You may have noticed that I love a social media photo challenge … or three! Norlin from Baubles, Bubbles and Bags and I had so much fun with #LippyaDay that we’ve decided to kick off April with #shoein.
Last night, dinner disaster struck in our house. We had all the ingredients for (Kimba-friendly onion and garlic-free) burritos – mince, sour cream, tomato, lettuce, cheese, tomato paste, smoked paprika, avocado, canned beans and sweet corn. And, of course, tortillas. Except when I got home I realised the tortillas weren’t in fact on the kitchen bench. They were in the bin. Oops.
Do you love Instagram as much as me? Yes? I’m Kimbalikes on Instagram if you’d like to follow my Instadventures.
I was looking through my Tumblr yesterday – I post to Tumblr from Instagram and use it as a handy photo library for blogging – and was amazed at the amount of shots of my shoes! So I’m sharing the Shoes of Instagram.
What do you find yourself Instagramming again and again and again?

Boyo at his first school swimming carnival. He’s the yellow streak!
Blogopolis 2012 was on my mind! I was contemplating which breakout sessions to attend, what to wear, what to bring, and so excited about meeting lots of bloggy friends and icons in the flesh!
Boyo met my BFF’s gorgeous family in January this year. This is him having a quick cuddle with baby Jude just before baby Jude decided he really wanted Mummy instead!
This is my local Red Cross shop, where I find many bargains!
I found this divine 1930s vintage mirror discarded on the side of the road. Luckily, the lights were red as I hopped out of the car to claim it as my prize! It looks beautiful in my downstairs bathroom, with my vintage bird print from the archives at the State Library of NSW reflected in it.
As an expat, you miss the little things of home. Yes, there is jam in Australia. Some of it is even very good. But there is something special about a brand “from home”. When you find a whole shelf of it at your local supermarket, and it’s even on sale, well, that’s just even better!
My laundry is sunshine soft!
I finally met my friend B of B Being Cool at Nuffnang Blogopolis 2012. She was just as I’d imagined – really lovely!
The Welshman and I had a child free day, so we went out for lunch and walked in the rain at the beautiful Hyde Park, Sydney. It was cold and wet, yet oh so romantic.
Yes, my bag is usually this tidy. Otherwise, I can’t find anything!
You might not know that I spent ten years living in a zoo! My dad has worked for Orana Park in Christchurch, New Zealand, since I was a little girl, and I was lucky enough to live there from a ten year old until I moved out of home at 19.
These cherries were absolutely delicious but it felt odd to be eating them in winter! The imperfectly red coloured cherry was even more delicious than the cherry-coloured cherries. Go figure!
The Welshman and I dressed up as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton for Boyo’s school fundraiser, the Rozcars, and shared a little photobooth love. I just adore these photos. It was so much fun taking them and we look so happily in love. Obviously, we are!
In January, we went to Newcastle to catch up with some old friends and their gorgeous clutch of kids. Newcastle Port is absolutely beautiful and has been glammed up, but you cannot forget it is still a working port and very noisy very early in the morning!
After several weeks of rain, there is nothing for it but to set up a veritable stable of clothes horses inside our house. It is truly amazing just how much laundry you can get on them!
