posieshoots After solid rainfall this Winter, the 'Infinity Dam' perched on the edge of our 'Hundred Acre Wood', is looking very healthy. I love this part of the farm, with the views down into the valley. Part of the fun of owning a farm is naming the different paddocks & dams. #countrylife #valley #vista #bungendore #dam #sheepfarm #winter 1mon
  •   the_warehouse_at_woodside Gorgeous dam! How lucky you are to have solid winter rain - we've had very little and the dams are no where near full - very worrying with summer not too far away. 1mon
  •   mysweetprints Stunning!!! Looks like a scene from an Australian Impressionist painting 1mon
  •   posieshoots @mysweetprints I actually thought the same. So much beauty in this country of ours. We are not far from Shoalhaven country, such a favourite area of inspiration for our great artists. @the_warehouse_at_woodside we appreciate the rainfall. Canberra gets half the rainfall of Sydney, yet, somehow, our 'farm in the clouds' perched higher up on The Great Dividing Range, just 50km from the CBD, never runs out of water. We watch this carefully as cattle are in our future. 1mon

  •   awhitestyle Your cons make me smile... 1mon
  •   fifi10past7 You and I have great taste... I love river cottage :) 1mon
  •   emelancon Love the Converse with flowers. 1mon
  •   shequiltsalot So I'm guessing you already know.... Those shoes!!!! 🏻 1mon
  •   posieshoots @emelancon they're by Marimekko, totally divine Finnish design. I have another Marimekko pair which look like rain drops. @fifi10past7 I'll have to watch the Australian series. Everyone raves about it. @megluvx4 I'm such a fan of the English version & hope to emulate this lifestyle soon. I only have one passionate cook here, sigh. I think things will change when we are growing all the meat, dairy & vegetables ourselves. @awhitestyle can you ever go wrong with Marimekko & Converse?? I love these boots, they're so fun & not a hassle to lace up either. 1mon
  •   posieshoots @shequiltsalot I heard Marimekko did a range & found these online at Converse in Australia. Really inexpensive (for the glory of what they are) so bought a couple of pairs, the other are Marimekko raindrops. @nedlolasmum crazy cool, aren't they?? @creativelyyoursfi practical & comfortable too. @petaruddphoto a fun shoe always makes me happy. 1mon
  •   shequiltsalot They are just awesome! 1mon
  •   taniamccartney Bought this for Ella for her birthday - it's divine! We both love Paul 3w

posieshoots A weeknight school holiday treat with the family . . . I had 'the beef' at Mr Shabu Shabu, Australian National University. What a novelty to have my own camping stove & cook my own beef, mushrooms & vermicelli. Fascinating to watch each child order something completely different to each other . . . somehow our son ordered three courses!! Delicious & great value. #Japanese #mrshabushabu #beefshabushabu #dinneroutandistillhadtocook 2mon

Delicious & 7 of us are for under $100. @theoldfathen our eldest is a little expert on Japanese food, she's doing Japanese for year 12 too. @nedlolasmum so fun & incredibly delicious. @wildtribe he was so pleased with himself. He was served first & was still eating as they started clearing the table. @13acres like a little trip to Japan. We certainly covered the menu. 1mon

posieshoots What a privilege to watch Australia vs Kenya last night & Kenya vs Peru this afternoon, in the Women's Volleyball Grand Prix finals at the AIS. "Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi" just doesn't cut it culturally in comparison to the drums, cow bells, chants & exotic calls of the Kenyans & Peruvians. Either way, I'm deaf!! Congratulations Kenya on winning the gold medal!! #Kenya #Peru #Australia #volleyball #fivb #grandprix #ais #smartchildworenoisecancellingheadphones 2mon

posieshoots Frozen hearts in my family right now, as our beautiful mother moved into a nursing home yesterday. My darling father is absolutely crushed, he has been incredible managing Mum's battle with Alzheimer's for almost a decade, at home. I can't imagine how Dad will feel when he wakes up this morning, still sharp as a tack & madly in love with Mum. They met, this week, sixty years ago. So lucky they have four children & fourteen grandchildren who will visit & call, practically every hour!! #family 2mon
  •   posieshoots @printscharmingoriginalfabrics a big beautiful loving family is the only way to be, we are so lucky to have experienced our gorgeous Mum. @marleyandlockyer absolutely Ness, Christmas Eve is their 60th wedding anniversary, Dad still plans to throw a party!! I've been a bit quiet on Instagram lately, life, sending huge love & admiration to you & your family!! @awhitestyle thank you Janelle. @pugglelogic indeed, lots of love is needed. @linda_uzu thanks Linda. @hannah.mccawley absolutely, it's 60 years just extraordinary!! Focussing on the positives & amazing legacy our parents have given us. 2mon
  •   little_tienda Oh my dear friend. What an amazing family you all are plus such a blessing not only to each other but to all of us! Much love to you all xxx 2mon

