This is on my mind...

I'm currently participating in this challenge. This is how it works:

This is on my mind is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives with these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about. It could be something already done but still on your mind, something you're about to do and you're working out how to do it, or a place at home where you've spent a lot of time during the past week. It could be anything.

To take part in this, all you have to do is post your photo and write a short caption explaining it. When your photo is published, come back here and add a comment, with a link to your blog photo. We will all be able to follow the breadcrumbs in the woods that lead to each new photo. Who know where these trails will lead us. (Refer Down to Earth)


This is Bianca. She is my very brave 7 year old. To read more about Bianca and why she's my superhero, click here. But anyway, this week this is on my mind. On Wednesday Bianca's school closed for the year. It was her very last day in Year 2. So on this day to celebrate the last day of school, the teacher decided to have a games day (non-electronic games) and asked that the kids bring a shared morning tea. So on Tuesday evening Bianca asked if she could please bake a cake. She did it all by herself - breaking the eggs, measuring, mixing and the only parts that I helped with was to read the recipe to her (because it is written in Afrikaans and she doesn't understand Afrikaans) and putting it into the oven. Then on Wednesday morning we decorated it. Green because it is Christmassy and also because it is her teacher's favourite colour and then in mini M&Ms Bianca wrote "Rm 5" which was the room she was in. Then when she went off to bed on Tuesday night she said "I love baking with you Mummy". It was a very special moment for me :-)
