Some of you may remember my last blog: Food, flora and felines (now long closed down) which focused on my interests in nutrition, cooking and organic gardening. I wrote it a couple of years ago when I was in the middle of my nutrition degree and we lived in an adorable  little old cottage in the country with a giant veggie patch. Clichéd as it sounds it was a really magical time in my life, we had a very serene little existence that revolved around our garden, pets, a handful of neighbours and the nature that surrounded us. It also happened to be an amazing place to blog from, I'm always a bit awestruck when I look back on the old pictures at just how beautiful our life was. Don't get me wrong, things are still great now, I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful old flat, to have a garden with a view of the river and fantastic, fun neighbours but it's a very different existence in the city and not nearly so naturally charming.


  1. I missed being in the countryside so much when I was in the city, and I guess a move back to the city is looming on the horizon. I remember these photos well, still look gorgeous!

    1. I know, I keep getting the urge to relocate again lately, which is crazy because commuting is such a pain in the butt! I've actually fallen in love with Tipperary in particular lately, I adore all the gentle rolling hills and trees!

  2. The strawberries on the second pic look sooo tasty!!! Your hair is gorgeous babe!

  3. Such charming photos! The kitty surrounded by the buttercups is precious! So lovely to have lived the country life for awhile...
