#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!
