Make It Monday #173 with Time For Tea Designs

Hi there, welcome back.

Posting two weeks in a row, lets hope that is a sign of things to come in 2014 for me :o)

I felt sorry for my poor Hubby today, back at work after a lovely Christmas / New Year break. Although, I'm thinking he is going to enjoy the rest as he managed to build a fence, take down a palm tree, erect a shade sale over our pool and clear the vegie patch on his days off. Not bad going!

I did help of course but mainly with supplying the food and drinks to keep his energy levels up and by entertaining our three boys so they didn't kill each other out of boredom while these house renovation projects were completed.

I did have lots of fun though over the last few days playing with an awesome gift my wondeful Mum gave me

A Thermomix!!

I have been busy making dinners, deserts, juices, smoothies, yoghurt and icecream, loving it!!

If anyone out there has any good links to thermomix recipes etc I love to see them :o)

But today being Monday that means I am here to share with you my card for this week's 
MAKE IT MONDAY linky party.

Chrissy said...

Good on Hubby working so hard and accomplishing so much.My G/sons were in a murderous mood some of the holidays until I dropped them at 'Skatezone'..brilliant baby

Oh boy oh boy oh boy....I am completely intrigued by this Thermomix you speak of. I don't think I've heard of it, but now I really want to know all about it. Sounds like a blast you're having. Our son bought us a Keurig Coffee maker and it's been such a blast, but it doesn't cook food. I'm going to go investigate this now.
Thank you so much for the New Year visit really was so great to hear from you. Sounds like the house is coming along well too. I wish you all the very best for 2014 and your entire family too. Tell Mom I said hi...LOL.
Big big hugs to you,
PS...your copic skills are crazy brilliant!!
