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.

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
