    What a perfect accompaniment to the Tour de France!

    Hey! I hadn’t made that connection yet! Guess I’ll have to make some French macarons to complement the whole affair now too!

    • Or you could be easier on yourself and organise a picnic with a baguette and fromage…

        Yes, that does sound more realistic. Ideally it would be brie, but I’m not supposed to be eating that right now.

  • what a great idea – you are a fantastic mum (and artist of course) … i’ll be looking forward to the round-up and potentially stealing your idea for the distant future – unfortunately macy doesn’t let me have a minute alone yet but we are getting there …

    Bronya, I wish that being a fantastic mum was as simply as coming up with creative activities, but it’s not. I’m still extremely impatient with the kids, and am working very hard at fighting this. I’m really enjoying ‘the better mom’ blog which you shared on Facebook this week. I’m busy putting into practice some of the things I have read there!

    To add on to your imaginations of European pastries and farmer’s markets: beautiful european fabric. If you come across any good fabric places in your artists retreat in Perth, let me know ok? I’m still feeling very disappointed after my fabric shopping failure last Wednesday.
    Hope you all have a great time being ‘arty’ together!! The kids will treasure those memories when they are older!

      Are you looking for dressmaking fabric, Kristy? Have you looked online at all (don’t like your chances of finding much here in Perth)?

        Yes, dressmaking. I have looked online, but there isn’t much available in Aus. Plenty of patchwork and quilting fabric stores- maybe I’m going to have to steer my sewing in a different direction. I hear it doesn’t take long to become addicted!

  • Gorgeous idea Ruth! If only we could just drop everything and fly to France! I was talking to the kids this arvo about what we should do in the holidays. Their idea? Multi-cultural cooking. Hmmmm… might have to come up with something a little cheaper! Maybe Multi-cultural art??

      Sounds like your kids know what’s good for them, Tash! And if you managed it right, you wouldn’t have to cook dinner yourself all holidays.
