Howdy partners. All well here, long, hot, sunkissed, days. Boy am I enjoying the school holidays.
I can honestly say that this is the first year, since we had our third child that the school hols have been too easy. Not that they weren't easy before, more that now we seem to have reached an equilibrium…the little one is now old enough to not be so little, the teenager is pretty much so laid back that anything goes anyway and the female in the middle seems to not really care all that much about too much.
Which leaves me, to get up late, not have to worry about taxi-driving, no school things to do and time to just hang out in the sun.
And that's what I love about Australian life.
What more, really, can one mother-of-three ask for in life?
She emailed me to say did I know that Paddy Hintz of the Courier Mail in Queensland had featured me?
No I did not, I don't get my hands on that publication too often…
I tell you what though, Paddy Hintz (no it is not the name of some funny old Irish guy) seems, very much, like my kinda gal...
I mean, she wrote that I am and she loves, and I quote 'a shopper on the cheap', that I am 'not afraid to admit my bargain hunting ways' (are people really afraid of that?) and that I am a 'very generous soul' (I really hope Mr BC does not read that lol!)
What's more, quite on the ball, I think this Ms Hintz may well be…:-)
'I really like this one because most of it is all the bloggersí own work.
Instead of cannibalising the interior decor publishing industry by reprinting images from her favourite decor magazine'
bring it on Paddy, couldn't have put it better meself ;-)
Ok, I'm signing off for now, I'm working on a cheap as chips makeover of an old frame…involves black paint, lots of lettering and a trip to Vinnies, hee hee!
