Good morning, how the devil are you ladies and gents of Beach Cottage Land???
Some pics from my phone from the past week, the school holidays in Sydney is treating me very well I must say…
I’ve been hanging out with my kiddos and doing not much else – I needed to take a break, some time off to re-charge, get some downtime and think…amazing how it works!
We’ve been to the beach most days, in fact every day, had play dates, been on walks, found jobs, de-cluttered, drank lemonade, been to the cinema, sat with books in the sunshine, cooked roast dinners, had long long daytime baths, downloaded BBC shows, picked flowers, packed picnics, had sleepovers, gardened, lounged on sunbeds, gathered oranges, made smoothies and just re-charged and somehow in this busy cottage I’ve found perspective. It was missing.
I love being out and about in nature, by the sea, in the sunshine and that soul cup I was talking about, well I know how to get some perspective and fill mine.
And with that a new little theme is born in Beach Cottage Land and I’ll be getting some perspective weekly here…
p.s. sorry about the text, I am STILL having new problems every day with this site but the good news is that I have a lovely girl helping me out and very very soon, things will work without a glitch.
p.p. s in cottage news, we are back in the white floored bedroom, but I am planning changing lots of things out in there (and some new bedding is on the way, cos I really needed more linen in my life, do not tell my husband), there is trip to the Swedish Boutique involved and kitchen plans are slowly coming together though still awaiting a wall being knocked down…who knew tradies were so hard to come by?
This week I am on de-clutter mission, when I did this a while ago on this here blog I formatted a little system to knock clutter down and out in 7 days – I did a Beach Cottage Real Girl style hit and run DIY version of those organising sites that give you downloads to get your house in order that send shivers down your spine….amazingly it worked really really well, chunking it down into days worked for me – so be careful if you drop by this ratty old cottage in the next few days for a pot of tea – if you are not white and vintage or plastered in nautical stripes then you’ll be swiftly popped in the box marked Vinnies ;-)
