Yellow

Today is Daffodil Day here in NZ.


It's all to do with cancer.. and remembering and HOPING  (and fundraising!)


My mama died of cancer.
Some things turn a bit yellow for the day over here in NZ. The kids trundled off to school with yellow t'shirts on, clutching their gold coins.

We wear yellow at our place.

I thought I was a woman of many colours but today, unlike other years,
 I FOUND NOTHING YELLOW to wear!
( maybe there's something in a box in the garage that I haven't unearthed since the move...?)
Apart from bags and other accessories!
So that will be my new op shop mission!!! I'm on a Yellow Hunt!


Our regular friday playgroup jaunt. 

I made this lemon slice to share with the other mamas and dads.. (so good - it's like lemon meringue pie in a slice)


The kids iced biscuits with yellow icing and 100s and 1000s...
That's a vintage baby dress ( Iris is wearing it as a top) from my childhood. 


Cuteness...

(It's also the last official last day of Winter)
Spring is beginning to emerge..

I LOVE Spring!

So much loveliness! My mama died of cancer too. I love the beautiful pic of you and Arlo - and could we PLEEEEEASE have the lemon-slice-that's-like-lemon-meringue-pie recipe!?

Yay for the end of winter - but it snowed and sleeted here today... so it doesn't feel like the end yet...

Ah, what lovely photos, especially the first one of you and Arlo. Good luck in your yellow hunt, I am sure you will find something grand, and look as fab as the kids, and your lemon slices! So sorry you lost your mama, yellow is a wonderfully cheery colour yet I can feel the sadness too. xxxx

Beautiful pics spreading the word of a needed cause, but also a dad of remembering.

The kiddies all look delightful in yellow. Wishing you yellow, sunshiny goodness in your hunts at the oppies.

I too wouldn't say no to the recipe of such a wonderful sounding slice. X

A lovely post and gorgeous photos. I have been wearing my daffodil all week. I lost my mother-in-law to cancer so I am very supportive of Daffodil week. Yes, please share the lemon slice recipe - it looks delicious.
