23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_blackberries in bowl 4BIt was a bit too early for blackberries when we went foraging last month but we were itching to try the new Oxo Good Grips 3 piece berry bowl and colander set our friends at OXO sent to us.  Our meagre blackberry pickings were topped up with damsons found at my childhood park.23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_damsons and blackberries 4B
E played with Nana while I went picking then ate most of the blackberries I found!

Some of the blackberries made it home (safely stored in our bowl with it’s clear lid) and we boiled them up with the damsons and an apple to make cordial.
Totally delicious!

The third piece of the berry bowl set is a colander that sits neatly inside the bowl and has long slits for faster drainage. E tested it for strength and style and it passed with flying colours on both counts.Collage - berry bowl 4B

Next we shelled peas.  Not allotment grown sadly but delicious and a lovely way to pass the time on a grey day. 23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_shelling peas 4B23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_shelling peas profile 4B
Finally it made a terrific container for E’s treasure from his walk in the gardens with it’s non-slip base, durable plastic and attractive two-tone colour. We’ve come to expect nothing less from the Good Grips range.Collage - Oxo bowl_conkers 4B

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog

Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
