    I would love to grow some of our own veg. Last time we grew courgettes we left them in the ground too long and they grew into marrows!

    it’s great to finally not have to hide your bump and let people know the reason why you are knackered/sick/emotional isn’t it! x

  17. July 6, 2014 / 22:15

    Great list! Agreed its such a relief when you no longer have to hide the bump anymore and you can finally stop pretending you are feeling dandy when youve spent the morning with your head in the toilet with morning sickness lol!

    Ooh lovely list and glad to see you don’t have to hide the beautiful baby bump any more, and all that talk of pancakes is making me hungry x

    A lovely list – and a sight that you should not worry about compared to the rapid erosion of old, flat terrain in much of Australia. When I have flown (it is ludicrous, but the road lobby rules in Australia and Europeans have every right top sanction Australia until its last cent forever is spent on roads) between Melbourne and Sydney one can see how much erosion farming has created from window seats.

    Yet, the free market encourages this because land in Australia is so cheap and there are no iconic large animals to allow for competition on the most geologically representative extant landmass – the very continent that can teach people most about how ecosystems have evolved over the vast majority of geological time.

    So many lovely things this week – wow your courgettes are further along than ours – not sure when ours will be ready for picking. We also love love love pancakes in the morning – don’t think they would ever get old :)
