It's how you choose to look at things that count.

Published by under Uncategorized

While cooking up a storm, I came across this potato, doesn’t it look like a heart? I showed my children, and Lachlan my 11 year old son promptly said that it looked like a gluteus maximus! I guess it’s how you choose to look at things eh?

Speaking of cooking, here is a yummy cake recipe for you.

Luscious Belgian Lemon Teacake.

1 cup SR flour

1/2 cup castor sugar

60g butter

1 egg slightly beaten

oven on 180c, grease round cake tin (17cm)

Sift flour, add sugar, mix well. Rub in butter until it looks like breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre and stir in the egg. Mix to a soft dough. Press 2/3 of dough into the tim. Pour filling over the top (filling…add 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, 60g butter and 1 egg slightly beaten to a saucepan, heat gently, stirring constantly until mixture boils and thickens, use while hot).

crumble small remaining pieces of dough over filling. Bake for 30 min, cool in tin.

Freezes well:D

Sunday, The Lord's day.

Today we all went to Church, but not altogether! Jared went with Lachlan and Camden to his preaching post and I went with the girls to our local church. We have only been going for 6 months, so I really want to make an effort to fit in, and have some fellowship. We did something different, we watched a video of John Anderson who spoke at the Belgrave Men’s convention. He is obviously a godly man, who trusts in Christ alone for his salvation. It reminded us all to keep our politicians in our prayers.

The boys across the road came over around lunch time to sell their chocolates to raise money for their school. They are such sweet boys, how could I resist (mind you, if they were selling vegetables they would not have been so popular!).

I didn’t tell you that yesterday we went to the local plant nursery. Camden who is 6 was running around near the sand piles like a wild banchee when I called him. What did I find? He had only one shoe on, he had decided to only bother bringing one! Where did I get him from? Ok, it was kinda funny, he never seems to amaze me with what goes on in his mind. Thankfully he is growing up and getting a little calmer. Last week Lachlan asked him what 24 plus 24 was, and he promptly answered 48! I said “how do you know that?” he said “20 plus 20 is 40 and 4 plus 4 is 8, so it’s 48” He forgets his shoe, but he can add up

Now what do I do?

Published by under Uncategorized

Ok, my husband Jared has just set this blog up for me, so now what do I do?  I could tell you something about myself, and hope that somewhere in blog land someone is bored enough to have a Mrs Jessup (a sticky beak woman in the the Australian’s tv show The Sullivans), looksie. 

I have a great husband who is my earthly rock (I’m a christian so Christ is my rock and my refuge overall), he is an ordained Presbyterian Minister in Victoria, Australia. We have just moved from Moe after 10 years, and now he is a lecturer at the Pressie college. I have 5 beautiful children who keep me thanking God, and who also happen to be the greatest character moulders of all time (well, at least on me!). We have choosen to homeschool, and this has been a huge blessing, and an awesome responsibility ( especially for someone like myself who never paid attention at school, as I found it boring apart from the long chats that I had with friends in class. Just for interest I did pass year 12 without any effort, although a couple of my talking buddings did not have the same outcome (am I bad?). For my first year out of school I worked as a dental nurse, which I enjoyed (although I could never set plaster moulds of teeth without getting airbubbles in them!) I decided that nursing was for me, so I trained at Caulfield hospital as a S.E.N. I loved that Job, it opened my eyes, and calmed my party spirit, seeing someone die does that to you. Now days I fill my days with loving my family, doing bits and pieces and hopefully making a differance….to someone.

 That’s me, so far…now I will wait and see if anyone wants to have a cassie cuddle (did I just type that?)
