This afternoon DS, the dog and I managed a trip to the park ... in between the heavy showers we'd had all day. A lot of the cherry blossom is now on the paths, rather than on the trees, but in a way it still looks beautiful - it reminded me of confetti.
DS has realised that he can put his shaped blocks into the holes they are meant to go in on his Libby Ladybird toy. At the moment he is trying to put all the blocks through the round hole but has also realised that the circular block will fit inside the cardboard tube from a … Continue reading Shapes and Sizes
Weather wise, it's been a funny old day - rain, chilly wind & sunshine - but the park is beginning to look its very best. Mr Heron is still on the pond, so he obviously hasn't eaten all the fish yet!
The things that grow in our garden that aren't weeds have to learn early on how to survive with very little attention from us!

It was only a matter of time ... DS has been fascinated by the wine rack in the kitchen for a few weeks now. He usually can't get to it because I have his highchair rammed in front of it ... however, this afternoon he squeezed through a gap & had a lovely time playing … Continue reading Like Father, Like Son

Shimelle's There's No Place Like Home finishes tomorrow (although I suspect it will be next week before I am ready to bind my book and consider it "done"!) and she has already got something else organised through her blog & UKS - photographing your day every 25th of the month for a whole year. There's … Continue reading More From Shimelle
The sun came out this afternoon so once DS was up from his nap I decided to take him & the dog to the park. As luck would have it, DH arrived home just as we were ready to leave. We must have looked an odd pairing - me in cords, trainers & my beginning-to-look-lived-in-Barbour … Continue reading Spring Has Sprung…
... was good to me today. He brought me the latest edition of Scrapbook Inspirations magazine, a CJ on 1972 & a gorgeous little book from the Black & White with a Pink Accent BIA Swap over on UKS.
Shimelle's There's No Place Like Home class ends this coming Friday, after a whopping 5 weeks. What I've liked most is the ability to not do a particular prompt and know that it won't affect the end outcome.
