A few days ago, I’d been feeling a little stressed and sleeping badly for no apparent reason, so I decided what I needed was an internet-free day back at the mothership with its garden of Zen and critters. You know what? It worked.
I’m an all-four-burners kind of person and I had been equating the excitement of getting a positive message from a magazine editor or favourite photographer with happiness and needed to get back to the ‘chilling in a chair with herbal tea’ state.
I did precisely zero work things, put a comfy chair under the plum tree (which is full of almost-ready yellow plums) and got ready to read, when I noticed two pairs of eyes in the teeny pond. We’ve got frogs!! I have called them Handsome and Charming.
I had expected all the swallows would be on their way to Africa by now but a few were still wheeling around above me and nearer the ground were at least four kinds of butterfly enjoying the buddleia.
Nosy Mog eventually wanted to see what I was doing before going ‘hunting’ (watching grass move, finding a bird by accident and freaking out)- isn’t it ridiculously cute when cats roll around on their backs on the ground!?
So after lots of tea and reading, I’m back to loving my job (the admin’s a pain but the rest rocks). And just in time too, as I was contacted about a short notice lingerie fashion show and was able to meet some of my favourite designers!
You really should have a peek at Zivity, if you aren’t on there yet- I have nearly 30 exclusive sets with excellent photographers like Pirate Photography and most recently, Steve Prue!
I can’t believe these pictures were taken in Spring- they look more Autumnal than it does outside now- and it’s September!
I’m off to the shop for something yummy for lunch.
Speak to you all soon and I hope you’re having a lovely week!
