Happy Mother's Day!

Oh, such a lovely day. Playing in the park, basking in the dappled light, noshing out on sushi, painting fingernails with my daughter and being fiercely squeezed by my son. (He's almost nine, so everything he does is a little fierce!)

I took some photos of the kids climbing trees, but they move so much and never do a 'nice''s always a crazy face with the tongue and the cross-eyes...

I didn't visit my mum, since she has some kind of gross cold. So I sent my love down the telephone line, and felt sooky for a second or two.

As usual, I concluded very quickly that my problems are miniscule. I send my love out to all the new mums out there who might be having a rough day, and those who've lost their mum, and even those who would give a limb to be a mother... big hugs. XXX

Verbs are doing words

Drinking - Coffee... always coffee. On a rare day off with my best guy, we drink coffee and eat cake.

Polishing - the final photos of some new earrings, soon to be seen in MiuAndUmi, yay!

Watching - The new series 'Dirk Gently' on iView. I still can't help but think of Steve Mangan as Guy Secretan from Green Wing, one of the funniest and wrongest shows I've ever seen on TV. In a good way!
Watch this and tell me you didn't laugh...

It's a braid new world

It was one of those rare occasions when little Miss would let me braid her hair, and it looked so sweet I had to take a photo. I've been braiding my hair a bit lately, inspired by A Beautiful Mess and all the gorgeous braids tutorials they share. Try it out - just be prepared for a little frustration at first. Darn fingers!!!
