The bowl needs to get bigger as the lemon tree is turning lovely lemons over to me everyday.

Her new blanket

My mother gave Rebecca this blanket that she made for her.  Rebecca loves it so much. Is there a more special gift? I think not.

Light the fire

Ryan, my awesome brother-in-law braaied for us this past weekend... it was so good!! Then we watched a movie and in the last 15 minutes the lights went out so we went back outside and revived the fire.  We then had tea and smores! Yum

Forthright Ella

The arty lady fingered her long necklace and looked pained.
'There's nothing here that would stand up to a week's use.' proclaimed Ella forthrightly.  'Look at this object!' What is it anyway?'
'It's a hair-tidy,' quavered the arty lady.
'A hair tidy?' boomed Ella, much as Lady Bracknell declaimed: 'A handbag?'
'Who the hell ever uses a hair tidy? demanded Ella.
But her victim had fluttered away to attend a less difficult customer choosing joss-sticks, and Ella made her way home determined to look out the cane and fashion something really worthwhile.

Marques De Riscal

This is where Wayne stayed last week in Spain.  He loves modern design as well as this beautiful region, so this unusual design hit the spot.

Herbal tea

I am an avid coffee drinker but over the last two months I have been drinking more and more herbal tea... I am now addicted.

My favourites...

We had a great mothers day yesterday.
