We wriggled Florence into her new pinny dress and she happily continued about her business of chewing the jigsaw pieces.  I think that means she liked it (actually I know she did – she hacked her mum’s facebook account to send me a thank you.  She’s a very clever girl you know!).

Do you like the picture?  It was created with an ace free application called ‘Poladroid‘.  When you download it the ‘Poladroid’ camera appears on your desktop and you simply drag and drop your chosen image onto it.  Like the old style camera the picture takes time to develop and the camera makes all the whirrs and clicks you’d expect from the real thing.  Brilliantly simple and quirky and a big thanks to Petchy for sharing it.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
