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!



  1. The prints look great, Kylie, and will look fab on your walls.

    I spent an hour in our pool this afternoon - absolutely unheard of! The kids are in there constantly of course, but I have to be in the mood.

    Enjoy the birthday festivities!


  2. That bamboo has shot up so much from those tiny little plants you had in last year. I can also smell the holidays. We have put in a pool now as well - just finished last week and we are loving it. Enjoy those holidays that are coming up really quickly - I can't wait.
