“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This week I’ve finally been brave enough to trial soya. And it failed because Pixie was poorly, and therefore when Elfin had nigh on identical symptoms it was impossible for us to be certain of the cause. So she didn’t necessarily fail the  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran It was Pixie’s birthday this week. I can’t believe I’m the mother of a three year old – it makes me feel so old! (I also can’t believe I’m mother to not one but two children. That’s insane. And makes me feel  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran I love this photo. It was taken during our weekly meet up with my dad, Pixie’s grandad, at our local petting farm. They’ve recently made lots of changes, most notably the installation of this crazy golf course which Pixie loves. I think this  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran We had such a lovely weekend. On Saturday Pixie had her first proper birthday party (which I’ll be reviewing soon!) which was lovely. And best of all it was mostly stress-free, apart from a small (okay, b-i-g) mix up with the cake… On Sunday  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This first image was taken – as ever – at our local RHS centre. Pixie is so interested when it comes to creatures, and we’ve tried hard to encourage that curiosity – and not to let our (my) own anxiety of insects and outright  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran On Sunday we went to a local petting farm (a different one to lay week) and they have an area filled with beautiful butterflies. (Does such an enclosure have a special name??) This beautiful butterfly took a bit of a shine to my hubby and wouldn’t  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This weekend hubby and I went to collect our new car. We knew Pixie would be bored to tears if she had to come for the 90 minute journey (each way), so we planned for her to stay overnight with her grandparents. She was returned to us on Sunday morning  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran Last week I was fortunate enough to go on a press trip as a representative of BritMums, and I took the fam along to enjoy the day. Here we are at House of Vans – which is awesome by the way. I’ve written about the totally cool and eclectic  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran While I’m obviously snap-happy myself, like many families we seem to capture very few images of me with the children. On this occasion I specifically asked hubby to take a shot while we were having a snug on a lazy Sunday afternoon. At first glance  ...

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran This photo makes my heart hurt, in a good way! It’s been a tough couple of weeks because we’ve unknowingly been dealing with a dairy allergy. Poor little Elfin has been really suffering, and of course her only way of letting us know has been  ...
