Weekend reading

3 June 2016
June already!  Time moves so fast for me now. I remember when a week felt like a month, now time goes in the blink of an eye. We're getting ready to renovate our bathroom and while we're not doing the work, we've done the planning and this week we bought many of the materials. We're aiming at being as thrifty as we can be and our plan is to have everything on hand, the flat packs made up and for the workmen to come in and do the physical work.  Well, that's the plan. Stay tuned for updates.


If you live in SE Queensland, it looks like being a week of wild weather ahead.  Let's batten down the hatches and stay safe. Wherever you are in the world I hope you have a lovely weekend, doing something you love.  I'll see you next week. ♥︎
