Guest post by Mikey Moorey
The paw’s been on the other foot this week as we’ve all been taking care of mum.   As chief body warmer and pain distractor I take full credit for the return of her pink cheeks and appetite (licking out soup bowls hasn’t been much fun for me either so I I share her pain).  Mum says she’s very grateful for plump pillows, BBC Iplayer and the miracle of modern medicine.   I’m grateful she’s on the mend as I don’t like being beaten at my own sleep game and want to be let out.  Mum’s had that wistful look in her eye for sunshine, fresh air and mud under her nails and I know just how she feels.

    mikey is truly lovely – just the beast to aid a speedy recovery – so soft and gentle when he’s all sleepy and dozy and not pretending to be king of the neighbourhood or terrorising his lovely siblings – poppet the bedtime buddy and billy the movie lap cat

    So sory to hear that you haven’t been well Nic, and hope you are on the mend now. Aren’t cats just the most comforting companions? They seem to know when we need that little bit of extra love and attention.

    Get well soon Nic, cat’s make excellent companions for invalids and I’m sure Mikey is enjoying his nursing job.

Fresh from the oven.  Can you smell it?  Happy Saturday everyone x
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #easypeasylemoncake Fondly thinking of my Nan as I mix up the lemon cake batter with L.  When I baked with her as a child we sometimes used a wooden spoon for mixing but I was in awe of the hand held whisk with the handle that seemed so miraculous.  I love that @oxouk have a modern day version for mornings when our slow pace doesn't want to be interrupted by the whirr of machinery #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #bakingwithkids #childhoodunplugged #slowsaturdays #lovedungarees Trying to decide whether to make lemon cake or these beetroot and chocolate muffins.  I guess the boys will determine that as I've all the ingredients for one but not the other! Love having an on-line cookbook to browse through in my blog.  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #beetrootandchocolatemuffins #bakingwithkids #flashbackfriday here you go @cathy.heller my 2.5 year old self saying Hi to your 6 year old self!  My love of gardening must have started at a young age.  I'm pleased to say I get most of the water on the plants these days! 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #throwbackphotos #gardeningwithkids #70skid Writing clears my head. I write the words it's too scary to mutter.  Sharing the words is scary too but in the sharing comes the feeling of being less alone in it.  I dumped these words in a blog post 3 years ago.  Time to let them fly and find someone who might be having a hard time today. Link to "how it feels sometimes parenting a 3 year old" in bio.  Much love x #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #parentingistough #writingastherapy #newblogpost #gentleparenting Thanks Anna @imaginationtree for this brilliant toddler activity idea.  23 month old Luca filling up muffin tins with balls using our fab easygrip @oxouk tongs #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #thelennyagency Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey -  Alice White & George Shilling in action a few hours ago for session 6 of #spacesgloucester  @gloucestercathedral #nationallotteryfunded Luca and I discovered the most amazing place in town today.  A beautiful craft space where you pay £4 to make anything from beautiful beaded canvases to painted ornaments to mosaic door signs.  What a peaceful way to spend an hour making a canvas for the boys.  Luca helped too, mostly by bimbling about picking up pots of beads and letters. If you're in Gloucester you must check out @kftreasureseekers .  Open daily including Saturdays and available for parties.  We'll definitely be back! 
#gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #makeandtake #kftreasureseekers #craftingwithkids In this crazy world of technology and social media I hope my boys don't ever find letter writing and parcel post to be the stuff of history books.  You can't beat a little postal surprise and love letter.  This fab book is on it's way to the boys cousin :0)
