Naomi’s 5 things

COOKING; School lunches! I know it sounds strange but this year I’ve come to actually enjoy making school lunches. During lockdown we had a lot of fun getting more creative with quick and easy school lunches and tried to hang on to this when school went back. Simple things like mini quiches in cupcake moulds, a salad and maybe a quick fruit galette. Doesn’t really take much effort but the kids just love it!

LISTENING to (and sending) audio letters from my friend interstate. I’m also thrilled that Dispatch to a Friend is back and also loving the Out of Office podcast.

WATCHING; I have finally, properly got into the Back in Time for Dinner series with Annabel Crabb and it’s just fantastic!

READING and loving The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley. Actually all her books are wonderful.

DOING - cuddling our brand new puppy Thistle. He’s bringing a lot of laughs and fun into the house and has been such a source of joy.
