Hello to you. I’ve been taking random pictures around my home and enjoying the changes of light throughout the day. Does it sound like I’ve been stuck indoors? Why yes, I have! I’ve been waiting for a postcard delivery, which keeps teasing me into thinking it’s coming (including the online tracking service telling me that it is ‘in transit!’) but it still hasn’t arrived. I wasted a whole day yesterday, just waiting at home - mad is an understatement. It’s not fun when you have a two year old who needs to be outside! Hopefully they will arrive today and then all will be well in Kerryland!

In other news, we have been enjoying Rachel Khoo’s new series 'Little Paris Kitchen' on BBC1. I bought her book (she’s a pretty maid isn’t she?), which is quite amusing seeing as I don’t even cook! I’m hoping (as is my husband), that it might inspire me into having a go. We shall see; it’s a lovely book regardless. Plus, we have a very small kitchen, so it’s inspiring to watch her cooking up all sorts of delicious things in such a teeny-tiny space.

  14. Loving the elephant on the polka dots – and the shocked/surprised card :) Not seen the show yet but everyone keeps mentioning it... will have to try! P.S. Kerryland sounds like it should be a very designy amusement park! ;)

    1. Ah thanks :) That’s a Sandra Juto print. Try and watch the show if you can - we only ever watch it on iplayer! I love your optimism about Kerryland! Ha, I don’t think people would have much fun in my miserable amusement park!!
