I got a preview of our house portrait today……eeeeeeee!!!!!!  Rebekka Seale is fabulous.  In December last year I stumbled across her on a blog (I think it was yours Hannah). Her house portraits make you want to rush out and paint your door red.  It was love at first sight.  But unfortunately she was having a break from house portraits at that time.  On her blog she mentioned that she would relist them in her etsy shop early January.  I wrote it on a post it and stuck it to the computer screen so I would not forget.  So in January after some communications I sent her this:


(This was our house two years ago.  The gardens and weeds are a little more established now)

And today I got this in my email:


The original is in the post.  I can’t wait for it to arrive!  I am thinking this might also be my new blog header.  I love it xo

I HEART Star Wars

Picnik collage star wars 2

It seems that lately all I blog about is Star Wars.  But that is my world right now.  From the time we get up in the morning to the time Ben goes to bed we seem to leave planet earth (in our X Wing) and head off on adventures to  the far away galaxies of Star Wars.  We meet all kinds of wonderful people and creatures.  This morning we met Jabba and Han Solo in carbonite!!  I do sometimes curse all that is Star Wars (especially when it is early morning, before coffee and Ben can’t find Anakin’s lego head!!).  But really I love it!  I love watching, discovering, exploring, imagining, dressing up and playing in the Star Wars world of a four year old.

So does that mean I am becoming ‘Strong with the Force’ ?

Patience {#2}

Patience –noun 1. the quality of being patient,  as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper and irritation

Well yes, I am working on being more patient.  Ben is testing Andrew and myself as all children test their parents.   He has recently begun a screaming whinge….. oh goodness it is painfully annoying!!  I count to ten, take some deep breaths and remind myself I love being a Mum before  dealing with the situation at hand!!  It is so lucky that I love him so much xoxo

A little treasure came in the mail today from Retro Vertigo….. some vintage children’s blocks that read PATIENCE.  I love them.  I have the perfect place for them too.
