Don't you love it when your crochet skills can help your son who is about to go off to a kayaking camp. Now he can take his own kayak. Poor, poor boy.

Just a little note to say that we are safe and sound in New Zealand and that our neck of the woods has managed to escape the wrath of Cyclone Pam. Wet and windy but no different from a winter's day. Thinking of everyone in Vanuatu. It is such a beautiful place and I have been lucky enough to go there a couple of times. Heart breaking to think of all the devastation wrought.
In the meantime, we are going to snuggle up with hot water bottles and appreciate how fortunate we are that Pam didn't decide to too close to us.
Lots of love,

Every now and then in life we are presented with the a conundrum. This piece of vintage lace is almost too beautiful to use and yet too beautiful not to use. I think a crafty monk could spend years meditating over such an intricate and difficult problem.
By the way, before anybody jumps to the conclusion that my life must be very straight forward and simple, I have to admit I am being a little tongue in cheek. But you know where I am coming from!

We are firmly smack dab in the birthday season again. Hugo turned 9 yesterday. NINE! What happened.
Hugo had a couple of friends come over for afternoon tea and of course lots of lovely family and we ate 'Egg Cake' aka, chocolate cake with crispy chocolate eggs on top.
And lashings of ginger beer.
And something a little different for the adults. Oh Monday afternoon - if only every Monday could be as wonderful.
Even though Autumn has crept up on us, it was a decidedly Summer's day.
This is Hugo when he was a little boy.
This is Hugo now he is big. Off on one of his farm adventures.
Lots and lots of love,
