Love is....

Kissing Rabbits taken by my wonderful fiance and best friend warren x

Still here....

I felt I needed to pop on and say hello, I've been neglecting my blog lately, just busy being a mum, I'm happy if not just a little frayed at the edges.

Our First Ever Camping Trip.

The family picture on the beach at Abersoch.
Yaay, we're camping :)

Map reading is serious business.

We've just got back after a wonderful camping trip in the forest in Snowdonia, North Wales. To say it was our first time, we did brilliantly, the tent went up (of course my very clever Warren put it up!) and despite the very very wet weather we had a wonderful time.

Book Sharing Monday.

Charlie and I have picked a beautiful, simple book that is just perfect to read with daddies especially on fathers day. I love my Daddy by Sebastien Brown.
My daddy feeds me.

My daddy washes me.

I Love My Daddy.

A little time to just be...

I need a few days of peaceful time to gather my thoughts and clear my mind. At the moment our house is full up to the brim with family, for the first time in quite a while all five of the children are at home and as lovely as it may be to have all my family around me its taking its toll on my energy to be honest. I need to find a few moments out of the very busy days to just be calm, read, even if only for a couple of minutes or so, I feel myself stretched in all directions and to take a moment for myself is necessary right now. Its not just the physical aspect that's tiring me its more the mental pulling of so many different needs, ds2 has aspergers and is quite needy right now, dd2 is 15 and going through that kind of rebelliousness but still needing to be a child phase, I've done it before and can do it again I just need to refresh my body and mind....peaceful vibes welcome :)

Today we rescued a baby bird.

Unfortunately one of the horrible drawbacks of having 2 lovely cats is the little presents they feel obliged to bring home as some kind of offering. Woody our ginger tom was 'playing' with this little bird in the garden earlier today, the poor little mite was petrified, it was slightly bedraggled and had a few feathers missing but luckily I spotted him in time and brought him in the house away from the dreaded moggy. Charlie and I made a little nest for him to rest and recover in and left him to recuperate in peace, within a couple of hours he was flapping about and was ready for life in the wild again. We put him under a bush in a nice quiet spot and he seemed happy to venture off.
I do love our cats but I do struggle to deal with their unnecessary hunting at times.

green weekend.

The Green Man.
We went to a nearby town last weekend where they were holding a green festival for the weekend. Charlie was quite scared of the green man but couldnt resist watching him from over my shoulder lol.

Book Share Monday.

This week we'd love to share a brilliant book called ''The Global Garden'' by Kate Petty and Jennie Maizels. This another one of our favourite Eden project books. The global garden is no ordinary book, its a wonderful journey into the world around us and with the use of lots of lifting flaps, turning wheels, and pulling tabs you discover where our food comes from, what plants we cant do without, from seed to pollination to the food and plants we eat.

I think this book is probably aimed at children older than charlie (2 and a half) but we have so much fun reading this together and every time we pick it up charlie seems to spot something new and exciting. Truly a wonderful book :)
