The Friday Recliner ~ January 14th

Hey friends welcome back !!!! and of course a beautiful big Happy New Year What are you up to these days? What do you love doing in these early days of January? I'm back at work but definitely still in summer holiday mode so it's bubble tea on repeat, easy dinners, the fan on full and getting myself near the water for a little bit most days. This time of year when the kids were smaller we always went camping (which they tell me now they hated for the most part so, so much for giving them idyllic childhood summers) but I loved it and miss it.  Going swimming helps and sitting in a camp chair with a cold drink and a good spray of Aeroguard on does too. That smell just takes me there. I hope your heading into the new year in whatever way suits you best. If you like to sprint on in I'm cheering you on but if your strolling along in Christmas recovery mode that's ok too. I'm right there with you. Whichever it is I hope these few good words reads are kind company along the way- - -

The Friday Recliner ~ Christmas Edition

Hi friends, so glad your here. Around here we're warming up to Christmas in a backhanded roundabout kind of a way. Our December first tradition of putting up the Christmas tree went pair shaped this year because we couldn't rustle up the energy and teenagers simply have different priorities than their former ten year old selves. She finally went up last Tuesday with the usual rearrangement of the lounge room and the usual putting up of the Christmas tree barney. God bless us at least we kept that tradition! 

The Friday Recliner ~ December 10th

Happy weekending friends Didn't quite make it for Friday because sometimes what your really need to do is drink a cup of tea and go to bed. Works just the same on a Saturday or Sunday so I'm here better late than never and because it's one of my favourite things to do, I've rounded up a few good words and reads to keep you company as you enjoy your weekend. So take a few deep breaths, grab something good to drink and enjoy  - - -

The Friday Recliner ~ December 3rd

Happy Friday friends. Hope this finds you doing well Around here with the arrival of new washing machine, I've been happily working my way through a mountain of dirty clothes and never been so grateful to do so. Unexpected bonus; she's teeny tiny compared to our previous so I've suddenly got all this extra room in my laundry to play with. Luxury !  Because its one of my favourite things to do, I've rounded up a few good words and reads to keep you company as you end your week and head into your weekend. So take a few deep breaths, grab something good to drink and enjoy  - - -

The Friday Recliner ~ November 26th

Happy Friday friends and happy thanksgiving to my American friends Looking forward to anything lovely this weekend? These parts its still pouring down rain and has been most of the week. The ceiling in Ethan's room has sprung a leak and the washing machines blown up so good times here. I've been washing clothes in the bathroom sink and wringing them dry by hand pioneer woman like which has been very grounding  in a weird sort of way. (This hot on the heels of the dishwasher packing it in last week). Man does it ever make you appreciate those modern conveniences.  Anyhoo this weekend I'm looking forward to buying a new washing machine. Wish me well !! As always because it's one of my favourite things to do, I've rounded up a few good words and reads to keep you company as you end your week and head into your weekend.

The Friday Recliner ~ November 19th

Happy Friday friends.
I hope the weeks been kind to you?
Anything lovely planned this weekend?
My best friend is meeting her first grand baby for the very first time this weekend and I'm so happy for her. Same for another friend who's recently moved into what she describes as her first real home. I can see pictures being hung and homey things being set about and her relief and joy I can feel from here. If the weather allows, my sister will be up to her elbows in potting mix and succulents and with discussions this week about a multi layered fairy garden I'm eager to see how it turns out.
Now because it's one of my favourite things to do, I've rounded up a few good words and reads to keep you company as you end your week and head into your weekend.
