(An update) plus have you heard about

...Pinkrain? I love the quirky illustrations, and those geometric brooches are definitely on my wish list now! See more here.

And finally, a quick update since I have been awol for a while. There have been loads of things going on in the Hello Olive household lately. We've taken the plunge and are moving to the burbs. Gulp. That means leaving the vibey city behind but we get our own garden (yippee) and most importantly we are in a catchment area for a very good school for The Toddler. It has been so stressful finding a place to live as lots of families move to the suburbs for schools, so there is loads of competition for rental properties. (I know this is problem everywhere these days.) 

But thank goodness, our search is over. Now the fun bit - packing. Eek, we still have boxes we haven't unpacked from our move from Scotland TWO years ago! (The joys of a small flat with virtually no storage.) Luckily we have a couple of months to sort everything out before we have to pack up and leave. 

And in other news, Caroline of Scraps Of Us has given me a Liebster Award! Thanks Caroline, your blog is one of my faves so I really appreciate it :-) If you haven't already discovered Scraps Of Us go check it out now - Caroline takes the most amazing photos!

Anyhoo, that's my news. Hopefully now that things have calmed down a bit I'll get my blogging mojo back :-)

    1. We have a lovely large communal garden here but it'll be lovely having a place for The Toddler to be free (and not have me loitering in the background)! x

  9. Congrats on the move and the Liebster award! I hadn't heard of pinkrain, nice stuff though - especially the brooch and the hug print. Very cute. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who leaves boxes unpacked. We moved 3 years ago and still haven't hung up some pics or unpacked a few boxes. Woops! Carla :)

  11. After 4 moves in 3 years I though maybe I would go fully MAD. Having settled now we have just started unpacking boxes from 4 years ago. Kind of fun really. Good luck, sending you hugs and happy moving vibes!
    happiness...
