Birthday treats from my sister. She didn't know that I love Orla Kiely- but thought the patterns were very Retro and that I would love them. So very right. I'm going to pop these on my sewing table for storing buttons and threads. Too good to store leftovers in I think?!
Flowers that last - Mr H delivered these to me last Friday and they are still going strong........
Favourite breakfast at the moment. Avocado and tomato on Vogel's toast with sea salt and cracked pepper. Washed down with an almighty mug of sugary sweet tea.
Tom sat these two together on the chair in my room and covered them with a scarf. Love seeing this gentle side to boys, instead of throwing them around the room. "They can be friends, mum".
You may have seen the portrait of my three for week nine of the Portrait Project here. This is where we had our tea Saturday night. On the first day of Autumn. There was a very cool sea breeze blowing but the light was glorious.
This week was the first time I have not had to pop a carton of eggs in with the groceries. At the moment we are getting an egg or two a day from our bantams. We currently have four ladies, and am hoping to add another two. I love being able to hear them clucking about as they fossick around in the grass. They are funny things, and there is most definitely a bossy one in the mix and that would be Betty. I think her name suits her.

Movie night - I bought Pride and Prejudice over a week ago and finally got to watch it last night. After much eye rolling and commentary from Mr H he sat at his laptop and popped his ear plugs in. Amy I thought of you when Basildon House was featured - lucky you for being able to work there.
Tonight Bell and I are going to watch Beaches (insert rolling of eyes here), eat chocolate and hopefully enjoy the movie in peace and quiet! Love a girls movie night.
