Today was one of those blissful lazy summer days. Well, I say lazy but we spent most of the morning doing chores around the house. However there is something rather cathartic about cleaning and clearing away the clutter sometimes! Sometimes…I really am the most appalling house-keeper…I can always find so many other interesting things I would rather do!So apart from the busy morning, the afternoon saw all the residents of Cape Cottage just chilling out, relaxing and enjoying the sunshine! I have quite a few new freckles to show for it, oh dear.
I took my journal out to the garden with a lovely cup of iced coffee (bliss!) and a new gift book I have being eager to read. Little son decided he too would bring a book out to the garden and have a wee drink with me. He has a bit of an obsession with bunny rabbits at the moment, possibly because I keep reading him the Peter Rabbit stories, but also I suspect due to the fact we have cut down on chocolate and yummy things in our house (hubby has started to affectionately call me ‘pudding’!) and my dear son knows the Easter Bunny brings chocolate! Thus we have a bit of a bunny theme going these days.
We even managed to fill a tiny wee bowl with strawberries from the garden; I fear they are probably the last ones we will get this season. However, the lettuce in the garden is coming in like crazy so we will eat like rabbits instead, ha ha!

I’ve just had a lovely lavender bath and feel so relaxed and mellow…the first time in ages. Only another 2 weeks till I get my test results, but I refuse to worry anymore. I am going to live in the moment for a bit and practice mindfulness – it really must be better than worrying all the time!
Have a good week lovelies! xxx
