N is for …

… 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

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!
