a visit from the kindness elves

Kindness ElvesE was greeted by these lovely little fellas when he woke up this morning. He’d received a Christmas Card from the Kindness Elves yesterday heralding their imminent arrival and was thrilled to find them waiting in their little house for him this morning. The Kindness Elves have come to share the magic of Christmas and to see if E is as kind and helpful as they’ve heard. Each day they’ll be waiting in a new place in the house with a suggestion for an act of kindness E can help them to carry out.

A rather lovely result from Day 1’s kind deed (which you’ll have to wait until morning to see as my camera just loves the sparkly lights on the Christmas tree too much!).12-12-15 - christmas tree lights 4B
Anna at The Imagination Tree came up with the idea of the Kindness Elves a few years ago and made them available to buy for the first time this year and has all sorts of kind deeds suggestions to help you on your way. You could use any doll or cuddly you already have at home to spread some festive love and magic.

NOURISH for #mindfulapril with @mamas_scrapbook - a scrambled egg start to my day. A carb heavy diet makes me lethargic and effects my mood so this sets me off on the right foot. Toddler L also loves it and it eases my mind about what else he eats in the day if I know he's had a good breakfast. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
GROWTH - day 18 of #mindfulapril. One son the size of an emperor penguin and one the size of a Gremlin! #gloucesterlife thebudblog #glou
Obsessed with anything with wheels, I turn round to see Luca has nabbed someone's scooter at the park and is legging it! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #scootingtoddler
Well this has been interesting! After a conversation with @pocketfulofconkers I did a Myers Briggs personality test and it seems to be pretty accurate (ISFJ 'Defender'). Do you know your personality type? How has it helped you to understand yourself or the challenges you have with others? #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #myersbriggspersonalitytype
BREATHE - day 17 of #mindfulapril. 6 years old and so happy to be doing this for the first time. His nearly 2 year old brother would try it right now if only he could reach! I'm definitely go to have to learn to pause and breathe when he's bigger. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #mumbloggeruk
#mindfulapril day 16 - LIGHT. Luca, our little "bringer of light" bored of life on the outside when he was just a day old. Crazy to think he'll be two in just over a week. He brings us so much joy but is also a good metaphor for accepting the shadows that come with the light (aka he's a right monkey!) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #lucabringeroflight
Missing this fella now he's back at school today. We'd happily go to @wwtslimbridge every day if we home schooled! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #loveglos #slimbridgewwt #outdoorexplorers #mumbloggeruk
With Es return to school this morning, on a walk that saw our usual route closed off because of a fatal stabbing, I can't help but reflect on what kind of world he's growing up in. Creativity is so important to becoming who you're meant to be and when you're comfortable in your own skin kindness to others comes more easily. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #creativekids #soulgrowing #newblogpost
The perfect cake for sneaking veg into! Courgette chocolate cake on the blog #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #courgettechocolatecake
This week's #myheartylife post is now up on the blog. The second week of the holidays brought with it fun outside despite the rain at our favourite bird park @wwtslimbridge and our local @stjamescityfarm #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gratefuleveryday🙏
#mindfulapril combining days 14 and 15 with TREASURE and SLOW. Es favourite pastime is making Lego and i love how time seems to stand still for him when he's working on something. When I sit with him and join in it's fab because we're connecting over something he loves, the pace is slow, we sometimes talk but we mostly create in companionable silence. Luca is old enough now to try and join in or occupy himself pulling out every other toy in the room. Who cares if the house is a mess when this sort of creativity and connection is unfolding. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #zeroplansday #mumbloggeruk #welovelego
"Happy as a pig in muck" was Luca yesterday at @stjamescityfarm trying to push a wheelbarrow! Will have to put him to work as a volunteer when he's older 😁 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #helpfultoddlers
