beach cottage light
Mon 10th, Nov, 2014
Good morning beach cottage lovely ladies of the web (wonder if we still have the lovely guy from the Netherlands out there too, hope so), well it’s Monday morning here, I am doing a bit of work and a bit of pottering and I am eyeing up the hammock for an arvo nap before the school run – is it in the job description to sink into a hammock and snooze on a Monday afternoon? Not sure but I am including it in my contract right now ;)
We’ve had a good weekend here with an afternoon on the beach yesterday and lovely weather (pics on my Instagram if you want to see the view from under my beach umbrella)…talking of snoozes my lovely husband took the newspaper and a book to the beach and promptly plonked down, laid down and had a nap – I love seeing people asleep on the beach…good re-charging for a hectic work week I reckon.
In other news I’ve struck gold in vintage thrifting – a trunk and a farmhouse table, well I guess we would be calling it a coastal farmhouse ;) – if I can take myself away from the hammock I’ll show you some pics soon.
The light here is beautiful at the moment, just on the edge of the super powerful Aussie Summer light, but still a bit hazy – although I’ve been here long enough now and am very very proud to call myself an Australian Citizen I still go outside at this time of the year (or walk into the family room and see the light streaming in) and thank my lucky stars at what this time of year brings, though sometimes I reckon it’s not about where you are in the world, just more about getting outside, taking it in, sticking up two fingers to the bad things and being grateful for the good…a bit fluffy but oh so true.
