drizzle sniffle


We are having the most unseasonable weather up North. During the week it was wet and humid... I was sweating like it was January! Then today it was overcast, cool and blowing a sharp wind. The only thing that's been consistent is the rain - a persistent grey drizzle - dampening the ground and our mood.

This unpredictable and turbulent weather has resulted in lots of accidental over-dressing and under-dressing of poor Lalie and it could finally be taking it's toll.

It seems as though Lalie and I have been fighting off winter nastie's for weeks now. The early symptoms of flu keep threatening to take hold only to miraculously subside within one or two days. Let's just hope it's going to be a similar story with this fever and congestion that set in late yesterday.

Despite the drizzle and sniffle, we did manage to have a nice weekend. Zia* Kel is visiting from Sydney-Town and on Saturday we took her out for our favourites - Japanese and Gelato!

* Kel is Paddy's sister and definitely not Italian. But she does love her pasta (it's a family joke).

  8. Hopefully little Lalie is on the mend soon. It seems everyone I know here is either sick or recovering from it. Violet had croup and fever last weekend and now a runny nose this weekend. It's good to get out of the house at times like these though and that gelato sounds like a good mood lifter :)

  11. She's breaking my heart with her sweet little sleeping in the big bed! We give olive Manuka honey for colds, you could try that? Hope it passes. Kellie xx

  13. The unseasonal winter weather is here in Brisbane too, it's strange. I keep longing for our normal bright blue crisp days.

    Hope Lalie feels better very soon. x

  14. Yes it's been a long winter this year. And one that has carried lots of germs about so the news tells us. Glad your little one is mending.

    I was wondering if you would tell your readers a) whether you made the wall hanging above the bed and if so where the fabric came from?
    or b) Where did you buy it?

    It has really unusual fabric that I've not seen before and I love how its so organic and natural...But then again everything you do is absolutely wonderful.

    1. Hi Sandy, the textile hanging on the window is a vintage Indian (I think) patchwork wall hanging. I believe you can buy similar new ones at 'tree of life' stores in Australia or lots of asian import stores.
