Cat Miedecke  Aiming for mindful living amid the chaos of 4 kids. Sometimes we get there sometimes we don't. Country Tasmania. Website coming soon


I have tea, I have kiss biscuit and I have snail mail. Sigh....and the kids are exhausted from a day at the pool. Perfect. #simplepleasures #slowliving (@rarepearstudio ๐Ÿ˜˜)

I may not have folded any washing for days, and as for the vacuuming? Pah!! Have I finished any of the renovation goals I set myself before the baby arrives? Nup. (Seriously I have 10 weeks to go what is everyone getting worked up about). But I do have enough #homegrown and #homemade #jam #chutney and #bottledfruit to sink a ship. I may have run out of room in the pantry, but considering we are expecting 31 and 35 degrees for the next couple of days they can live here on the kitchen wood heater. And if all goes to shit when the baby does arrive at least we can have jam on toast and bottled stone fruit for dinner every night for the first six months. #simplepleasures

Just a little scene from our #bushwalk in #cataractgorge earlier in the week. ๐Ÿ˜ How are your school holidays going??

Took the kids to visit long time special friends today. I undertook a prac placement on the property when I was studying rural management, and we have been friends ever since. My husband and I first lived together in one of the smaller cottages on the property, and then later lived in another bigger house, we had the two older children. We got married in their garden, and had our photographs just about where the wheel barrow is. The currently have 7 adorable border collie puppies today, so we cuddled them like crazy. Then we ate carrots straight out of the ground and beans off the vine - a bit of a tradition when the kids visit! They helped in the shearing shed for a bit (crutching today) and explored the gardens. Feeling very lucky to have such wonderful close friends who welcome us even when itโ€™s been a long time between drinks. Xx

I found myself with just one kid at home earlier this week. So of course when youโ€™re 7 months pregnant you decide to go for a bush walk!! Iโ€™m still high fiving myself for making it to the Duck Reach Power station and back, I had forgotten how beautiful the Cataract Gorge is, and didnโ€™t realise how much history went with โ€œDuck Reachโ€. This support on the suspension bridge was built out of blue stone in 1929. That year Launceston experienced the worst floods on record, and the other side was washed away, then rebuilt out of reinforced concrete. Prior to the bridge being built everything was brought in via flying fox. Did you know Launceston was the first city in Australia to have electric lighting? This hydro electric power station was the height of engineering technology for its time. Our first home was right next to the gorge and when my now 10 year old was a baby we would often go for walks there. For those of you who arenโ€™t from Tassie, the gorge is only five minutes away from the Launceston CBD, but is like a world away. Beautiful walking tracks wander along the side of the gorge, and the first basin includes a (free) swimming pool and a chair lift from one side to the other. It was a beautiful day, and I treasured the rare one on one time I got with my eldest. ๐Ÿ˜

Oh my @_michellecrawford and @acountrytable thank you so much for introducing me to roast fruit ๐Ÿ˜ I think you may have changed my life (I know that sounds melodramatic but seriously...). We roasted these #homegrown #cherries with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and served them up with #homemade custard - but I reckon they would be amazing with icecream ! Thanks again you two!! #yumola #simplepleasures

Slow days...love school holidays....๐Ÿ˜ #mumlife

#zerowaste lawn mower ๐Ÿ˜‰

That feeling you get when you're relaxing under a tree in the shade, on a hot day, next to the dam - when mans best friend (who's been swimming in the dam) appears, shakes - and looks sooo pleased with himself ๐Ÿ˜–

When your 5 year old has better developed spacial awareness than you so you put him to work matching your jars and lids while you start on the next batch of #jam (and he actually enjoys himself ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘) #zerowaste
