The gift of giving this Christmas

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang I’ve mentioned previously about what Christmas means to our family, it’s very important that we spend time with our extended family and we really enjoy giving them a gift each year.  Gift giving isn’t about the obligation of always giving a gift, it’s so much more.  We put thought […]

    What a beautiful young man your son sounds like. I wish there was more kids around like him. So many seem so selfish and all out for themselves these days. I hope my boys grow up to be caring people too :-)

Quick reader survey to help improve content, daily tasks and more

I will be taking a break over Christmas for some much needed time off, away from technology and to spend with family.  But after I have done this I am going to take some time to prepare my content, daily tasks and a few new printables for 2013.  But before I do this I would […]

Summer fun and lazy Sundays + Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang and Baskin-Robbins Hubby and I have been so busy the past few weeks.  Mr Organised is working a lot of extra hours as he is running his own Accounting business. As for me, I have had my 9 month old niece recently stay for 4 days, it was really lovely […]

  • Ice cream is my BIGGEST downfall, I LOVE it! So to enjoy it even longer I eat it with a tea spoon so it lasts longer and I devour it slowly. Don’t judge me!! :) ReplyCancel

  • I like to eat my ice cream slowly but I also lick around the edge of the cone to stop the drips and to help the ice cream keep it’s shape!ReplyCancel

  • Megan

    I use a teaspoon to eat my ice cream but to make it last longer I lick the ice cream from the spoon slowly. Because of my strange ice cream eating habits I never eat ice cream in public as in the past people have looked at me. When the two younger kids are eating their ice creams I will lick around the cone so that I can help stop the drips. It’s funny because I try to get them to take bites and eat it fast BUT that’s only because I don’t want sticky children in the car lolReplyCancel

  • Jo-Anne Wells

    Every season is ice cream season for me! I’m afraid I’m a speed eater and definitely not lady like either!ReplyCancel

  • Jane

    I am a fast ice cream eater & unfortunately for my waist not satisfied & have to have another just to make sure I really enjoyed it as much as I thought I did. Of course I did cause it is Ice Cream – YUM!!ReplyCancel

  • No waster…this is more difficult in public but at home when no one is around(dont want to give the kids any ideas) the ice cream is just too good to waste so i find myself licking the bowl !! Mint choc chip is my downfall, cant go past it.ReplyCancel

  • im a licker i have really sensitive teeth so i take my sweet time eating my sweet treat but i lick up all the dripsReplyCancel

  • I eat it slowly and savour the flavour and indulgence. But my main priority is to hide from the kids so I don’t have to share!ReplyCancel

  • I like to eat it slowly, licking and making sure nothing drips or falls off always keeping a nice rounded shape …. unless it’s a really hot day and it’s melting fast, then it’s eat as quick as I can or I’ll lose it to a puddle on the floor!ReplyCancel

  • Kelley

    Mmmmm I love B&R. Gold Medal Ribbon is the best (slow or fast). :) ReplyCancel

    Scoff it quick smart before it melts!ReplyCancel

    I love to eat it slowly and I am always boring and choose……VANILLA.. my favourite!ReplyCancel

  • i love melting icecream. i eat my icecream slowlyReplyCancel

  • I am a licker! I like to take my time – the ice-cream *has* to be nice and even and rounded – unless it’s melting – then I’m super quick lick lick lick :) ReplyCancel

  • Felic

    Neatly! My life is a complete mess but one thing I’ve always done super neatly and in an bizarrely organised fashion is the eating of ice cream. But… anything done properly takes time and therefore so does my ice-cream eating…ReplyCancel

  • Melissa Daly

    I’m a selfish ice cream eater – I take my time because I hold out till the kids are in bed and then I don’t have to share or get interrupted. I can savour every mouthful. Vanilla with crushed up maltesers and black cherries or the amazing summer chiller of vanilla and watermelon. YUMMOReplyCancel

  • I’m a fast eater. I eat the top off above the cone and then eat sections of the cone leaving another icecream top. I continue this technique until the end. I also make sure I push the icecream down into the cone with my tongue.ReplyCancel

  • Thanh

    I’m an ‘around the globe’ ice cream eater. The technique to this is to turn the ice cream cone while you lick the ice cream on top! More or less like an ice cream turntable!ReplyCancel

