It's not you it's me ...

We have had a tumultuous relationship, you have been there in the hard times and the good. At some point though I lost my way. I feel the relationship has become codependent and before the sweet turns sour I think we should.......take a break. I have tried being "just friends" but it never seems to work out. I think space is what we need - I'm afraid there is no room for you here, not in the fridge, not in the freezer and not in that secret corner of the cupboard. Let's give it some time and take it slowly from there, one 70% cocoa piece at a time.

Bright Ideas

I love this lamp from Daisy Chain Vintage on Etsy - just when you think you've got the world on your shoulders, you have a little friend to give a helping hand or two.

Summer on My Mind

The talk around here is all about the summer holidays, possibly this is only the focus of my talk, regardless, summer is in the air. Spring is the appetiser with the flowers ,the clear skys, cool breezes and change of wardrobe. (the irony here is our tanks are empty and I would kill for a good torrential downfall). Then comes summer, we seek the sun but look for shade, we long for the heat but constantly try to stay cool - it's love-hate, the basis of all passionate relationships. This summer I think I will choose to be in the home above feeling cool and looking dewy in shades of white, rather than in a lather somewhere else, anywhere else really.

This is it - I have been coasting along pretending it will all work itself out - as of tomorrow I will not procrastinate (yes I am aware this is an oxymoron), I will exercise regardless of time be it not enough or not the right time, I will stop stop stop eating my secret chocolate almonds I pretend I don't and I will will will do at least 10 minutes of my varga girl style pilates exercises once a day. This is SERIOUS!!

Nook to meet you xx

We are currently looking to extend our 'parent retreat' to house a small sitting area, study nook and library and I love the feel of the nook below. As I have previously posted I have a little nook envy, I think it is a regression to cubby house envy - I was always desperate for a treehouse, a little space of my own, despite the fact that i was an only child and in reality the entire house was my own.


I had to add the image below - I just love it, but can see our water tanks being perpetually empty if the boys had one in their bathroom. It has a hypnotic quality about it I think is appealing.
