Stills: A Weekly Collection



1. Zeph and Pip made a car for Elke before whizzing her around the house. This marked the first time they had played together, all three of them.

2. Spring light at dusk.

3. We've been going bonkers in the garden of late and Dave has been going bonkers with the 'Diggers', always ordering more green stuff. 

4. My mum came over on Friday to give me a hand around the house. She folded ALL of my washing, totalling about 7 loads and then proceeded to Iron stuff, including THE PILLOW SLIPS??!!! The lady is crazy.

5. Our brand new, totally amazing smoke detector that doesn't freak out at the smell of burn toast. Plus, it's decidedly less ugly that the alternatives. Consider this a recommendation. 

6. Thats my guy. Dave ducked out to the local Men's Shed garage sale and came back with these beauties. Look at him making not one but two purchases in one week. So unlike him. In other new, I do believe he'll be buying some pigs asap - christmas pork, anyone?

7. Warm evenings = little toes escaping from their wrap.

8. Oregano hanging from the kitchen window.

  1. I used to whizz my Sunny around the house in her nappy boxes too! That just brought back her baby days for me :) Your house looks a little like mine with herbs hanging from hooks.

  2. How awesome are mums?! Mine has done a lot of my ironing since I had my third baby. I'm sure I'll get back on too if things any day now. (She's 10 months old!!)

  8. I like the two sides of Dad back-to-back: the manly tools made of iron and his soft, cuddling arms around the babe. Great shots.

  10. You've gotta love a baby in a box, and yours is a cute one at that! I often pop Millie in the washing basket and she loves hanging out in there. It amuses her for a good 2 minutes while I try and fold the washing. I hope your week is a beautiful one Em. Melinda x

  14. Those tools Dave purchased look beautiful … my grandad was a carpenter, so I have a soft spot for old tools. And Miss Elke is such a little darling, she'll be running around with her siblings in no time.
