    Mmmmmmmmmm. Billy boy enjoying the sunshine!

    Hope they all gave you a big HUG on your return from your hols!

    That’s the way to cope with this weirdly summery weather – much better than what I came up with yesterday, namely heaving broken bits of slab around to create paths…

    I love the way cats can sleep anywhere!

    Those claws on his left paw mean business. That’s his way of saying: “Don’t disturb my nap!”

    Hazel – even returning at 4am didn’t deter them from flying down the stairs to greet us. All 3 curled up on the bed that night.

    Janet – ouch, sounds back breaking. We could all do with being a bit more cat like!

    Mrs Pao – you comment reminds me of a poem by Eleanor Farjeon

    Cats sleep anywhere,
    any table, any chair.
    Top of piano, window-ledge,
    in the middle, on the edge.
    Open draw, empty shoe,
    anybody’s lap will do.
    Fitted in a cardboard box,
    in the cupboard with your frocks.
    Anywhere! They don’t care!
    Cats sleep anywhere.

    Tom – he loves his tummy being tickled but there’s a fine line between bliss and aggravation and that’s when the claws have an outing. Bless him, he pulls his punches though. Or perhaps it just feels that way because he has so much fluff coming from his pads through his claws!

Weekly reflections on #myheartylife - feeling thankful for passed on sewing skills, practicing self-care and finding beauty in learning to ride a bike.  More on the blog, link in bio.  Thanks for reading 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!
