I’ve been having a few technical issues of late, hopefully they’re all resolved now and I can crack on with the business of blogging! A few favourites from last week’s link ups. I’m thrilled to see a few new names popping up and seeing all the wonderful photos. Click on any of the photos above to see more.

This little one is really enjoying having pets. She’s too young really to remember our dog so this is the first time she’s able to get involved with the animal care. She loves the hens so much, maybe even a little too much…she always wants to feed and cuddle them and unfortunately for her, the love is not reciprocated.

I’m so happy to have my blog back online after a week of problem with the domain hosting. At one point, I really thought everything had been deleted (might have cried…) so it’s a relief that that’s not the case. I didn’t realise just how much this blog meant to me!

We haven’t really done anything terribly exciting of late. We have spent the last two Saturdays visiting museums with the kids and for about 30 seconds my pre-children fantasies of what weekends with kids would be like are realised. It really amazes me just how much they take in on these visits – I think that my voice has just become noise to them and that they don’t actually pay any attention so when they tell me something that they learnt later, I’m a bit “Woah, how do you know that?”. Or they’re just geniuses. Could be that.

I think I was hoping for snow over the weekend more than they were! Sadly there wasn’t much here and it didn’t last for very long. They wanted to take out their bike and scooter in the snow…don’t ask…

I found towards the end of last year that I was taking less photos of my family and it’s something that I’ve really missed doing. I do love a photo project and so when Clare from Maybush Studio mentioned the Home Life Project, I was all over it! The idea is to capture an ordinary day at home and all those little details you might otherwise miss.  You can read more about it HERE.

Our Sunday was a quiet one. We pottered around the house and Simon made a Sunday roast while I made Eve’s Pudding for afters. I love a good old granny style pudding with loads of custard, especially on a horrid winter’s day. My family came to visit for the afternoon and brought along the Christmas presents that we weren’t able to fit the car (like the scooter and bike…these kids aren’t spoilt at all…). My good friend Rebs is moving house at the end of the month and needed to find a new home for her chickens and we were more than happy to adopt them! Bevan wanted to name them and so we now have Rose, Martha, Amy and Clara. I wonder if you can guess where the inspiration for those names came from?
