Simple


After being away from home for ten days, I'm taking things pretty quietly.


Thank you for all your good wishes, it was so lovely to read your sweet comments when I was sick. I'm much better now but it will take a little while to get back on track.


In the meantime I'm enjoying a slower pace, living more gently & taking pleasure in the simple things. My Christmas sugar bowl so shiny & happy.


I'm reacquainting myself with Lemonade,


and Smokey & the other chookies. It looks like Smokey is a Mr, not a Mrs, so unfortunately there will be no blue eggs!


It's been good to be home with everyone, ducks included. I missed my little house and family while I was gone.


Rosie is so funny and interesting, today she made green slime at holiday program. She has new lunch containers and a new lunch box and is SO ready for school in a week or so. I wonder how I'll be??


Lucy & Ruby From Next Door are planning a sleepover tonight...I wonder if there will be any sleep?

  
Summer holidays, so full of lovely things.
Like this pretty shelf I found at the Tip Shop, isn't it ace?
I don't have anywhere to put it yet but maybe one day I will,
I just love it.


So life is tootling along at a pleasant pace, fresh food from our garden,


sunny skies & Scrabble,
lots of cuddles and loving, to make up for time missed,
dreams & stories running through my head,


a lovely family
keeping my heart warm.
Hope things are good & happy in your world,
see you soon xo

Great to see you are home, Beck. Take it easy and let the people who love you spoil you.

Gorgeous little shelf, you lucky girl.

I was just putting away my old cornishware breakfast bowl and thinking it was looking shabby and maybe I should part with it, but you have reminded me how much I love those blue and white stripes.
