    Enjoying a second cup of coffee and catching up on my favourite blogs πŸ™‚

  2. My new entertainment unit which was delivered today! And the delish potato soup currently cooking for lunch. And that the kids are at school.
    That book on your pile, Past the Shallows, great read. Loved it.

    I’m also loving that doona cover above, the patchwork one…where’d you get that pray tell??

    I love the things you are loving,what an amazing veggie garden mine isn’t as good as yours a bit slower BUT it will give us some fresh tomaotoes and lettuces and strawberries.I do like the pile of books you have to read,enjoy ,beautiful Photos Beth I love them x

  4. Pausing the Homemade House frenzy to spend time with my three daughters doing something they want to do for a change, instead of constantly telling them I don’t have time right now…

  5. A lovely, full of positivity post – that is what I love. Your garden looks fabulous and you have me searching for a really fresh egg and lettuce sandwich. Mmmm.

    I’m loving the amount of words I’ve been able to pump out of my head today, on a roll and it feels good. I’m loving the beach, the salt air and freshly painted toenails.

    I am loving that I’ve found your inspiring blog (thanks to my big sis) … and, of course, your AWESOME-looking book pile πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy Secrets of the Tides/The Shadow Year. I can highly recommend Rory MacBeath and Past the Shallows – both wonderful reads.

  13. im liking that your sitting by your fire in November!

  14. I’m liking many things popping up in my garden too. My lettuce, rocket and cucmber plants are going nuts! And I just purchased a blueberry plant today so I’m excited to nurture the shit out of it.

    Please let me know what you think of the book by Emily rapp. I couldn’t decide whether to buy it the other day, not sure if I need/want to go where she has gone, it sounds like a heart breaking read !
    Today, I’m liking………my restorative yoga class. Meaning we got to lie down alot instead of the usual boot camp class !

  16. Today I liked that it felt like summer. I also liked the fact they sprayed the concrete into our new pool today – progress! I liked that I managed to snag a Country Road dress I’ve loved today and it was on sale (reduced from $179 to $99).
    Love your bed linen. That looks like a fantastic place to get a good night’s sleep. And yep, I love fresh, clean sheets too!

  17. Nadine Lillia says

    I am reading The Still Point of a Turning World now.
    Tay-Sachs is awful terrible, hideous, and devastating.

  18. I love your bedding! How do you get away with such girly (in my partner’s opinion) colours?
