Checks & Dogs & Rock n’ Roll

Alfie has just moved into a big boy bed. It was long overdue, but we stalled due to moving and then working out spare sleeping logistics (where to put Nanna when she visits…). But when I noticed he couldn’t roll over without risk of falling out I realised he truly had outgrown his junior nest.

Big School

So… It seems that life has been seriously getting in the way lately. We have entered the second phase of unpacking after our house move, gone through slight rain-induced delirium over these pitiful summer months, and most significantly of all witnessed my eldest baby starting big school!

My Best Book About Me

My Best Book About Me is a baby book with a difference. Created by Swedish illustrator Terese Oman under the label Fill & Tell, these colourful books invite parents and grandparents to tell the real story of those precious first years that make our children who they are.

Made By Morris

So, a little something you need to know… this is Made by Morris.  A stunning range of limited edition silkscreen prints and products, created by designer Claudia Morris.

Hampton Court

Today the sun shone! I have a feeling it shouldn’t be such a novelty in June, but hey ho… So rather than go food shopping I opted to take the boys to the now quite-local-actually Hampton Court Palace.  

Stockholm calling….

  I promised a scandi-post a couple of weeks ago, but it has taken me this long to get organised… Claire, myself and another lovely lass spent a refreshingly sunny weekend in Stockholm visiting a good friend living over there with her gorgeous son and soon-to-be-new-baby.

I Thought I Could…

Our young Alfie has been entirely obsessed with trains since a rainy winter afternoon introduced him to The Polar Express a couple of Christmas’s ago.

Now, I know you have heard of the books, but had you heard of the dvd? It was released several years ago, but I for one had never seen it until it was bought as a present for our two. It’s lovely!
