That was quite the hiatus I took there wasn’t it? Moving house is hard work! We spent most of last weekend moving everything to our new house and then most days after work going to the old house to clean - this weekend was spent sort of trying to get the new house unpacked, sorted and trying to relax and enjoy it.
I do generally tend to regard myself as a rather strong person, I move a lot of furniture in my job (events is really about moving a lot of furniture!) but the move on the weekend was exhausting and it’s really quite amazing how much stuff two people and one cat can have! I have millions of clothes and David is the book monster, rightly so, seeing as he’s leaving his editors job after two years to go back and do his English Masters.
These are just one of the colour combinations of daisy's we have.
Mocha up a tree on her first day out...
There are tones more, I only took a few - huge rhododendron bushes, little maple trees in nooks, roses and daisy’s galore.
Here I’m wearing black and white – you can’t really go wrong with black and white can you? Skinnys are from Glassons, White polka dot blouse is thrifted and the waist coat I got in Australia this time last year.
Before I leave you all I wanted to draw your attention to this website - the Oxfam Website. As I was ‘reading’ the Listner (quote un-quote, I tend to more just browse the titles and look at the pictures) a little brochure fell out from Oxfam about all the presents you could buy people this year for Christmas, except these gifts come with a little twist. You are actually buying gifts for those that need them in third world countries, for example, you can buy 3 ducks for $15, those ducks go to families who need them and you get a little gift card to pass on to who ever you wanted to give the gift too. You can buy something for as little as $10 and go right up to $260 (that buys you a calf!!), there are coffee plants, books, toilets, education packages, animals – if a person in a poverty stricken country needs it, you can buy it! So for all those people you can’t figure out what to buy for them (dad’s anyone?) then swing buy the website and buy something someone else can use. I’m not sure if you can use the website if you’re not from NZ but you may as well try! Ooh, and if you’re getting married you can have your wedding registry with them too!
Every post up until Christmas is going to have the website attached to it so I hope you check it out!
