Things I like {The 17th September 2014 edition}

Being home. Fancy hotels and time alone with your partner is VERY special, but there’s no place like it. I feel more like me when we are all together than any other time.


Freshly planted pots thanks to Mum who stayed on the weekend with the girls. THANK YOU MUM!

Flowers around the house. Those Daisies just keep on giving.

Piles of books that are being read constantly.




Lemons. Lots of lemons! I see some kind of pie or tart coming our way.


People from the village dropping off puppy training guides for us. Thank you so much Deb!


Spring garden springing! Hellebores still going strong, and tulips popping up!

And the last delivery of wood for the year. Yes, this will see us through.


What are you liking this fine Wednesday?


  1. Lemon butter. You need to make it. So easy and it is absolutely delicious on toast. Also great for cake fillings and tart shells. Tastes like spring to me. My Mum has been keeping me in an abundance of lemons because her tree is full and I have been keeping the whole family in an abundance of lemon butter because it is so easy and so good! Lemon delicious pudding is also awesome.

  2. Frank is just adorable. SO CUTE! And I am impressed at how many flowers you obviously can keep alive…my skills leave a lot to be desired!
    Right now I’m liking a quiet morning to write and peruse while the Little Mister plays, the sunshine, and losing my first kilo since making an effort to look after myself better.

  3. FRANK! Oh what a smoosh. Prepare for your hearts to explode into a million pieces every single time he does something cute…and prepare to say “oh but he’s only a puppy” every single time he does a wee or poop on your floor. I love Frank already! x

  4. I’m liking the first signs of summer up here Beth – sunshine, storms and snakes – no more firewood required here!

  5. Lisa Mckenzie says

    Frank is adorable and your garden is so pretty.I am liking the spring weather we have been having Xx

  6. Frank is the best. What kind of dog is he Beth? And where from? I’m gearing up to getting on myself soon.

  7. Those little blue almost bell-shape flowers, what are they? They were my FAV flowers as a kid growing up in NZ, brings back memories. I hope puppy isn’t keeping you awake at all hours x

  8. Puppies are the best!! We have a cavoodle and she is awesome, I am sure Frank will be awesome too! Take lots of photos, he will grow up FAST! And I don’t care what ppl say, toilet training takes mofo forever, bs they get it by 3 months! Get yourself some biozet or natures miracle to clean up, and be vigilant! Can’t wait to see more puppy photos! X

  9. No worries Beth 🙂 hope it’s useful xxx can’t wait to meet the little fella.


  1. […] final straw to motivate me was last seeing this post last week here Of Babymac’s, that really got me wanting to do something with some plants and flowers. Gosh […]
