Bathroom reno on a budget {part 1}

I'm not sure that too much book work has been done this last week to ten days but I do know that the children have learned about plaster, studs, frames, plumbing and what is involved in renovating a bathroom!
Zeke and Hannah really loved destroying the walls in preparation that's for sure!!

Tea Party Thursday with Panda Bear cupcakes



We have just been looking at some Chinese history in the last few weeks and so to finish it off we decided to have some yummy Panda bear cupcakes for our Tea Party Thursday!!
Sophia LOVED doing these, though I did hear her say a few times..... "Ohhhh I sooo don't want to do anymore"..... closely followed by "this is sooo fun Mummy!!"
I found THIS picture and THIS one so we used them as a guide for our own little Panda bears.
  Here are Sophia's little Panda's!!
 I made these coconut ones, Hannah had to eat this one 
as she said it was the cutest!!
Everyone enjoyed them over some fun Panda poems and a nice cuppa-tea!

Wonderful World Wednesday - Caterpillars

While out with my daughter Hannah at Brady's Lookout, just down the Tamar River we found this funny little caterpillar! He was certainly very curious but also very clever!!

When I moved the rock he was on to get a closer look he totally FROZE! He did nothing, not one single movement AT ALL!! Hannah announced
"He's playing dead Mummy, look he's playing dead!" Sure enough he was as it took over 1minute for him to get started in moving again. We tried it once more and he did the exact same thing again! Sooo funny and sooo completely wonderful how this little guy deals with the world around him!

I've looked around the net and think that perhaps he is a Lymantrid Caterpillar which is actually the caterpillar for a moth! Interesting, what do you think??
