This week I am grateful for...

This week I am grateful for...

1. School Holidays - I love the sleep-ins, all the laughter in the house. Everything feels more relaxed, no homework and no school traffic to drive in. My children have one more week to go before they go back (3 weeks in total).

2. Google - Seriously don't know what I would do without google. When spell check, can't figure out what word I am trying to spell, google always can!

3. Blogging - I seem to have my blogging mo-jo back! I have posted lots this week, and I had forgotten good it feels. I'm loving it xo

Playing along with Maxabella loves read more awesome grateful posts here !

Warm Bodies

I have just finished reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. And I enjoyed it immensely! I have never read anything quite like this before. I have always liked watching zombie movies. The un-dead walking, eating brains fascinates me. I’m a bit weird, I know! 

This is the first zombie book I have ever read, I’ve been stuck in vampire worlds so long. It was a nice to step out of my vamp comfort zone and try something new.  It was rather funny in spots, I found myself smiling while reading it. The characters are lovable; Zombie R and Julie, no doubt will stay with me even though I have finished the book. I am like that; seem to mourn after reading a really good book. 

Warm Bodies was creepy in places, but one of the sweetest stories I have ever read.

Winter Garden

Our winter garden is looking a little bare,
 most of the leaves have fallen of the trees.

We have large piles of decomposing autumn leaves everywhere,
I could sweep them up, but I kinda like them.

Hot pink flowers are starting to bloom,
they make my heart sing.

The rosemary bush has the prettiest little
 purple flowers,

& I still walk around bare foot in winter,
which is crazy because it's so cold outside.

I love my little girl, 
she is such a crack up,
full of personality,
and beans

I see so much of myself in her,
all the good bits,
I love watching her grow,
I'm one lucky mama.

shopping trip

After making hair clip orders all morning, I stepped outside wearing my favourite scarf.  I have had this scarf for many years, it warm, soft and chuck, I love it.

My beautiful sister Megan, had the day off work so she came around to visit this afternoon. She had the fantastic idea to go shopping, taking all three kids with us. We end up in Spotlight (craft store) buying gorgeous Dupioni silk so that I can make some rolled fabric flowers. I can easily spend hours in Spotlight, and always come out with more creative ideas in my head.

Over the last few years, I have been making my sister one of a kind headbands. When she wears them out, she gets stopped by strangers asking her were she got her headband. Megan has been trying to talk me into making a women's range for a little now. She was very insistent that I gather supplies and make some designs and put them on my website so that her friends have a place to buy them.

Poor Phoenix missed out on having his picture taken. Has has developed the very bad habit of running off when ever I take my iPhone out before I can snap a shot. But here are my girls, Alex and Skye. Megan and I were exhausted after our little shopping trip. Having three kids with you, seems to make you more tired than if you went shopping alone.
