Things I like {The 23rd November 2015 edition}

With an aching tooth and my mind (and tongue) obsessed with it and everything that will have to be done with it I thought I better focus on some good this afternoon. Here’s some things to like…

: Clove oil. Who would have thought? Seems so medieval


: Roses inside and out, gorgeous things that they are

: Speaking of out, the garden is going gang busters. Especially all those trees we planted last year

: Harper is right, trees are awesome


: Star jasmine is getting ready to bloom…another week and we will be there.

: Little whimsy around the house always brings a smile to my face.


: I rediscovered a flip book that was given to Daisy when she was a baby…the girls love it.

: Hydrangeas are going mad outside too in all this hot weather (I did get a few burnt leaves). I love the plain leaves inside for a burst of greenery

: Also loving the kangaroo paws that I picked from Mrs Munro’s farm last week on the kitchen bench


: Brand spanking new Frankie 4 shoes (gifted) to me will always bring a smile to my face. These are called Belinda and I cannot wait to get them on my trotters.


: Piles of fresh washing to be put away…especially not sheets (no, I do not iron them, life is too short)


: White geraniums are my fave


: As is the succulent wreath that I made last year that is still going strong


: Speaking of things made…I was sent a Goodie Box from Blank Goods filled with the most gorgeous selection of things to make. Maybe with the kids, maybe just by myself.  Great Christmas present (you can get a subscription)

  4. With the recent world events, it is refreshing to come to your blog and be reminded that life goes on, we must go on and make the most of it while we can, and we are so lucky to live where we live and have access to all we do: great communities is one of them, safe places to live.
    Thanks, you remind me to focus on family and the life around me.
    And yes, clove oil is also good for mould removal too…( Check out Shannon lush (you probably already know that..)

  5. Oil of cloves, great stuff. A few drops into water and wiped over window frames etc stops mould growing. A problem in our old house during winter. I love the smell too, reminds me of christmas!
