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!

    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

One of our favourite annual traditions in Gloucester - the lantern procession through the city to @gloscathedral. It gets bigger and better each year with amazing creations from school children and community groups.
Technology saves the day - G googled this while stood in @sainsburys with E feeling minifigures packets. Successfully identified the two that he wanted (double win as series 18 are £1.50 at the moment so he unexpectedly got 2 for his hard earned £3)
Bus number 2, hanging out up the back this time. Luca succumbed to bus-itus and is sleeping blissfully :0) @stagecoach_bus
Woohoo, this boy is practically flying off his seat with excitement at being on the front seat at the top of the bus! @stagecoach_bus
We live in a street of HMOs where tenants come and go and we are in the only family home. We miss the neighbourly-ness we see friends have in their streets. But when it matters the kindness of strangers comes through. We found a note on our car this morning from someone who had witnessed a bus crunch into our car early this morning and drive off. I've no idea how the driver plans to explain away chunks of paint missing from the bumper (fragments of which are now in Gs pocket as he walks round to the bus depot to ask them to investigate).
Happy Friyay dear ones. I'm putting a skip in my step by wearing my fab Happy Days top from @thismumindevon . Never fails to lift my mood. Sending you all love and light to get you to the weekend.
Euan's favourite story books are the "Dogman" series by @petey_haw_haw. He loves the comic strip style and sense of humour and the "how to" guides at the back for drawing the characters. Es teacher was telling us how the school are going to buy some comic strip books to encourage the reluctant writers in his class. E was quick to lend her one of his books to read complete with a hand made Dogman book mark. I reckon they could inspire reluctance drawers too. #6yearoldartist #dogmanfan #childhoodunplugged
And here he is! Keeping a somewhat serene pace on the pavement (versus super speed at the park). 2.5 year old L on a @3stylescooters sized for 7+ years. He's the bomb! #scooterkids #scootingtoddler
Joy summed up. Little brother sneaking a ride on big brothers @3stylescooters wheels after school drop off
Luca enjoying hugs with "Nana bear". A beautiful momento made from one of Mum's shirts by the @sueryderleckhampton sewing group. They give their time freely to make the bears in exchange for a donation to the charity. They made two bears from one shirt and the other is providing comfort to my Niece in Germany 💕
So this has become our after dinner thing - "park in the dark" with scooters. We love Es @3stylescooters with light up wheels
We love our @nationaltrust membership for fab days out. These two love their binoculars which you get free when you sign up (thank you for our second pair to ease the pain of trying to share when you're two and think everything belongs to you). Our top NT pick this month is @ntcroome , perfect easy afternoon out from Gloucestershire or a pitstop near Worcester just off the M5
