Congratulations Will and Kate.. today is your day..

Images by Tim Bailey straight from Regent St

I am British and proud to be so. I love Australia and I live here with eternal gratitude to the Country for having me but today I wish I was at my other home, if only just for the parties and merriment happening in every street let alone to see my family.

Congratulations Will and Kate on creating a new approach to the Monarchy. They are hip and happening as my olds would say and I think they bring so much to the Royal Family that has been needed for oh so long..

So Rewarding....

I am so chuffed and honored to receive my first ever Blog Award! Tamra in the US from the lovely blog,Walks with Bella, awarded me as one of her recipents for the One Lovely Blog Award!  

As a recipient, I am supposed to share 7 things about myself and then award 15 more bloggers.

Seven things:
  1. I am mildly OCD with my house, a lunatic multi tasker and since kids don't seem to be able to chill so well..
  2. I have two kids, Kitty Aged nearly 4 (named due to my obsession with Hello Kitty as a kid) and Harrington Aged 2 (named after my maiden name) 
  3. I am in the middle of setting up a new website that will risk rather a lot of our life savings... cue complete fear mixed with excitement
  4. I am UK and a London Girl and do love the Union Jack in all forms..however I am an Aussie Citizen and very lucky to live in such a fab country
  5. I have competed in Ironman Triathlons and can't get enough of the racing buzz
  6. My Dogs are Obi (Hubby a Star Wars Fan) and Tyler (I loved Brad Pitt in Fight Club), Tyler recently departed us ;(

15 blogs that I would like to award with the One Lovely Blog Award, in no particular order:

Thank you Tamra, you rock xx

Oooh Bobby...

I had a long day yesterday. I am really excited about a new project I am working on and it will be fabulous for so many people but is going to be a huge investment for me both time and money wise so when I am feeling a little despondent I just take a look at Bobby...I think he might cream in Grey too..

The last two are my favourites and I have so many more in my files, his book is gorgeous and the images always put me in a dreamy state in a matter of minutes. I do have another favourite or two but I'll save them for another tough day *wink*

Art House....

What do you think this is? A new funky gallery?, a collection of pictures from the inner city? Graffitti Artists gathering?.....No it is a $10 million+ house in Lavender Bay, Sydney... and the rest is slightly more sedated but still fabulously decorated with some statement artworks (check out the cow in the dining room and I love the apple in the Hallway). I love cruising real estate sites..

Truly wonderful....not to everyones taste...not to a huge amount of peoples taste I am sure but oh so personal and unique so I thought it was worth sharing xx
