I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'


With the rain beating down on the roof tops today I thought it would be a good excuse to get myself a little organized.

Naaaaaaah - only joking!

Well not about the rain or the getting organized bit because..............I've had these labels for over a week or so now.

So it's not strictly something I've been doing today.

I discovered them a couple of weeks ago whilst doing a little internet shopping hopping - don't you just love that phrase - shopping hopping?

Or should that be 'hopping shopping?'............I've just made that up by the way.

Anyhoo, staying on the love theme - how cute are these?

Sorry I meant to say practical and functional and all those other sensible words.

They are cute though and you can order them to your specific requirements.

These are just a few I ordered.

I had a shuffle around the kitchen and pantry and chose the words I wanted to symbolised and make certain items stand out without stating the really obvious like - the butter is in the butter dish or sugar in the sugar bowl.

Except that is exactly where they are kept........of course. I hope that makes sense?

Anyhoo, on a completely different note - Thank you for all your lovely messages yesterday and sorry for the grumps.

It was so nice to feel that I am not the only one that is 'a little' crabby at the moment with the good old British weather.

I do worry sometimes (and ask myself a lot) if I'm saying the right or wrong things or if I may be a little misconstrued.

Because - I know it's June, I know it can be unpredictable, I know the rain is good for the garden, I know it was glorious in April. I just can't help but get a little carried away sometimes.

Anyway it's not good (or healthy) to be cheery all the time is it? Not for me anyhow. I need a little grumps to get my courage fired up sometimes.

She says shyly with her bottom lip shoved out, head hung low and cheeky little grin flitting across her smile.

I did stay up late last night until the sky had turned an inky black - snuggled on the sofa in the window under a blanket waiting until I could safely say to myself 'it's OK to go to bed now'

Have a beautiful day and I'll take some of that sun if it's still on offer? Just send it special delivery to Tabiboo HQ.


ps. gawd knows what's going on with the font, but 'I give up' trying to mess around with it............for now. N xxx
