30 days of biking

30 days of biking is on again! What better way to celebrate spring than by riding your bike every day for the whole month of September?
The only rule for 30 Days of Biking is that you ride your bike every day for 30 days, then share your adventures and stories with others on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and on their blog. You don’t have to ride far or often. Once a day every day. To school, the pub, the shops, work, the neighbours, around the block.

We will be doing it as we do it pretty much anyway and this just gives us another excuse to talk about it more often!

PS:Thanks to Treadly and Me for the heads up!

More Good things

Friday is a day of good things.

Helen from each peach in Lygon St delivered some yummy biscuits with which to celebrate the Flipster’s upcoming birthday. Some of these will go to school today to share with his classmates, the rest will be scoffed tomorrow at his birthday lunch. I could have pretended that I would get around to making them myself but these have the Flipster’s seal of approval and have actually materialized on the day which are both big bonuses in a birthday biscuit!

Birthday crunch

The mailman graciously delivered Aunty Cookie’s ABC craft panel with which we are looking forward to doing something neat.


And Taash, a fellow prep-mum delivered (by email) some brilliant shots she took of the Flipster enjoying himself at the Preps-Threes Athletics Day yesterday.


Smelly stuff

For twenty-five years I’ve been planning to buy some jasmine, just as soon as I’d bought a house.

And now, in all its early-spring glory, here it is. Gracefully draping itself over the chook-shed! That reddish fluffball in the background is a chook bottom.

Just to add to the elegance of our chook shed, our quince is blossoming. I luvs me quince.
