singing in the rain

Rain. Lots and lots of it.
Poor G got the short straw in the ”I’ll be grumpy if I go out/I’ll be grumpy if I stay in” conversation. So off we went to walk the walk that should have been on New Years Day. We saw lots of bedraggled dog walkers and even another family with a toddler. E had a fabulous time running through the leaves and playing peek-a-boo behind trees. No amount of rain could dampen the joy we felt watching him – talk about chasing the grumps away.Back in the car we warmed up with hot tea from our great new OXO Good Grips liquiSeal™ travel mug.  It has a simple click button for opening and closing the spout which E loved and mastered immediately. The triple-seal leakproof lid keeps every drop contained (doesn’t guarantee against wearing your tea if tipped too quickly when drinking from it for the first time!). The outer casing is shatterproof (perfect for letting a toddler loose with) and the inner casing plastic so it doesn’t taint the drinks like metal flasks mug
Disclosure: we were sent this mug as a Christmas gift by Oxo. No review was requested. All opinions expressed are my own.

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
