me and mine {May family portrait}

Before the sadness of the last few weeks unfolded we celebrated the joyful occasion of G’s sister’s wedding.  E was a dapper page boy, G chief usher and I was chief toddler chaser.  E was a star and had mastered walking just in time to toddle down the aisle after Aunty Catherine.  It was a wet day and the lure of the puddles afterwards was too great to resist: step, step, giggle, wobble, splat, ooops soaked.  wedding 11-5-13

I didn’t get a chance to take any photos of the 3 of us all scrubbed up – fortunately someone else took this one, just before E’s puddle encounter.  And after dinner I finally had free hands to take some snaps of E with Daddy and Great Grandpa George (E rocking the waistcoat with his cords and t-shirt – such a dude). I would have liked to include a pic of the gorgeous bride and groom but they haven’t got any photos through yet either!11-5-13 - Catherine's wedding_G and E 4B11-5-13 - Catherine's wedding_grandpa George, G and E 4B

    That looks like a pretty cool waistcoat. Can imagine it was a lovely sight to see him toddling down the aisle : )

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
