This week I have been rather obsessed with afternoon tea and will be posting some afternoon tea adventures to celebrate our ‘Sew & Tea‘ themed Action Pack over the next couple of weeks. Check out my baking adventures – and make some cakes – try the cinnamon tea cake – a lovely madeira cake and if you are feeling super adventurous and celebratory why not a chocolate mousse cake. And this week I have been fighting a sinus infection – and I think it might have got me . I have been using a neti pot twice a day to try to wash out the germs and I think it is helping – but the germs are multiplying faster than I can wash them out. Anyway wish me luck!

Also this past week we also just finished sitting Naplan a controversial (Australian) national testing system introduced by the government a few years ago. Our school – being a unique community run school with child centred approach doesn’t worry about this test too much – but my youngest has been strangely desperate to sit the test for years – and finally it was his year to do it. He is a competitive little soul with big expectations of himself and so naturally he had a panic attack on the first day – but was ok after that – and they had a party at the end of the 3 days of testing – so all was well with the week!

Last week we launched the third issue of our Action Pack: Mini-mag for kids who want to do stuff! This one is themed ‘Sew & Tea’, and is full of sewing and tea drinking projects. Find out more here or purchase yours right now for only US$5

{ps. you can post your finished projects in our Action Pack Flickr Project Gallery}
