Too many tomatoes!

Hello everyone. As we are heading to Coffs Harbour on Friday for two weeks I thought I had better do something with all of these tomatoes or they will go to waste. This morning I peeled and chopped a dozen and popped them into these little containers for the freezer to look after!

The last week or so we have had beautiful fine autumn weather and yesterday the rain arrived. I measured 23mm this morning - the plants would have loved that soaking! It's now clear and sunny which is so nice. I am off to Ararat this afternoon for a facial and grocery shopping.

I hope all is well with you. C ♥

Magazine heaven

Hello there! I'm not sure if you know but I am a huge magazine fiend. I collect them, display them and adore them. They are a great source of inspiration for me in a lot of facets of my life. One of my stress relievers is to sit down and flick through a mag. If I had to pick a favourite it would be Notebook: but I will have to re-read my issues (I have all 63) as sadly it closed late last year. Real Living, Home Beautiful, House & Garden, Madison, Marie Claire, Instyle... ahhh! The latest Country Style is out and once again has some great articles and home decorating. I have also recently discovered online magazines and although I don't like them as much as the real thing they still have a lot of appeal. Have a look at this beautiful issue of Adore Home. Hope all is well in your part of the world. Bye for now, C ♥
