things to do.....

I'm feeling totally inspired today by this lovely book by Lena Corwin. It's called Printing By Hand and it's just delightful. I'm itching to get my hands on some fabric paint and experiment. Hopefully, when my Aunty comes over later today, I can duck out without the little one and pick some up.
I cheekily purchased the book last week while doing Father's Day shopping. I was going to pretend it was for L.F. but I don't think he really would have appreciated it.......the Top Gear box set was more in line with him.

I found this list of Sydney's child friendly places while surfing the next yesterday and I'm going to work my way through some of these. I figure it should be a good start to getting Ziya & I out and about while the L.F. is at work. We started off yesterday with a walk to Rushcutters Bay, around to Darling Point and then stopped in at the Canteen for a coffee on the return journey. It's quite the haven for a lady with a pram around there, I tell you.

I'm off to Cenntenial Park this morning for a walk date with someone I haven't yet met. She'll be there with a baby and a beagle.

Take a peek at this sweet blog by M.Patrizio.
Have a great day & cheerio.

Hey Belles,

That book looks great! Glad you've found some good kid friendly cafes. There's another great one but it's way out in Beecroft called Chicken and Fishhead. See this link for info on it plus another one

Also you've inspired me to start my own blog but I think I need a lesson or two. You can find it at

Miss you till I kiss you xxx

Thanks Berry to the link to your new blog! I love it and I promise to help you out with a little blog tutorial when I'm next in melb.

Ah, Ladle, I think the BF would love a box set.....and possibly even margaret! I know she likes a 'fast ride'.

I'm glad you loved the Timmies too hoppo bumpo. I think I'm going to have to head back over there to her shop.

Cant wait to see what you produce after reading the book - I actually ordered the same book about a week ago from Amazon and cant wait until it arrives.
