{things i'm diggin', it's been a while}

 Word of the Year Necklace
  • getting my 'word of the year' necklace in the mail this week.  i love having a touchstone to remind me of my focus.
  • my word of the year.  it feels so strong and so right for this year.
  • walking the talk on my word of the year and getting stuck into some of the things on my fabulously big list.

Our new BBQ
  • our christmas present finally arriving on back order.  i don't think the oven or stove top will be seeing much action for a while.

  • receiving the most gorgeous new handbag from Lara at Thornberry.  We did a swap of a painting for a handbag and she dropped my bag over last week.  i haven't been without it since.  Don't you just love a swap?

  • buying some original art from my friend Michelle from Pipi La La.  I've loved her art and her blog for ages and Chuck Bass stole my heart.
  • allowing myself time and space to find my feet in my new job
  • exercising
  • reading
  • signing up for Mati and Lisa's new paint class 'Get Your Paint On'
  • feeling the solidity of my friendships
  • planning a really amazing and meaningful celebration/s for my 40th birthday
  • planning an absolutely incredible treat for myself.  i'll spill the beans on that one soon.
and you?  what are you diggin'?


  1. Love your resolve. What a great idea! Have a great day.

  2. Isn't it great that we can share a necklace! x

  3. Love the BBQ, so cute! And the bag, yum! I love the lining as well, so bright and happy! The necklace is gorgeous, I bet you can't take it off!

  4. Awww..Chuck. I loved painting him and I am SO glad he lives with you now!

    Where did you get your necklace? I LOVE it and I need one with my word.


  5. Yuuuuuum! I love grilled pineapple.

  6. I love the way you have come up with a word for the year. I fear that mine is "survival"!

  7. I'm diggin' your word charm and new painting - both are looking great!

    Congratulations on your upcoming 40th! You deserve a special occasion for that and more =-)

  8. Thanks Tinnie Girl - you've reminded me to re-read my big list and get on with it. After a really crappy day at work you've inspired me to do something positive for ME! thank you x

  9. I just found a drawing a friend did this week featuring the word 'Resolve'. It also features an owl. I came here to tell you about it, and what do I find... An owl.
