And they're in!

After much hulabaloo getting an electrician to install my lights before Christmas, they are in.  Not a moment too soon.  And I love them.  More pics of the completed kitchen to come in the New Year.

More Dry Spell Gardening

This is my favourite Brendan Moar garden of all time.  Want!  If only he would come and design my garden.......sigh.




Landscaping Inpsiration

Isobel starts childcare two days a week in January.  Two whole days to myself?!  Jeepers.  As I have no immediate plans to go back to work, the idea is to get stuck into things around here.  I really want to sort out the mess that is our garden, I just know I could enjoy gardening if I had the time.  Maybe now I will?  Anyhow, I am starting to gather together some inspiration.....

I am starting to think about moving Isobel into a bigger bed and a bigger bedroom. She is still in a cot, and while I love that she can't escape, I guess I'll have to release her from her prison eventually. If you're going to buy a new bed, why not make it a lovely one? How about this Oeuf toddler bed, available from The Kido Store?

I bought a new rug for the kitchen/dining area today. I love, love, love Chilewich and after admiring the range for such a long time, I ducked into one of my favourite shops in Manuka, and there it was. It just had to come home with me. Woven vinyl, it's perfect for life with a little monkey. Yay!
