All in the packaging


Friday nights is easy dinner night for the girls. I guess it's a little bit of guilt on my part, I start work so early on Friday's that I don't see them before I leave, Geoff either for that matter. Friday's I'm home early though, so they get to choose what they fancy for dinner. Normally it's homemade fish and chips, or homemade nuggets and chips. For them though, the treat is in the presentation and the fact they get to eat it in the lounge room, piccyniccy style, watching a movie. We sit together and indulge.

I must buy some new packages, little Chinese takeaway containers, boxes, different things, mix it up. Normally a paper cone with greaseproof paper in is very popular, today, lunchboxes. Got to get back to Barbie Island Princess.....

Have your heard of Japanese bento boxes? I'm thinking of getting Tyler and Chloe one of these to make their meals a little more exciting and special: http://www.laptoplunches.com/

First day of kinder was actually great. I am thrilled about the teacher and feel that Tyler is in the best of hands. I am ecstactic. I actually cried during the orientation/meet-and-greet session before school started when all the children were gathered around the teacher, such a sweet moment to see him as a big boy. Thanks for asking! I'm doing okay.

I love this special family ritual. The packaging adds to the charm. The girls will remember these special times forever.
