Hasn't it been a miserable couple of weeks weather-wise! I was really hoping for some sunshine this weekend so we could put up the Cath Kidston play-tent in the garden! It certainly doesn't sound like we will be able to. I don't know about everyone else, but this recent bad weather has left me feeling very lethargic and at a bit of a loss for blog inspiration. We were, at least, treated to a little sunshine at the start of this week, and we made the most of it while it lasted;
Tea in the garden with some Cornish icecream for pudding;
It was nice to sit outside and have a browse through some of my old books from when I was a child, i'm so pleased now that I kept them and can enjoy the familiar tales with Mia and Baby Boy;
I still collect Usborne books, especially vintage copies, these have given me so many lovely ideas for things to do with the children;
Lots of lovely old nature stories, perfect for a (rare!) sunny summer's evening;
I'm dreaming now of nature walks in the woods, camping in the garden and fishing for minnows in the river (and putting them back afterwards, of course!) - I think these things are so important for children to experience, sadly I think many of them don't these days.
Just a reminder that tomorrow evening, 6pm, my Pretty Nostalgic magazine giveaway will end and Mia will be picking the winner from the hat - good luck everyone and there's still time to enter to be in with a chance of winning the lovely magazine and box of "mystery" goodies!
