love heals

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

    Awww (((HUGS))) to both of you. I hope you are feeling better and give that lovely boy a special tickly stroke from me 🙂

    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.

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