  • Di

    I’m a top to bottom eater – eat the ice cream down to the cone and then turn the cone whilst nibbling off cone and ice-cream. I also try to push the icecream down the cone (with my tongue!) so I get nice and even icecream eating!ReplyCancel

  • Narelle Howell

    I prefer icecream in a bowl or a cup with a spoon. I like it to get soft and creamy. I don’t stir too much, don’t like it sloppy. Just a bit melted. The spoon has to be a small one, not a big one. Lasts longer that way. I enjoy it slowly. Definitely more than one scoop.ReplyCancel

  • Trish

    I am a pig basically as icecream is my favourite all time food, I even eat it in the middle of winter wrapped up in a blanket (as my good friend will atest to!). I love eating it straight out of the tub, somtimes on its own and sometimes with twisties as my spoon, oh yumm.ReplyCancel

  • Mireya

    Slightly melted!ReplyCancel

  • kath woods

    One scoop,2 scoop 3 scoop 4 no matter how much i always want more

    sometimes i lick, sometimes i spoon,sometimes i gauge the whole afternoon.ReplyCancel

  • Heba El-Hakim

    I love to eat my ice cream leisurely, neatly, in a bowl, with a spoon! So I am an organised ice cream eater :) ReplyCancel

  • Alicia

    Well, I definitely don’t let the drips fall. Pretty efficient, lip – bite routine. :) ReplyCancel

  • I like to make it like soft serve icecream by using a spoon to whip it then saver every mouthful :) ReplyCancel

  • I’m a nibbler! I take little nibbles & savour every bite!ReplyCancel

  • Licking at a decent enough pace so there are no drips!ReplyCancel

  • I agree family time is the most important of all. I’m not big on TV and have always stuck to no tv on weekends except the odd family movie. We are lucky to have an ice cream van come down our street every Sat evening at 6pm. The kids are allowed to sit up and wait for this special treat and we all sit outside and watch the sun go down together. The kids get cones but I’m a super slow ice cream eater – it’s gotta be in a cup!ReplyCancel

  • Rach

    I used to bite and chew, then I met my husband. I wondered why I always finished my icecream before him – he taught me how to lick icecream cones, and now they last much longer!ReplyCancel

  • Jan

    I am a reformed biter, swallower now an intentional, slow, smooth licker!!ReplyCancel

  • I eat my ice cream at a ‘normal’ pace – not too fast to get a cold headache and not too slow the kids want to help me finish it off.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah

    I can’t eat the cones anymore so have to have a cup, I miss ice cream cones!!! I usually share a cup with my little guy :) ReplyCancel

  • Tinalee

    I love icecream!! I prefer to mix mine in a bowl to make it really soft and eat it slowly. This way I avoid brain freeze! My favourite baskin flavour of all time was key lime cheesecake icecreamReplyCancel

  • Kelly Lakeman

    I’m a licker of an icream in a cone and shape it as i go along. If it’s on a stick then I put as much in my mouth as i can and suck as i pull it back out again so it eventually creates a point at the top! Then with the last little bit left i will snap it off the stick so I can chew the last bit!!! If it’s with a spoon i will put a BIG amount on it and shove it all in my mouth and pull it out again so i am only taking a bit at a time! I’m odd I know … it’s what makes me ME!!!! ps now I REALLY am feeling like ICECREAM!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Amy

    I love to start at the top, have a few bites, then i lick around the bottom off the ice-cream coan, to continue i have a little bit off the ice cream coan. Then start the process again, its kind off like a merry-go-round when I come to think off it.ReplyCancel

  • Shaaron Currie

    I like to eat mine slow but not messy. Very hard to do.ReplyCancel

  • Abby Easthope

    I have never been a big ice cream person, except for Baskins. I really, really love Baskins. I always eat it with their choc fudge topping, sometimes going for the banana splits or waffle cones… I’m not a speed eater but I like it still frozen – so I sometimes have to re-freeze halfway through :) ReplyCancel

  • I like to let it melt a little and eat it straight out of the tub. Cookies n Cream is my alltime favourite.ReplyCancel

  • Gillian Larcombe

    I’d call myself a “dart and lick”, as I slowly turn the cone around, looking for driblets as the icecream starts to melt, then darting my tongue out to catch those driblets before they run onto my hand. I take a loooooong time to eat icecream!ReplyCancel

