This week is all out of whack as I had off Thursday and Friday, then when I tried to upload my week in pics yesterday it wouldn’t work. So I’m a day late, but here it is!

This week I wrote about:

And on to the week in pics…

Lionel caught a lizard, so we got him a name tag and tried to find a bell. Really hard to find a bell that isn't coloured or shaped like some kind of cartoon character. Then I found this collar, with a bell, for $4. Just cut the bell off it!

It’s been a week of ups and downs… That’s a lie, it’s been a week mostly of downs. So, even though it’s out of chronological order, my first pic will be the flowers at the cafe this morning.

I’ll admit it – I’ve neglected you, my little blog. I’m sorry. I really am! I’ve just been so flat out with work, home and my other website, KiKi & Tea, that I’ve forgotten about you a little bit. Can we still be friends?

Lately I am loving reading blogs about other people’s lives. I love reading about opinions, and have spent many a moment reading articles about real issues, but sometimes it’s nice to switch off and admire someone else’s life for a moment. Particularly people who have really pretty, stylish, lives. With their super organised kids, their fun activities and their clean homes. At the moment I’m particularly in love with this brand new blog by my (online – although I hate making that distinction because online is just as real) friend Karen who recently lost 22kg (I know! Amazing, right?) and who has such a beautiful, happy, organised life.

One of my other favourites is Thrify Decor Chick which makes me believe I, too, could be a fantastically talented thrifty decor chick and build window seats and crap if only I applied myself… but instead I will lie on the couch with my arm trapped by a cat who is overexcited about receiving attention (even if that attention is just me moving her slightly so I can still reach my keyboard) and feel guilty that I’m not applying myself in a more meaningful way to filling my house will all the organisational tools created by Kikki.K and planning out every single detail of my day.

I have to admit, I love these blogs for the ideas they give me, but it’s more than that. I love them because it’s like looking at life porn. Continue reading »

Husband takes artistic photos

This Thursday, I love… coffee!

I can’t believe I’ve gotten this far without writing this one before! Amazing! I love my coffee. I love it because it’s social, it’s warm, it’s comforting. There’s something about coffee, and I’m perfectly aware this is most probably entirely in my head, that just makes me able to face the day.

Every weekend, Husband and I go out for breakfast. There’s something about the ritual of going to a cafe, getting a coffee and some breakfast, that is soothing to the soul. We started doing it right after we bought our house, and going out for dinner was out of the equation. Breakfast provided us with the ability to go out for a meal, spend some time in each other’s company, ease into the day, and enjoy ourselves without being out of pocket too much (especially if you just get coffee and toast).
