bedtime reading – june 2012

Chris and Pat on set, making preparations for their first video shoot. I'm not sure what they've spotted in the distance, but it certainly appears to have baffled our director duo...

Another month over! I can’t believe that I’ve now been self-employed for a whole month. My new schedule has meant that I have had more time to spend on this ‘ere blog, and I’m sure you’ll be positively delighted to hear that I hope to bring you three posts a week from now on. You lucky bunch :b The weather has been a little more summery in Cambridge over the past few days – I actually did a bit of work in the garden, and there may be the minute hint of a tan on my pasty pins… Fingers and toes crossed that July is gloriously warm and delightful.

To round up June on Little House in Town – we’ve had our first ‘spotlight on’ post, which featured ethical cosmetics company, Love Cosmetics, Chris and I celebrated our fifth year together with a seaside day out to Southwold, I paid tribute to my crazy dad on Father’s day, we looked at ways to upcycle a vintage jelly mould,  learnt how to deter moths the natural way and I shared my own rhubarb and cinnamon crumble recipe.

And there are tons of exciting things happening in July too – on Wednesday 4th I’ll be heading to Doddington Hall for a Cut Flower Growing Course with Catkin Flowers and The Natural Wedding Company, next week I’ll be guest-blogging over at ProBlogger on how to keep your passion for blogging alive, and I’ll be spending the next few weekends on set with Chris as he co-directs his first music video for a certain upcoming singer-songwriter (all shall be revealed soon my child!). Exciting times. Keep your eyes on LHIT for updates on all of the above, in addition, of course, to our usual plethora of ethical and sustainable delights…

Here’s my round-up of things that have caught my eye in the blogosphere over the last month:

It would make my day to hear from you :) The EU says I have to tell you that a cookie will be left on your computer if you leave a comment. The first time someone told me that, I was upset when an Oreo wasn't waiting on my keyboard upon my return...but hey, it's the law, so I gotta say it...
