We have been away for the last week, having a much needed holiday on the NSW south coast. We stayed in a gorgeous spot overlooking the beach, had BBQ’s for tea every night, ate breakfast on the balcony and drank lots of cups of tea while reading. The girls were sick the whole time we were away (still are) so they were happy to chill out drawing and reading most of the time too. And we were also lucky enough to see whales hanging out in the bay, playing and splashing – they were really very amazing. Hubby desperately needed a holiday so he spent lots of time on the bike (lucky him!). I find it hard to prioritize going away like that, luckily hubby believes that it is essential and will make it happen regularly. Even if it’s just clearing the weekend so we have a couple of days together as a family without the craziness of work, kinder runs, kids party’s etc. etc.
While we were away we went to a community market which consisted of a lot of second-hand books and gorgeous local fresh produce. I managed to pick up this little treasure. I am very excited about this. It is a (vintage) Magdalena tin. Magdalena’s are a typical Spanish cake that you eat, dunked in your coffee, for breakfast. We ate this every morning at our local coffee bar in Madrid. They are delish and decadent. So this afternoon the girls and I are baking!
