A few little links today, hope you enjoy.
- My new beautiful friend Nikki, you might remember her gorgeous face from here, asked me a few questions for her blog Wholefood Mama. It was fun, I procrastinated, I took lots of not quite right photos and changed my mind about recipes a lot and then decided to just do it, so glad I did. Thanks Nikki.
- Not quite Nigella visits Bellingen, have a look at her beautiful visit to town.
- We received a special package in the mail from Cass, some belated birthday gifts. I unwrapped a deliciously colourful and wonderful piece of fabric and Poe was gifted this wonderful book; Miss Rumphis (and a couple of packets of seeds). This book all had us smiling and delighting by the end of it, I highly recommend giving it to everyone, seriously. It has everything; exploring the world, retiring by the see, guerilla gardening and delight. Apparently it is a classic, unfortunately this is the first time I have come across it, our lives are so much richer now we have it in our lives, thanks Cass.
- I have just finished reading Rad Dad, a wonderful, amusing and beautiful book by two fantastic humans who are passionate about their parenting journeys and hearing about others. They have been running this blog for a while now. The book looks at the newborn experience through to childhood and teenagers, there was lots of love, wisdom and humour. I especially loved a couple of stories about that boring and insidiously poisonous act of gender stereotyping, it was touching and beautiful hearing these fathers talk about how they act against it, for themselves and for their children, especially one transgender father who acknowledged how damaging stereotyping had been for him growing up and how determined he was to encourage equality and acceptance in his childs life.
