I sometimes worry about Michael out at sea and hope the ocean and weather are being kind to him, well here's the proof. Apparently it's a Dolphin Fish, it's so strange and alien like. Not sure if it's good eating but well done hun, now get back to work. x x

Heavenly Creatures is stunning. Made in Melbourne, awesome quality and designs are just so sweet, magical and so so cool, I love that squid shirt, very spunky. I found this via My Messy Room and I know they stock it but not sure where else but I will find out and post it.

It was my birthday today and I am now 26. Well yesterday the 19th of October, it's past midnight as usual. I edited this photo and I love the sky but the rest are just Jimmy and I this afternoon playing around the washing line, seems to be his favourite game lately, ducking in and out of the towels and sheets.
We had a lovely quiet day, my mum and grandpa ( Dadan) came over for a little while and the kids were great and it was a very nice birthday.

Here's some really cool children's furniture, rooms and spaces I stumbled across.
These 3 are from a private kindergarten in Israel found at The Cool Hunter
This bed is from thukaonline.co.uk. It starts as a low toddler bed then goes to this, then you can make it higher and turn it into a bunk and then the last stage is to go higher again and have another bed and desk, pretty clever.
I like the look of the bed on the floor, the next ones are from Luxury Home Interiors
And if it's a small space you've got then this looks like the perfect solution
And if your looking for a fairy room this one one should inspire
There are some seriously crafty parents out there, like Lori Danelle who took shipping pallets and transformed them into the cutest toddler bed. So cute, in fact, you might even consider figuring out how to make this into your own adult size bed. Lori took two shipping pallets, cut them and pieced them together to make this eco- and kid-friendly toddler bed and even shares her hints and tips for theDIY project on her blog.
Found via Inhabitat, EspaceLoggia, a French company founded in the 1970s by actress Brigitte Bardot’s sister, makes modest dwellings work by maximizing the use of vertical space. The modular nature of the company’s furnishing systems also means that they can be adapted over time to respond to changing needs—evolving as your own child grows.
Some places for kids to run away, hide, play, get up to mischief and sleep.
Found via Giver's Log.
i know, wow, right? available here

I've been staring at this corner for a long time wondering what to do and also it was just dirt so when I would push Jimmy in the swing I would be pretty much be standing in mud. So this lovely sunny afternoon I covered it with pavers. It's very lumpy and uneven but it's ok for now. Might try to redo it when Mike's back and I also want to get a heap of those lovely ground covers to scatter through so it softens the edges of the pavers.
I did the same last year but in a circle next to the sandpit but they got full sun and were too hot to stand on so this spot is in shade most of the day, especially when the apple tree gets it's lush leaves back.
