This week I have been mainly washing clothes. We are back from camping and the smell of the camp fire lingered on everything. In it all it means that I have not been out and about as much. Over the last few weeks I have been taking stock and processing some changes. I am currently reading Love Wins by Rob Bell and it has given me much food for thought. Both R and I are putting in place what we are learning, letting go and not buying things. This year we are planning on opening our home to those who we have nothing in common with, too often we surround ourselves with like minded friends. R and I have slashed our spending and are thinking of ways to reduce waste. Please stick with me on the journey as I learn and think about how I make others feel.

Green Fingers

Last week R and I bought a few herbs and plants for our little corner area. We were busy planting the long awaited herbs. I was particularly taken with the pink Dahlia that I picked up from our local green grocer.
ps. Listening to the new friendly fires album and loving the galvanised tub I picked up from a car boot sale.

I grew up in a separate home to my siblings, I hardly see them, know them or feel connected to them. Our girls, play, dance, sing, splash, draw, fight, cry and cuddle together. I am fascinated by their bond. What they share and grow in may not be my personal experience, but learning so much about family/siblings/sisters through our girls.

Kitchen Corner

Over the weekend I have been playing silly beggars with a lomo studio app. Here is a shot of our kitchen corner. This weekend, we had fun at the school fete, visiting Brighton and I'm back for another term at Safehaven. As for that song competition it was completely of my radar until a friend mentioned that the UK entry came 11th??

Collecting Images

My blog has been neglected in the light of Pinterest, I love pinning images. It allows me to waste time on virtual mood boards which saves money and space by not buying magazines and finding somewhere to store them. I have been trying not to neglect taking photos and have been snapping away with the Nikon and my old Canon. Random shots, but very special moments....even the red onions had my youngest involving in arranging them.

The sun is shinning and I have not been tempted to venture out. Instead chores are getting done, eating blueberries, planning a mini break and listening to the fantastic Agnes Obel.

Seated at the Street Party

R wanted me to put this one in too, as he loves the collection of our neighbours. Glorious day, roll on next year!

Street Party

Friday 29th April- we made the most of the long weekend courtesy of Will and Kate and kick started it with a Street Party. Loved seeing young and old finding things in common, the children running up and down and in and out of houses, and loving the sense of community and celebration.
