At The Villa

  • Keeping warm and cosy inside even though it's icy cold outside.

  • Loving my shiny new dishwasher!

  • Winter market cancelled due to gale force winds and rain, means more time to prepare for Spring market!

  • Beautiful sweet, fat, red strawberries are in season!

  • Two sleep-ins in a row means I get to catch up on sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


  1. I cant believe its soooo cold over there, must ring my dd and see if shes keeping warm! enjoy, your post sounds just lovely re strawbs in season!

  2. I'm wondering how strawberries can ripen in the cold of winter there, while here they need the heat of summer to ripen? Is our summer the same temperature as your winter?

    I'm getting depressed just thinking about it :)

    (I love the colours you've chosen for this lovely piece).

    1. LOL Kate, not quite the same as your summer, though in Queensland (closer to the equator) the temps are lovely and warm at this time of year for growing strawberries. I live further south in NSW and we typically have strong winds in Aug that pull the temps down. Brrr!

  3. And I am glad you have a new dishwasher and are getting some rest, take good care Patti, xoO

  4. Good life at the Villa ! Light and love, Bright One !
