Falling in Love with Ginger

kittens-2

As you may have seen in Monday’s post, Kevin and I had a pretty exciting weekend – we adopted two gorgeous kittens from the SPCA! Both of us absolutely love animals and have been hanging out to welcome cats into our family for quite some time, but we never lived in a house where they were allowed.

After Norm’s passing in early April our home was feeling pretty empty, then we bought the house and were finally in a position to welcome some larger furry friends into the family – it’s fair to say we were pretty excited!

Bright and early on Saturday morning we headed over to the SPCA to find our new furbabies. Despite there being plenty of cats and kittens to choose from, it didn’t take long for us to find our babies – they were energetic, friendly and cuddly; the perfect fit for our family!

Happy Monday!

Wow, what a beautiful weekend – just perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day in the sunshine. Unfortunately Kevin was ill this weekend so we didn’t head out and enjoy the great weather, instead relaxing and recuperating at home. But excitingly we finally bought our own Nespresso machine – I’m so in love with it I was wishing Monday morning would come faster so I could make another cup. If you’re willing Monday to arrive, you know the coffee must be good!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and had a fabulous Mother’s Day, however you celebrated. Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

What an absolutely beautiful weekend – it was such a treat to be able to spend much of the weekend out and about, enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Our weekend was filled with relaxation and life planning – not things you usually think of going together – and we’ve come out of it feeling pretty excited about the adventures on the horizon… can’t wait to share them with you!

Hope you had an equally wonderful weekend! Here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a magical Christmas and New Years – I don’t know about you, but around here it feels like the past two weeks have absolutely whizzed by.

The first day back at work after a good break can be tough, so take a break and get back into the swing of things with the first Mondayitis post of the year – enjoy!

Happy Monday!

Wow – what a weekend, I don’t even know where to begin! It began off wonderfully with a visit to our cute little new house, coffee and cronuts with a friend, and a night out at Wicked (which was ‘wicked’ – sorry, I had too!). But overall Sunday was… a struggle! Packing, packing and more packing, followed by locking ourselves out of the house and Kevin serious suggesting he try and climb the exterior of our three story building… let’s just say I’m glad it’s over!

So bring on the new week!! Here are five things to help get your Monday off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

Despite the weather being rather gloomy, I had an absolutely wonderful weekend doing… very little at all! After weeks and weeks of business, Kevin and I finally got  a chance to sit back and relax this weekend – think coffees, movies, treats and (of course) plenty of baking.

I hope you had a lovely weekend too and are refreshed and ready for the week ahead. Here are five things to help get your week off to a great start…

Happy Monday!

Somehow I don’t think many of you will have a case of ‘the Mondays’ this morning – it’s Easter Monday so you’ve probably had a sleep in, leisurely breakfast and an Easter egg or two to get the day off to a good start (I know I have!) But to make your day even brighter – or give you something to read with morning tea – here are five of my favourite things this week.
