To those of you out there in blog land who are still reading, hello and thank you for calling in.
If you have visited recently you will know that I have been having some technical issues with Blogger. Despite asking some knowledgeable people for help and reading endless forums I am unable to rid my photos of those black messages. After much deliberation I have decided to move my blogging space to the serious and slightly daunting world of WordPress. Actually, I have enlisted the help of a trusted fellow blogger to help me negotiate the world of URLs, hosting and plugins.
With my blog out of action I feel like a small part of me is missing. While I love Instagram, my blog feels like a broader base for my other projects, stories and connections and this is why I have decided against giving up on it completely.
This move could take time but I hope at the other end some of you will still call in occasionally and say hello.
In all my years of blogging I have never written a post without photos but today, sadly there are no photos. Instead, I will share with you some links to things I have loved and discovered recently.
Given our close ties to goats, this tea shop caught my eye recently on my interweb travels.
On a trip to Melbourne earlier this year I almost accidentally discovered Gewurzhaus while waiting for a delayed flight. I fell in love with this peaceful, aromatic shop immediately. Thanks to online shopping, I have recently re-visited. Packages in the mail are not the same as being welcomed into a beautiful shop but it is a wonderful thing to have this option from so far away.
There are just so many gorgeous hats out there but the headwear from Penelope Haddrill is timeless and completely wearable. Just in time for summer and for us, a month or two of horse events.
When it comes to passing the time while cleaning or tackling those mundane jobs The Food Podcast is a newly discovered favourite. This podcasts oozes warmth, friendliness and genuine stories.
Signing off for now, but I will be back x
