Good Life Weds Beach Cottage Coastal Lavender for Beach Decor
Wed 8th, Feb, 2012
Oh! G’day Beach Cottage friends, fancy meeting you here ;-)
I am writing this post from the beach, I am sitting by the ocean, the sky is a white grey, the waves are big and the air is fresh. I wish you could smell it.
I am here waiting for one of the Beach Cottage Crew to come out of the surf…this gives a whole other meaning to ferrying kiddos around for their activities, I am not sitting in a rainy grey carpark in the depths of old Blighty while by kiddos run around indoors, I am sitting by the sea listening to the roar of those waves. Baby.
So thanks to technology I am on my blog too…yep this iPad has about changed my life…we all knew it was going to.
There are few things I like more than doing the blog thing and sitting listening to the sounds of the ocean.
This then really is the ultimate Beach Cottage Blogging By the Sea.
But, it’s not all roses around here at the mo’.
At home this afternoon I took some time to clean in our bedroom, you see we are having a few problems.
For one reason or another we are having a few issues in the sleep department, I tell you what we might as well have a couple of newborns in the house.
And so today, I cleaned, changed the bed and went out in the garden and picked masses of lavender and put it all over the house, in a hope to calm and soothe.
If that doesn’t work, there is a broomstick in the cupboard that is getting a little twitchy.
I have always been a person who needs a shed-load of sleep, I only wish I could be one of those people who gets by on 5 hours, that has never and will never happen to me, I like nine hours to function and ten to feel fantastic…but right now it’s about seven…in broken stints.
Mr Beach Cottage’s snoring is one issue. I won’t go into it on here. You might be here for too long.
It was good to foof in here though because it got me thinking of our next projects and what I am going to do…that would be our bedroom, sitting room, breakfast room and driveway…all next on the list for a new look…the driveway is mega-boring, who wants to spend 15,000 on a drive? Not me.
But the bedroom, a bit more interested in that. Once the bathroom is finished and the Summer House is painted (more on that to come), we are giving our bedroom some new paint…plus some new furniture…I have been scouring the beaches for old vintage stuff and have found some new paint to try…it’s not Dulux ;-) …I haven’t painted anything for a while…it’s time, I am really looking forward to getting stuck into it and on the lookout for a big old chest of drawers to give a new look to…
So that is it for me this lovely day, I hope you enjoy Good Life Wednesday…apologies for last week, wow that Linky thing was a disaster! Hopefully all back to good this week, oh and the spider bite? All healed and done. Amazing how the human body works isn’t it?
Ladies, if you have any sleep help for me, including but not limited to bashing your husband on the head with a whitewashed vintage oar, I’d love you to leave me some advice in the comments…
Be seeing ya lovely Beach Cottage Ladies.
