Now why didn't I think of that...

I absolutely love these door decals from Finland-based Made Of Sundays. What a clever idea! Especially for us renters who don't have the option of painting, wallpapering or hanging things onto walls. I'll definitely be adding these to my wishlist... You can find them all here.

A visit to Giraffe House

Last weekend we bundled the boys in the car and took them to Giraffe House, a Wildlife Awareness Centre about 30 minutes outside of Cape Town. I've been there before, aaages ago, when Sam was about the same age as Oliver is now. Gosh, they had so much fun! In addition to the usual selection of farm animals there are zebras, crocodiles, monkeys, snakes and my personal favourite, a giraffe!

Gerry the giraffe is absolutely gorgeous! There's a Mr Giraffe too - a new addition - and he is currently being kept on the other side of the centre. All the fences between their enclosures have been removed to encourage Gerry to move to her new camp and her new mate in her own time. Awww... I'm hoping there'll be a little baby giraffe making an appearance soon :-)


Note to self

Hello Lovelies, it's been a while hasn't it? I really need to heed this ^ advice, particularly today. I often find myself stressing about situations beyond my control. Nothing terribly serious... just a case of miscommunication with an acquaintance but still, here I am fretting about it!

On a brighter note I've been kept busy with a few more freelance design jobs this year. It's been great to work again and earn some money. We'd love to buy our own home soon so every little helps :-) Of course being busy with 'real work' means that my poor blog and Etsy shop have been rather neglected... I guess it's just a case of finding the right balance. In other words, stop watching rubbish on the telly at night ;-) But in the meantime, I'm not going to worry about it!
