A few of my favourite things..


There’s one thing that I am besotted with at the moment, and that’s flowers. Specifically, roses from the garden that I’ve rescued from the heavy rain storms that we’ve had over the past week. After a long busy day, when Frey is asleep and its still so light outside, I’ve been going out and taking some cuttings. They’re dotted all around my bedroom now – in hard to reach places so they don’t get eaten by a little person! I love them..

I’m attempting to dry some of the petals, as they’re so short lived and so incredibly beautiful. I’ve been drying them on kitchen towel on trays, so we’ll see how we get on. It would be lovely to still have some of these petals in the depths of winter.
