Tigerlilly Quinn: Our Weekend in Pictures

Our Weekend in Pictures

 ^^ he told me I was his best friend the other day and when I kiss him goodnight he tells me 'you are the best mummy in the whole wide world'…I'm cherishing this time when he is a mummy's boy ;) ^^
^^ Wilf has a new ride! Review post coming soon ^^
^^ a little cosy spot for his dinosaurs ^^

We had a fairly chilled weekend this weekend just gone. I took a break from deadlines and hung out with some friends on Friday evening which was much needed. With a slightly fuzzy head on Saturday we decided to just stay local visit the park, explore in the wood and head home for naps and a lazy afternoon.

On Sunday I visited a vintage wholesalers and picked up a few bits for the shop (yep I'm sharing this time not just keeping for myself ;)) so I'll be adding those as soon as I have a spare minute! We had coffee/babyccino's at Bocca Bar which was the first time we had visited, it's a great space, I'm looking forward to returning and trying out their eggs benedict. Wilf took a few of his dinosaurs which came in the box of old toys my parents sent us, seriously this child has more toys than a playgroup these days! He's really gotten into imaginative play lately and uses his dinosaurs and plastic animals in various scenarios, I love hearing the little conversations he makes them have with each other.

After coffee we headed into town to meet family and grab a bite at the MShed before headed home for the afternoon. Lately I have been feeling utterly exhausted so I even napped on Saturday and Sunday when Wilf did. Maybe it was a sign as he has refused him nap ever since, I'm so not ready for him to drop them!

I've had a few questions lately about the camera and editing I use for my pictures. I actually upgraded from a Canon EOS 550D to a 700D last week, mainly because I want a DSLR that has video capacity too. I loved my 550 but I have to say you can really tell the difference in quality with the upgrade!

I use RedLab* to edit all my pictures :)

If you want to hear about some of the apps I use you can see my little video here

Glad you liked Boca Bar, I need to give it another go. The one time we went, a Sunday, it was overrun with children, in fact it was like a soft play with roast dinner.

Oana Chirila said...

What a lovely idea, seems like you had a weekend full of fun and quality time together!

I love this post and you always take the best photos. We have only been to Boca Bar once and loved it so I must go back. You always make me want to get out and take more photos! :) x

Gorgeous photos as always. Sounds like a chilled and yet productive weekend. :-) x

abigail said...

Sounds like a lovely weekend! That's such a sweet thing for Wilf to come out with, the other day the proclaimed (loudly!) "Mummy, you're a superhero!" I was pretty chuffed with that!

Wilf's new pushchair looks very snazzy! I love seeing what people have done over a weekend - so nosy ;) Sounds like my kind of weekend. I so want your camera!!

Polly Davies said...

looks like a perfect weekend :D I'm thinking of upgrading my camera too, this one's old and getting a little unreliable, having video option on it too would be amazing
