Things I'm loving - Part 1.

In an attempt to encourage some actual blogging around these parts, I've decided to spend the next few days posting about things I'm loving at the moment. Will do a few things a day and see if I can find my mojo again.
So, without further ado, these are some of the things that are winning at the moment:

* My new 'Croutons' labels.
LOVE love these. I ordered them, on advice from twinny, from They are made in Hong Kong and I must confess that I was a little skeptical about how awesome they would really be. I emailed back and forth a few times before they understood exactly what I wanted (they were friendly and helpful, but the broken English did make it a little hard to specify things) but they are wonderful. Can't wait to get cracking on some kids clothes!

* Being a Playcentre Mum.
Never thought I would say it, but I'm really loving Playcentre. We had a big working bee on Sunday and even that didn't put me off! Heh. I'm only going one day a week, and will probably continue to do so until Otto is a bit bigger, but I really enjoying watching Otto devour the opportunity to do so many different things and play with so many other kids, spending time with other Mums and feeling of belonging.

* Avalanche City -  Our new life above the ground.
This album is absolutely darling. It is full of indie, lovey, handclappy goodness. If you haven't already, download it (for free!) HERE.

* My husband.


  1. What beautiful labels! So sparkly! I think I'm in a bit of a blog rut too...perhaps I need to follow your lead :)

    Just downloading that album...thanks for the linky!

  2. LOVE the tags, they're so pretty!!!!!!

  3. 2 posts before lunch, go you! Labels are very cool. Hoping for some little girls (but not girly girl) things from croutons!? I'll keep my eyes peeled on felt. Yeah playcentre is great huh - always gotta love the kids making a giant mess somewhere other than your lounge. Will check out album when we get off dial-up bleergh. Cute pic with A.
