New playstand

Here is our new playstand that we've been waiting for since Easter! It finally arrived on Thursday, then we had to assemble it. The baskets are from Ikea, and are handy storage. I'll probably play around with the set up a bit until I'm happy with it, Evie wants to put on puppet shows, so we'll have to move it out from the wall for that.
When my baby smiles at me I go to Rio...

Happy (belated) world environment day!

It was world environment day about a month ago, and Andrew's work gave them all a native tree or bush to plant. Evie and I finally planted it today, in our nature strip. It's a Bottlebrush tree, or Callistemon. Here's Evie hard at work. We even used reclaimed water from a dish in the laundry where I wet cloths to wipe bottoms- the water is clean as it is the water that comes out of the tap before the warm water comes through. You have to look hard to see the tree, it's quite small at the moment.

Livinia's Star Baby

Here's a couple of pics of Livinia's star baby from MoonChild Handwork Studio. She sent it to us with another order last year for our unborn Livinia. Well here she is, 6 months old, and loves her first dolly.

We have solar hot water!

Yay! Those 2 panels on our roof belong to our new solar hot water system, now we just need some sunshine. Starting to tick some eco friendly boxes for our 1950's house. Next up, a rainwater tank...

Evie's wooden clothesline (a birthday gift from her nana & pa), she likes to peg her toys on there...hmmm.
