318-323/365 'Life this week'

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone. How has your week been? I've had my oldest home for the last couple of days unwell, she's feeling much better today though which is good as exams are starting tomorrow. I bought myself some peonies when I went grocery shopping Monday, one day though I'd like to grow my own flowers. It has been so dry here lately, the sky was dark and grey today, there was thunder but hardly a drop fell here.  I am really missing the green grass, I'm hoping we get enough rain to green things up in time for Christmas. I have plants waiting for me to put into the garden, thankfully they are still alive, I am watering them at least. There's been a bit of crafting going on lately.  I've started my Christmas cards, not quite sure about the design yet I think I need to change it up a bit, it's looking a little too clean and simple... There's been some Christmas making too, another little bag for my friends daughter and a little handmade gift for my girl.  On her Christmas list she has requested a handmade gift from me, she is so cute.  There's been lots of relaxing too with homework done for Miss 10, so she has been reading up a storm.
If you are after some inspiration for dinner I made this Pumpkin, Lemon and Broccoli Risotto, it's super yummy.
Enjoy the rest of your week. 


  1. I do hope you get some rain is so much nicer.
    We are on the fast and furious run to the end of the school year.....right now we wonder if we are all going to make it with our sanity in place......glad there is some lovely time to read and craft and hopefully healing of sick ones. Xxxxxxx

  2. I hope that the rest of your week is good too. xx

  3. We've had to resort to putting the sprinkler on the lawn to keep it green. I hope it rains- at your place and ours.
    I love the deign of the Christmas cards.. maybe a stripe of colourful washi tape near the bottom or some glitter to the ornaments.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.x

  4. Those little crochet bags get me every time...they are soooo cute. Hope she is on the mend soon...just a little bit longer then the big summer holidays are here. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

  5. I love your photos Catherine! Lots of homemade and handmade goodness! It is the best. xo

  6. Those flowers are beautiful, but your images of them are something else - divine!! I love that your girl asked for a handmade gift - that is so precious. Hope the rest of your week has been lovely xx

  7. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


  8. Those flowers are beautiful! Lots of lovely things happening your way (apart from the lack of rain). How gorgeous your little miss wants you to make her a gift :) I'm hoping to make Sophie a baby carrier for her doll :)


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment on my blog I really appreciate each and every comment I read. Have a lovely day. x
