Our Weekend In Pictures


Our Saturday mornings are even more precious now I am volunteering in the pop up shop in the afternoons.

Wilf sleeps in the stroller as we take a walk to the park, grabbing a coffee before he wakes. The sun just starts to come out properly, perfectly timed for him waking up and he tells us he wants to get out, out! 
Taking so much enjoyment in just being outside, running, stopping to look at a stone or a leaf. The play park itself is ignored, there is so much more fun in just climbing steps, shrieking with glee just to be in the fresh air.

Welcome Spring, you took your sweet time!

Tom and Wilf are both wearing (almost matching) Vans that the nice people at Allsole sent us. You can see Wilf's here and Tom's here. One of the many perks of being a blogger lets be honest is getting gifts like this. It's one thing getting sent something for yourself but I tell you when someone offers to treat the ones you love, well it goes a long way. And come on don't they look SO cute??

Later that day I went for my shift at the shop. I thought it would take a while to get used to, this being in the working word again, but no it's returned like second nature. One thing I wasn't expecting though was to be alone in the shop when a huge seagull flew in, browsed the fragile items then proceeded to fly into the window again and again. I'm not quite sure how I managed to get him out, it was certainly a surreal moment. Afterwards I stood there at the window in a kind of stunned 'did that really happen?' moment. It did, looking up to find a passer by laughing at me confirmed it. I don't blame him, it must have looked pretty hilarious.

The last time I was stuck in a confined space with a panicked flapping bird I was 14, it was a sparrow, I donned goggles to usher it out and protect my eyes. How do these things keep happening to me? Has this ever happened to any of you??

I love their matching shoes. That is my favourite thing about not having a girl is having my boys match their dad. Nothing is cuter.

So cute that they almost match! Be still my heart - little shoes are so adorable. Looks like you are taking full advantage of spring weather!

So cute!
When I was a child, a pigeon (or some kind of bird) flew in through my bedroom window and I've been terrified of birds ever since haha!

Oh those green shoes are cute, I love the sound of your saturday mornings. Glad to hear it's going well in the shop.

P.S. You are clearly a Tippi Hedren mark #2 and could make a fine sequel to The Birds! :) xx

When I was at uni, one of my housemates had a cat, who caught this bird, and brought it into our house ALIVE. It was flying around upstairs and myself, plus two other housemates locked ourselves in the bathroom for an hour whilst this bird flapped back and forth along the hallway, fecking terrifying! She's still my mate though, was Godmother to my daughter on Sunday!

fritha strickland said...

@Briley - I'm not surprised, there is something so scary about the unpredictable-ness of a trapped bird! x

never! a close encounter with a seagull would freak me the hell out - sounds like you were a lot calmer than I would have been.

And Saturday morning park visits are the best. Also matching father/son shoes.

Hope you have a great weekend xx

oh my god I would be terrified! I had a sparrow in my room once, and it took me about half an hour to shoo him out. I'm not sure I could have done it with a seagull, they're scary. Once I was by the seaside having fish and chips and one landed on my head and stole a bit of fish out of my hand!

super cute photos by the way!
