Hello sunshine!

We are all moved. Exhausted but excited to be in our new family home. Luckily the weather has been amazing this week, a real heatwave to start off Spring and perfect for decamping to our new garden when the house has been too crammed full of boxes to move. So it was rather apt for the lovely Jess to pass on the sunshine award to me. Here are my answers to the sunshine questions:

Favourite colour: Red
Favourite animal: I'm a real animal lover, especially of anything small and rodenty! Though at the moment, I'm pretty in love with badgers. And I best say Guinea Pigs also, otherwise our loyal pets Betty and Beau may get offended!
Favourite non alcoholic drink: Tea. Lots of it.
Facebook or Twitter: I can't work out Twitter to save my life, so it would have to be Facebook, although I find it increasingly irritating!
Favourite number: 9
Favourite day of the week: Sunday fun day.
My passions: My little family, our home, photography, art, dance, music, theatre, food, birds, wildlife, gardening, vintage, bargain hunting, upcycling, daytripping, dressing up, cuddling.
Getting or giving presents: I LOVE giving people presents.Though I quite enjoy receiving them myself also!
Favourite pattern: Eek, l don't think I could pick. I'm generally drawn to anything patterned, and like them all to clash! Stripes, anything geometric, gingham and vintage florals all rate highly.
Favourite flower: Now I REALLY can't pick. I love pretty much all flowers. Flowers make me very happy and my favourites change seasonally. If I had to go on scent, lavender, violet or rose would come out tops.

Happy sunshine days : )

Mother's Day No. 1

My first Mother's Day. The sun was shining and we spent it eating, playing and sat amongst the flowers in the park with my family. A very special celebration of our first six months together. Here's to many, many more days like it. Cheers.

Food, glorious food!

The little bean had her first ever food today. It was VERY exciting. We were waiting for Mothers Day to start, but in the end she just seemed SO ready that I couldn't resist anymore. Banana and pear, the baby-led way. Daddy watched on by Skype. She LOVED it.

Ten weeks in

This week we have:

- loved the spring sunshine
- been a super active bean, wriggling and rolling all over the place
- got our first highchair
- tried to eat EVERYTHING in sight (sooo ready to try food now, can't wait for Daddy to get home so we can!)
- terrorised the poor guinea pigs!
- got VERY bored with all the packing

Happy highchair face, spring skies, guinea pig attack and a stationery geek treat for me (well, if I've got to pack for the move, I'm going to pack prettily)

Sun day

Today was beautiful. We spent it visiting the local farm / dairy / ice-cream parlour, eating Turkish Delight ice-cream and cupcakes and strolling in the afternoon sun. Truly blissful.

It proved to all be a bit too exciting for the little bean by the end of the day. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
