This Past Week....

JD brought these home for me a couple of nights ago. It made my night. There were so many of them I have another vase full of them on the fireplace. I took this at around 7am, and the morning sunlight coming into the back of house was so beautiful.

If only I could swim like this. I'm hopeless, but it's on my list of things to achieve this year. I just can't get my breathing right and end up half drowning. And I certainly don't have a pretty style happening either.

Doll is growing up so fast. She's become so eloquent. She is such a sweetie and I love being in her company. It's such a pity her skirt is covering her red and white polka dot rain boots - she had insisted on wearing them, on the wrong feet and watching these little out turned feet clomping along was hilarious.

This colour is energising. And peaceful. And just divine.

Our back yard needs a colour overhaul. This is the place we bought the colour from last time, but the shop didn't look like this back then. It's been totally revamped and styled up. It's a huge open space with just colour on the wall. Testament to the popularity of their products. These guys have stone paint and milk paints and special finishes. I thought I knew the colour I was going in to buy but now they've got a whole new range and their old colour cards just confused me. I came home with 2 sample pots of a blue that once painted on the wall looked so revolting - way too purple for my liking, so back to square one.
