bring me sunshine

Bring me sunshine in your smile, bring me laughter all the while
In this world where we live there should be more happiness
So much joy you can give, to each brand new bright tomorrow
Make me happy, through the years, never bring me any tears
Let your arms be as warm as the sun from above
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love!

    Did you have a mouse on your head?

    (Not sure if bare arms was a sensible idea)

    Love it! We had a tortie and a black cat who looked very similar to your two – happy memories.

    what a gorgeous photo – how did you get three cats to stay still for it!

    (Had to get E to sing the song for me because I don’t know it)

    Ann – I’m pleased to hear it :o)

    Mal – they were primed with cat treats first! Mikey doesn’t look impressed does he – the indignity of it all!

    Anita – one of you with Sammy coming my way?

    Dad – oh you did :o) sunshine on a grey day that cheered me from the tips of my ears to the ends of my toes x

    allotofveg – it’s always lovely to be reminded of our little beasties. Glad it evoked happy memories for you

    Johanna – I set the camera to burst and took about 20 snaps in a few seconds. Believe me they struggled to get down and hunt out the cat treats they’d been enticed with!

    What a gorgeous photograph of a handsome man (and the kitties too). Thank you for sharing him with us.

    Hope your well Nic x

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!
