we're just pottering around close to home these days as we adjust to the new school routines. we went to the nearby park today before home time. i find myself looking for things that would interest him as we spend the days keeping busy, but always awaiting his return. he likes to ride his scooter home so we often bring it with us. this little one he gets so excited and speed crawls to the door when it's time to go and collect him. the days are so different now. it's safe to say i, we, yes even the baby, really miss him.

at the weekend

we had a picnic on friday night in a park near us with huge trees, where we sat and ate chicken with orange and tomato glaze from my new favourite cookbook and a boot fair find apples for jam. and explored, climbed trees, made fairy houses and looked at the sky. such a nice evening. on sunday still trying to soak up the last of the sunshine we went to the same place for an apple day. of course i forgot my camera, and we couldn't find a toffee apple anywhere, but still it was fun, the children played and the grown ups drank locally brewed cider and we all ate beech nuts from the tree we were sitting under until it was time to go home with handfuls of colourful leaves and lots to dream about.

hope you had a lovely weekend,

tea and toast

i'm on my 3rd cup already or is it 4th?! it's a yummy chai by clipper and homemade jam by the little sis, but still, that doesn't make up for the unsettling feeling that has taken hold. the baby is in bed and my big boy is at school. yes i know i can't quite believe it. i thought it was still summer, that there was plenty of time left. but autumn is rearing it's lovely crisp, cool, colourful head and that means big changes for all of us here especially for my just turned 4 year old. and at the moment i'm not feeling too good about it.

hope you had a lovely summer,

and see you soon i hope,
