N is for … noodle doodle

… nicknames.
I don’t recall when G first called me Nic Noodle. Or Noodle Doodle.  Or Winkle. .Or Doris.
Or more recently, and said with great affection I assure you, Hippopotowhale (I’ll explain that one another time!).  I always thought nicknames were taunting and unkind having spent years as a child being called knickers (thank goodness that one stayed in the primary school playground!). It’s entirely different when a loved one chooses a name for you and there are always smiles and laughter when G creates or uses a new one.

Do you have any nicknames?
(you only have to share the smile cracking ones)

    Nice – bit like your L is for lovely post – I use it to describe a certain someone far too much. This alphabet series has made me realise how little control of the English language I have these days!

    […] pregnant. Which explains the lack of gardening, cooking and blogging (and G’s new nickname). 20 weeks today   baby apparently the length of a banana from head to […]

    naughty – something I often am – much to Nic’s amusement

    This one is hard.

    I have a few friends that call me Kick Arse, although not for bad reasons, but another friend has the same name and she was nicknamed fluffy, they wanted to differentiate, and at the time I did martial arts! I suppose these days my nickname is Fiona Mayhem. I like your nicknames better.

    My N will have to befor new. I have been trying a lot of new recipes, and cooking techniques. I am also looking for pastures new, having decided to quit my job.

      so you’re the friend to have close to hand when walking down dark alleys {wink}.
      All the best with the new career direction

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
