Glorious summer afternoon in Little Venice after theatre show @puppetbarge that we absolutely loved - Nina narrated most of it to us as it was unfolding before our eyes, it was the most adorable and hilarious thing ever to see her so excited. I wonder where she takes it from 😘
Go check it out - The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse - it's a brilliant puppet show for little and big ones alike. On a boat, on the canal.
And a kaleidoscope of colours on canal walks, wearing green, following blue, counting rainbows and drinking ice tea.
Wondrous day at the beach and road trip through the Dorset coast - all weathers and some epic skies and scenery. My little seahorse loves the water, rain or shine.
Boscombe beach in Bournemouth, South Beach in Studland, Sandbanks in Poole and Old Harry Rocks 💙
We met early 2000s on a mIRC philosophy channel and became online friends for years, until one day 15 years ago we decided to meet. We knew, that summer morning at the train station, as we finally walked towards each other, we knew right then and there ❤️
I'm proper chuffed with how these turned out. Rescued toddler chair and coffee table, cut to size, and leftover paint from previous projects (I even had to mix some to create the light blue I wanted). Didn't spend a single penny! Love a thrifty makeover.
She'll absolutely lose it when she sees her new desk tomorrow morning!! Working from home in style, eh?

I'm just so happy with how this turned out - it's got to be my biggest crochet item yet (complete, that is, cos big projects in the making I've got a few 😁)
This was made while binge watching Motherland, The Pact, Mare of Easttown and Bosch. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nina for being a great sleeper still and letting us spend such great evenings as parents 😘
Brilliant, fun, super clear, adjustable and versatile pattern from @iron_lamb. I love tweaking to fit my own style and body. Next up - the cardigan version - although both Nina and Lucian want a matching #grannygoroundjumper 😉

What a mesmeric experience, Curiouser and Curiouser @vamuseum. Words cannot describe how much muchness this is.
Plus there's a glorious paddling pool in the museum's garden that made the whole day even more delightfully surreal.

A week into the new job and I'm counting my blessings ~ so chuffed to have had so much work and such great opportunities as graphic designer coming out of mat leave and throughout this pandemic, to have worked pretty much entirely from home and thus seen my baby as she learned to walk and talk. Yes, it's bonkers and I'm knackered, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
Leftover snaps from an epic road trip in the Cotswolds, including the obligatory fields of gold, cow parsley announcing summer, the insane Bliss Tweed Mill (that is now apartments, boo) in Chipping Norton, sunset from the shepherd's hut and walking the hills and the woods.

Happy children's day to my little raver and all the little ravers out there. May they continue to play, laugh and dance even when they grow up, demand ice cream as meal and claim the big bed as their own.
The fabulous Castle Combe, a game of croquet (plus lots of other Alice in Wonderland bits) and that postcard picture you want to grab of the village and the bridge but it's packed full of people and no queueing system for savvy Instagrammers 🤭
