In the palm of her hands…

Miss I is missing our old hometown desperately.

She misses her friends,

her school,

her grandparents,

her trampoline,

her garden,

her room,

her home….

We’ve been trying to spend some time with my sister and her daughter to provide the extra family-time Miss I is accustomed to. She was hanging out at her aunty’s and playing with pegs and came up with this:


Pretty cool I reckon! (iPhone qual)

Perhaps she could have warned British Airways and KLM that another volcano was about to go??

Anyway, I will be trying to get her bedroom in our rental a bit more “done” in the coming weeks, to help her settle in better. Here are some inspiration shots:

A little bit of storm, a little bit of sun…

I am just so loving this photograph by Magnus Anesund:

The teal and orange with that hit of red in the corner is rocking my boat today. And I would love to just pile up my books like that – rainbow colour-coded shelves be damned! lol

What’s rocking your world today?
