Okeydoke, here we go. Sitting here typing away. Two cats sitting on the floor looking at me like, well they are looking kind of concerned. I have bulging cheeks. And there is a strange noise coming from my mouth. I am oil pulling. Soooo, have you ever heard of oil pulling (not that kind, out… Continue reading Mouthful Of Oil Anyone?
What I see when I look out my window: Brown grass that crunches under foot (could do with some rain) weeds (could do with a gardener!) beautiful wrens (these beautiful wrens are fascinated by seeing themselves in the mirror of my car, this explains the poop in the side of my car...) double bar finches… Continue reading Eye Spy

Easy: How To Make Butter Tutorial
I was very lucky after Christmas and the local supermarket had marked down lots of units of cream. So I bought about 5 large (600ml) containers. I didn't have a clue what I was going to do with all that cream, but it was Christmas/New Year and we were having guests and some nice dinners. … Continue reading Easy: How To Make Butter Tutorial

A koala, you don't see koala's everyday..but when you do they are so bloody cute! I wouldn't pick one up though, have you seen their claws? I am very lucky to live where I live.

DIY Bed Skirt.
Something that has really annoyed me for the last 20 years or so is that whenever I walk into my room I can see under my bed. And of course I store things like bags of clothes, photo albums, documents etc etc under my bed. But I just had enough of looking at that shit… Continue reading DIY Bed Skirt.
Sweet Cottage Cuteness.
Tiny houses...easy to clean, quick to tidy, no clutter (cause there is no room), sounds dreamy to me...but idealy, I would love to have a big old cottage type of house with a tiny little cottage arts and crafts studio out the back of my non-existent house, over looking my non-existent rolling hills and my… Continue reading Sweet Cottage Cuteness.

Look At Books.
This weekend...find a good book, grab a coffee, chocolate and a blankie and read. Sounds like a great idea doesn't it? I just need to finish the housework, and cooking, need to do a bit of gardening, organise the garage and start a really large illustration, but as soon as I've finished all of that,… Continue reading Look At Books.

You are not normal!
When I grew up I didn't think I was a normal girl. But I believe all people must think that at one point or another or all the time. I could throw a base ball like a boy. And almost take their heads off. I could hit a golf ball like a crazy person, straight up the… Continue reading You are not normal!
“If not now, when?”
So I don't have any cute little toddlers to take photos of; I have found it quite difficult to get an 18 year old and a 15 year old to participate in cute finger painting photos for my blog. Really? Yes Really. And I don't have an abnormally fantastic and shabby chic kinda house; one… Continue reading “If not now, when?”
