Stills: A Weekly Collection





1. Fresh Flowers. For $5 a bunch at aldi, who can resist?
2. oooh hello! Thats my hospital bag zipped and ready to go. 
3. My favourite pants (that's 'soft pants' to you Nikki)
4. The smoke box. We've been getting right into smoking since seeing Hugh do it on River Cottage recently. Autumn is the season to rekindle your River Cottage love, my friends! I think I shall have to reinstate River Cottage night, recipes included.
5. Rainy day travels to near by water side locations.
6. Rainy day hot chip car pic nic. Best thing EVER.
7. That's dave strapping the boards on the roof for his last surf in a little while. Poor dude!

  3. I love River Cottage sooo much. I once had a naughty dream about Hugh. Is that sharing too much?

    1. ummm NO! TELL ME EVERYTHING!!!

      I have a serious crush on Gil. Whenever he comes on i smile involuntarily! Dave thinks it's hilarious.

    2. Gil is pretty cute, I'll give you that! I can't tell you exactly about the dream, I'm not one to kiss and tell (ha!)

      I was a bit surprised to find myself having a naughty dream about Hugh to be honest. What I really like about him is the puns he makes. There's a great segment he does with peas and the old "give peas a chance" line gets a look in, which I love because I hate peas and I don't want to give peas a chance. Yes, I'm a peas-hater. Anyway, it makes me giggle every time.

    3. Oh yes Gil is lovely! Daz nudges me whenever he's on. He thinks it's funny too x

    4. Oh how can you hate peas? They are so yummy, on their own, in risotto, with pasta, covered with home made mint sauce...shall I go on?
      That being said...my girls hate them too!

    5. I have tried to give peas a chance, many many times - but I just can't do it! I don't know why! I love lots of other veg that others seem to hate though, so I figure that balances it all out. Give me broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts - and pretty much any other veg any time, just not the peas! Anything but peas! Urgh :/

      I won't even tell you about the dream I had featuring Miguel from The Living Room - yowza! (Okay, it wasn't that dirty, he came to the school I teach at and cooked with me and my Year 7's ... and then promptly fell in love with me. Totally realistic.)

  4. Fresh flowers in old jars. Perfect! The fish n chips looks so good. Did you take buttered bread and tomato sauce? xo

  5. Ha ha just laughed at Naomi's comment above. Ooo the hospital bag has me all excited!!! LOVE that Aldi has $5 flowers, I'm too cheap to buy flowers usually.
    P.S. Now I have a fish and chip craving...shame I am approx 500 kms from the sea.

  20. what gorgeous flowers! hopefully you're house will be filled with a new baby and heaps of blooms too! We are huge River Cottage fans...I loved it when he made the smoker from an old bread tin...is that what you use? Did you know they are looking for an Aussie host for an Australian River Cottage season? Your man could certainly be a contender! Wishing you lazy days and lots of cups of tea my dear xx

    Lov, ritz xx

  23. Perfect photographs, as always. I often buy the Aldi flowers for my home too, but mine are always semi-dead.. I suppose that's what I get for doing my grocery shopping at night!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hello, fab pics! Just wondering where you bought your hospital bag from?... It's gorgeous! :)

  27. Love those pants! I've got some "hot pants" on my stills collection this week too. :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. Those flowers are beautiful. Might need to visit my local Aldi sometime soon.

    Love the rainy, moody ocean scene. And Dirt Music, one of my all time favourites. Time Winton can weave a story, can't he?

  29. The flowers are so lovely, and dirt music is an amazing book. You are so organised and still fitting in so much fun, Enjoy x

  30. Beautiful collection Em :) I think I might have to head to Aldi, I almost choked when I read where those gorgeous blooms came from. Has to be my favourite shot! Wishing you well for when that gorgeous bag is needed xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. Aaaah! Perth needs an Aldi!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I imagine if I owned those pants they'd be my favourite too :) I am also quite certain fish and chips were invented to be eaten in cars, hence our stash of chicken salt in the glove box. Sending happy delivery vibes to you xx

    ReplyDelete
  33. Am late this week Em, but love your photos and that expectant hospital bag! Good luck! Hope you can get a bit of sleep this week, take care xx
