Hello Listen/Watch/Read Pip-Life

:: Good things. Nice cats.


Hey Babe-Faces!

How are you? I am okay. I am. I think. I’ve been a bit ill, so I’m trying to sort that out. I’ll be right as rain before you know it!

I thought I’d share some good stuff with you tonight. Beaming out the things from me to you!

1. A new song from Lisa Mitchell. She’s such an ace gal, right? I found this via my friend Alanka.

2. I’m thinking about Ubud a lot, so I’m reading this book (found via the Ubud Writer’s Festival hashtag!) It’s funny and I am liking the adventure of it, even though I don’t have a backpack OR a baby (anymore!)

3. I’ve just started watching this series about happiness on iView.

4. I’m thinking of having a week off soon. I am trying to manifest a little house by the sea or in the bush to retreat to. Mostly I just want to read books, write and look at the view. (And also eat good things!)

5. I am also reading Sally’s ace book. It’s super delightful and I love hearing about their family and the ride-on mower and about what you should dip in vinegar and how nice some cats are.

6. I am crocheting this (still!)

7. And I am painting this (more on that soon!)

Do you have anything good to share? Add it in the comments below! I’d love to read about it!

    Such good things!
    Apart from the sickness, that is not good and I hope it goes away soon.
    I talked a tince about SFM on my blog last night and now I’m packing for Jazzy to go to camp while searching revelry for cute softie patterns. I’m thinking I might make a kitty.

    Yes Pip! Working hard on a music/ creative project with my husband called The Quincys. I am learning loads of new skills, and just loving having so much to do (in a weird way maybe, given I am already busy). 🙂 I’d be still dreaming of Ubud too…such a beautiful place. Hope you get your week off soon. x

    Hi Pip
    Yesterday – Sunday 5.10 I travelled to Bendigo. My daughter in law helped a friend of hers to organise a market to raise funds to honour the memory of the friends little son who had been taken from her in the worst possible way.
    I am so proud of what both of them achieved in organising the fundraiser. They will be building a playground in his memory.
    A whole community has come together. Out of a tragedy has come the best of people’s souls. What a shame it took a tragedy, but from it has come a healing and a sense of purpose for the family. I’m just really lucky. 🙂

      Oh that’s amazing. How humbling, Robyn. What a wonderful, responsive, caring community they are. Good on you for being part of something so important. xx

    Hi Pip, what stitch are you using for your latest blanket? Is it a double crochet? I love it.
