Beautiful stuff (well, apart from our sweet Olive)

A gorgeous & thoughtful gift from a blogging friend, one exhausted & happy Bean, green fingernails ("like frogs Mumma") and the fact that we're seriously contemplating a tree change...

What beautiful things are happening for you?

Bringing Joy

Flowers from dear friends, a Crusty Demon Bean, Olive's darling little fingers (we've taken to calling Liv 'Olive'...in a way it goes with 'Bean')...and the special picture Bean drew for Liv and stuck next to her cot.  Things bringing me joy at the moment.

Bean & Mummy time...

The Bean loved her rainy day adventures this week.  Puddles & snails - it was very refreshing after the hot weather I must say.  I need to get myself some gumboots...Bean insisted I wear her Dad's boots instead (see above...I'm not a fan).
Have a great weekend everyone.
