1. Our little Greycat very nearly died this week when he suddenly came down with what we now think was a serious brain injury. Fortunately, he made it back from the brink of euthenasia – albeit expensively, as we didn’t have any insurance!
2. A whole month of lazy summer days with R & Orla. This was taken in nearby village Heptonstall where Sylvia Plath is buried, in a somber and ordinary grave. People often leave pens instead of flowers in tribute, which I sort of love.
3. Unlikely as it sounds interiors journalist Hannah Bullivant came by with photographer Kristy Noble to photograph our home for an interiors magazine. I highly recommend checking out Hannah’s beautiful blog, Seeds and Stitches, co-written with the equally wonderful Davina.
5. As you may have already noticed, I’ve opened up my sidebar for sponsorships with some brilliant small brands & makers.
As a bit of a celebration/thank you, I’d like to give away a 3-month ‘popcorn stand’ slot, worth $48 for free! You can advertise anything you like – your blog, Instagram account, shop, or business – as long as it’s clean, appropriate & right for the Me & Orla readership (i.e. I’m reserving the right to say no to porn or anyone selling pet spiders).
To enter, just visit one of the sponsors on the right, then leave a comment below telling me what your favourite product is.
You can enter once for each brand, if you like, and I’ll pick a winner in 1 week. Any questions, let me know, & best of luck.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely August. Here’s hoping for a sunny September! xx
