The end of the holidays

MinisaurusIt’s been a wonderful Easter holidays and we’re all feeling more than a little sad that it’s back to school tomorrow. At bedtime this evening we sat and and I asked what Kitty and Ozzy’s favourite bits of the holidays have been, they said:

Rooster

This weeks portraits are carrying on the black and white theme *strokes chin in an artistic manner*.

At the bottom is lovely Rooster, son of HPMcQand now bessie mate of Ozzy, taken on a day…

To make these super sweet and simple Easter nests I popped to Waitrose and my local florists and bought the following…

Cacti in the RSH Wisley Glasshouse
What a week it’s been, glorious sunshine, some lovely meet ups with blogging chums and over 1,500 photos taken. It’s been brilliant and I feel on top of the world. The photos today are taken from our trip to RHS Wisley on Monday with the lovely Charly and Poppy, who regular joiners-in will know as PODcast. The trip was the main offender of most photos taken this week, so many so that I’m going…

We even build cars and then raced them on tracks.

I have to say it is a great place to take children!

Over all I loved how clean and airy the Museum was. I could have eating of the floor clean! I will say it was a bit disappointing the Mummy exhibit was not in yet because we were unaware of that before we purchased our tickets. That was a bummer! This is great for kids 2 and up! The price of…

Trout, asparagus & fennel salad

Trout, asparagus & fennel salad

Trout, asparagus & fennel salad I found the loveliest Jame Oliver recipe in one of the Sunday paper magazines this last weekend, the second I clapped eyes on it the Klaxon of Spring went off in my head and I knew we needed to make it. So we did, for tea yesterday – enjoyed whilst sat in the garden in the glorious sunshine. Happy days!

This serves 2 very hungry adults…
