Make your own Ginger Beer!

This recipe is easier than pie and great to make with the kids
You will need:
A bucket, 5 empty 1.5L bottles, a funnel (or not if you dare)
The juice of 3 lemons (or 4 if they are small)
6L water
4 cups of sugar
4tsp ginger
1tsp citric acid
Simply put all the ingredients into the bucket and stir well. Pour into the 5 bottles and leave for at least 7 days.
And wa-lah! Your own bottles of super easy and super fizzy gingerbeer to enjoy :)

I lurve....

Well, it sure has been a long time since my last post! So many things have happened since then, the biggest change being that I now have a little (big!) boy! He is such a smiley, happy, easy going little guy! Who has today just started sleeping in his "big boy's cot". He looks so little in it, but was certainly getting a bit big for the bassinette...
Here is a pic of Mr E after his first sleep
Speaking of changing beds, little K now has her very own Dora the Explorer big girls bed too, just like her big sister Miss H. They have become really great friends lately and have been doing a lot of playing and laughing together which is really neat to see.
Chris and I have really been enjoying life together lately too. It never ceases to amaze me how much you can love someone and how much that love can grow. Just when you think things can't get any better, they do! He has been such a huge support and help to me, especially lately with all the extra work and help needed with a newborn, and I am so grateful to have a guy like him! Just like any couple we can have our ups and downs, but I like to think that "rocking the boat" occasionally helps us to grow and change and become better people :)
I lurve... my family!
