This is the view from my kitchen. You can barely make them out here, but the neighbours horses are looking very bedraggled and sorry for themselves in the rain.

We're rugging up.

The clothes dryer has been running all day and all my windows look like this.

I made lunch for my mother's parents and her brother and sister on the weekend. It was lovely to see them all together and the baby was much adored.

We ate this lasagne from Donna Hay magazine. I'm terrible at remembering to photograph food when I have company so I have no proof of the finished product, but it was a fair approximation of this picture. Lasange is always a crowd pleaser and so warming on days like these.

This is Claudia Roden's orange cake, which I did remember to photograph. I make this cake rather a lot, but try to remember to feed it to different people.

This Sportsgirl necklace is very badly made and the chain keeps breaking under its own weight. So pretty though.

And wonderful for making dull outfits pop.

  1. It looks pretty dreamy out there on your porch with that table set and ORANGE CAKE (sounds so yum).
