Life as a working Mum

It's been a busy week. It always is when you're trying to work from home and look after a baby!

On Tuesday, we had an 'action-packed' day. We drove 'Daddy' to the airport at sunrise.

We had vegemite on toast for breakfast.

Then we made egg-free apple + almond muffins from Louise Fulton-Keats' fantastic cookbook, 'Thermomix Cooking for your Baby + Toddler'.  Baby M is allergic to eggs.

M had a nap and I did some work (paid and housework!) 

Then lunchtime and another nap (it's a baby's life) 

While M was napping, I met with a local Mackay artist, Harvey Stone. Such wonderful pencil and ink drawings of unusual subjects such as fungi and pandanus seeds. He has a variety of styles, all very graphic. He gave me a lovely watercolour of Lawn Hill Gorge (one of my favourite places from family camping holidays).  He'll be at the Wintermoon Festival in Cameron's Pocket at the end of April and at the next Rock Paper Scissors Market at Mackay Artspace in July.

I started a weaving in the afternoon. I want to try another design from the gorgeous blog, A Beautiful Mess.

We went for a walk and picked up some rubbish. I am trying to lead a more eco conscious life this year. Don't forget about Clean Up Australia Day on the 6th March. 

Dinner, bath and bed. 

Some more work and then it starts all over again tomorrow!
