Stills: A Weekly Collection








1. Smooching my baby at the park.

2. Hand written letters and sweet treasures at my front door. A moment from this wonderful occasion.

3. The pears this season have been so incredibly sweet and deliciously juicy. It's all Dave and I can do to share them with the children.

4. Sometimes I like them when they're all dried up.

5. Having children that dress themselves is both a blessing and a curse. On the bright side, you know, they dress themselves. On the flip side - they throw clothing EVERYWHERE in the process.

6. On the water splatted windowsill above the sink. Spring onion blooms, medicine bottle and champagne cork.

7. Shadows by the front door.

8. Fresh floral pickings atop my Marget Olley memoir. How very fitting. It's a wonderful, wonderful read if you're interested!

Thanks so much to those of you who joined in last week. It was lovely to see life at the beginning of 2014 for you! I'll look forward to popping in again this week :)

  1. Oh my, I totally relate to the Shouty weekend post -- in fact, I just made a resolution tonight that I would take the kids on weekend adventures to friends houses where we would visit and stay over with friends each weekend this February so I don't have to be the Shouty weekend mum (although this might lead to my friends feeling stressed, so I might have to come up with a slightly different plan)

  2. Lovely as always. If it's any consolation the clothes everywhere would be a huge improvement on the state of our house!

  7. Really, spring onions do this??!! How??!! I know that probably sounds really dumb, but do i just give them a trim and put them in water?
    I stopped and stared at the clothes draw photo for a long time. I didn't really 'see' the clothing/mess, 'I have everything I need' is what caught me.
