Green Envy

I need a little calm this morning. I have been running around like a chook with her head cut off trying to get *stuff done* and actually getting nothing done. I have also been dealing with a sad little Harper who we found out yesterday afternoon actually has a middle ear infection (oh so that would explain the tears and needing to be cuddled by Mama. Don’t I feel like an arsehole?) Anyway, we have some friends over for a few hours this morning so rushing to get something out…to you…see what I mean about the rushing?

So. Where were we? Oh yes. Take a deep breath {insert deep breath} and soak up these pretties:
I NEED this to be my pool (if I had a pool). This is from my most favourite house EVER that I discovered on The Selby. Did I mention I love this site? I do. And this house? Amazing on so many levels. Couldn’t you just spend a day down by this pool with gin & tonic in hand on a heavy summers day? Oh I most definitely could.
And imagine this little river at the bottom of your garden? Um yes please.
And I think I would be a calmer person if this were my living room. That rug? That green grass rug? Genius. And that view out there? Not half bad either. I have always wanted to have a house on a lake in the States somewhere. In any case, I most certainly would not be running around like a headless chook in the mornings in this house (oh except for the bit where I had to clean it up to look this this!)
Hope your Friday has a little green zen to it. Somewhere. Somehow.

    That floor alone would bring out the crazy chook in me… can you imagine keeping it clean when the patter of muddy feet is everywhere?! I would have to cancel my life and attach mops to the bottom of my feet to be happy. The view would help with that.

    OMG have totally done the same thing with the middle ear infection. Almost said shutup too. Well, I did, I just left the room and shouted it outside then returned. :)

    I live in the country and I still want to live in the country as depicted in these pictures. Sigh. One day.

    Um, love, you can totally fit that book in your new stonkin’ big backyard… As Frank’n'Furter says, “Don’t dream it – be it” xx

    Pool, POOL was what I meant to write – damn. What is WRONG with me today? (I have written over 4000 words in the past few days, could that help? And the four double shots I’ve already had today – possibly part of the problem?) Okay, going now.

    I agree – glorious pool.

    That house certainly oozes calm. All that space! I wish…

    I am so with you! That pool is amazing. I am finding a little Zen today – had a shitty week the girls had headlice but they are dead now I think (the lice not the girls!!)
