My sister and her husband went on an Hawaiian holiday recently and bought back almost-matching Hawaiian shirts for our brother and his dog, Mickey. A couple of days ago they decided to brave the streets together wearing them and got chased and snapped by a street style photographer! How darling is that furry little smile?
Ever since my lovely husband put in raised beds over a year ago the thrill of stepping out of the kitchen door and picking a few things for dinner has only grown. Now I even have tall, wavering sweetcorn outside the kitchen! I sometimes pet the corn leaves, and always thank the plants when I pick something from them. Nature really is amazing. The top photo is of last night's harvest for dinner. And the corn, which only a month or so ago was 20cm high, is now over one metre.
I could most certainly find a place for these in our home. The space is not the problem though. I've no idea why I signed myself up for the 1st Dibs Saturday shopping email - to torment myself? Pricing aside, it is a very good venue for defining one's style.
I just can't see it happening (and most certainly not in my case) but good on them for their ambitious plans. Lucy is busting keen to see in 2014 wide awake though so we might settle for an alarm clock at 11.50pm to watch the fireworks display from the top of the Sky Tower. Then straight back to bed.
