Our Weekend In Pictures

The festive season is always super busy for us, with Wilf's birthday (and all his little friend's birthdays) plus anniversaries, xmas work meals (tom), nursery Christmas parties and general social commitments it's hard to find the time to just chill out.

We wanted to get together with some of our friends for some child free time before they left to visit their folks for Christmas. One of our neighbours and I have agreed on a babysitting swap but being such a busy time of year our diaries just didn't match and we found ourselves without anyone to watch Wilf. Instead we invited our friends over for a chilled evening of drinks and a takeaway and it turned out to be kind of perfect. It's reminded us we need to make an effort to do more of it in the new year.


On Saturday morning I set off to sell at the Harbourside Market with my good friend and felter extraordinaire Lizzie.  It was so much fun to sit and chat with her for the day, I was good and managed not to spend any money on the other stalls (usually my un-doing) although I was very tempted by the band posters from the Jack Knife stall and the Red Bird Makes stall too! I did treat myself to a festive Falafal King though!


Sunday marks the start of my actually holidays! Although the shop is still open to take orders they will not be posted until the 2nd which gives me some time to spend with my little family. I'm really looking forward to some chill out time and I have a few amazing guest posts coming up on the blog also (as I try to take a break here too…maybe..lets see how that goes ;))

I treated my boys to a brunch in our local veggie cafe and Wilf got a hot chocolate which is becoming a lovely treat for him. He has even started to suggest we go to the cafe some afternoons and he will sit and sip it off the spoon ever-so-carefully. All in all it's been a kind of perfect weekend, some quality time with friends as a couple, some festive work and some time with my boys!

Wish you all a very lovely Christmas!

Wilf seems a lot like Billy, he loves his babycino in our local Waitrose. Today he even chose going for coffee rather than the park...a bit worrying!!

My husband and I have decided to start frequenting the local coffee shop on Saturday mornings with our little babe. Instead of giving our money to Starbucks during the week, we will have self control and hold out for a leisurely morning together. Better for our budget, better to be supporting a local business, and good for our babe to learn how to be a big girl in a laid back environment. Yesterday over raspberry hot chocolate and gingerbread coffee cake, she greeted everybody in the shop, most of them multiple times. Luckily they were appreciative of a cute little babe and didn't seem too annoyed, as I probably would have been, pre-baby. However, I am waiting for the day when she can sit there nicely and not crawl around the sofa quite so much.
