The biggest change is that Wilf has started school and Anwen has started her two mornings at a nursery. They're both loving it and coming back with tales of things they've seen and done each day. Wilf's accounts of playground adventures over dinner each evening have had Sam and I scoffing, trying not to spray food over the table as we stifle laughs. "We all closed our eyes and punched each other" up there with things we weren't expecting to hear.
Anwen has chosen to surprise us with sayings at other unsuspecting moments. Like when the allotment secretary popped by last week and she asked to smell her pink lipstick and then informed her "Daddy got a willy." I laughed it off heartily obviously, whilst cringing and hoping she hadn't made out the very.clear.intonation of my two and half year old.
Sam was the best man to two very special friends and I was honoured to help with flowers and gatecrash the top table (albeit with invitation). Apart from a stubborn white owl who refused to fly the rings down the aisle(!), the day went without a hitch and we danced late into the night.
I've caught myself on a number of occasions recently rushing completely needlessly. Whether it's because I haven't brushed off the school run rush (always) or because I'm always just late for things (probable) but I'm trying to remind myself to just.slow.down a bit more.
Here are just a few of the gorgeous photos that caught my eye in the gallery last month.
I'm delighted to announce some more very exciting news in that we have made a perfect partnership for the cosy month ahead. Carolyn Carter is joining us in celebrating breaktimes and I couldn't be more delighted.
I discovered Carolyn's work through instagram and have fallen for her paired back style and the beautiful craftsmanship in her knitted work. You can find her full range in her shop here.