  • I’m a slow & long licker. If I have different flavours I alternate licks between flavours. :) ReplyCancel

  • Nicole

    I’m a savourer. Prefer a spoon – a little spoon so it goes further ;) ReplyCancel

  • Merryl

    I lick my ice cream slowly and savour every mouthful.ReplyCancel

  • Lyndal

    I have mine in a tub with a spoon and eat it pretty fast when it’s baskin-robbins…ReplyCancel

  • Being a mum, I think I’d classify myself as “the cleaner”. I have to swap my ice-cream with each child before they end up a huge mess (much lie your picture above). No matter how much I tell them where to get the drips, they always persist on going from the top (especially Mr 5). But they’re used to me grabbing there’s for a quick “round up”, then they get it back again. Easy!ReplyCancel

  • del king

    When it comes to ice cream, I have no off button and I can not share. I am a scoffer. I figure the faster I eat it, the less opportunity I have to share. I then offer to clean up the drips from the ice cream cones that the kids are holding! Not very nice of me I know but it is ice cream :-) ReplyCancel

  • I start at the top slowly and lick my way round and then chew the cone love the crunch sound before it becomes soggy. My daughter is slow and steady and always make a messReplyCancel

  • Kathy McMullen

    I am definitely a slow slurper! Love to make it last.ReplyCancel

  • Jessie Hay

    Eating icecream fast,
    Is the best for sure,
    Sharing isn’t a possibility,
    When there is no more!
    No dribbles can escape,
    Making a mess everywhere,
    And I finish before my toddler,
    So a tantrum I am spared :) ReplyCancel

  • I suffer from sensitive teeth so i tend to lick and use my lips and tongue bypassing my front teeth and then suck until that bit is dissolved before moving on, of course the sensitivity is to the cold not the delicious crunch of the cone. Although i’m prone to skipping the cone when i am out with the children in favour of a cup (less mess for me to clean up and less icecream i am guaranteed to wear)ReplyCancel

  • I just dive right in. Great ice-cream doesn’t wait to technique.ReplyCancel

  • I have sensitive teeth so am forced to lick instead of use my teeth (watching others bite through an icy-pole runs a chill down my spine lol!)
    I’m always the last person to finish eating my ice cream :) ReplyCancel

  • Katie Miller

    I love me some rocky road & peppermint together and start from the middle and swirl my tounge while turning my wrist all the way around! Yum! making me want to go get one now! Lucky for me Baskin Robbins is right up the street!!ReplyCancel

  • I’m the mummy who doesn’t buy herself an ice cream because inevitably at least on one of my three will not like or complete their ice cream and I end up eating it. If I bought one for myself I’d never get any because one of the kids would decide that they like mine betterReplyCancel

  • I’m a spoon licker – I prefer mine in a cup. I take a scoop with my spoon then turn the spoon unside down and lick the ice-cream off :) ReplyCancel

  • Naomi.H.

    I love to eat mine slow and enjoy every moment of the tasty treat.. Love licking all the way around the ice cream and then when I hit the cone I take little bits all the way around so my cone stays the same level as I eat down near bottom.. Once I have a little cone left I then just gobble that bit up in my mouth..Best way is slow…ReplyCancel

  • Nicki

    im a licker, I cant handle it when I see people bite their ice-cream. I am also a vanilla fan, nothing beats vanilla ice-creamReplyCancel

  • Jennifer

    hmmmm, just the thought of licking peppermint choc chip….. I wouldn’t call myself a slow slurper, but I do like to take my time and enjoy every mouth full. Unfortunately with little ones to attend to I find myself starting as a slow slurper, but then changing to a speed eater so I can rescue the kids as ice cream runs down their arms.ReplyCancel

  • Shauns

    Cookie dough….mmmmm…
    Ice cream must be devoured (especially cookie dough). Lick over the top and then around the sides to prevent any drips (can’t waste ANY!). I can still remember when my cousin visited Australia for the first time (from Belorussia, when 10 years old) and tried his first ice cream cone. There was no method and it was a soggy heap in his hand – disaster!! And chocolate icecream too…ReplyCancel

  • Jen

    A Summer’s day is not complete without an ice cream and Baskin & Robbins is my absolute favourite. As a foster carer and mother of many, I don’t get out much so the best kind of ice cream is in a waffle cone, contains chocolate, is eaten slowly but not so slow it melts, and not shared! :-) ReplyCancel

