Anzac Day and tinyme

How has your ANZAC day been? Ours has been fun. This year was the first year that Stella and Oscar have marched in the parade and it was great to see them so excited about something that means so much to so many Australian and New Zealanders. I love our little community here in Sandgate and there is a real feeling of unity and togetherness and that comes through especially on days like these. I myself would like to find out more about my own Grandparents involvements in the War and then passing that history on to my children.

A couple of other fun Anzac day themed things as well - have you heard of tinyme? Possibly not seen as though up until now they have been known as Mooo. You know that really cool online company where you can get your kids names printed on just about anything? Well they are changing their name and if you go and like them on facebook then you are increasing the amount of discount they will be offering you on 1st May when tinyme goes live. They also have on offer some really cool ANZAC day printables that you can download here. I know I have nearly missed the boat on this one, but I still think they are worth giving a go. We have made some poppies today and they were super easy and very effective.

At a blogging conference that I went to recently (DPCON12 - post coming soon!) Mooo had this cool journal cover in our goodie bag and also a voucher for a free personalised diary, and mine arrived in the mail last week, I think it is pretty cool and you have got to love something personalised! You should definitely go and see if there is something that takes your fancy!

And my last little ANZAC day tidbit, thought I would drag out something from the archives that you may want to try this Anzac day especially if you have been cooking up an Anzac biscuit storm! It is definitely not good for the diet but oh so good!! Thankfully not an Anzac biscuit in sight in our house so nothing to worry about here, but I would love to know if you give it a try :)

(Please note, due to blogger giving me lots of head aches and iphoto not playing nice either, this post is way out of date! But I decided to post it anyway because I couldn't be bothered deleting it - so obviously mooo is now tinyme and the discount it worth 15% so go and buy something! )
