Happy Mother’s Day. May you be treated royally throughout the day! Thinking of those for whom it’s not such a happy day too. x
Looking out of the window right now it’s hard to believe that we had a snow day this week and that school was cancelled for a day. The toddler took great delight in helping to put food out for our feathered friends, even if the squirrels were more likely to eat it…
We began our few days in London with my brother and sister in law in Kennington, with a visit to the ever brilliant Vauxhall City Farm (I have always been a fan. When you consider that some inner city kids haven’t ever seen a cow, places like this are vital!), followed by a fabulous Portuguese […]
When I think back aeons ago to when I turned thirteen, I remember a strange time full of “just abouts”… Just about old enough to catch the bus in to town to meet friends, just about old enough to make terrible choices in fashion and hair (thanks Mum for letting me go ahead with my […]

You can’t help but endlessly think of food there can you?). The never ending […]
A weekend full of house inspections as we search for our new home. Let’s see whether we can actually come to a decision on any of the 8 houses we saw. Photo taken during the week on a rare sunny day. You really have to make the most of it at the moment…
Mud excavations in the chilly sun this morning. Beautiful day for it!
A slightly different angle to my “Sunday Photo” this week… Isn’t the roof of Kings Cross beautiful? I have never actually noticed before. As is the roof of Waterloo, under which I must have spent thousands of hours over the years, staring up at the boards, waiting for that all platform number to flicker into […]
