I know, I'm a bad blogger

Things have been stressful! I'm working on it.
Anyway, to lift your (and my) spirits, here is an amazing villa for rent on the island of Koh Samui as pointed out by my roommate Ms R. She has plans to visit there this time next year (and didn't invite me!) and I'm trying to talk the boy into a visit with his mates. You'll understand why when you see the photos, I promise!

The Swing of Things

Stunning! Inspired by the falling leaves of Autumn, MutDesign's Leaf Swing is a beautiful mix of adult and child, innocence and fragility and steel. It's made from a laminated material, and is now also available in a hammock and self standing swing version.
