Soul Stuff #1
Perfectly toasted leftover marshmallows for a nutritious Sunday breakfast start to the day...
(the Small prefers ’em ‘raw’).
Soul Stuff #2
A couple of good friends over and a still, crisp, perfect evening for another outdoor fire, with mulled wine and a slooooow cooked dinner perched on knees. Followed by some more of this business...
before knackered kids were packed to bed.
Soul Stuff #3
Some soft and soothing knittery...
...which ended up looking like this:
but only until that sloooow cooked dinner was eaten around the fire.
(currently soaking in something promising removal of slow cooked osso bucco).
Soul Stuff #4
Quite some of that knitting happened rugged up, basking in wintry sun warmth, lounging in this:
(feeling the luckiest of ducks).
Soul Stuff #5
A day at the Zoo, revisiting the Mr’s hippo play sculptures...
Kids so disappointed the fun sprinkler elements are hibernating for the season. Parents so very relieved.
Soul Stuff #6
ART and ONE MILLION DOLLARS left in our letter box.
Both received with great excitement by the Small as this wobbly lower lip Mum looked on. Here’s to your grand (only five years, alrighty?), New York adventure, excellent family.
Soul Stuff #7
YOU. Thank you for letting me have my meltdown and for picking me up and dusting me off. For making copious cups of tea (with cake!) and, well, mostly just for lending an ear.
MUCH BETTER NOW.
