We've been over to Maidenhead again this morning and, sadly, the weather was appalling, which meant indoor play for DS until nearly lunch time. Once he'd realised that the pouring rain had stopped, he was into his coat and wellies in a flash and straight out of the door, like a boy possessed!Here you can … Continue reading Snapshot Sunday
I'm loving the photo of DS checking out the lit pumpkin and I'm also loving how my first carved pumpkin turned out! Oh, and how many Trick or Treaters did we get? Not a single one, which DH approves of because he can now eat the chocolate!
So here they are ... my first ever carved pumpkin and DS's pretty fabby Halloween card. I know that my pumpkin won't be a patch on the one(s) produced by my BIL and nephew, but they've had more years to practice!
DS made a brilliant Halloween card at nursery on Wednesday (you'll be able to see it here tomorrow), so DH and I decided that this year we would get a pumpkin and have a go at some carving. Would you believe me if I told you that the supermarket only had 3 left? It's true. … Continue reading DS And The Pumpkin

This afternoon on the Common, partially hidden behind the Circus, were these guys. Our area of West London is often used by film crews so it's nothing out of the ordinary to see stuff set up in areas you wouldn't expect. I couldn't see anyone famous, so using the pup as bait, we edged a … Continue reading Commercials On The Common
DS woke up from his 2 hour nap a different child! But I should add that he woke up just as I published the previous post ... no 40 winks for me! He wanted to go the the park, which is generic for him, he means outside, so I saddled up the pup and we … Continue reading Normal Service Is Resumed
... is just before dawn. You may recognise that line from the Mamas & Papas song "Dedicated To The One I Love" but, in this case it refers to last night in this house. Poor DS seems to have picked up the nasty cough that DH and I have been struggling with these last few … Continue reading And The Darkest Hour …
It's time for a sneak peek at this Saturday's Pink Saturday GiveAway: another concertina mini-book, decorated for Christmas. If you'd like the opportunity to win this, all you have to do is drop back again on Saturday and leave a comment.
I took the pooch out for his morning constitutional earlier and look who we found setting up shop on the Common. They visit twice a year and usually stay for 10 days to a fortnight. We like them because they never cause any trouble and always leave the Common in a spotless condition, unlike the … Continue reading Visitors On The Common
