… gorblimey.
How can I pick just one G today when they’re all so gorgeous?

G is for … George, giraffes, garden peas and growing veg.

    Very good Nic! I was wondering what G would be for, I thought maybe greens but you’re far too imaginative for that! Really enjoying this by the way, catching up properly now! x

    me of course!

    I agree with George, as I’ve got one of those too! I’ve been inspired by your blog to start my own….


    and wondered if you’d mind if I did the alphabet thingy too. It’s fine if not, but I love the idea. Made your damson chutney – smelt fab, but not tasted it yet and I’m not a chutney fan. I made it to sell for charity.

    Jas – thanks lovely, always special to receive your comments and know that our friends living far away are sort of nearby none the less.

    G – of course!

    Lynne – good for you, you’ll not be short of inspiration for your posts judging by where you live now and how you spend your time. And husbands called George are very useful for weaving stories (and knowing you have one dedicated reader at least :o)

    Definitely join in the August Alphabet – it’ll be a great way to get into a rhythm with your blogging. Today is H so you could do a combined post for A-G. Check out Chiots Run where the original challenge was posted to see different ways that people are approaching it. And if you let Susy know she’ll had your name to the blogroll of participants. Have fun!

    Looks like you have a glut of ‘G’s!

    • 6. Nip it in the bud  |  August 10, 2011 at 12:44 pm

      a glut I shall never tire of or give away Mal :o)

    Lovely photos! – where do you keep the giraffes by the way ? 😛

  • 8. Janet/Plantaliscious  |  August 10, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Gorgeous Gs. Mind teh Giraffes don’t eat you out of home grown veg…

  • 9. Nip it in the bud  |  August 11, 2011 at 8:30 am

    Joanna – wouldn’t that be fab to live where giraffes could wander up to your veranda to inspect your breakfast! These giraffes are at Cotswold Wildlife Park which is our favourite local place to go and get our big animals fix.

    Janet – thanks, I’d happily share though :o)

    glad you got in some gorgeous green too!

  • 11. Nip it in the bud  |  August 17, 2011 at 5:13 am

    I think I know what you’re G’s would have been {wink}

  • 12. fiona mayhem  |  August 30, 2011 at 10:17 am

    Growing! Of course!

    I will share this one, although my neighbours think I am mad for growing my own – maybe you will realise why when you see my H…

    I love your beautiful pictures in this post, Nic.

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 #gratitude #findingbeauty #celebratingsmallsuccesses #learningtorideabike #beaverscouts 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!
