Arancini

Dear Mum,

It was great Skyping today, sorry if I wasn’t making a lot of sense, I did a blood test after I shut the call down and was a bit on the low side. Oops!

This morning, as well as doing a couple of loads of washing and hanging out of clothes, I found a recipe and made some of the leftover risotto into arancini balls, however I only made a couple as I wanted to check them out before I went ahead and used the rest of it. Because we didn’t have mozzarella I used a small piece of cheddar and a bit of sun dried tomato. They turned out okay but the cheese didn’t melt very well, so I took note and planned to make the rest later in the day.

Deanne and I ate them for lunch, Josh had a cheese sandwich. We left Deanne at home to rest her back and I took Joshy to Riverton, next to the Canning River, to have a scoot and a Calippo ice cream. Sadly the café, which served lovely cakes, although we only had a Diet Coke (me) and an ice cream (Josh), was still in the process of being built, so the playground wasn’t finished. However Joshua coped well with this and so we went for a massive scooter ride along the river.

When we got home I made tea, home made chips plus burgers in buns, then raspberry jelly with vanilla ice cream.

I put Josh to bed then had another go at the risotto, making another eight balls, then sharing one with Deanne to check it turned out okay.

Tomorrow I’m helping out at kindy, so another tiring day I suspect.

A mildly amusing aside: Snuggles just climbed on to the bed and sat between my feet as I was typing this and Deanne said, “ah, what’s it like to be a bore?” Then quickly realised what she’d actually said and changed the last word to “adored”! At least I think it wasn’t on purpose!

Love

Piney Lakes

Dear Mum,
Busy day today! We got up, got ready then went out to the Triassic Fun Park. Joshua climbed and slid and ran and jumped for about an hour and a half. Unusually, he was relatively quiet in the car on the way home.
He perked up again after lunch. Josh had a cheese and Vegemite sandwich and I had cheese toasties.
We set out again after eating and went to Piney Lakes nature reserve, which is where the three of us were at the weekend. We took Josh’s scooter and he scooted all the way around the park, which is pretty big, plus he stopped to have an investigate around the lake and the little bridges, as per the picture.
My guess would be, we did a good couple of miles, if not more. Then when we got back to the start he wanted to have another quick go on the playground (he’d been on it when we arrived).
We got home and I put him to bed. He didn’t want to go but slept for an hour and a half. He woke up when Deanne got home from work. She made us burgers and buns with chips and peas. We ate in the sitting room while he watched Dinosaur Train.
We’re probably going to the Zoo tomorrow, depending on the weather. It’ll be the first time that Deanne has actually been at work while we’ve been there.
Love
Dan
