Me & Mine May

May has been full on but not necessarily all good this month. Work has kicked up a notch with the return of my 5 day week for the next few months, it's surprising how having the extra day home can make things easier and I will definitely appreciate it when I'm back to 4 days.
Luke got hit by a dose of hand foot and mouth, the poor thing. He had a nasty rash on his legs and hands and on his tongue, the drooling was ferocious and he was so off form. Thankfully he's over the worst now though, I hate seeing him so ill.
I pulled a muscle in my neck...again. It's a bit of a regular occurence for me now and I really need to go and do something further about it but I kind of forget about it until the next time it goes on me. This time it was very painful, resulted in a trip to the emergency doctor and some painkillers.
On a brighter note though we have put some great effort into the garden this month, new fence, flower bed with plants, the plant pots out the front have been refilled with some colourful begonias. I like looking out the back door now and seeing all our efforts and this is coming from someone who hates gardening!
I've had a bit of a baking frenzy this month too, I've made a few different kinds of cupcakes as well as a lemon curd loaf and marble cake. I'll be sharing some recipes here over the next few weeks.

Our pictures this month were taken after an impromtu trip to McDonalds on a day when naptime wouldn't happen because Luke was being stubborn even though he was tired, I was tired, the weather was sunny one minute and raining the next so we couldn't even make a plan to go out and about so we thought ah feck it the let's head to Maccy D's for a treat (oh, the shame, bad parents!! hehe)
