Things I'm loving at the moment...

Getting lost in the woods on purpose...


 After dinner walks...




The prickly side of nature (from a distance)...


Long shadows cast by the golden light before sunset...


Still smiling in the face of epic tantrums...

From playing poo sticks to tree climbing...
(because who doesn't like that?)

 Full marble jars...

 Isaac gets a marble in the jar for good behaviour (not hitting his little brother being gentle, tidying toys etc...) Once the jar is full he gets a new toy.


Our growing veg patch...

Flowers in general...



What ever kind they may be...


Our beautiful brand new Nephew... (I'm not broody, I'm not broody...)


 I've even made peace with the weather. Right after I ranted about our English Summer we had a little heat wave. It was probably seconds after I clicked publish *damn you weather Gods*...

In typical English weather fashion a heat wave equals a very hot day or 2 where the shops run empty of BBQ supplies, men of all shapes and sizes stroll around with their shirts off and everyone nurses their sunburn for days to come.

We are now back to can't make your mind up weather with some sunshine, threatening but doesn't deliver thunderstorm type clouds and lots of showers. I'm actually kind of enjoying it...

Which probably means it will immediately change to something else...

I will find a puddle to jump in, I will!

  2. I'm loving you smiling in the face of epic tantrums:) And those sweet little faces of the tantrum throwers.
    But poo sticks? I'm hoping it's something lost in translation...
