hello sunshine!
It's been so grey and wet over the past week,  I thought we'd never see the sun again!  Perfect weather to get out for a walk and relish in the outdoors.  What a great end to the school holidays. Happy weekend!

the writer's edition: month 15 check-in
Since last month's check-in , my word count has dropped below 60,000 words, climbed to 75,000 and is now sitting around 74,000 - such is the nature of editing.  I can feel my work strengthening from all the cuts and feel really pleased with where I'm going....

school holiday activities at home: indoor games
When I was a little girl we had a house at the beach - I filled the many hours of school holidays with card games, largely taught to me by our neighbours.  They were brothers - related to us through our dad - who played a grandfatherly role in our lives.  K...

When I answered Tom's SOS to help find the Lego police van door yesterday, I realised it was time for drastic action.  Time to clean up those bookshelves, pick the pencils up from under the desk and sort out the school bag an...

Stonefruit season is our favourite: forerunner to Christmas and housefuls of giggling cousins.  Writer, photographer, handmaker and baker - this is my place to share it all with you.  Join my family of five as we navigate through the seasons, one day at a time.
stonefruit season's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
