Chocolate Chip Oat Slice Recipe

I made this chocolate chip oat slice recipe up just using ingredients from the cupboard this week because it’s a broke week! This slice is a bit muesli bar, a bit choc chip cookie, a bit ANZAC slice. The kids have loved it so far, so I’ll definitely make it again. It’s a great way to use up your oats and it just uses basics from your pantry. Nothing fancy needed. It will last in an airtight container in your pantry for at least a week (if the kids don’t eat it all first!) and is perfect for lunch boxes and after school snacks. It’s filling and full of oats, with not too much sugar, and school safe with not nuts. You can choose to use dark, milk or even white chocolate chips, depending of your preference. If you enjoy a salted flavour you can crack some extra salt over the top (that’s what I’ve done here because I love it!)

Tully turns 10! A Squishmallow Foam party

Foam partyTully’s catch phrase is, “look at its cute little face!” She’s obsessed with Squishmallows, kawaii, and any toy with big eyes. Because she was turning 10 I wanted to do a big party at home in April, but, thanks to covid, an overseas trip to see her family in Scotland and then a surprise bout of chicken pox, it was June before we could have the party!

Laundry makeover for under $3000

I’ve hated the laundry in my house ever since we build it. For 11 years now it’s been a washing machine and a metal basin, with a dryer on the wall.

I didn’t have a lot of money so we decided to attempt a laundry makeover for under $3000. Here’s how we did it…
