: After months of brown and yellow, the rain we have been having has turned the countryside green again; and it is beautiful. The grass is growing, and we have our fingers crossed that we get a heap more rain before it gets too cold.
: I’ve been perusing photoblogs lately. I am thinking about doing a photo type blog as a collaboration. Nothing is in place yet. I don’t always have time for this one so I’m probably mad to start another. I’m loving this one called A Year Of Motherhood though. Soooo beautiful.
: Loving fresh, home made basil pesto. On everything. Stirred through pasta, or just spread thickly on good wholemeal bread, and topped with fresh picked tomatoes and a twist of salt and pepper. Yummo!
: We’ve started thinking about our renovation and extension. A few weekends back, Country Boy’s brother (who is an architect) came over and talked to us about what we wanted to do. He was instantly full of good advice, and is going to draw some plans up for us. Luckily we are flexible on design. I just need a mud room, large pantry, and big kitchen… Looking forward to the finished result, not so much the actual renovation. In the meantime I’m loving Pinterest. Probably just a little too much.
: Have you seen Made By Joel? Love the amazing modern art printables and craft ideas for kids. Keeping it in the back of my mind for the holidays.