  • SylviaB

    I’m a top-down ice cream eater now, but as a child I couldn’t resist nibbling the tip off the cone pretty much at the beginning of each ice cream. That always ended up in a huge mess, as the melted ice cream would start running down the sides of the cone AND out of the little hole I’d nibbled at the bottom.
    Now that I’ve pretty much mastered the neat way of eating ice cream, I try to instruct my two children, without much success so far. One of them is a scoffer, the other a very slow licker, both styles being messy…ReplyCancel

  • Ruth West

    I’m a lazy, leisurely licker.
    Hubby is a brisk biter.
    Both kids are sticky scoffers!ReplyCancel

  • I would describe myself as a slow steady methodical licker! I love ice-cream especially Baskin-Robbins and my fave flavour is choc chip. Yumm.ReplyCancel

  • I’m a lip smacking slow licker ice-cream eater and in a waffle cone , but I’lll take a bowl when it’s an icecream sundae.ReplyCancel

  • Amie

    I usually eat my ice cream quickly – a great excuse to get another serve in before anybody notices!!!ReplyCancel

  • I definitely don’t eat it slowly! I like to eat it before it melts :-) ReplyCancel

  • AmberB

    I like to eat my ice cream quickly to avoid drippage. YUMMY!!ReplyCancel

  • Kimberley Belford

    I also a a quick ice cream eater as when I was a kid my uncles used to always try and eat my ice cream – so my thoughts were the quicker I ate it the less likely they were to get any of it lol, My daughter always bites the end off Grrr lol and it goes everywhere lolReplyCancel

  • Debbie Barton

    I love to lick around the edges then slurp down from the top until it is level with the top of the cone. I then like to bite the bottom off the cone and suck it out through the bottom…..yummy!!!! If it is a waffle cone I like to unpeel the cone which is my favourite part.

  • I definitely enjoy and savour every lick of the Baskin and Robbins Pralines and Cream. I only splurge occassionally on one of these special ice creams but make sure I make it last as long as possible.ReplyCancel

  • Looking over the years,
    I can see my tastes have changed.
    My ice cream sensitivity,
    Evolved as I have aged.

    My first years I demanded,
    The exact same as my mum!
    Together we would conquer,
    Old school Raisin – Rum!

    As twilight settled over,
    My crazy teenage years.
    Fat free So Good Chocolate,
    Ment skinny clothes to wear!

    Then my world was altered,
    When I became a wife.
    Mother to my children…
    A new but blissful life!

    Matured, my tastes were craving,
    A sweet and sinful dream.
    That’s when I discovered,
    Baskin’s Cookie Cream!

    My first Baskin’s adventure,
    Was of the sinful kind.
    Their Sundaes made with Brownie,
    Completely blew my mind!

    Now I have an Ice Cream Method.
    And it’s called “The Ultimate Taste”.
    It’s where I take a mighty spoonful,
    And nothing goes to waste.

    I make sure that every element,
    Is spooned up the exact same time.
    Every sprinkle, nut and wafer,
    Is declared to be all mine!

    Simply put each spoonful holds,
    A mini sundae of its own.
    It’s the way I’ve always eaten it!
    From a child, to now I’m grown!

    Merry Xmas!
    Thanks for the give away x

  • Chloe

    I’m a speed eater it tastes too good to savour!!ReplyCancel

  • A slow licker, being careful to finish before there’s a dribble. :-) ReplyCancel

  • If it is in bowl I stir it all up until it is like a soft serve, if it is in a cone I just lick it slowly around and around so it doesn’t meltReplyCancel

  • Tamala

    Mo all-time favourite ice cream flavour was made by a company in the South West of WA and was maple-walnut, but unforutnately its not made anymore, but my close second favourite flavour is Hokey Pokey from Baskins Robbins and my waist line is protesting the opening of a new show just 5 minutes away! When I eat I generally eat fast asI detest it when ice cream starts to melt over my fingers. I eat it in a waffle cone, slowly pushing the ice cream to the bottom so I can enjoy the last ice creamy, waffley biteReplyCancel