  •   threadsofhappiness Now I need a croissant for breakfast! 2mon
  •   posieshoots @la_sable_patisserie_ thank you, just amended the details. 2mon
  •   thisbloominglife Mitchell? As in down the road Mitchell? Where? 2mon
  •   whirlygirlpix We love croissants in our house. Sometimes me and my 2nd boy make up a set that are amazing ( as said by a real Frenchman). Let me know if you have any bakers interested. 2mon
  •   canberrabec Ooh this is a great Sunday morning shot! 2mon
  •   posieshoots @canberrabec this place is gorgeous. @whirlygirlpix oh yes, when we have our homestead, third daughter will be rolling out the croissants. I'll have you teaching us via Skype!! @thisbloominglife ya, in Lysaght Street next to Savvy's (school uniform shop!!) Our very own piece of Paris right in the middle of an industrial area.

posieshoots Lovely friends of ours just has twins. Welcome to the club, I've been a member since 2001. Now, baby twins evoke a surprising list of personal questions & unsolicited responses from the general public!! I remember the experience so well, I felt like a biology lecturer. No matter how fast you're pushing that pram through a park, strangers will block your path & start up with "twins??" then tell you that their mother's neighbour's sister's cousin's ironing lady had twins. Or a horror story!! In the grocery line, you'll be asked the following trifecta "IVF?? Cesarean?? Bottle fed??" I was a 'no' to all three, which instigated the "did you plan twins??" or "are twins in your family tree??" . . . my toddler heard the 'delivery' question so many times, she'd answer "they were delivered vaginally!!" with much drama & gusto, while rolling her eyes . . . then a fascination on how i breast feed twins simultaneously, acted out with bread loaves under my arms. The identical/ fraternal debate . . . I have twin girls who had different clothes, eye shape, skin & hair colour, yet strangers would argue that they were identical. A lesson on 'two placentas' ensued. I started to wonder if I was part of a survey. Overall, people link negatives with twins, the classic 'double trouble', premature labour & extra workload. Personally I breezed through it & found twins to be the most positive experience. Sure they got into more mischief than my singleton children, yet they've been lucky to been seen as individuals by teachers, friends & family. I think twins are completely awesome. Next time you see twins, just smile at their mama & say "congratulations". #twins 2mon
  •   faeryfay As a mum of 17year old twins I'm in total agreement. 2mon
  •   posieshoots @wildtribe it certainly sped up my journey to four children. I think you're awesome too!! @cucina_melinda so enjoyed raising my twinnies. @allyt_hobart mwah!! @ms_ruby_mac not sure if you're being sarcastic?? @tuicreektales wow wee, that's a negative reaction to twins. A very clever friend of mine advised me, when having babies, all the questions people ask you are due to their own issues. It's so true, so many people have disappointing experiences with getting pregnant, their delivery or breastfeeding dreams. I was so lucky & relaxed. 2mon
  •   posieshoots @brismod indeed, why do strangers need to know all those things?? @thiscanberranlife funnily enough, Darwin has the highest proportion of 'naturally conceived' twins in Australia & that's where mine were born!! I loathed the 'do you know what you're having??' question most & happily said 'no, I didn't want to find out!!' Truly, what difference does it make, what gender you're having??!! Argh. Even after three girls, I didn't want to know. @hazelnigella oh dear, what's the opposite of 'natural' . . . Alien??!! I kind of liked the 'did you mean to have twins??' like I had a choice mid delivery?? I've also had 'did you mean to have so many children'. Wow. It's 4 not 14!! 2mon
  •   posieshoots @danil14c boy/ girl twins are asked if they're identical. Truly??!! @huntseek I used to babysit a Jamaican baby, born between my blonde twins & fair son. I was asked if I had an affair?? Another one, when I was just out with this gorgeous West Indian boy & my pregnant belly . . . "did you adopt then suddenly able to become pregnant??" I was actually astounded. The IVF question was asked all the time. I found it a little unusual as I already had a toddler, was mid 20's (& looked younger) but it was most often by people who used IVF. It was pretty confronting how people assumed it was so totally ok to ask so many personal questions. I can't imagine how a sensitive person would handle them or a PND mummy. Can't wait to push a pram with grandchildren & see if people openly ask if they're mine?? My Mum got that a lot with me as she was 40 when I was born & she hated it. 2mon
  •   posieshoots @faeryfay it's certainly nothing new. I find it funny that now they're teenagers I'm still asked those questions. Kudos to you teaching multiple children to drive. My nephew had quintuplets in his year - imagine getting the driving hours up??!! 2mon
  •   teresaluque My mother was a twin, they say it skeps a generation... Hoping for twin grandchildren!... eventually! 2mon
  •   teresaluque I meant skips 2mon
  •   huntseek I'm just completely astounded sometimes at the personal comments and questions people who don't even know me will make about our family situation in front of our young daughter. Have people no manners? Extremely comical at times! 2mon
