I'm not here, I'm there...

I'm not home at the moment. I'm here. In the country. In an old, rambling farmhouse with nothing but 3000 hectares of rolling pastures, a mountainous backdrop, and the sound of distant thunder. It's a long way from the stresses of everyday life. And I'm happy, here with my family. And only one bar of mobile reception. My shops are on 'vacation' for the week and so (blessedly) am I.

If you need me, I'll be here...

Our cottage, a million miles from anywhere...

the outside...
Elli-Boo with hands outstretched to catch....

..... the grapes that drape along the cottage verandah!
We're getting some amazing family portraits! 
But best of all some quality family time together.
I wish you all were here! xx


  1. Looks just fab Nic. Really peaceful. I'm envious, naturally.

  2. BLISS! Enjoy!!! Even the tantrums seem that little bit easier when there's no one else to hear them but the trees!

  3. Oh enjoy! It looks like heaven!

  4. Sounds positively perfect Nicole. Enjoy the break with your gorgeous family... I'm off to have a little bloggy catch-up on your older posts I've missed lately xx
