Hi there, it's been another busy week this week so far with more rehearsals on Monday night - it was the first time we went through the songs with the orchestra (11 musicians). It sounded really good and we got home just after 9.30pm. Yesterday I went to ballet practise... Continue reading

Hi, it's Monday early pm and I've just finished my lunch. On Saturday I had ballet class in the morning and then I bagged the apple sauce I made late Friday pm. I went out into the paddock to limb up some more trees and John joined me, dragging the... Continue reading

Hi, it's lunchtime on Wednesday and we woke to 8.5 degrees C and a very heavy dew! I was a bit perturbed to see condensation at the bottom of some of our doors and windows though, eeeeek... We have stunning sapphire blue skies and sunshine without it being too hot,... Continue reading

Hi, it's Tuesday pm and I had a lovely time at ballet practise this morning. It felt so good dancing after having a week when I couldn't! Wow!! Also made my soul feel so much more settled. I've been rushing every since, labeling plants for delivery this week and organising... Continue reading

Hi on a lovely drizzly Monday morning. I've just been thrashing out my Mud Cakes and Roses column which was due in on Friday the 10th. It completely slipped my mind because I was in New Plymouth but I got an extension to lunchtime today which is so lovely of... Continue reading

Hi, I'm so sorry for my silence and I have to be honest.. it completely slipped my mind to update my blog! I've been in New Plymouth for the past 6 days with my gorgeous Mum who broke her hip and then developed bowel complications. As of last Monday we... Continue reading

Hi there, I've had a very busy day so far although part of it has involved having my hair trimmed so that wasn't exactly hard work! I delivered plants to Mapua Country Store, came home for a quick cup of tea and then left to get my hair trimmed. I... Continue reading

Hi, well yesterday was a fairly eventful day and not in a good way! I was sitting in my studio enjoying a cup of tea at about 10.45am when I suddenly heard a muffled bang, then another louder bang and the most hora rendous noise of what sounded like screeching... Continue reading

Hi there, it's Sunday morning and I'm about to leap out into the garden while I can. I say leap but my left knee is playing up again so I'm not doing anything too radical. I felt it twang a bit at ballet on Friday morning when I was doing... Continue reading

Hi, oh brother I had no idea the last time I posted was 3 days ago. This week seems to have been completely mad even though we haven't had any Fiddler rehearsals since last Sunday! I was going to have a week of calm to catch up on sleep etc... Continue reading

Hi, it's late pm and I'm in the middle of sowing some more seeds. I spent most of this pm labeling plants ready for delivery to both places this week. I'm really excited about my ''affordable'' perennials in punnets - 3 of a variety for NZ$7. I'm still doing my... Continue reading

Hi from a ''melting pool of Philippa''. We've had horrid humidity for the past four days and its not showing any signs of going away! This makes pricking out seedlings or doing anything outside fairly unbearable for me - oh how I wish I coped with heat better. Yesterday's rehearsal... Continue reading

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a lovely weekend wherever you are. I'm spending some time in my studio this morning resting my singing muse for rehearsal this pm. I really wanted to garden but as I'm going to be on my feet for most of the afternoon I decided... Continue reading

Hi on a very humid Saturday afternoon. The air feels incredibly heavy and sticky which is not conducive to comfortable gardening. I'm hoping to get out there soon to so some and am just praying the sun doesn't come back out because when it does it's like being inside a... Continue reading

Hi there, it's Thursday pm and I'm about to get changed before heading out to ballet class. I'm meeting John after that and we're grabbing a bite to eat before heading to Fiddler rehearsal again. We've been rehearsing one particular scene (singing and choreography) this week and tonight we are... Continue reading

Hi on a rather lovely but slightly windy Wednesday pm. We started off with a lovely cool morning but I have to say the sun is hot. I delivered my plants to Mapua Country Store and then spent an hour in my neighbours' garden weeding and cutting dahlias and other... Continue reading

Hi and Happy Valentine's Day wherever you are. I quickly put together a tag for John yesterday and he bought me a lovely card too. We don't tend to go ''mad'' about Valentine's Day here in NZ so no dinner out or anything. Probably just as well because I am... Continue reading

Hi, we woke to some rain this morning and it was just so gorgeous. Then........... the SW wind came up and dried out all of the precious moisture - bah!! I've spent today pricking out seedlings, sowing some seed and doing a little bit of work on some more gift... Continue reading

...this is starting to sound monotonous! Smiles.. Crikey all I seem to be doing at the moment is going between Fiddler rehearsal, ballet and seedlings with a teensy tiny bit of gardening inbetween! It will be this way until the show in early April. Yesterday morning I went to ballet... Continue reading
