Tuesday


The last week has had it's moments. A difficult family issue popped up and although I think it is resolved it left me feeling pretty drained. People/family/relationship stuff is so complex isn't it? So this morning after contemplating a messy kitchen, washing to be done & other exciting chores I chose instead to meander down to Hepburn Springs to see my mum. Possibly angling for a little TLC and a cuppa I was lucky to find both. Her new house/church/abode is looking wonderful and is becoming more & more like 'her place' every day. Lucy put these pretty pieces of glass along the window.



You may have noticed that Sue has a lot of colour in her life. Do you like the beautiful blanket she knitted?





Lots of little things that catch my eye in her new space.



Funny owl creatures brought back from Santa Fe.

More creatures...



Mum.

Back at home I continued on with the decluttering/remodelling of our little sitting room. It's looking so much better and lighter! It helped that today was so sunny, it was almost spring like. The dogs kindly kept me company.


This is Max, he is a deep thinker. Especially when it comes to menu options. He is a big old lover boy and he is making the most of some quality couch time. (Note new couch! Yes it arrived, & thankyou Michelle for carting away the old one. Not a fun job. But as ugly and smelly as the old couch was it did see us through alot of meaningful moments. Four new babies were fed and cuddled on that couch (were some of them made on it....possibly?) Anyway lots of happy family times involve that old couch so I really was kind of fond of it. Not fond enough, though, to hang on to it. One too many 'accidents' rendered it majorly stinky, and wonky, courtesy of a half eaten cushion (thanks to Jessie the dog, may she rest in peace).


Daisy & Max having a love fest. Oh those loving eyes. The dogs have been so good lately. Now that they are in the back yard, not the front, alot of the problems we were having have ceased. Daisy isn't running away anymore and Max is no longer terrorising the poor postie. Both dogs are having regular walkies, are sporting glamourous new haircuts & their self esteem is at an all time high! Wow!
You can probably tell, I love my pets! They are a big part of our family. They are so sweet natured & they give us a lot of love. Their unconditional love is so soothing & good for us all and their love for each other is pretty special too. Hope you & yours are having a lovely week xoxo

Still thinking..... headache tablets? Rat poison? Vintage apple core? Underpants? The world is my oyster...

Mums are so good at that cup of tea TLC malarkey. Hope it worked a veritable treat and the issues are ironed out as flat as flat. Um, trust Max generally opts for an alternative to rat poison?

How lovely your dogs look! Our Raja has just got toasted marshmallow caught in her coat (thanks to the boys - who else?) and I'm really not looking forward to combing her tonight!

Thanks for this lovely post. I do hope things are sorted out now.

Your mum has a great sense of style. I love all of the colourful objects (especially the blanket).
Hope you're feeling better and a bit more refreshed.

Hey Beck, how wonderful for you that your Mum lives around the corner for those occasions when you need a sanctuary away from it all. Her place looks gorgeous and colourful. That peg doll looks so much like her. Can't wait til our Friday cup of tea. XX

Your mom's place looks so neat! I'd love to see it up close. What cute pets you've got. Congrats on the new sofa. We need a new one too. We've had ours 14 years. EW!

I love the colored glass on the window sill. The white walls make all the color pop--I like that.
Hope the tea and company helped boost your spirits. And lastly, how sweet are those pups???

Your Mum's colour is just wonderful! I love how mothers can always provide that much needed support and place to *sit a while and breathe*
