You have missed me haven't you - admit it :)
Once again, I could ramble on about why I haven't written a post for so long. I could rant and rave about the woes of working night shift and caring for a toddler but let's face it, that is oh so boring.
I could even rant and rave about the fact that I have had two root canals since my last post (yes, that is two dead teeth in my little mouth) but that would be boring too and quite frankly, freakin painful -  nothing compared to childbirth though :) In my opinion, it is criminal that epidurals cannot be given for tooth pain ;)
I feel like I have lost a bit of direction with this blog and hobbies that I have just for me. I need a project. Yes, I have this blog. I love this blog. I even have pinterest to preoccupy my creativity, but what I miss most of all since moving into our new house is our old garden. My little insignificant veggie patch that I used to tend to daily. My herbs in my hot pink laundry tubs. None of what I had previously was flash by any means, but it was mine and it gave me something to 'tinker' with - does that make sense? Yes, I need to start tinkering. I am a tinkerer. I spend so much time outside with Dominic, there is no excuse really. Put it this way, my creative energy is so stifled at the moment that I removed the doors to the cupboards in our kitchen this afternoon and have been obsessively styling our shelves. Chris is yet to see it. He may not be impressed :) For the record, my kitchen shelves are beginning to look a little swanky - well to me anyway :)
Anyways, so in conversation with a work colleague the other night who is always curious about my blog and interests, I have been inspired to once again embark on a small gardening project. I am going to start another small veggie patch. I will have to focus most of my energy on growing things in pots and a much smaller raised garden bed. Remember this?

 I have purchased this little beauty for some ideas on gardening in smaller spaces.
Excitedly, I have also been pouring through this old friend. I swear, this book is one of the best presents I have every received....

I have also been finding heaps of inspiration from beautiful blogs. I have only just discovered Messy Nessy Chic. I am not sure where to start, except to say that I could become a little emotional as I pour through this blog, its wonderful photos and amazing stories from all over the world. Take this post for example which featured on Messy Nessy today - potted plants everywhere lining the streets of Paris. Complete bliss. This post also from Messy Nessy, sent me crazy with gardening inspiration. Some people are seriously clever and this blog is seriously amazing. Check it out now!
So there it is friends. I have a new project. I hereby promise to take photos of the good, the bad and the ugly of my new project. Maybe with this will come more frequent posts - you just never know :)
Thanks again for bearing with me and following this blog. I really do love writing for you and sharing all my Internet finds.
Happy Friday lovelies

Follow me on bloglovin'....

Friends, it has come to my attention that Google Reader will no longer exist at the end of this week - fancy that! Basically this means if you follow my little blog via Google Reader, you will now need to open a Bloglovin' account to keep up with A Little Home with Freesias. It is such an easy process and a great way to efficiently follow your favourite blogs. I will still be on Facebook and Pinterest and you can still subscribe via email (see link on right hand side of page).
You can follow A little Home with Freesias on bloglovin' by clicking on this link.
I don't want to lose all 15 of you - quick do it now!
 It has been over a month since I last did a post but I am still here, I promise.
I love my blog but have been feeling a bit down in the dumps about the whole thing. I had a big a oh woe is me story to tell you but I guess, in short, I have blogger's block. Have you had that before?
I am hoping that it is curable :) In the meantime, we will always have Pinterest - enjoy my loves...

Gorgeous pendant lights, organised jars and indoor plants are a must!
I am also on the hunt for more rugs.... our little house is gorgeous but freezing! Drafts are whistling up in between our floorboards. Should make for ideal living in the Queensland summer though, when I will be complaining once again about the heat :)via designsponge

What is inspiring you this week?

PS. Technology is not my strong point, not at all. It has now come to my attention, one day later, that the link in the post to bloglovin' is not working. Instead, click on the Eiffel Tower link on the right hand side of the page and this should take you to my link on bloglovin'.... :) x
