Uh-oh, over a month without posting; I fell off the horse, which is topical because all sorts of very talented horse-people have been tumbling from horses in Greenwich Park . However, since I am the most committed of wannabe-Olympians, here I am...back on the horse. This post has been several weeks in the crafting so is not ever so current but, hopefully, from now on it's business as usual!

Non-stop brilliance and fun recently, with 'Joseph' as the icing on the cake. Speaking of which, here's what I made for morning tea today....
Cinnamon Sticky Buns (from the front cover of June's Feast mag). They were da bomb!
This week is NAIDOC Week, a week to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. I was helping to (wo)man the 'health check' stall at TP's NAIDOC Fair and we needed some morning tea to fortify us. There was an obscene amount of butter in those cinnamon sticky buns so it was a case of "do as I say, not as I do" (as is so often the case in many of the health promotion/education activities I participate in... 'rethink drink' anyone??!!). Anyhoo, it was a great morning. Loads of people came to have their blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and waist measurements taken, and loads of people avoided us!!

Our groovy tent.
In related news, although I don't know if it qualifies as news any more, I am the new School Health Nurse/ Community Generalist for Tom Price and Paraburdoo. One of my favourite places to hang out is the Welcome Centre at F and E's school where the students who come in on the bus from the outlying communities can go before and after school.
I try and divide my time between the four schools I service but since F and E are at 'Central' I end up there a fair bit. Here I am being very official at the opening of the school's new early childhood buildings:
This poor Year 7 student was waiting at the school's entrance to welcome me while I snuck in around the back. One of the School Officers came to fetch me and take me back to the entrance so I could be officially shown to my seat!!
Look how important I am, I have my name on a seat!!


  1. The buns looked amazing, I'm so impressed! I don't suppose they lasted very long. M xxx

  2. Speaking of tasty things on the front of food magazines.....a few issues ago delicious had a plum tray bake on the cover- it is a winner! I didn't faff around with white choc custard, just used store bought custard- so sue me!! Give it a go- it will make you very popular (I meant even more popular....)!
