My blogs

About me

Location Perth, Australia
Introduction I started this blog in 2010 after my husband Tom, our daughter Sophie and I moved from our little apartment by the beach to a house in the suburbs.. I spent my time growing veggies in the garden, cooking delicious wholesome meals and mastering the art of sewing. In January 2011 after several years of trying for another baby (and two miscarriages), we suffered a terrible loss when our daughter Grace was stillborn at 22 weeks. 6 weeks later we packed up our life in Sydney and moved to sunny Perth.. But, this is not a blog about stillbirth or loss, while that will always be a huge part of my life, this is a place for me to talk about all the things that I enjoy.. Mainly drinking tea and buying pretty fabric.. x
