Join me for a Cuppa….



Join me for a coffee–go boil that kettle and make

yourself comfortable.

It’s cloudy, cold and raining here….

it has been like this since

Saturday morning.

So it is another lazy day at home!!

If you were really joining me for a coffee I am just busting to share some veggie patch news.  Take a look……


I’m so excited  – our first tomato nearly ready to pick….YAY!!

I’d also share that I think I have recovered from Ben’s forth birthday party.  Lots of little children inside on a rainy day….. not sure what I was thinking!!  But Ben got a lovely present from his Aunty Andrea – a globe.  This is how I found my boys the other night before Ben went to bed.  Ben was looking for ‘my Australia – cose that is where we live’.


Finally I would ask you if you had a spare weekend.  I have a fabulous room in my house that has been left as a bit of a junk room since we moved in over a year ago.  I have decided to make it my ‘Creative Space’ – my sewing room.  Here is what it looks like now…. oh dear!!


I have tables to paint, bunting to hang and material to sort…… oh and find homes for all the junk and treasures that are sitting in the room already!!  Any volunteers to help….hehehh?

Better get going and do the laundry…. but I did see this today to brighten the laundry!!  Thanks for stopping by while I had my coffee.

Oh Dear….. and YAY!!!

GardenOH DEAR….. our little vegetable patch has seen better days.  Something is eating our radishes.  Our zucchinis and pumpkin have a ‘damp fungus’ and our beans look very sick.  I clipped leaves off all of these plants and headed to our local nursary for a little help.  Luckily nothing is very serious and all can be fixed with a little love and care.  So with a few sprays and powders  (natural of course) things should be back on track.

On a more exciting note ….. when I was watering the garden this evening I noticed WE HAVE TOMATOES……YAY!!!  Ben wanted to pick them then and there.  I think I convinced him that we need to wait until they change colour to red.  I hope it happens quickly as he is busting and so am I.  Home grown tomato on toast……  memories from my childhood xoxo.
