Category Archives: The Girl


I definitely need this candle holder… 

We were visiting friends in Brighton today. Three of us have had birthdays recently, so the Girl worked her bakery magic.


We’ve had a day of bumps and bruises. 

It’s been a while, so I guess we were due. 

The Boy bumped his head, near his eye. Possible photos tomorrow depending on how dramatic it looks. 

The Girl did a fabulous number on her big toe. She managed to split it open on a metal floor divider. No explicit photos of the toe in question, but we definitely need a better stocked first aid kit… 



She is running out of small places to play. Shame, she does like them… 


For a while, anyway. I miss this space when I’m not here. 

The girl, here prettifying her new bicycle. 


“Oh no,” she said, “I won’t go into the sea and get my trainers soaked.”


Even when she’s dizzy from too many cartwheels she looks elegant. 


He can be very patient when he fancies it… 

In Bath

Not actually in a bath, but visiting Bath. 

More specifically, visiting one of my lovely sisters, in Bath. 

Is been way too long since we’ve been together, so it seemed like a good idea to do some making. 

We made a bed… 

Then we made my children play outside in her amazing “garden” (basically a field outside their house, the lucky ducks). 

I failed to catch pictures of her children, so we’ll just have to visit a bit sooner next time. 

Happy Red Nose Day

I love this pair. They are so set in their roles – the serious one and the joker – until they decide to switch…
