Nice things

Today was a good day, I feel that nice tired like I will sleep sound fully. There was .....
Yoga followed by bagels with cream cheese and lemon curd with a spirulina and apple juice, minus the cream cheese and lemon curd I feel virtuous just writing this .

Cleaned the whole house, bought a new washing machine to get through the shoulder high washing pile that has accumulated following the passing of our other washing machine a week ago. Made afgahn biscuits. Was gifted a beautiful rimu chopping board and some popping corn still attached to the corn.

Walked harper with a friend, stopped midway for hot chips with loads of vinegar (possibly may have lost virtue of spirulina and yoga), made the bed with the loveliest flannel sheets.

Made the bathroom look pretty and now I am sitting down to a feast of feijoas from our tree, a glass of milk and an afghan, these things make me happy.

2011 was a massive year, we got married and we bought a house. Two very big commitments. When I look back it seems like 2011 could have been ten years all in one.

When I think ahead for 2012 my biggest want is for some plain old normality and appreciation of the small but wonderful things in life. I have always struggled with an inability to ever be happy with my accomplishments and the hand I have been dealt in life. I am a perfectionist and my aim this year is to make do, and to let go more so that I can soak up more of what is already so good around me.

Coming back here I think will help as it makes me take time out to reflect.

Just for the sake of some pictures here is a bag I made for a friends birthday and a little blanket for a friends new baby.

Wedding Bells

It was the most perfect happy day. So much love and support from the people we love. It could not have been better. Just a few photos here. Our amazing photographer Candy Capco did an amazing job capturing the day for us.

Fitting it all in

Afghan biscuits, they look so pretty in the tin. It is hard to fit everything in to one day, work leaves me with not much energy.
Making something that looks pretty, gives me some energy back.
