him and her {week four}


he loves pretending to be a baby when he's wrapped in a towel after bath time,
keeps offering to hold his little sister's hand so they can dance together,
and seems to be permanently hungry at the moment for the first time in his life.


she sings an amazing mash-up of 'Dingle Dangle Scarecrow' and 'Miss Polly Had A Dolly',
thinks that every meal should finish with a mini Cadbury's Creme Egg,
and has just about the cheekiest face I think I've ever seen.

the swedish interiors boutique {52 adventures}


Adventures, and life in general really, is all in the way you look at things. A trip to the shop might not seem like an adventure to many, but everything is an adventure when you are 3 and 2, and to be honest, a little trip to my favourite swedish interiors boutique is always an adventure in my mind. And Rich wanted me to call this post "the great meatball adventure" so clearly IKEA really does have something for everyone. I did stop short of calling the adventure that... mainly because we were too busy eating said meatballs to remember to take photos of that part of the adventure.

a little piece of heaven


Time alone as a couple becomes really priceless when you have children. Between dealing with the wants and needs of two young children, work commitments and the general chaos of life; Rich and I have to really grab any opportunity for some valuable "us time" with both hands. Last year we celebrated my 30th birthday and our fifth wedding anniversary with two lovely nights away and having never really been 'mini-breakers' before that, we are now total converts to the beauty of a night away from reality just remembering what came before the children... us.