  • Depends on the ice cream!!! Usually though I eat mine SO quickly that I then get to help miss 4 finish hers off ;-) hehe cheeky yes but it means I get MORE ice cream. lol. Waffle cone all the way generally cookie dough/cookies and cream or chocolate/double chocolate or triple chocolate flavour ANY day!ReplyCancel

  • Caroline

    I lick the top then run my tongue around the ice cream then lick underneath sides then have a bit from the top and repsat no spillage this way especially for the basking and robins caramel choc crunch yummyReplyCancel

{GIVEAWAY} Cushionopoly

I’ve mentioned on Facebook a few times recently of my new love for Chevron and surprisingly not many people knew what Chevron is.  Basically it’s a zig zag pattern on fabric, commonly on a white background. There is something about it that feels fresh. We purchased a new couch late last year, one that is […]

    It would have to be a combination of Mignight Madame and Noir Blanc from the Belle Amour range to lift the guest room where I try to sneak some ‘me’ time to read, relax and rest on rare occassions.

    It always takes me an extra 5 minutes to find my keys in my handbag. How handy and timesaving would the key finder be for me.ReplyCancel

  • I’d love to win so I’m not digging only to find crumbs, receipts and everything else I don’t require at that time!ReplyCancel

  • I find the Handbag Butler concept so darn brilliant.. but the keyfinder? OMW.. you have NO idea how utterly DERANGED I am with my keys!
    Who knows how I can be so completely inconsistent and forgetful with them? I just need a workable system.
    And here it is!
    Not only is this set so totally functional, but it is beautiful as well! I adore owls.
    I would love to win this set, so that I can have no more excuses for frenzied scruffying around in my bag, turfing out assorted kiddy paraphenalia whilst I plead with Murphy for my keys, before Smaller wets himself or Small slopes off into the carpark whilst I am distracted.
    One less deranged Mummy on the streets surely must be a plus for all concerned :) ReplyCancel

The rest of the house will be happy too; they hate playing the game “Find Mum’s Keys, Where Could They BE?”ReplyCancel

    My Grandma had one and I have always thought it was the most beautiful, grown up accessory possible.

Mix a little SR flour into the yoghurt and mix in the cereal. Place in a greased and lined slice tray and bake for 15 minutes. So Yummy.ReplyCancel

    Homemade muffins and pikelets, banana cake, fruits, nuts, soy crisps and rice cakes are all staples for our boys lunch boxes. But I’d really love to trial these products for my nephew more than anything. He’s lactose and gluten intolerant so finding snacks for him is a challenge.ReplyCancel

    My son is dairy and gluten intolerant. He loves eggs atm so we often take a boiled egg with us when we are out and about for a snack. The more kid friendly options for daily and gluten intolerance the better – not much choice atm.ReplyCancel

It’s important to take some time out away from technology and enjoy the outdoors

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang There are times lately where I have been finding myself so busy that I have been saying no to the kids having their friends over for playdates after school.  With reasons like we have plans, I wasn’t in the mood to entertain a few extra kids (which is a […]

    I’ve got three kids and have had a Kia Carnival for 5 years, and I love it! I swore I’d never own a ‘family bus’, but it is a fabulous car.ReplyCancel

  • Bec

    Had to giggle at your, “Yes, that’s 6 kids in the car!” comment. I drive around with my 7 kids in the car everyday – a Hiace commuter bus. The Carnival looks lovely, but a tad small for our brood!ReplyCancel

  • you fit 6 kids bikes AND the kids in the car ?
    wow, i must say i am impressed.
    not that I can relate, the boy hates his bike with a passion 0_o
    (but we can fold the scooter so no => ) nice big family car anyway ! ReplyCancel

  • Helen

    @nikki: I think Kat only put the bikes in with the back row down ie only 3 back (ie middle row) seats available. We bought 2001 Chrysler grand voyager when about to have no 4 in 2010, now 2 yrs later fitting no 5 in too but we have to stop the babies now, or else buy a different ‘bus’ as it is only 2 nice big seats in middle row with passage between! We chose it over Toyota and Kia for its boot size though, as we never have luxury of putting back seats down and could still fit a few small bikes in boot I reckon, for me the important thing is the large volume of shopping has to fit!!!! Plus more anchor points for car seats than competitors models at least for the year models we were looking at…. It is a bus, no hiding from it, but somehow not as boxy as the Kias and toyotas.ReplyCancel
