Summer days = Happy Days

I'm not sure if it's because the holidays for me are getting so close I can smell them...or if it is this delightful weather. Are you mourning winter and the ability to snuggle in front of a fire? Or relishing these increasingly warm sunny days?

This house has 1 million times better insulation than our little old weatherboard, so winter and summer it's very comfortable. But I love nothing more than beautiful mornings like today, bi-folds open and pool ready for the after school swim.

This was their first swim of the season a few weeks ago.

This is where you will find me most weekends...and all holidays! I have 6 books I'm planning to read. A group of friends have started a 'facebook group book club'. Loving it.

I bought these gorgeous prints from Kerri at Driftwood Interiors last year. I was originally going to pop them in cheap frames, but decided to wait and get them done properly. DH's job this coming weekend!

 & when the chaos of this time of year starts to get to me...this is my mantra!

DH's birthday today and Connor's is Sunday. Set to be a great weekend!

Extremely Hectic...But is that the end in sight?

As my last post pointed out, I have been very slack with my blog for months now. Most days I check on everyone else's blogs and try to keep up to date with the goings on in blog land. And even though I have felt a little guilty about not updating my blog, I've been too busy to dwell on it.

One thing that has taken up a decent amount of my spare time recently is a Twilight Market Night, that along with two other wonderful mums, I've been organising for the kids school's P&C.

I am hoping for a fab night. We will have about 30 stalls, complimentary champers, lucky door prizes, canapes...fingers crossed for a great night with a big turn up. Weather isn't meant to be in our favour but...the show must go on!

Still procrastinating on some choices for around here and am looking forward to planning Christmas tables and decorations. Still running my little heart out - need to keep in shape for Fiji and now also for my sister's wedding next may.

So, although I know I've made the promise to myself before, I do plan to get back into this blog writing caper. Just know that it will be a bit more about 'stuff in general' and not all house & decorating.
