One of the best bits of advice I’ve been given about being a mother is to apply the oxygen mask principle – ie to take care of yourself so you are able to then take care of others. The last few days in Melbourne has been exactly that. Well I guess actually I was being looked after rather than looking after myself ;).

Lots of cake:
Lots of craft:
And super thrifty shopping:
Oh and a couple of poems!
I’ll be back with more details but you can see the full pix on my flickr photostream.
