydney. We've had a fun, busy couple of weeks, lots of eating out, playgrounds, parks, playdates, friends' birthday parties, the beach, movies, swimming... and my big boy turned nine! We had a little family celebration at the Hard Rock Cafe and he'll be having a party with his mates at the weekend. Hard to believe how quickly the last 9 years has gone!!!


Today I think my boys and I just needed a day to wind down before school starts up tomorrow and we're back to our rushed morning routine. We stayed in our PJs until 11am, made popcorn and watched a movie, played a lot and made a yummy lemon cake using lemons from the tree in our garden. And it's only 2:30pm! Wonder what else we can pack into the five hours left until bedtime!

Those of us in the other hemisphere are jealous of the beach trips! Spring flirted with us for a week but now it's back to chilly, grey, wet days in England. Hope going back to school wasn't too painful.

I totally agree with Helena, Jealous of beach trips and lemon trees where actual lemons grow!

To be honest I'd love a chilly grey Irish day right now. :)

When we were in Ireland in December 2012 we went to the beach FIVE times!!! All bundled up in our winter coats, hats and scarves , it was lovely :-)

Me too, I double the amount of lemon juice and rind in the recipe to make it even more lemony :)
