In which we spend a day at home and a watched phone doesn't ring...

Around our house today…
…eggs dyed for easter

…buttons ready to be sewn

...wishing the phone would ring whilst playing hard to get with the real estate agent

...playing tea parties

…more phone watching

…cranky overtired little people


  1. What a gorgeous little photographic tour of your day..especially the little tea set and quilt. Fingers crossed for you!

  2. What's the secret to getting the eggs so fantastically coloured? - mine never seem to work!

  3. Rae: choose the whitest eggs you can find (pale cream will do) - mix three cups warm water with 2 tablespoons vinegar. Divide the mix between two bowls and put about 8 drops of food dye in each bowl. Leave the eggs in the dye for as long as it takes to get a nice rich colour.

    Thanks Tania!

  4. Oh dear, I hope the phone did eventually ring! I've also discovered that a watched delivery van doesn't turn up until the very end of the day, when you sit down to dinner!! x

  5. Waiting for real estate agents is the worst...have you actually put in an offer??!
